Chip Branches with Limited Preparation

The Bandit Intimidator™ 12XP Hand-Fed Wood Chipper easily handles branches with its large throat opening and Bandit’s proven Slide Box Feed System. This system features powerful dual horizontal feed rollers 430 mm wide x 190 mm in diameter, powered by 15.9 CID hydraulic motors. The feed rollers are positioned within centimetres of the chipping blades, effectively processing even the wildest trees and branches. This reduces trimming time and labour costs while increasing production.

Approximately 30% More Fuel Efficient

The chipper drum in the Bandit Intimidator™ 12XP Hand-Fed Wood Chipper turns at a low RPM and has more torque. The synchronised feed system never underfeeds the drum or forces material against it. The chip discharge system includes deep blade pockets, a smooth transition/discharge chute and the patented Power Slot, discharging chips while using much less energy. This also significantly reduces idle time due to the more productive chipper in-feed system. These features translate to a fuel savings of approximately 30%.

Significantly Less Maintenance

The Bandit Intimidator™ 12XP Hand-Fed Wood Chipper has a heavy, reinforced drum with internal baffles. The chipper drum and shaft should last the lifetime of the chipper and are backed by a five-year GUTS warranty. Rugged construction and heavy-duty components throughout the Bandit Intimidator™ 12XP Hand-Fed Wood Chipper help ensure long life and trouble-free performance. We realise what it costs when a chipper is down, and though we can’t eliminate all downtime, we do our best to minimise it.

Higher Quality Chips Per Load

The Bandit Intimidator™ 12XP Hand-Fed Wood Chipper throws chips with more force due to the pocket design, the larger drum diameter, smooth transition, smooth discharges and the patented Power Slot. This means more chips per load and fewer trips to the dump site. It also means chips from a Bandit chipper have better uniformity compared to rival machines, commanding higher prices when sold and making them easier to dispose of.

Greater Blade Life

Compared to most competitors the Bandit Intimidator™ 12XP Hand-Fed Wood Chipper has double the blades and double the cuts per revolution. Blades in the Bandit Intimidator™ 12XP Hand-Fed Wood Chipper do not dull as quickly. Blade maintenance costs, fuel consumption and vibration are all reduced.
