Bandit Intimidator™ 15XP Hand-fed Engine Wood Chipper

The Bandit Intimidator™ 15XP hand-fed wood chipper is quite a popular wood chipper within the 380 mm drum chipper category. This popularity is due to an unbeatable combination of durability, performance and fuel economy.

Chip Branches With Limited Preparation

The Bandit Intimidator™ 15XP 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 470 mm wide by 270 mm in diameter, powered by 32.3 CID hydraulic motors. The feed rollers are positioned within inches of the chipping blades, effectively controlling even the wildest trees and branches. This reduces trimming time and labour costs while increasing production.

Excels at Chipping Large Diameter Materials

The large 940 mm diameter drum allows much of the material to be chipped on the bottom half of the drum, with the grain of the wood like a disc-style chipper. The material is chipped using less energy and with less vibration, maximising fuel economy and reducing maintenance. The large chipper opening and sloped in-feed system makes it easy to feed large logs, branches or smaller whole trees into the chipper.

Approximately 30% More Fuel Efficient

The chipper drum in theBandit Intimidator™ 15XP Hand-Fed Wood Chipper turns at a slower 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

TheBandit Intimidator™ 15XP 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 theBandit Intimidator™ 15XP 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

TheBandit Intimidator™ 15XP 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™ 15XP Hand-Fed Wood Chipper has double the blades and double the cuts per revolution. Blades in the Bandit Intimidator™ 15XP Hand-Fed Wood Chipper do not dull as quickly. Blade maintenance costs, fuel consumption and vibration are all reduced in that you are less likely to operate with dull blades.
