Bandit - 1890 Brush Bandit Wood Chipper

Model 1890  (18" Drum Style) Brush Chipper

Bandit 1890 Brush Chipper

The Model 1890 standard is a dependable drum style chipper that has the same capacity as our 1890hd, but comes with smaller horsepower options.  

The 1890 standard is equipped with engine options up to 140 horsepower and comes with an 20 1/2" X 24" chipper opening.  This unit will process material up to and including 18 inches in diameter.

The 1890 standard unit has a proven, powerful feed sytem that is capable of pulling whole trees into the chipper.  Even forked and crotchy pieces are chipped with ease through this rugged machine.  Our 37 inch diameter drum is positioned within inches of the feedwheels providing plenty of pulling power.  Our over sized drum is quite bigger than most of our competitor's 22 inch diameter drums.  This means that our 1890 chips most of the material on the bottom half of the drum.  Drum chippers do not throw their chips as far as disc chippers do, so we have designed the 1890 so it will be capable of filling end opening chip vans.  There are numerous pockets located on the side of the drum that catch the chips as they come off the knife.  These pockets have been enlarged to increase their carrying capacity and throwing velocity.  The 1890 standard is also available with a super-sized feed system, this option does not increase the opening into the chipper but does make it easier to process limbier matieral.  If light land land clearing presents itself, than why not order this unit with a Caterpillar 305CR rubber track undercarriage.  With this feature the chipper can be taken to the tree, reducing the need to forward or skid.  A radio remote with the following functions control most of the chipper functions: chipper forward/reverse, chipper left/right, yoke up/down, throttle up/down, and emergency shut down.  There is also another remote if a hydraulic winch is ordered.  This allows for whole trees to be pulled into the chipper which will reduce operator fatigue and the use of a chainsaw.  So if you want a dependable and compact hand fed chipper that will process whole trees than consider the 1890 standard.
