Track-equipped whole tree chippers bring a tremendous level of versatility to the job site. In cases of arduous terrain, track units are often the only option for processing material. Even on more accessible sites, having the broad flexibility of a track chipper can pay dividends for companies large or small, and that’s why Bandit Industries now offers three drum-style models to complement three disc-style track chippers already in production. Each chipper offers several factory options, or they can be custom built to suit the needs of nearly any situation, providing unparalleled levels of accessibility and convenience, backed by Bandit’s exceptional reputation.
The obvious advantage to a self-propelled track chipper is that it can go places a towable unit can’t reach. This holds especially true for companies and contractors involved in land clearing and right-of-way operations, where the terrain can literally range from swampland to mountains with roads few and far between. Even the largest Bandit track chippers possess outstanding flotation and maneuverability, allowing them to work the front lines with surprising accessibility.
Equipped with an optional built-in loader, Bandit track chippers can drive to the trees, feed the material and process it—all with a single machine. Its convenience is rivaled only by the extraordinary cost savings achieved from eliminating other equipment like loaders and skidders. Track models can also be operated by remote control, making them an extremely convenient tool to have on the job site.
Bandit self-propelled whole tree chippers utilize only Caterpillar undercarriages, long regarded as the best track drives in the industry. These whole tree chippers also carry an industry-best five-year “GUTS” warranty, covering the disc/drum and other internal components. Bandit’s whole tree chippers are hand-built using top grade materials and meticulous attention to detail, and they’re backed by the best customer service in the industry. These elements—exceptional quality, durability and service—form the foundation for Bandit’s exemplary reputation.
