With fuel prices skyrocketing, an Electric Beast horizontal grinder from Bandit Industries is a cost-effective solution. Utilizing heavy-duty WEG electric motors, Electric Beasts offer the same capability and durability of their diesel-powered counterparts while delivering real-world energy savings of up to 70 percent. Separate motors for the hydraulics allow for independent control between the cutter and the hydraulics, and soft-starts for the motors make them utility friendly. Any Beast — from the compact Model 1680 to the 45-inch-capacity Model 4680 — can be converted to electric power. Electric Beasts have a low installation cost, setup is very simple, and they’re easy to operate.
