Tree care companies, farmers and municipalities serious about chipping thick limbs and even some whole trees, should look no further than the Bandit Intimidator 15XP BlueLine hand-fed wood chipper.

Featuring a powerful 940 mm diameter drum and generous 489 x 451 throat opening, this wood chipper can take nearly anything you can throw at it.

Bandit’s powerful Slide Box Feed System will pull and compress heavy limbs toward the drum and efficiently chip material, improving your productivity.

Stronger & more rugged package

Bandit’s Intimidator 15XP BlueLine wood chipper is built sturdier and more rugged than its 15XPC counterpart. This wood chipper features a powerful Cummins 82 kW (110HP) engine allowing it to operate at a higher productive rate.

The 15XP BlueLine’s engine combined with a sturdier and more rugged frame and trailer options, will allow operators to chip trees, branches and brush at the maximum diameter for longer hours.

The Bandit BlueLine series is only available in Africa with the trailers and engine options built and fitted at Africa Biomass Company in Worcester, Western Cape, South Africa.

Super-charge your production

Bandit wood chippers are easier to feed, so you’ll be more productive during the day. Bandit’s unique Slide Box Feed System and powerful dual horizontal feed rollers, which are 270 mm in diameter and 432 mm wide and powered by a pair of 32.3 CID hydraulic motors, crush and compress material, easily guiding it to the drum.

Pack wood chip trailers

Bandit is known throughout the industry for packing wood chip trailers to their maximum capacity, reducing the number of trips to the dumping site. Bandit wood chippers feature smooth discharge transitions, eliminate restrictions, and deep blade pockets propel wood chips with tremendous force.

Maximise your uptime

The most common maintenance items are easy to access on Bandit wood chippers. Bolt-in chipper blades are easy to access and change through the wood chipper hood. All service areas are easy to access, including all grease points, so daily maintenance is simple and quick.

Reduce your fuel costs by up to 30%

The Bandit 15XP BlueLine wood chipper’ drum turns at a lower RPM with greater torque, and the synchronised feed system never underfeeds or forces material against the drum. The result is a more efficiently fed wood chipper that reduces idle time, and translates to fuel saving by up to 30%.
