The Bandit Intimidator 21XP engine-powered hand-fed wood chipper is the ultimate hand-fed wood chipper. With a 533mm diameter chipping capacity, it equips tree care professionals with the tools to tackle even the biggest takedowns and clearing jobs that other companies can’t handle.

The Intimidator 21XP combines large engine power with an unstoppable feed system and a chipping capacity approaching 610m in diameter, yet it’s still easy to manoeuvre through suburban neighbourhoods for jobs large and small.

Maximise your production

The Bandit Intimidator 21XP hand-fed wood chipper easily handles limby material with its large throat opening and Bandit’s proven Slide Box Feed System.

This system features powerful dual horizontal feed rollers 270 mm in diameter and 813 mm wide, powered by 63.9 CID hydraulic motors. The feed rollers are positioned within centimetres of the wood chipping blades, effectively controlling even the wildest trees and branches. This reduces trimming time and labour costs while increasing production.

Maximise your uptime

The Intimidator 21XP engine-powered wood chipper has a powerful drum reinforced with internal baffles. The rugged construction and heavy-duty components throughout the Intimidator 21XP help ensure long life and trouble-free performance.

Bandit knows what it costs when a wood chipper is down, and though Bandit can’t eliminate all downtime, the company has done their best to minimise it. That’s why maintenance items are positioned for easy access.

Tackle the big jobs

The large 940 mm diameter drum allows much of the material to be chipped on the bottom half of the drum, along with the grain of the wood. The material is chipped using less energy and with less vibration, maximising fuel economy and reducing maintenance.

Feed with ease with a Kesla loader

Equip your Bandit Intimidator 21XP hand-fed wood chipper with a powerful remote-controlled extending Kesla loader. Pick up, move and feed material directly into your wood chipper from a remote location, while controlling all functions of the wood chipper from a radio remote control.
