The Bandit Intimidator 15XP PTO hand-fed wood chipper is an ideal option for tree care professionals, municipalities and rental companies looking for a compact, yet powerful 380mm drum wood chipper.

This powerful wood chipper is built stronger by using first-world quality components. The Intimidator 15XP PTO will outperform and outlast other 380mm drum wood chippers in Africa.

More compact package

The wide throat opening with its 610 mm diameter chipping drum weighs approximately 3.26 ton. The compact construction of the Intimidator 15XP PTO makes it easier to be towed by a bakkie, especially in areas where weight restrictions could be a drawback.

Chip limby material faster

The Intimidator 15XP PTO wood chipper features a 610 mm diameter chipper drum with four chipper blades and two in-feed rollers. The powerful feed-wheel motors easily pull and crush limby material entering the wood chipper.

The feed system that is positioned within a few cm’s from the chipper blades increases the effectiveness of the Intimidator 15XP PTO wood chipper.

Lower maintenance

The heavy and reinforced chipping drum features four chipper blades, making two cuts per revolution. The chipping drum, Slide Box Feed System and assembly should last the lifetime of the Intimidator 15XP PTO wood chipper, which is backed by ABC’s warranty.

Greater blade life

The Intimidator 15XP PTO has twice the amount of chipper blades and provides twice the cuts of most competitors.

Bandit’s chipper blades do not dull as quickly therefore saving on maintenance costs and fuel consumption, as well as reducing vibration.

Higher quality chips per load

The Intimidator 15XP PTO throws wood chips with more force due to the pocket design, the larger drum diameter, smooth transition, smooth discharges and the patented Power Slot.

This means more wood chips per load and fewer trips to the dumping site. It also means chips from a Bandit wood chipper have better uniformity compared to rival machines, commanding higher prices when sold and making them easier to dispose of.
