The Intimidator 20XP is Bandit’s most compact drum-style whole tree chipper and doesn’t skimp on power or production. With a 622 x 667mm throat opening, and engine options options exceeding 224kW, this unit can easily handle larger limbs and even whole treesp in a land or site clearing or right-of-way cleaning operation.

Superior production

The Intimidator 20XP whole tree chipper feature Bandit’s unique in-feed system, which combines to create one of the easiest functioning feeding whole tree chippers on the market.

The Fish Mouth in-feed design guides material toward the in-feed rollers, and the powerful feed system keeps operators busy feeding the Intimidator 20XP instead of repositioning material.

Fully load trailers

Bandit is known throughout the industry for loading wood chip trailers fuller and reducing the number of trips to the dumping site.

This is being done without the need of engine power-robbing, fuel chugging wood chip accelerators.

Maximise your up-time

Bandit’s Intimidator 20XP is constructed to withstand the problems most other competitive chipper brands experience when chipping every day, all day.

Bandit uses only the highest quality components and materials during construction to help ensure that the Intimidator 20XP whole tree chipper will be ready to go to work when you are.

The Intimidator 20XP is built to order, with multiple options to fine tune your whole tree chipper for your job. Choose an engine, in-feed drive systems, remote options, loads and drum options, and get the ideal 20XP whole tree chipper you need.

Go-anywhere track mobility

A Caterpillar steel track undercarriage can be added to the Intimidator 20XP whole tree chipper. This feature allows it to travel over rough terrain not accessible by towable units. It also eliminates the need to forward or skid material to the chipper – the operator can take the chipper to the trees.
