Popular for its great combination of size, production, performance and price, the 508mm capacity Model 2290 whole tree chipper is a favourite for chipping tops and brushy material, either in traditional logging operations or site/land clearing projects.

Its 622 x 667 mm throat opening easily accepts large diameter, brushy material. Dual feed wheels in Bandit’s unique Slide Box Feed System provide the industry’s best pulling and crushing power, while aggressive chip throwing power fully loads trailers in approximately 35-40 minutes.

Superior production

The Bandit Model 2290 whole tree chipper features Bandit’s unique feed system, which combines to create one of the easiest feeding chippers on the market. The Fish Mouth in-feed design guides material toward the in-feed rollers, and the powerful feed systems keeps operators busy feeding the machine 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. Bandit can do it without the need of engine power-robbing, fuel drinking chip accelerators.
