The Bandit The Beast® Model 1680XP Horizontal Grinder Will Produce a More Uniform Product at a Lower Cost Per Ton or Yard

Because of the controlled bite produced by a special raker head on each cutter-body, The Beast recycler cuts more than grinds, so the energy needed to break materials down is significantly reduced, reducing the shock load to the mill and the entire machine. As a result, fuel consumption per tonne of material processed is significantly reduced and the machine will handle larger material without the need for operators to break it apart before processing. With a multitude of teeth to choose from, you can select the system that best fits the material that you are processing and your desired end product.

Add Utility for Land Clearing and Yard Applications with a Self-Propelled Bandit Beast® 1680XP Horizontal Grinder

A self-propelled Bandit Beast® Model 1680XP Horizontal Grinder adds great benefits to all operations in that you can take the machine to the trees in clearing applications, and you can position the machine in yards without the need of an additional towing vehicle. The self-propelled version features the proven CAT 312B undercarriage and a radio remote control that allows an operator feeding the Bandit Beast® Model 1680XP Horizontal Grinder to control all functions of the machine.

Electric Powered Machines Reduce Operating Costs in the Right Applications

In applications where the unit can remain stationary, such as sawmills, pallet recycling, some mulch yards, and biomass plants, electric powered units will significantly reduce energy costs. Bandit has a team to assist in providing the motors, starters and electrical components.
