Produce a Higher Value, More Uniform Product at a Lower Production Cost

The patented cutter mill on The Beast utilises a cutter body or holder that is shaped just like a chainsaw tooth. The raker in front of the tooth regulates the size of the bite or cut. Not only is the product more uniform, but the machine also uses less energy to break down material, so the machine runs smoother and more efficiently.

Plus this mill cuts in a downward motion, providing much greater control of the material being reduced because you are not fighting gravity and the teeth from the mill are not pushing back against the feed system.

The Bandit Beast® Model 3680XP Horizontal Grinder Will Process Nasty Material With Limited Material Preparation

The power of the in-feed conveyor will amaze. The in-feed conveyor and feed wheel have multiple speed control and is equipped with an auto-feed system that backs material out of the cut when the engine lugs. The machine can be equipped with a proportional drive system that automatically adjusts the feeding of material to the engine load.

Convert the Bandit Beast® Model 3680XP Horizontal Grinder into a High-Production Chipper

The teeth on the standard cutter mill can be replaced with chipper knives to produce a uniform screened chip that can be sized from a 6 mm chip that we call bio-sawdust up to a standard 20 mm chip.

For the Serious Chip Producer, We Offer a Chipping head option

A dedicated chipping drum is also available to produce a variety of end products. An 8-blade drum produces a 25 mm chip. The same 8-blade drum with four pockets blocked off produces a standard 51 mm maxi chip that is ideal for top loading biomass burners or uses in charcoal and metallurgical applications. A 20-blade drum to produce a 6 mm micro chip is available.

Improvements Made to the Bandit Beast® Model 3680XP Horizontal Grinder in 2015 Increased the Productivity of the Machine By Approximately 50% in Many Applications

More than 35 specific enhancements, including a faster mill speed and a faster in-feed speed, allow the Bandit Beast® Model 3680XP Horizontal Grinder to process more than 270 meters of green waste per hour while still maintaining its ability to process large-diameter material effectively.

Towable and Self-Propelled Diesel Powered

The towable unit is easily transported and available with a ring or fifth wheel hitch. The self-propelled unit is ideal clearing because you can take The Beast to the material.

A self-propelled unit adds great utility for working in a landing because you can move the unit without a towing a pintle for land yard or vehicle.

Mulch Needs Vary, and the Bandit Beast® Model 3680XP Horizontal Grinder Can Produce Mulch For All Markets

With the wide array of teeth and screens available and the control that The Beast has over the material entering the mill, The Beast can produce mulch of any size and produce it from a wide variety of materials, including urban green waste, pallets, sawmill and logging residues and clearing waste. Coloured mulch can be produced in the Bandit Beast® Model 3680XP Horizontal Grinder by adding the optional colouring attachment.

There Are So Many Applications For the Bandit Beast® Model 3680XP Horizontal Grinder in the Biomass Market

The Bandit Beast® Model 3680XP Horizontal Grinder provides fuel to many biomass plants. It is the primary breakdown and sizing machine producing a screened product for many wood-fired boilers. It processes woody material from recycling yards, woodyards, sawmills and logging operations. It is the go-to machine for processing agricultural residues, including hay, straw, cane and a wide variety of grasses. It is also one of the only machines that will effectively size stringy materials like eucalyptus bark.

Going to a blade setup allows the machine with the standard head to produce a common fuelwood chip or bio-sawdust for producing pellets.

Replacing the standard cutter mill with a chipper drum converts the Bandit Beast® Model 3680XP Horizontal Grinder into an extremely high-production chipper.

Land Clearing Machine

No other grinder is better suited for land clearing because of the Bandit Beast® Model 3680XP Horizontal Grinder’s superior ability to process solid wood and stumps. One machine to recycle all clearing waste into fuel wood or mulch, or grind or cut it fine enough to quickly decompose on site, making it a great unit for clearing land for farming in the material can be diced into the soil, adding nutrients.
