1100 x 1500 mm Capacity Delivers Extreme Processing Capability

The Bandit The Beast® Model 4680XP Horizontal Grinder can accept trees and logs nearly four feet in diameter. It can accept extremely large volumes of brush and logging slash, and problematic chunk wood is easily devoured. The wide throat opening on the Bandit The Beast® Model 4680XP Horizontal Grinder also means it can out-produce every other horizontal grinder on the market, creating up to 730 metres of mulch per hour.

Patented Cuttermill – Producing a Higher Value Product at a Lower Production Cost

The Beast’s down-turn cutter mill utilises cutter bodies shaped like a chainsaw tooth. The raker in front of the tooth regulates the size of the cut, creating a product that’s more uniform in size and consistency. Whereas most competitive grinders have upward turning mills, The Beast cutter mill turns down to work with gravity instead of against it and the feed system. This design provides smoother operation with less vibration and is much less likely to throw material out the in-feed, and it allows The Beast to cut, split, grind or chip more material at a lower cost-per-ton.

Convert the Bandit The Beast® Model 4680XP Horizontal Grinder into a High Production Chipper

The large opening and the cutting and splitting action of the Bandit The Beast® Model 4680XP Horizontal Grinder all it to process large diameter trees, stumps and chunk wood better than other grinders. The teeth on the standard cutter mill are easily replaced with Beast chipper blades to produce a uniform screened chip, ranging in size from a 6 mm “bio-sawdust” micro chip to a standard 200 mm chip. The 4680XP discharges chips via the standard discharge conveyor to create piles or load open-top trailers. An optional chip thrower attachment is available to fully load end-opening chip trailers with ease.

Create Products For Multiple Markets With One Machine

The Beast features a wide array of tooth and screen options to produce an impressive range of end-products. Create high-quality mulch in a single primary grind and a regrind from a wide variety of materials, including urban green waste, pallets, sawmill and logging residues, and clearing waste. Private contractors, governmental agencies including municipalities, townships and county governments produce prime landscaping mulch, playground mulch and coloured mulch with the colorizer option. Equipped with Beast blades, the Bandit The Beast® Model 4680XP Horizontal Grinder produces high-quality chips used in a variety of fuel wood markets.

Towable and Self-Propelled to Conquer Any Worksite

The towable Bandit The Beast® Model 4680XP Horizontal Grinder comes with a standard fifth-wheel hitch for transport. Self-propelled track machines are ideal for land clearing and operations in difficult terrain where towable machines just can’t reach. Track models are also favoured in large yards or landings where moving towable units is difficult and time-consuming. And with diesel engine options up to 1200 HP, the Bandit The Beast® Model 4680XP Horizontal Grinder easily has the power to handle the toughest jobs.

Process Dif cult Material That Other Machines Can’t Handle

No other horizontal grinder on the market can handle difficult-to-process material like The Beast. The down-turn cutter mill combined with the wide 1500 mm in-feed opening, powerful in-feed conveyor and feed wheel easily handles large brush bundles, vine material and bulky chunk wood. The in-feed features multiple speed controls and an auto feed system that reverses material when engine RPM drops. The Bandit The Beast® Model 4680XP Horizontal Grinder can also be equipped with a proportional feed system that automatically adjusts feed speed to match engine load.

Available as Stationary Units with High-Power WEG Electric Motors

Stationary electric powered machines are becoming increasingly popular in biomass plants, mulch yards and pallet recycling yards. For electric applications, the Bandit The Beast® Model 4680XP Horizontal Grinder features industry-proven WEG electric motors with up to 1000 HP for exceptional processing capabilities. Electric units come with soft-start motors and all necessary equipment for a quick, easy setup.

The Beast Serves Renewable Biomass Markets Around the World

The Bandit The Beast® Model 4680XP Horizontal Grinder provides fuel to many biomass facilities around the world. Its large capacity and horsepower capability are favoured in high-production operations that deal with large amounts of material. The cutter mill is designed to break down and properly size material for use in a variety of biomass applications, such as wood pellet production or screened products for wood- red boilers. It processes woody material from recycling yards, wood yards, 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 few machines that can effectively size stringy materials like vines, eucalyptus, and coastal vegetation.
