Reliable High Production Chipper

Rated as a 20” capacity chipper, the Model 2290 Stationary features a large 670 x 620 mm  throat opening to easily accept large volumes of slabs, edgings, cut offs, and 500 mm diameter roundwood. A 810 mm wide by 690 mm diameter feed wheel mounted in Bandit’s proven Slide Box Feed System controls the  ow of material into the chipper. Processing the material is Bandit’s legendary chipper drum, built on a solid drum shaft with internal baf ing to make the drum assembly virtually indestructible.

Serve Multiple Chip Markets With One Machine

The Model 2290S with a standard drum can produce high-quality dimensional chips in numerous sizes, or opt for Bandit’s popular micro chip drum with twice the knives to produce micro chips. Converting the micro chip drum for conventional chip production is as simple as blocking off knife pockets, allowing operators the flexibility to create a wide range of chip sizes. Serve metallurgical and charcoal markets with large chips, mulch producers and biomass boilers with conventional chips, and wood pellet mills with micro chips.

Produce Semi-Screen Chips

Bandit’s popular card breaker system for whole tree chippers is also available for the Model 2290S. This simple-but-effective device stops larger material from passing through the chipper to produce a precisely sized end product.

Precisely Control Material Entering The Chipper

A remote control regulates the speed of the Model 2290S’s steel in-feed conveyor and feed wheel, giving operators better control over chip size. A faster feed produces a larger chip, while a slower speed produces a longer chip.

Throw Chips Harder Without Chip Accelerators

Proprietary designs for Bandit drum housings and discharge chutes give the Model 2290S incredible chip velocity to fully load the largest chip trailers. For mills using a discharge conveyor, a bottom discharge is available to drop chips onto the conveyor belt.

Durable Design That Is Easy To Maintain

The Model 2290S is built with the same thorough welded construction and attention-to-detail give to all Bandit equipment. Blades are easily accessible for removal and installation. Feed system and hydraulic components are simple to reach and maintain.
