Chip Large Limbs And Trees With Limited Prep

The Bandit Intimidator™ 20XP Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper easily handles tops and forked limbs because of the chipper’s large throat opening and Bandit’s proven Slide Box Feed System. This system features a powerful top feed roller that is 810 mm wide x 400 mm diameter, and a bottom feed wheel roller that is 800 wide x 270 mm in diameter. The feed rollers are positioned within inches of the chipping blades, effectively controlling even the wildest trees and branches. This reduces trimming time and labour costs while increasing production.

Crush And Compress Material Quicker

Limby whole trees are chipped quickly and efficiently by the Intimidator 20XP with virtually no prep work required. The wide chipper opening and sloped infeed system help to crush, compress and funnel limby whole trees into the feed system, making it easy to feed and process stubborn material that rival chippers struggle to handle. And with aggressive engine options over 300 HP, the Intimidator™ 20XP has plenty of power to tackle big projects.

Efficient Production

The synchronised feed system never underfeeds the drum or forces material against it. The chip discharge system includes deep blade pockets, a smooth transition/discharge chute and the patented Power Slot, discharging chips while using much less energy. This also significantly reduces idle time due to the more productive chipper infeed system.

Significantly Less Maintenance

The Bandit Intimidator™ 20XP Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper has a heavy, reinforced drum with more internal support. The drum, feed system and related Bandit components should last the lifetime of the chipper and are backed by a five-year GUTS warranty. Solid welded construction with heavy-duty materials throughout the Bandit Intimidator™ 20XP Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper help ensures long life and trouble-free performance with less downtime for maintenance.

More High-Quality Chips Per Load

The Bandit Intimidator™ 20XP Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper throws chips with more force due to the pocket design, smooth transition, smooth discharges and the patented Power Slot. This impressive machine has been known to fill 12 m trailers in 45 minutes, and with Bandit’s legendary chip throwing power you’ll pack more chips per load. Chips from Bandit chippers have better uniformity compared to rival machines and often preferred by mills and biomass producers.
