Bandit Model 2590 Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper

The Bandit Model 2590 Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper outperforms all other whole tree chippers in its class, striking a perfect balance between size, power and production. Officially rated as a 640 mm capacity chipper, the Bandit Model 2590 Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper’s wide 760 x 670 mm throat opening allows it to easily process large whole tree and limby tops. It’s an established favourite among loggers processing whole trees and logging slash, filling a 35-tonne chip trailer in under 25 minutes. Equipped with a self-propelled track undercarriage, the Model 2590 is also perfect for land clearing operations.

Bandit’s proven reputation for durability and reliability comes from our drum construction, use of high-quality materials and solid welded construction. The 950 mm diameter chipping drum in the Bandit Model 2590 Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper is virtually indestructible with oversized shafts and bearings, thick skins made with wear-resistant material, and rigid internal baffling. That’s why so many Bandit Model 2590 Drum-Style Whole Tree Chippers are still in front-line service after years on the job, and it’s why new Bandit Model 2590 Drum-Style Whole Tree Chippers are backed by a standard five-year GUTS warranty.

Produce a Tonne of Chips Every Minute

The Model 2590’s synchronised feed system delivers material at 37 meters per minute. Combined with a wide throat opening and engine options up to 765 HP, the Bandit Model 2590 Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper can easily chip more than a tonne of chips per minute. The only challenge is keeping this hungry chipper fed!

Throw Chips Harder & Farther While Using 30 Percent Less Fuel

The more chips you can pack per load, the more money you make. Bandit’s proprietary designs for the drum, drum housing and tapered discharge give the Bandit Model 2590 Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper extreme chip throwing power – without the need for a bulky, power-robbing chip accelerator. Accelerators and auxiliary blowers can rob as much as 100 HP from the engine, not to mention the extra maintenance required for upkeep. Compared to competitive chippers with accelerators, a Bandit Model 2590 Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper can use up to 30% less fuel per tonne of chips produced.

Crush & Compress Tops & Trees with Ease

The Bandit Model 2590 Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper’s dual feed wheels make the most of Bandit’s proven Slide Box Feed System, which provides direct down pressure to aggressively pull in, crush and compress large whole trees. Additional trim work is seldom required, even for forked limbs and large crotches.

Bandit’s Clean Feed System Increases Yield By as Much as Five Percent

The Bandit Model 2590 Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper’s unique Clean Feed system limits the discharge of chips that can travel to the rear of the chipper from the in-feed conveyor return. This proprietary system discharges dirt, trash and leaves while leaving chips to pass through the discharge. Capturing these chips can increase yields by as much as 5%.

Serve Multiple Fuel Wood Markets with One Machine

The Bandit Model 2590 Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper can produce a range of dimensional chips for many fuel wood and biomass applications. Bandit’s standard chipping drum is used for common 20 mm chips, while a separate drum style is available to produce large 50 mm chips. Also available is Bandit’s micro chip drum for producing 6 mm micro chips used in wood pellet production. For companies working with multiple chip markets, the micro chip drum can easily be converted to create standard chips by blocking off drum pockets. All drums work in conjunction with the Bandit Model 2590 Drum-Style Whole Tree Chipper’s synchronised feed system and card breakers to produce chips of exceptional quality and uniformity, further serving to build your bottom line.

Get on Track with a Self-Propelled Undercarriage

Land and right-of-way clearing operations are expanding, and the Bandit Model 2590 Drum-Style Track Whole Tree Chipper is a popular choice for contractors requiring high-production with all-terrain capability.
