A unique, synchronised four-wheel feed system delivers material to the drum at the rate the chipper wants it, increasing productivity and fuel economy while reducing machine wear and tear.

The stationary discharge chute features a hydraulically operated chip deflector to throw chips up, down, left or right.

Powerful Feed Systems

Bandit’s patented Slide Box Feed System uses direct down pressure, combined with hydraulic power at the feed wheels to aggressively pull in, compress and crush material with minimal trimming.

Unmatched Reliability – Minimal Down Time – Maximum Machine Life

At the heart of the Model 3090 is Bandit’s legendary 940 mm diameter chipping drum. Bandit drums are constructed with oversized shafts and bearings, thick skins made with wear-resistant material, and a rigid internal baffling system that makes them virtually indestructible. These drums, along with the use of high-quality materials, industry standard components and extensive welded construction, serve as the foundation for Bandit’s proven reputation for durability and reliability. They’re also the basis for the industry’s most comprehensive warranty – Bandit’s five-year GUTS warranty that covers the drum, feed system and related components.
