The 18” capacity Model 1590XP has become our most popular hydraulic-feed drum-style chipper. The Model 1590XP features a rugged oversized 37-inch diameter drum, nearly twice the diameter of the opposition's drums, and has a bigger throat opening: an amazing 19.75" x 20.5" (502mm x 521mm). This larger opening allows it to effectively compress limby and crotchy material. Two engine options are available; the CAT 142hp 4 cyl diesel or the 174hp 6 cylinder CAT with the monster 905Nm of torque.

Also standard is Bandit’s Auto Feed Plus and the hydraulic winch to make the tough jobs easy. The Model 1590XP also features a huge infeed hopper that can effectively compress large amounts of brush and trees. This unit is also a great machine for fibrous material because material enters the feed system at a right angle, with the feed wheels positioned very close to the drum. The Model 1590XP has become popular among tree crews and Councils alike because of its large infeed hopper opening, compact size and huge chipping capacity.
