The 18” capacity Model 18XP is one of our most popular hydraulic-feed drum-style chippers. The Model 18XP 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 and feed difficult limby material. Two engine options are available; the CAT 142hp 4 cyl turbo diesel or the 174hp 6 cylinder CAT turbo diesel with a huge 905Nm of torque.
Also standard is Bandit’s patented hydraulic safety bump bar, Auto Feed Plus and the hydraulic winch to make the tough jobs easy. The Model 18XP 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. With over 600 Bandit Model 18XP chippers working in Australia every day, this chipper is a proven performer is our harsh Australian environment.
