Bandit 18XP & 18HD – 18″ Drum Style Wood Chipper

The 18” capacity Bandit chippers are some of our most popular hydraulic-feed drum-style chippers. The Model 18XP and 18HD feature 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).

Two engine options are available. The Bandit 18XP features a 142HP CAT C4.4. Its bigger brother is the Bandit 18HD, featuring a 185HP Cummins QSB6.7 Cummins.

Also standard is Bandit’s patented hydraulic safety bump bar, Auto Feed Plus and the hydraulic winch to make the tough jobs easy. The 18XP and 18HD feature a huge in-feed 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.
