Oct. 7,
2010, Remus, MI – Building on the success of its towable model 2290 whole-tree
chipper, Bandit Industries introduces the model 2290 Track.

“The
model 2290 Track is an extremely versatile chipper that will excel in most
every type of land clearing operation,” says Bandit Industries president Jerry
Morey. “Its smaller size makes it particularly useful in situations with spongy
ground or steep inclines, where towable chippers may not be a viable option.”

Driving
the 2290 Track is a Caterpillar 315L undercarriage, featuring a track shoe
width of 600 mm and an approximate ground pressure of 6.3 pounds/square-inch. A
larger Caterpillar 320L undercarriage is optional.

Despite
its compact size, the 2290 Track offers a 20 inch diameter in-feed capacity
with a 30-inch weld-on tray as standard equipment. An optional 5.5-foot infeed
conveyor can be ordered to assist with loading piles of brush or shorter logs.
The 2290 Track features a large 24.5 x 26.25-inch chipper opening, a
high-capacity stationary discharge system, and a variety of engines featuring
up to 440 hp. In this configuration, the 2290 Track can produce more than 50
tons/hour of chips.

As with
Bandit’s entire line of whole-tree chippers, the 2290 Track offers a wide range
of options on everything from horsepower levels to in-feed length, allowing for
plenty of customization. Built-in loaders are a common addition, featuring
backhoe-style units with a lift capacity of 1,750 pounds and a reach of 112
inches. The loader uses a continuous rotation grapple with a swing of 360
degrees, all operated from a comfortable operator’s cab featuring
electric-over-hydraulic joystick controls. Another popular feature for Bandit’s
line of self-propelled equipment is wireless remote control, allowing for
single-person operation.

“The 2290
Track is especially appealing to land clearing contractors who are developing
lots for houses, where some trees are being left on-site,” says Morey. “For the
road and right-of-way clearing and maintenance contractors, the powerful feed
system makes it an ideal machine for chipping trees, tops, and brush from
re-growth under power lines and along highways, where terrain is often sloped
and soggy.”

“Loggers
are also seeing the advantage of having a self-propelled whole-tree chipper
compared to a towable unit,” says Bandit Industries large equipment sales
manager Travis Lint. “They find it easier to position the self-propelled
chipper on a landing, and it’s almost a must for those loggers working in soft,
hilly terrain.”
