The Model 150XP is the most compact of three 12 inch disc-style chippers available from Bandit. This unit has been designed for those who want an economically priced machine while having the advantages of a 12 inch capacity chipper. It is also highly maneuverable and built using solid steel welded construction so it will provide years of dependable service for tree care services, rental companies, and individual owners wanting to chip brush, limbs, and some whole trees. The Model 150XP features a 14 inch by 17 inch chipper opening and a large 29 inch by 35 inch infeed opening area to process material with limited trimming. Both gas and diesel engine options are available from 74 to 140 horsepower.
|The Model 150XP boasts a powerful dual-feed system that features 2 horizontal feed wheels that are 7-1/2 inches in diameter by 16-3/8 inches wide powered by (2) 15.5 CID hydraulic motors situated in Bandit's patented and proven slide box feed system. With plenty of pulling and compressing power to process limby, hard-to-manage material, production is increased while trimming and chainsaw work are reduced with this feed system. A fast feed rate of 90 feet per minute can easily keep two people busy feeding it. Material is fed and chipped at 45-degree angle to the chipper disc, also making it effective at rapidly slicing and shearing through woody materials.|
|The approximate weight of this unit, depending upon selected options, is 5,800 pounds. This includes the durable 40 inch diameter by 2 inch thick chipper disc and solid chassis construction using continuous steel welds as opposed to bolt-together techniques. Component weight is distributed and supported on a sturdy, balanced frame that provides the necessary physical reinforcement for chipping while allowing the machine to be towed easily. The Model 150XP rides on a single 7,000 pound EZ-Lube Torflex axle, along with (2) 245/75R 16 inch tires.|
|A 29 gallon fuel tank provides for more than a day's worth of fuel for the Model 150XP, and the hydraulic tank measures in at 12 gallons. The discharge on the Model 150XP can manually rotate 360 degrees and has an adjustable deflector for directional control of the broadcasted chips. Optional upgrades including a reversing auto feed system, swivel and height adjustable discharge options, hydraulic winch, hydraulic lift cylinder, and wider infeed tray options. Deluxe option packages and / or bundles are available. A full palette of standard and custom paint colors gives you the freedom to choose the look to fit your brand or company.|
|The Model 150XP, as with all Bandit chippers, is designed and equipped with operator safety in mind. Standard items that accommodate any chipper package include guards that cover all moving parts, engine disabling plugs, disc / drum locks, wooden push paddles, safety control bar, and other Bandit patented and patent pending devices such as the "last chance" cables. Also, all components on Bandit chippers are designed to be easily accessible to save time on routine maintenance schedules and to reduce downtime by being more serviceable out in the field. Thus, Bandit chippers have proven over time to be the best economical decision you can make for a long-term investment in a brush chipper.|
