The Model 200UC Utility Chipper is designed specifically for utility line and right-of-way maintenance contractors. It is a compact, light-weight, 12 inch capacity chipper that offers both speed and maneuverability for these types of crews. Built using solid steel welded construction, it will provide years of dependable service. With a standard feed rate of 90 feet per minute (upgradeable to 120 feet per minute) and engine options ranging from 74 to 97 horsepower, it is an affordable solution to high production needs.
|The Model 200UC comes equipped with a powerful dual-feed wheel feed system consisting of (2) 7-1/2 inch diameter by 16-3/8 inch wide feed wheels within the patented Bandit slide box system. This system easily pulls and compresses material into the chipper with over 1,600 pounds of pulling power for each feed wheel, reducing the need to trim or reposition material while increasing productivity. The Model 200UC has a 29 inch high by 35 inch wide tapered infeed hopper with a 30 inch fold-down infeed tray sloped for easier feeding of material. It can be configured with a feed rate of 90 feet per minute (standard for a 1/2 inch chip) with an option to boost to 120 feet per minute. 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 4,500 pounds. This includes the durable 40 inch diameter by 1-1/4 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 yet allowing the machine to be towed easily. A 5,200 pound Torflex axle along with (2) 225/75R 15 inch tires are standard on the 200UC but optional upgrades are available to suit your needs.|
|A 24-1/2 gallon fuel tank provides for more than a day’s worth of fuel for the Model 200UC. The hydraulic tank holds 12 gallons. The discharge on the Model 200UC 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, 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 of your brand or company.|
|The Model 200UC, 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.|
