Standard Features


The 19 inch capacity Model 1890XP is available with engine options ranging from 114 to 225 horsepower. With its solid steel welded construction, proven feed system, durable components, and chip throwing technologies, this chipper provides all of the production advantages of a drum-style chipper. A standard hydraulic lift cylinder provides plenty of down pressure to assist in feeding large, forked, and bushy materials into the large 37 inch diameter by 22 inch wide drum, which rotates with enough force to process many types and densities of wood material. This, in combination with many other standard features and options, make this machine the most versatile 19 inch capacity drum-style chipper available on the market today.

Standard Features

 As with all Bandit hand-fed drum-style chippers (excluding the Model 990XP), the Model 1890XP comes equipped with a large 37 inch diameter drum. The Bandit drum is larger in diameter than most competitive chippers. The larger drum allows for material to be chipped on the bottom half of the drum, giving the knives the opportunity to cut more inline with the grain of the wood instead of against it, thus allowing smoother operation and less vibration while requiring less horsepower. A larger diameter drum also turns slower than a smaller drum, which increases torque to provide a smoother, powerful, and more decisive chipping action. 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 and maneuvered easily.  
 The Model 1890XP is equipped with the same proven, dependable hydraulic feed system you come to expect from a Bandit chipper. The standard feed system features 2 horizontal feed wheels that are 10-5/8 inches in diameter by 20 inches wide, driven by (2) 63.9 CID hydraulic motors. These hydraulic motors generate tremendous pulling power for reeling in and crushing material containing many awkward shaped limbs and branches. The wide profile infeed hopper and tray provide plenty of room for folding material. The feed rate of 100 feet per minute can easily keep two people busy feeding it.  
 The approximate weight of the Model 1890XP, depending upon selected options, is around 9,700 pounds. It boasts a solid chassis construction using continuous steel welds for structural integrity as opposed to bolt-together techniques so it can provide years of dependable service for owners and operators wanting to chip limby, hard-to-manage material and some whole trees without extra trimming and chain saw work. The Model 1890XP rides a single 12,000 pound axle with 235/75R 17.5 inch tires.  
 The Model 1890XP has a much smoother and longer angled transition out of the drum housing and up into the discharge chute. This design allows it to throw material harder, compacting chip trucks better and reducing trips to the dump site. Other factors that maximizes chip throwing power include deep knife pockets that capture and throw the material out of the drum housing, side drum paddles and adjustable side vents that assist in generating proper air flow, and Bandit's patented power slot positioned on the back side of the drum housing that increases air flow and practically eliminates the chance of plugging. The discharge on the Model 1890XP can manually rotate 360 degrees and has an adjustable deflector for directional control of the broadcasted chips.  
 The Model 1890XP comes with a 30 gallon steel hydraulic tank and a 40 gallon steel fuel tank. Recent fuel consumption test results have shown that Bandit drum-style chippers are much more efficient than other chippers in the same category or class when it comes to production output versus costs.  
 Your chipper can be equipped with optional upgrades including a reversing auto feed system, swivel and height adjustable discharge options, hydraulic winch, and a hydraulic pressure check kit. Deluxe option packages and / or bundles are available. A full palette of both standard and custom paint colors gives you the freedom to choose the look of your brand or company.  
 The Model 1890XP, 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.
