Standard Features

 The cutting system of Model 2890XP offers enormous dimensions and power so the need to reposition the unit is minimized. A strong 25 inch diameter by 1-1/2 inch thick cutterwheel is driven by a polychain belt run by a hydraulic motor. Using over-sized bearings, the side loads and shock loads associated with the sweeping patterns of grinding are more absorbed and contained. This ultimately reduces stresses and vibration cast upon other components of the machine promoting a longer life for your stump grinder. At the job site, the cutterwheel on the Model 2890XP can swing an immense 74 inches to cover a broad area of the ground surface. In combination with a cutting height of 31-1/2 inches and sinking to a cutting depth of nearly 26 inches, the volume of material that can be processed from one position is impressive.  
 When it comes to operator controls and travel, the Model 2890XP offers a lot of flexibility. The standard unit comes equipped with a swing-out operator console with joystick controls, Lexan protective window, and rubber drop down curtain.  
 A popular option is upgrading to a radio remote control with tether back-up. This remote can control the cutter wheel up and down movement, cutter wheel swing (left or right), the cutter wheel bump down feature, throttle, cutter wheel engagement, all drive functions, and emergency stop from a distant location. It also allows the operator to seek out a position for better visibility when grinding.  
 Four-wheel drive power, with hydraulic motors for each wheel, comes standard to enhance the unit's ability to traverse hilly, muddy, or swampy areas. The motors on each wheel are equipped with brakes to firmly hold the unit in place while grinding. Despite the size, power, and options on the Model 2890XP, the machine remains compact enough to navigate through a 36 inch gate when the dual tires are removed.   
 An optional hydraulic grading blade is available and recommended for assisting with the cleanup after a stump is removed. This option can reduce the amount of manual labor involved in either removing the chips or filling in the remaining hole. Choose between 35 or 53 inch widths.  
 All Bandit stump grinders, including the Model 2890XP, are built with a solid chassis construction using continuous steel welds as opposed to bolt-together techniques to provide years of dependable service for homeowners, rental companies, tree care companies, and land clearing operations. A full palette of standard and custom paint colors give you the freedom to choose the look of your brand or company.  
 The Model 2890XP, as with all Bandit stump grinders, is also designed with operator safety in mind. With standard devices such as guards, switches, and locking pins, Bandit stump grinders can provide years of dependable and productive service in combination with proper training. Components on these machines are also easily accessible to save time on routine maintenance schedules and reduce downtime by being more serviceable out in the field. Backed by a factory and worldwide dealer support network for parts and service, Bandit stump grinders have earned the reputation of being best economical decision you can make for a long-term investment stump grinder.
