Bandit beltless hydrostatic drive stump grinder

bandit_model2250xpRenters can spend more time grinding stumps and less time adjusting belts with the new model 2250XP self-propelled stump grinder from Bandit Industries. The 2250XP uses a heavy-duty hydrostatic motor to directly power its 20-inch diameter cutter wheel. This eliminates the need for a clutch, jackshaft, drive belt, belt tensioning system and the many sheaves and bearings associated with those components. The result is a competitively priced stump grinder that requires significantly less maintenance than similar machines. Less maintenance means less downtime and lower operating costs, allowing the 2250XP to work longer with less investment in parts and labor.

Renters can spend more time grinding stumps and less time adjusting
belts with the new model 2250XP self-propelled stump grinder
from Bandit Industries. The 2250XP uses a heavy-duty hydrostatic motor to directly power
its 20-inch diameter cutter wheel. This eliminates the need for a clutch,
jackshaft, drive belt, belt tensioning system and the many sheaves and bearings
associated with those components. The result is a competitively priced stump
grinder that requires significantly less maintenance than similar machines.
Less maintenance means less downtime and lower operating costs, allowing the
2250XP to work longer with less investment in parts and labor.

“This
is the same proven technology we use on our bigger stumpers and forestry mowers,”
said Jason Morey, small equipment sales manager for Bandit Industries.
“Hydrostatic drive is extremely reliable and far less complicated, and it delivers
plenty of power to the cutter wheel for great performance. Offering this kind
of drive on an inexpensive stump grinder is something we’re really excited
about, and early feedback from our customers tell us they’re just as excited to
get this machine.”

Its 50-inch swing arc with a
14-inch cutting depth gives this compact stumper the broad reach and bite
demanded by tree care professionals.

 

Powering
the Bandit Model 2250XP is a 27-horsepower gas engine driving two hydraulic
pumps: one for the self-propelled undercarriage and one for the cutter wheel.
The hydrostatic motor at the cutter wheel is a heavy-duty, 40-cubic centimetre unit that uses an
oversize bearing to manage the side-load and shock loads associated with stump
grinding. With no clutch to operate, engaging the cutter wheel is literally as
simple as pushing a lever. Easy-to-use machine-mounted controls are intuitive
and positioned to provide good visibility while grinding, allowing the operator
to take full advantage of the 2250’s capabilities. At just 1,500 pounds this is one
of the lightest four-wheeled stump grinders available, and with large flotation
tires the 2250XP can easily traverse delicate lawns without damage. A maximum
width of 35 inches means the 2250XP is also extremely maneuverable in close
quarters, and its combination of compact size and light weight make for easy
transportation by virtually any vehicle.
 

“This
is the perfect stumper for rental companies,” said Morey. “With no belts or
bearings to replace it’s a very low maintenance machine. That’s really going to
make a difference on the monthly balance sheet because it’ll spend more time
making money while costing a lot less to maintain.”

As with
other Bandit stump grinders, the Model 2250XP is manufactured primarily by
hand, using durable all-steel construction with the best materials and
components available. At the job site, its massive 50-inch swing arc with a
14-inch cutting depth gives this compact stumper the broad reach and bite
demanded by tree care professionals.

“It’s
small enough to not be intimidating for weekend renters, but it’s still powerful
enough for the pros to handle big stumps,” said Morey.
