Bandit Industries has introduced the new Model 2550XP
self-propelled stump grinder, available with up to 44 horsepower. Featuring
beltless hydrostatic direct-drive and available with up to 44 horsepower, the
Model 2550XP sets all-new standards for stump grinder production, reliability,
chip containment and low maintenance. Compared to similar stump grinders with
traditional belt drive, the Model 2550XP typically has a significantly lower
cost-of-ownership through reduced maintenance needs and less
downtime.

 Bandit Industries presents its new 2250XP stump grinder. 

“The Model 2550XP is a high production stump grinder that has
the power to go after large-scale projects or big stumps,” said Jason Morey,
Bandit small equipment sales manager. “Companies that spend a lot of time
grinding stumps will really enjoy this machine, as it can get just about
anywhere, tackle just about any sized stump, and it powers through them in no
time. It also operates just as smooth as our smaller 2250XP, and of course with
no belts there is far less downtime for maintenance.”

The reduced
maintenance comes from the high-power hydrostatic motor used to directly power
the cutter wheel with virtually no parasitic power loss. This eliminates the
need for a clutch, jackshaft, drive belt, belt tensioning system and the many
sheaves and bearings associated with those components. This also allows the
engine to be mounted lower and at the rear of the machine for better balance. An
optional four-wheel drive system is available for exceptional all-terrain
traction, and with standard flotation tires the Model 2550XP can harmlessly
traverse delicate landscaping. Engine options range from 35 or 38-horsepower
gasoline engines, or a pair of Kubota diesels with either 35 or 44
horsepower.

Once at the job site, the 2550XP brings a massive 50-inch
swing arc to cover a broad area, reducing the need to reposition the machine at
the stump. It cuts to a maximum depth of 13.5 inches, and it features rubber
chip curtains on both the operator's console and the machine itself to aid in
chip containment. A standard swing-out operator's station provides the controls
for the drive system, cutter wheel swing and up/down movements of the cutter
head, while also positioning the operator at a clear viewing angle to the
grinding action. An optional wireless remote control with a tether backup is
available for operators who prefer to be away from the machine. A hydraulic
grading blade is also available and recommended for assisting with cleanup after
the stump is removed.

“We’ve spent a lot of time talking with people in
the industry, grinding stumps every day,” said Morey. “Having a machine with the
power to get through stumps quickly is important, but so is reliability. Regular
stump grinders have come a long way in the last 10 years, and if you keep an eye
on the belts they perform well. With the 2250 and now the 2550, we’ve taken a
new step towards creating the ideal stump grinder—one that has the power people
need but doesn’t need quite so much attention to maintenance. Changing or
adjusting belts isn’t really hard, but after using a beltless 2250 or 2550,
you’ll wonder how you ever put up with belts in the first place.”

The
Model 2550XP is now in production and available for order. Contact your local
Bandit dealer for more information or to request a demonstration, or call Bandit
directly at 800-952-0178.
