The new 2090 Track Bandit self-propelled whole tree chipper gobbles up trees as big as 20 inches in diameter with a hydraulic feed system that pulls the trunks into the chipper while crushing limbs and tops. Engine choices range from 250 to 330 horsepower. The top feed wheel is 27 inches in diameter and 32 inches long with a bottom wheel 10 5/8 inches in diameter and 32 inches long. The unit crawls on a Caterpillar 325 undercarriage and loads logs with a knuckle-boom loader and grapple.
