Bandit Industries’ new Model 1425 track is a highly productive and compact horizontal grinder, equipped with many of the same features as the tow-behind version and adding tracks substantially increases the capabilities of this unit. Thanks to a Caterpillar steel track undercarriage, this machine can travel over a variety of landscapes.
The Model 1425 track is equipped with a 7 ft. x 24 in. steel or rubber belt infeed conveyor and a stationary discharge with a stacking height of 7 ft. To further enhance capabilities, a grinder head or chipper drum can be ordered, giving it the ability to produce mulch or a dimensional chip.
When ordered with a grinder head, there are 14 cutterbodies with teeth, creating an aggressive, yet smooth grinding action. While the chipper drum features four chipper knives that will produce a chip ranging from ¼ in. all the way up to 1 in. Like other Bandit larger horizontal grinders, the 1425 track is offered with a variety of tooth and screen options.
