Two New Towable Stump Grinders from Bandit

Bandit Industries' Model 2600 and Model 2700 towable stump grinders feature aggressive horsepower in compact lightweight designs. With beltless hyrdrostatic drive and numberous options, the new models will be good performers for rental centers, the company says. 

Bandit Model 2700 towable stump grinderThe Model 2600 features a 61-horsepower diesel engine, and the Model 2700 features a 97-or 115-horsepower diesel engine. Both machines ride on a rugged Torflex axle and go after stumps with swing arcs greater than five feet. Both come standard with the Revolution cutter wheel, and both feature telescoping tongues to help fine-tune their position at the stump.

They are easy to tow and simple to use, says Christopher Smith, marketing and communications director for Bandit Industries. “The wide swing arc and adjustable tongues really help these machines to grind even large stumps without needing to reposition the whole unit. The hydrostatic drive is definitely a big plus when it comes to lowering maintenance costs."

With hydrostatic direct-drive there are no belts, jackshafts, bearings or associated parts to maintain, making the operation and maintenance of these machines extremely simple. Power application with hydrostatic direct-drive is typically much smoother than traditional belt driven stump grinders, making the Model 2600 and Model 2700 a breeze to operate from swing-out control panels or optional radio remotes.
