All Bandit chippers are primarily hand-built by specialists, utilizing the highest quality components and assembled with solid, welded construction. That’s why Bandit hand-fed chippers have earned the reputation for simply being the best hand-fed chippers on the market, and that’s why Stowers Machinery chooses to offer these machines as an option for their customers.


With an extremely large 20.5-inch by 26-inch throat opening and diesel engine options topping 200 horsepower, the Model 1890XP is an overachieving 19-inch capacity chipper in every way.


Designed for companies working large removals and light land clearing, the Model 1890XP retains a single-axle design with an average weight just over 10,000 pounds. To stay under 10,000 pounds, the special “1890XP Brute” edition can be ordered, trading some options to keep average weight around 9,800 pounds.


Both editions feature Bandit’s oversized 37-inch diameter drum, delivering all the power and performance that people demand from a 19-inch capacity chipper. The larger diameter chips on the bottom portion of the drum, cutting with the grain of the wood instead of against it. The size and additional mass allow the drum to spin slower, delivering a smoother cut with less machine vibration.

The larger drum powers through material quicker, requiring less horsepower to achieve more production. This also translates to better fuel economy, and of course the bigger drum contributes to Bandit’s legendary chip throwing power. Combined with powerful dual horizontal feed wheels in Bandit’s proven Slide Box Feed System, there isn’t much the 1890XP can’t handle.


As with all Bandit chippers, the Model 1890XP is designed and equipped with operator safety in mind. Numerous items such as guards, disable plugs and the patented “Last Chance Cables” are standard, while optional components like the bottom bump bar and Feed Wheel Engage system go above and beyond state and federal requirements. And when it comes to maintenance, major components are designed to be easily accessible for regular servicing, saving both time and money.
