Bandit Offers New Universal Mount for Megabyte Shear
Bandit Industries has developed a new universal mounting system for the Megabyte Log and Stump Shear Attachment. The new mounting system makes it fairly easy to attach the Megabyte to most excavators while eliminating any need to modify the boom. Adapting the Megabyte to another excavator now only requires that a bushing be inserted into the linkage arm.

The Megabyte Log and Stump Shear Attachment is specially designed to break down stumps and over-sized logs into manageable pieces that can be more efficiently processed through waste reduction equipment. It also acts as a stump puller that will split stumps while still in the ground.

The unique design of the pivoting shear allows equal and full pressure to be put directly opposite the shear and claw. Full splitting and cutting power is present through all phases of the cut, compared to a scissors-type shear, which has most of its power two-thirds through the cut.

The Megabyte is equipped with a replaceable shear knife tip, replaceable front knife surfaces and replaceable teeth.

For more information, contact Bandit Industries at (800) 952-0178, fax (517) 561-2273, e-mail, or Web at
