Bandit Offers New Auto Feed on Chippers
Bandit Industries has developed digital Auto Feed Plus, a new feed system for chipping and grinding machines that can start and stop a feed and also reverse it. Auto Feed Plus is available on all Brush Bandit® hand-fed brush chippers and whole tree chippers and comes standard on the company’s model 3680 Beast Recycler.®

The Auto Feed Plus reverse feature allows material to be pulled out from the cut, preventing wood from rubbing against the disc or knives. The reverse feature, which is infinitely adjustable from a millisecond to 65 seconds, eliminates the potential for burning and dulling knives.

Bandit customers who have tested the new Auto Feed Plus have received it enthusiastically. The system is more dependable and easier to adjust, they found, and the reverse feature operates smoothly and quickens recovery time.
