Since 1983, Bandit has been providing equipment for a multitude of wood waste processing markets. Our vision since the beginning, is to build quality, highly productive, easy to maintain equipment providing years of dependable service. The commitment for quality, innovation and dedication is instilled in every Bandit employee and is one of the main reasons why Bandit became an Employee-Owned Company (ESOP) in 2018. These core values ensure each Bandit machine will leave the factory ready to exceed your expectations.

Bandit’s complete line of horizontal grinders features a Patented cutter mill designed to cut material apart in lieu of the beating action found in most competitive style grinders. Our smallest grinder, the Model 1425, features a Caterpillar 120 horsepower engine and is an economical solution to grind material up to 14” in diameter. It can also be equipped with a coloring system. If you are needing a higher capacity machine, we offer a wide array of models up to 45” capacity with engine options up to 1,200 horsepower. Most of our grinders can be ordered as towable or track and are a great solution to turn your chunk wood, green waste, pallets and other wood waste into a saleable end product.




In 2018, further expanding our product offerings Bandit entered an exclusive partnership with Arjes slow speed shredder. This partnership has increased the markets we serve, allowing us to offer a product for those wanting to shred concrete, C & D waste, railroad ties, tires, light metal and much more. These units will also process chunk wood. Two main models are offered, the Impaktor 250 or the VZ950. Each unit is powered by a Volvo diesel engine. The Impaktor 250 has a 220-horsepower engine and the 950 is offered with a 700-horsepower engine. Either unit features shafts that bolt to a cassette allowing easy switching between shafts so customers can be shredding concrete in the morning, switch shafts and go to shredding C & D or tires in the afternoon.

Most of our product lines are covered by a highly trained dealer network consisting of over 200 dealer locations worldwide. All our dealers have qualified sales, parts and service personnel that receive ongoing training from Bandit.
