Bandit Model 2550XP

Backyard Stump Grinder

The Model 2550XP is a rugged, compact stump grinder that is ideal for tree services, municipalities, and rental companies looking for a dependable self- propelled grinder with the convenience of a hydrostatic drive. Recent changes to this unit have made it the most versatile stump grinder available in its class. The Model 2550XP features enhanced engine options up to 44.2 horsepower (33 kW). Routine maintenance is simplified with the hydrostatic drive system – a benefit to any tree service or rental yard!


The cutterwheel is driven by a heavy-duty hydrostatic motor meaning there are no belts or bearings to maintain. This results in a substantial reduction in maintenance costs and downtime. This machine also eliminates need for a clutch or belt tensioning system to engage the cutter wheel, also eliminating many of the sheaves and bearings that require maintenance. There are also two separate pumps: one to power the head, and another to drive the carriage drive system.


The 2550 features a large 50” (127 cm) swing arc, reducing the number of times the unit will need repositioned during grinding and further increasing productivity. The unit is also compact and highly maneuverable: at 35” (88.9 cm) wide, it will easily fit into tight and restricted areas. The low center of gravity also adds stability, and the simple design is easy to maintain and easy to access all maintenance areas.


The cutterwheel is engaged by pushing a manual valve that in turn activates a hydraulic pump to the cutterwheel. No clutch or jackshaft to maintain! In addition, the Hydraulic motor driving the cutterwheel has an oversized bearing to withstand the side-load and shock-loads that are associated with stump grinding.
