CLEARING WASTE

Bandits Beast Recyclers process


an amazing array of materials such
as stumps; logs; brush; wet leaves;
whole trees; landscape waste; pallets;
railroad ties; telephone poles; housing
demolition; sawmill, logging, chip mill
and paper mill waste; plastic materials,
including plastic car parts and European
type refrigerators; lime cake; shingles
and more.
The most important benefit of the
Beast is the quality and uniformity
of the end product. Breaking down
materials by cutting, splitting or grinding
provides a multitude of options for
producing a desired end product.
Various tooth options, screens of almost
any size or shape and the ability to
change the infeed conveyors feed
speed allows you to produce material
uniform in size and consistency to bring
top dollar. Tool options controlling the
cut, split or grind enable the Beasts
to deliver the best mulch products,
the most uniform raw material for
pressed board, the most acceptable
boiler fuel and the best hot mix asphalt
supplement from shingles.
In fact, no other grinder will produce
a hot mix asphalt supplement from
shingles in a single pass without
screening as well as the Beast. These
cuttermills break down shingles,
creating less heat than a conventional
grinder, allowing you to grind shingles
year round.

THE BEAST WILL MAKE YOU MONEY!

The quality of the product produced by the Beast gives you so many new market options.
MULCH: In many parts of the United States, tree services are taking green waste with
negative value and are making high quality mulch for about $3.50/cubic yard. The mulch
then sells for $11-25/cubic yard. Now thats a favorable return on investment!
BOILER FUEL: High oil costs are driving an increase in demand for wood energy. Our
Beasts will help meet that demand by producing an ideal wood fuel product in a single
pass with few fines.
PRESSED BOARD: The Beast will produce a consistent pin-type product for making
pressed board. It can also be mixed with sludge to burn unwanted materials in a boiler.

ORIGINAL with the Beasts patented cuttermill


CUTTERMILL

NO MATTER THE TASK AT HAND:

THE BEAST has you covered!


THE DRAGONHEAD IS THE MILL FOR

LIGHTER, MORE ABRASIVE MATERIALS

Patented Beast Cuttermill

The All-New Dragonhead

Our famous, patented Beast cuttermill


is the best choice for larger materials
and materials that are relatively
clean and the best mill for making
dimensional products: the original head
that can cut, split and grind.

A more traditional grinding head with


cutting tool options for processing
bigger materials. The Dragonhead
is ideal for dirtier applications, such
as construction debris, and is also a
good choice for regrind.

FEATURING: 60 TEETH

UNIQUE CUTTERBODIES PROVIDE A SMOOTH, CONTROLLED CUT


AND PROTECT THE MILL WHEN ENCOUNTERING CONTAMINANTS.
THE BEASTS UNIQUE, PATENTED CUTTERMILL
DESIGN ALLOWS YOU TO CUT, SPLIT OR GRIND.

Beast Cuttermill Attachments


SAWTOOTH CUTTER HOLDER
This break-away tool holder, designed like a sawtooth,
regulates the depth of cut and provides some protection
from foreign materials. Production is maximized while
making a consistent product and protecting the mill.

SAWTOOTH CUTTER WITH RAKER INSERT


A raker ahead of the cutting tool regulates the length of cut
while providing the breakaway tool holder some protection
from rocks, steel and other foreign materials. The raker is
available as a replaceable insert.

BREAK-AWAY CUTTER HOLDER

Discharge Conveyor

THE BEASTS CUTTING ACTION IS BEST DESCRIBED


BY COMPARING AN AX TO A SLEDGEHAMMER. WHICH
WOULD YOU RATHER USE TO CUT DOWN A TREE?

The cutter holder limits the bite of the cutting, splitting or


grinding tool which is important in controlling the size of
the product and helps maximize engine horsepower by
not taking too large of a bite. The fixed break-away tool
holders are heavy enough to cut through most materials,
including nails, spikes and metal. When striking materials
such as rock and heavy metal, the tool holders bend
back out of the way, protecting the cuttermill and limiting
damage to only a few holders and a few bits. Damaged
bits can be replaced in minutes. The tool holders attach to
the arms with two Grade 8 bolts. Should foreign material
heavily impact the tool holder and break, the bolts will keep
the tool holder in place. This will prevent the broken piece
from ruining any more holders or cutting tools.

FEATURING: 30 TEETH

THE DRAGONHEAD MILL HAS BEEN SHOWN TO INCREASE


PRODUCTIVITY BY NEARLY 30% IN CERTAIN APPLICATIONS.

You know that a Beast is the best


for your operation, but which
method is right for you?
Although our original cuttermill is
the best for most applications, the
Dragonhead is recommended for
processing pallet and construction
waste, compost, and for certain
regrind applications. With the
Dragonhead, the Beast can be as
much as 30% more productive in
certain applications than a Beast
with a cuttermill and/or a
conventional grinder.

Contact Bandit today to learn more


about our cutting and grinding options.

Dragonhead Tooth Options


The Dragonhead comes equipped with thirty teeth.
Depending on the material being ground, the
Dragonhead has two styles of teeth available:
Double-Splitter Tooth
For applications dealing with
larger diameter material.

Dual-Sided Grinding Tooth


Each side is impregnated with
Tungsten carbide for durability, ideal
for most grinding applications.

WHEN THE SUCCESS OF YOUR OPERATION DEPENDS ON THE QUALITY OF YOUR PRODUCT,

THE RIGHT TEETH MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE


Beast TOOTH OPTIONS

New and improved

Our improved Beast Recyclers produce more at a lower


cost while improving the value of the processed material.
The process starts with the teeth.

All of our cutterbodies are now


constructed with hard surface
Tungsten carbide weld covering
the wear areas of the cutterbody.

improved teeth, increased productivity

Teeth are selected based on the material being processed,


the amount of contaminants in the material and the size of
the desired end product. Cutting teeth produce a blocky
type product while splitters produce a more shredded
type product.
Cutting and splitting teeth are ideal for big materials while
splitting and grinding teeth are known for their dependability.
Cutting and splitting teeth will improve performance and
lower operating costs when processing large materials.
Two different types of teeth are often used in
combination to maximize performance and to deliver a
specific end product. Sixty teeth are standard in the 2680,
3680 and 4680 with a 30 tooth setup offered as an option.
Eighty teeth are standard in the 5680.
Improved teeth and new tooth options significantly lower
tooth wear costs, increase production and provide new
options for sizing the end product. New product sizes
improve the quality and value of the Beasts end product.
What has always been the best feature of the Beast
cuttermill is that you can change teeth to yield the desired
end product. This feature increases the value of the product.

The Beast allows you to cut, split or grind


the material to best suit your particular
situation.

Quality Bandit Wear Parts


Parts that maximize production while
minimizing cost.

Our Bandit Beast Recyclers allow you to run one or more


different styles of teeth in the machine at one time to provide
maximum efficiency and to make the best possible product.
The cuttermill in our Beast has two spirals, making it easy
and efficient to run one or more types of teeth. For most
applications, running a combination of two styles works best.

CUTTERBODIES

compare our new, wider fan teeth to the competition

our teeth really measure up!


XT Splitter Tooth

1 Carbide XT Cutter Tooth

Our best all-around tooth, used in most


applications.
Especially popular in land clearing
applications.
Often used by themselves or with
Carbide Cutters, Butcher Teeth, or G55
grinding teeth.
Tooth life in excess of 200 hours.

The 1 carbide cutter tooth is by far our best


cutting tooth.
The tooth of choice when processing
logs and big wood.
Require much less power to drive the
tooth through the material, especially
solid wood.
Tooth life can exceed 200 hours,
depending on operation.

Three styles of cutterbodies are offered:


ATTACHMENT OPTION:
CARBIDE RAKER
(AVAILABLE ON ALL MODELS)

a cutterbody with
a replaceable raker
insert, a cutterbody
with a blunt raker
(available on the 2680

ATTACHMENT OPTION:
BEAR CLAW RAKER

& 3680), and a saber


tooth cutterbody with
the more rounded raker

1 Wide Splitter Forged Fan XT Tooth

Butcher XT Super Fan Tooth

Features the advantages of the Splitter Tooth plus


the benefits of the Fan Tooth.
Often used in conjunction with a 1
wide straight Splitter XT tooth and the
1 Carbide XT Cutter tooth.
Very popular in land clearing and green
waste applications, and for processing
pallets and construction debris.

A 2 wide cutter tooth with a 3 forged fan


provides tremendous cutting capabilities.
Increases production in most
applications.
Provides the benefit of a Fan Tooth,
including increased throughput
through the screen.

XT Shingle Super Fan Tooth


The benefits of the shingle tooth merge with the
benefits of the fan tooth.
Thick cutter-style carbide.
Regulates the amount of bite and pushes
material through the screen.
Primary use is processing shingles.
Some uses in processing typical green
waste.
Tooth life approx. 300 hours.

Over-Sized Splitter Carbide XT Tooth


The thicker carbide splitter tooth will last longer
than the 1 splitter tooth.

the 1 splitter tooth.
Tooth life can exceed 400 hours in
some applications.

XT Extender Line of Teeth


For the Beast Cuttermill. Now featuring:

Better carbide for the cutters and splitters.


Better bonding process that makes it virtually impossible to separate
the cutting or splitting bit from the tooth.
The super fan are teeth made from a forging design and the fan is
larger. The fan protects the tooth bolt and the cutterbody where
the tooth mounts. The fan teeth limit the amount of material that
falls below the teeth to the cutterbodies, cutterbody bolts and mill,
decreasing wear to those items and areas.
The fan teeth increase the control of the bite making the Beast run
smoother and help push material through the screen.

XT Double Splitter Tooth


Double your pleasure double your fun!
This dual splitter tooth provides twice
the cutting surface as our popular
splitter tooth providing increased
production along with better wear.
As with the splitter tooth, the Double
Splitter is popular in land clearing
operations and often used by
themselves or with carbide cutters.

Helmet Head XT Tooth


An excellent tooth for pallet and construction
waste.
Rounded-head splitter-style tooth.
Often used when processing light
green waste, logging slash, and
sawmill waste.
Most often used in conjunction with a
straight splitter tooth or splitter fan.

1 G55 Sprinkle Carbide XT Tooth

Pointed Shingle Carbide XT Teeth

A tough, pure grinding tooth.


Most often used when grinding pallets
and construction debris.
The G55s produce a tooth-pick type
material from pallets ideal for making
fuel wood or pressed board.
Tooth life in excess of 300 hours.

A cutter style tooth with thicker carbide.


Highly effective in processing shingles.
Excellent for grinding typical green
waste.
Tooth life can exceed 300 hours,
depending on the level of contaminants.

know...

(AVAILABLE ON 2680 AND 3680)

This hydraulic thrower is great for fully loading open end trailers,
broadcasting material over a site or building tremendous piles.
The thrower swivels, tilts, and folds under the conveyor.

30 FOLDING DISCHARGE CONVEYOR


The 30 conveyor discharges to a height of 17, 6 and is standard
for all models except the 2680, where it is available as an option.

SCREENS
Screens as small as 3/4 work well in the Beast,
enabling you to produce as course or as fine a
product as youd like. The concave gate also
serves as a screen to provide plenty of screening
surface. Changing screens is a snap. They slide
through a side panel and into position with the
assistance of an electric powered winch, or with
the new Screen Changing Arm.
3 SPEED INFEED CONVEYOR DRIVE
A three-speed infeed conveyor drive maximizes
engine horsepower and regulates particle size,
allowing you to increase the speed for less dense
materials or slow the speed for larger, denser
materials. Changing the feed speed will also affect
the size of the cut and end product.
INFEED CONVEYOR
The infeed conveyor hydraulically backs up to
allow easy access to the debris augers.
THE BEASTS ALMOST RUN THEMSELVES
The Auto Feed System governor automatically
stops the feed and backs it out of the cut when
the engine lugs to a set minimum RPM and then
automatically restarts the feed when the engine
reaches its maximum RPM. If the material will
fit into the conveyor, it should feed through the
machine without hang-up as long as the piece
is not larger than the mills infeed opening. Odd
shaped pieces, greater than the infeed opening,
can be processed by partially cutting the piece
and rolling it though the mill. The infeed conveyor
and the top wheel will move in opposite directions
to turn material. There is no limit to the length of
material that can be cut.

FIFTH WHEEL HITCH


A fifth wheel hitch is optional
on the 2680 and 3680 and is
standard on the 4680 and 5680.

REMOTE CONTROL
Tether and radio remotes control
all machine functions and are
available for all Beast Recyclers.

FEATURES THAT IMPROVE THE EFFICIENCY OF YOUR BEAST


ANVIL CONVEYOR CHAIN
ELIMINATES HANG-UPS

A rugged, heavy-duty track type conveyor


chain serves as a continuous anvil and
will take abuse from processing heavy
materials. No anvil is used in the initial
breakdown, eliminating material hang-ups.
The mill turns down, cutting against the
conveyor chain. This chain should provide
years of dependable service.

DEBRIS AUGERS CLEAN


UP AREA AROUND MACHINE

Slow moving debris augers, mounted


under the infeed conveyor, collect
materials as they fall from the end of the
feed conveyor and force them into the
mill for processing. This limits the mess
around the machine. More specifically, it
controls spillage and improves production.

MAGNETIC HEAD PULLEY

The magnetic head pulley is especially


efficient in removing metal contaminants.
It is standard on all units except the 2680
where it is offered as an option.

REPLACEABLE BOLT-IN
ROLL COVER

All 3680s and 4680s are equipped with a


replaceable bolt-in roll cover for the mill
housing, made of hardened steel.

HYDRAULICALLY ACTIVATED
GATE REJECTS CONTAMINANTS

This gate allows the operator to quickly


open and close a concave to the screening
chamber to reject foreign materials. The
Beast will often produce a uniform product
with the concave gate open. Materials
containing light metal, such as pallets,
can be processed with the gate open.
Simply separate the metal at the magnetic
head pulley and then regrind to achieve

MODEL 4680 | WINTER - SPRING 2007 BEAST WASTE RECYCLER CATALOG

ALL BEASTS ARE EQUIPPED WITH THE BIG BITE DRIVE SYSTEM
The Big Bite drive system, standard equipment since Spring 04, is a major
advancement for the 2680 and 3680 Beasts.

FUEL SAVINGS FACT


The fuel-efficient Beast cuttermill uses up to
14 gallons per hour less fuel than a conventional
grinding head, which can add up to over
$50,000 in fuel savings per year.

The drive slows the RPM of the head, vastly improving performance and the quality of the end product, while lowering operating
costs. Cutter teeth and cutter body wear is reduced because the wear parts move more slowly through the cut, resulting in lower
operating costs. Increased torque means more power, a quality needed especially when grinding larger diameter materials.
As a result, the engine lugs less and fuel consumption is dramatically reduced. Slowing the heads RPM, along with the variable
feed conveyor system, enables the Beast to push material further into the cut, producing a larger, shredded-type mulch for those
desiring such a product. The three-speed conveyor drive option lets the operator change the size of material being produced by
simply changing the speed of the infeed conveyor. The slower the conveyor speed, the finer the cut.

MULCH COLORING MADE easy with your Beast Recycler


The most economical way to make colored mulch.

Now you can produce high quality, rich-looking mulch that will bring
top dollar with the Color Critter II.

Low colorant costs Little water required


The Color Critter II uses a dry, granular coloring pigment with a precise, electronicallycontrolled metering system that operates off the Beasts electronic controls. This ensures
the right amount of water and pigment flow. The coloring system straddles the infeed
conveyor and bolts to the infeed conveyors support posts. The colorant hopper slides
down into guide posts located on the Beasts main frame. Five discharge ports evenly
spread colorant over the material.

The quantity of colorant being discharged is easily adjusted by simply turning a knob that
opens and closes the ports. The rate at which the colorant is discharged is controlled by
the speed of the infeed conveyor.If the feed system stops, so does the flow of colorant.
A metering gate ensures a controlled flow of material to the colorizer. The coloring system
and infeed automatically stop when the colorant hopper is empty. One set of spray nozzles
apply the 0 to 8 gallons of water per minute normally required to process green waste.

the 5680 beast recycler

the ultimate waste reduction machine


The 5680 features a 65.5 diameter by 83 wide cuttermill with a 50 x 80 opening.
This hungry Beast is our most productive grinder and is absolutely the best high production
machine for big logs and stumps. The 5680 will process more than 700 cubic yards or 250 tons per
hour, depending on the material being processed.

The second set of nozzles supply up to an additional 14 gallons of water per minute that
may be required when coloring ground pallets or construction waste. Wet, green waste
can often be colored without adding any water. Garden hoses supply water to the spray
nozzles.
The colorant hopper holds in excess of 2,000 lbs. of granules. Multiple hoppers are
recommended to quickly switch from one color to another, limiting downtime due to
refilling the hopper. Colored mulch exits the machine nearly dry and can be bagged shortly
thereafter. Oxidizing pigments penetrate the material to provide a rich, long lasting color
that resists fading, allowing you to color earlier in the season.

Installation is simple.
It takes about four hours to initially wire the
colorizers control panel to the Beast. Once this
initial wiring is complete, final installation takes
about 15 minutes.

Power requirements 110 volt current.


A generator is often used to supply power to the
colorizer and to the water pump when operating in
a remote location.

High production
A 500-HP Beast can color as much as 200 cubic
yards/hour in the final grind, depending on the
desired product size. Colorant costs are usually
under $3.00/cubic yard of finished product for
most applications. Colorant is contained in the
