Model 2460XP added to Beast horizontal grinder lineup
Bandit Industries has added an additional option to The Beast horizontal grinder lineup by introducing the Model 2460XP. Available as a towable or track machine, the Model 2460XP is a machine built from the ground up, and is designed to outperform every other horizontal grinder in its class.
"We looked at everything when designing the Model 2460XP. Every design decision, every standard feature, and every option was chosen to make this the most productive horizontal grinder with 520 horsepower," said Bandit Sales Manager Jason Morey. "Anyone who sees the 2460XP in action will be able to immediately see what makes this unit so special."
Special attention was paid to making the 2460XP among the easiest horizontal grinders to service and maintain. Common maintenance items were designed to be accessible from either the ground or on built-in platforms. This reduces maintenance downtime and increases the useful uptime.
"Key to any of The Beast horizontal grinders is the patented downturning cuttermill," Morey said. "The 2460XP is equipped with a 60" wide by 30" diameter, 30-tooth cuttermill running Bandit's patented saw-tooth style cutter bodies. This regulates the size of the tooth's bite, so most of the material is sized on the initial cut, allowing material to be sized correctly on the first pass so it exits the larger screening area more quickly."
For the tracked 2460XP, Bandit offers Strickland and Caterpillar undercarriages, giving customers an additional option for their track machines.
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
