What Makes Bandit Warranties so Great?
Bandit products are known for their longevity and durability, so it’s no surprise that we offer an industry-leading warranty for our chippers. But before we go into the details of the warranty, let’s first explain what enables Bandit to offer such a generous warranty in the first place.
We’re certainly well aware that assembly lines are much more efficient at producing high amounts of products within any given time frame. The truth is, nothing is better than prioritizing craftsmanship and attention to detail when manufacturing our equipment. Rather than assembly lines, we utilize two-person teams who work together to hand-assemble and weld each chipper and grinder kit. This may take slightly longer in terms of time, but we think the extra effort is well worth it.
Solid, Continuous Welding
The quality of the weld is of the utmost importance with heavy machinery like chippers and grinders. Some manufacturers prefer to use what’s known as stitch welding, which involves making spaced-out, stitch-like welds. This is not an option with our products.
At Bandit, our two-person assembly teams only use solid, continuous welds during production. This means the weld is continuous across the entire surface area, which joins the pieces together as one cohesive part. This welding method ensures added strength and reinforcement throughout the entire body of the product, which in turn bolsters its durability and delivers high performance for years to come.
Heavy-Duty, All-Steel Components
Of course, it’s not just about the craftsmanship — the materials matter as well. Bandit only uses top-quality, heavy-duty, all-steel components with our machines. These parts are the perfect match for the level of expertise used during the assembly of each machine, combining experienced craftsmanship with the highest quality of parts available. You’ll never catch us using cheaper, lower-quality parts just to reduce overhead.
Strict Quality Control
Once a machine has been fully assembled and inspected, there are still some final steps. After the machine has been moved to a separate area and acid-washed, painted, and fully dried, we add the hydraulic hoses, wires, and decal it. Once all of this is completed, it goes through a hydraulics check and one last quality inspection.
These final steps may seem painstaking to some, but by taking the time to give each product the attention it deserves, our team can ensure a consistently high level of craftsmanship that translates to high performance and longevity. That’s certainly worth it to us — and our customers.
The Result? A Generous Warranty We Are Proud to Stand Behind
This combination of craftsmanship and high-quality materials is precisely what enables Bandit to offer a 5-year GUTS warranty that covers the Bandit Slide Box Feed System, all Bandit fabricated components related to this system, the Bandit Disc/Drum Assembly, and all Bandit fabricated components related to the disc/drum. These parts are the heart of every chipper, so you get the extra peace of mind that comes with knowing your machine is covered for at least half a decade. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.
