 Used Brush Bandit 150 12" chipper

A dealer a few hours away has a used Brush Bandit 150X (or 150XP?) chipper with 1200 hours on it for sale. This is a 12" drum chipper with hydraulic feed, powered by a 4 cyl. Ford engine. They're asking $8900 for it. They claim it has just been serviced (whatever that means) and that it runs great but would be sold as-is. Does this seem like a reasonable price?

$8900? What does one sell new for? Must be one heck of a machine.

Not sure what they cost new but I've seen used ones for more than $15k (usually with 80-110 hp diesel engines).

I'm still not sure if $8900 was a great price for this chipper but I bought it anyway. It will be delivered in two weeks. They are changing all fluids and filters, checking and greasing all bearings and seals, putting fresh knives on it, checking and replacing hoses if needed, giving it a tuneup, and throwing in a spare set of knives for the price. THIS baby should do the job. 85hp of pure chipping power. ARGH ARGH ARGH!

Ken - Your gonna love it! How many hours are on it? I have rented various brush bandit model chippers & they all work well. What are ya going to do with yor jinma chipper now?


12" chippers are big money so if ya got it for under 10K your doing well assuming it's in good condition. I would say in MHO More bark, Brush bandit & salsco are all top quality chippers.

The Bandit doesn't have an hour meter so nobody is sure how many hours are on it. It was a one-owner machine and the owner was the only operator. He claims it had about 1000 hours on it and an independent mechanic estimated it at somewhere between 800-1200 hours so I am taking them at their word. When it's delivered they will give me a day to inspect and use it and I can back out of the deal if I decide to. I'm not sure what I'll do about the Jinma. Storage is scarce right now so I may sell it, but it would be nice to have around because it's a lot more mobile than the Brush Bandit. Here's a pic of the new one.

Is that the exact one or just a pic you found of the same model? If that is the same one it looks very clean. I'm envious! With the use of your grapple, You wont have any problem with it as far as modility. I have gotten tow behind chippers in some tight spots, It just takes a little more patience & time to get them there. Congradutations...I hope it works out for you.

That pic is the exact one I'm getting. It's expensive but various tax credits and writeoffs will pay for much of it. After 3-4 years it will probably sell for a large fraction of what I paid for it. Hard to pass up. BTW, I'm becoming convinced that $8900 was a good price for it. I have found two 150XP chippers of the same year with diesel engines of the same hp rating and they are both going for around $14.5k. I would have liked a diesel, but not at a $5.5k price premium.

That sounds right...I know with truck purchases, You pay about $5000 more to have the deisel engine for the exact same truck, same options. What does it weight? Did you get a manual with it?
