    Does anyone on here have a new Bandit 19xp? Or 19xpc? Not sure of the difference between the two. We are leaning towards the gas motor to avoid complications with DEF.

    Badits marketing info on their website only lists one gas engine option for the 19xp, 165 hp. That seems way under powered. Pretty sure that’s the 4.3 litre V6.

    Im assuming the 19xp vs. 19xpc is simalar to the 1890 vs. 1890 hd. The 1890 was a beast but the 1890 hd was built heavier with thicker metal thus requiring a cdl a

    Considering the 18xp is the exact same chipper as the 19xp from beyond infeed rollers to motor i think the gas motor will do well. The 165 gm motor recovers nearly twice as fast as the 174 CAT Tier 3 diesel in one of our other chippers. The lower the HP the more times auto feed kicks in but that's why they offer lower 144 HP Perkins upwards to 210 in the 18xp.

    The 4.3L V6 is the 130hp GM.
    The 130 is sufficient for the 15xp (1390xp) as long as you aren’t burying it in full capacity wood every day all day and you keep up on the maintenance. More hp would be nice for larger wood consistently. I would say if you bought a 19xp you would be feeding it copious amounts of wood, and 165 hp wouldn’t be ideal. It would work but I think it would quickly become your bottle neck. Just my gut feeling.

    My last 5.7 was 275 hp. That was in a 2000 GMC Sierra

    We decided against the 19xp and went with the 18xp with a gas motor. It was the only way we could spec the chipper with desired options to keep it under 10,000lbs. Should be here by end of Jan early Feb

    You’ve almost got me convinced now to go with a gas chipper! I’m looking at an 18” now! I’m trying to line up a demo for next week before we get hammered with more snow !

    The diesel after market offers much in means of raising hp/trq. Although I love gas engines and especially big blocks, ;) @TimberJack, diesels are more efficient at making big power. I'm a drag racer at heart, and I watch the diesels turn quick numbers as to years ago they only pulled the Pro Stock, funny cars, and rail cars to the track. I'll stick to the diesel tier3. Especially for large removals. There is a place for gas chippers .... just not for me.

    What option would put you over 10k on a 19xp? I need wide rollers, winch and that's about it. Did you do full hydraulic everything?

    Yes the wide rollers, auto feed, winch and hydraulic discharge shoot, and some pressure gauges were the options we picked but weren't all must haves if we went with the 19xp. I believe the winch by itself pushes the 19 over 10k They didnt tell me exactly what each item weighed but I spoke to Jason Morey, the owner of Bandit's son and he told me to go with the 18xp instead. We already have a 19" diesel chipper that follows our crane crew so I think we will be ok.

    Deevo, if you still can get brand new tier 3 Bandit chippers and figure out a way to get them across the border we can become business partners. And no I'm not kidding, your investor is right here!

    Then you 2 can call me. Fwiw our 1590 is at 9890 with a half tank of fuel...no winch.
