Model 5000T - Track Carrier
There isn’t another clearing machine on the market with the power and performance to match the Bandit Model 5000T. This incredible track carrier wields a 108-inch wide bandit-designed forestry mulcher attachment, backed with a 540-horsepower diesel engine to quickly mow and mulch large trees. It rides on a proven CAT® 325EL dual-speed steel-track undercarriage with 800mm wide pads for exceptional grip and flotation over any terrain. The Model 5000T specializes in large-scale land clearing projects where large trees, stubborn terrain, and a tight timeframes are present. In other words—it handles the biggest projects that other machines simply can’t touch.
Like other Bandit Track Carriers, the Model 5000T can be outfitted with either a forestry mulcher attachment or a stump grinding head. Switching between the attachments is a simple process, literally taking just minutes in the field. The stump grinding attachment on the Model 5000T features a 40-inch diameter cutter wheel utilizing buck-style teeth for aggressive grinding action. The mulcher attachment incorporates a unique design with carbide cutting teeth, and it’s built with the same rigorous construction that goes into Bandit chipper drums and Beast cuttermills. The Model 5000T mulcher attachment easily cut through large trees and brush while also being extremely tolerant to dirt and rocks, allowing it to both mow material then mulch it directly into the soil. The forestry mulcher and stump grinder attachments are powered by a separate hydraulic system from the track drive—problems with one system will not affect the other.
Operators enjoy the best seat in the house thanks to deluxe operator cabs that are luxurious, high-tech and functional. Comfort and control is provided by a six-way captain’s chair with fingertip “drive-by-wire” joystick controls. Touch screen monitors display vital machine functions and operations, while rear-view cameras and reinforced windscreens provide excellent visibility. The Model 5000T is fully climate controlled with heat and air conditioning systems, and built-in AM/FM radios help the workday go by quicker.
The Model 5000T, like all Bandit equipment, is built with safety, convenience and performance in mind. Standard features such as rollover bar protection systems, roof escape hatches, fire suppression systems, reverse alarms and automatic engine shutdown systems are included on every track carrier. When it comes to maintenance, operator cabs tilt forward to provide easy access to the machine’s major components, minimizing downtime and operating costs. That’s why more land clearing and forestry operations are turning to Bandit for innovative, reliable track carriers dedicated to high-production mowing, mulching and stump grinding in all environments, all around the world.
