Celebrating its 30thanniversary in 2013, Bandit Industries is also approaching the milestone of producing its 50,000th Brush Bandit machine. To celebrate, the company is holding a special contest from Feb. 1 to March 31 that includes cash, prizes, and the chance to own machine number 50,000.

“We very much wanted to do something special to celebrate this milestone,” said Jason Morey, Bandit small equipment sales manager. “We certainly wouldn’t be here without the support of our customers through the years and this is a chance for us to give something back. We are very excited to reach 50,000 and we’re just as excited to start drawing names for the winners.”

The grand prize winner will receive several items including $5000, a supply of wear parts, a $500 dollar Bandit apparel package, and Brush Bandit number 50,000. Several runner-up prizes will also be awarded, and everyone who enters will receive a Bandit 30th Anniversary jacket.

Customers who order a Bandit hand-fed chipper or stump grinder for purchase between Feb. 1 and March 31 is eligible for the contest. When ordering, participants must ask to be included in the contest. Contest winners will be drawn on April 1, after which the grand prize winner will have their order slotted into production as machine number 50,000.
