Peterson Pacific Corp., Eugene, Oregon, announced the all-new Peterson 6310B drum chipper suited for high volume biomass producers who have a wide variety of feed material, from logs up to 36 inches in diameter, to brush and small feedstock.

The 6310B drum chipper is powered by a 1050 horsepower C27 Caterpillar engine and has an optional Tier IV engine available.

At 86,000 pounds, the track mounted 6310B was designed for operations requiring high production and frequent moves between jobs.

The 6310B drum chipper has two drum configurations: an 8-pocket drum to make standard biomass chips or a 16-pocket drum to make microchips. An optional grate system has been redesigned to allow for adjustment from a microchip to a 1¼-inch chip with the same grates. Traditional babbitt type knife systems are standard equipment or an optional key knife system is available.

Peterson’s chip accelerator system is designed to add load density or throws chips away from the machine for land clearing operations.

The chipper utilizes a 50-inch diameter by 60-inch wide drum. Other key features include a sloped feed deck designed for the ease of feeding and wear resistant AR400 wear surfaces on the drum pockets and shell. The feed chain has been upgraded to WDH120.
