Peterson launches 6310 drum chipper

Eugene, OR-based Peterson Pacific Corp. says its all-new 6310B drum chipper is suited for high-volume biomass producers who have a wide variety of feed material, from logs up to 36 in. (91 cm) in diameter, to brush and small feedstock.

The 6310B is powered by a 1050-hp (772-kW) C27 Caterpillar engine; an optional Tier IV engine is available.

At 86,000 lb (39,010kg), the track-mounted 6310B was designed for operations requiring high production and frequent moves between jobs. There are two drum configurations — an eight-pocket drum to make standard biomass chips and a 16-pocket drum to make microchips.

A redesigned optional grate system allows for adjustment from a microchip to a 1¼-in. chip with the same grates. Traditional Babbitt-type knife systems are standard; an optional key knife system is available.

Peterson’s chip accelerator system adds load density or throws chips well away from the machine for land clearing operations.

The chipper utilizes a 50-in. (127-cm) diameter by 60-in. (152-cm) wide drum. Other features include a sloped feed deck for ease of feeding and wear-resistant AR400 wear surfaces on the drum pockets and shell. The feed chain has been upgraded to WDH120 for improved strength and long life.
