The all-new 6310B Drum Chipper
by Peterson Pacific Corp. will make quick work of a wide variety of feed material, from logs up to 36″ (91 cm) in diameter, to brush and small feedstock. The 6310B Drum Chipper is powered by a 1050 hp (772 kW) C27 Caterpillar engine, and has an optional Tier IV engine available.
At 86,000 pounds (39,010kg), 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 1 ¼” 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, adds load density, or throws chips well away from the machine for land clearing operations.
The chipper utilizes a 50″ (127 cm) diameter by 60″ (152 cm) wide drum. Other key features include:
- Sloped feed deck for the ease of feeding
- Wear resistant AR400 wear surfaces on the drum pockets and shell
- Upgraded feed chain to WDH120 for improved strength and long life
