Peterson 6300B Drum Chipper

Overview

The 6300B Drum Chipper is suited for high volume biomass producers who have a wide variety of feed material, from logs up to 36″ (91 cm) in diameter, to brush and small feed stock.

The 6300B Drum Chipper is powered by a 1050 HP (772 kW) C27 Caterpillar engine, and has an optional Tier IV engine available. A PT Tech wet clutch has also been added to the machine. At 85,000 pounds (38,555  kg), the 6300B was designed for operations requiring high production and frequent moves between jobs.

The 6300B Drum Chipper has two drum configurations, a 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” 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.
