            Peterson has introduced a new drum chipper model for high volume biomass producers. Peterson’s 4300 model is powered by a C18 Caterpillar engine available in three power ratings, 630 hp, 700 hp, and 765 hp. The chipper utilizes a 36” diameter by 40” wide drum. It will be available with optional material sizing bars and a chip accelerator to minimize oversize twigs and branches in the chips.

            Other key features include a sloped feed deck for ease of feeding the chipper, and  an adaptive feed control to maintain chip quality and engine rpm. Production 4300 drum chippers will be available in 2010. For details visit
