The Peterson 5000H Delimber Debarker Disc Chipper produces high quality low bark content chips for wood pulp and pellets, processing whole trees in one continuous operation. Equipped with a large feed throat, this whole tree chipper can accept up to a 23 inch (56 cm) diameter single tree or multiple smaller stems.
The 5000H can be configured with a three or four pocket disc, with several optional sheave sizes to make precisely the chip you need. The standard three-pocket disc produces chips from 5⁄8 to 1 1/4 inches (16–32 mm) long, while the optional four-pocket disc produces chips from ½ to 1 inches (13–25 mm) long. Chipping production rates up to 100 tons (90 tonnes) per hour can be achieved depending on chip size and wood characteristics.
Peterson’s heavy-duty 66 inch diameter, 4 3/4 inch thick (168 x12 cm) chipper disc has replaceable 1/2 inch (13 mm) wear plates. Traditional babbitt-type knives or Key Knife components are available.
The Tier II C27 and C32 Caterpillar engines are more fuel-efficient than previous engines of equivalent power. The adaptive cooling system adjusts the fan speed to match cooling requirements. Fuel cost savings can be significant over the life of the machine.
Since 1981, Peterson has specialized in the developing of delivery and processing equipment that turns low-grade organic materials into high value products.
The large display provides information to make chips more efficiently. On-screen maintenance instructions and self-diagnostics features increase your up-time.
Upper and lower chain flails strip bark and limbs from the stems, replaceable UHMW wear liners protect the flail housing sidewalls.
Peterson disc chippers come with three or four pocket, 66” (167 cm) diameter chipper discs with traditional babbitted knife systems, or Key Knife™ systems.
Ergonomic joystick controls provide precise control of the two-section knuckle-boom log loader. Top, end-loading, or high rotation long spouts are available.
