Flail Chain

Flail chain is heavy, hardened, specialty chain that attaches to a flail drum. The flail chain whips the log as the flail drum spins, debarking the log.


Peterson standard flail chain is 5/8″ (16mm) diameter wire, although different sizing and configurations are available depending on the desired output. Peterson flail chains can be customized depending on climate, species of wood, and desired bark content on output.
