The mounted 4310B Highwalker Tracked Chipper is suited for high volume biomass producers who have a wide variety of feed material from brush and small feed stock to logs up to 24 inches (61 cm) in diameter. The 4310B is powered by a 765 horsepower (570 kW) C18 Caterpillar engine. At 58,500 pounds (26 535 kg), the track mounted 4310B Highwalker Tracked Chipper is designed for operations requiring high production and frequent moves between jobs.
The chipper utilizes a 36 inch diameter by 44¾ inch (91 by 114 cm) wide drum with either 6 or 12 knife pockets. Traditional babbitt type knife systems are standard equipment. Chip length can be set from 1⁄8 to 1¼ inch (3 to 32 mm) depending on rotor and knife configuration. Peterson’s chip accelerator system, adds load density, or throws chips well away from the machine for land clearing operations.
With a ground clearance of 2’-10 1/8” (86 cm), the Highwalker makes it easy to traverse even the most rugged terrain.
Other key features include a hydraulic clutch, sloped feed deck for ease of feeding the chipper, and wear resistant AR 450 wear surfaces on the drumpockets and shell. Optional material sizing grates further reduce oversize twigs and branches in the chips, and an optional chip accelerator helps with loading.
