The Peterson 6830 Chain Flail Debarker is a dedicated chain flail debarking machine designed for long-stem chipping operations that require low bark or ash content. Designed for multiple stems or trees up to 28 inches (71 cm) in diameter, the 6830 quickly and effectively debarks even the hardest feedstock.
Powered by a fully enclosed Caterpillar C18 engine rated at 765 hp (570 kW), the 6830 Chain Flail Debarker has the power to drive the 3 flail drums (a 4th flail is also available as an option). The two lower flails are fixed in location, and the upper flails float to match log diameter. The 10-link flail chain is easily replaced through access doors.
The 6830 Chain Flail Debarker is available with either a Peterson 170 or 220 log loader. The large 60 inch (152 cm) wide, by 30 inch (76 cm) tall feed opening makes loading the 6830 easy.
Two floating feed heads, and five fixed lower feed rolls control the log through the debarking chamber, and two rolls assist the stems to exit the machine.
The 6830 Chain Flail Debarker is controlled by an IQAN operating system, which provides the operator with all critical engine and performance parameters. When paired with the Peterson 7900EL, the operator can control both machines.
Since 1981, Peterson has specialized in the developing of delivery and processing equipment that turns low-grade organic materials into high value products.
The Bark Pusher has a 12’x24” wide opening with a 10 second stroke moves the bark and limbs efficiently from the debarking chamber.
The 6830 utilizes high torque gearboxes to drive the upper and lower chain flails—providing 30% more torque than the previous model for efficient bark and branch removal.
Ergonomic joystick controls provide precise control of the two-section knuckle-boom log loader.
