PETER­SON PA­CIFIC Corp de­buted the all-new Peter­son 3310 drum chip­per at the 2017 ConExpo-Con/Agg show in Las Ve­gas, Ne­vada. With a 540 hp (402 kW) Cater­pil­lar en­gine, the 3310 has the power to han­dle up to 24-inch (61 cm) di­am­e­ter logs. The fully en­closed en­gine com­part­ment keeps things clean, but is eas­ily ser­viced by large ac­cess doors on both sides of the ma­chine.

“The all-new 3310 is the third and small­est model in Peter­son’s lineup of drum chip­pers. Like the other larger Peter­son drum chip­pers, the 3310 is equipped with siz­ing screens and an in­tel­li­gent con­trol sys­tem that pro­vide su­pe­rior fuel econ­omy and the most con­sis­tent chip qual­ity. The 3310 is a high ca­pac­ity small chip­per with a 23-inch (600 mm) di­am­e­ter log ca­pac­ity. It was de­signed for biomass en­ergy pro­duc­ers around the world that will ben­e­fit from the ef­fi­cient feed­ing and flex­i­ble van load­ing op­tions that are pro­vided by this unique de­sign,” said Larry Cum­ming, Peter­son’s pres­i­dent.

At just un­der 24-feet long, the 3310 uti­lizes a trans­verse-feed de­sign al­low­ing for a much smaller op­er­a­tions deck than typ­i­cal drum chip­pers. The ro­tat­able end load or op­tional top load spout de­sign al­lows for trail­ers to be loaded in a va­ri­ety of po­si­tions, de­pend­ing on the de­mands of the job site. Not only does the com­pact size al­low for easy ma­neu­ver­abil­ity, but can even be trans­ported in a 40-foot high cube con­tainer for over­seas ship­ment.

Us­ing the proven drum and knife de­sign used on the larger 4300-se­ries drum chip­pers, the 3310’s main com­po­nents are ro­bust and of­fer long life.

The Peter­son 3310 drum chip­per is also Peter­son+ en­abled--a new re­mote mon­i­tor­ing so­lu­tion pro­vid­ing ma­chine own­ers ac­cess to real-time and his­tor­i­cal data of their ma­chine’s per­for­mance and lo­ca­tion.

Peter­son spe­cial­izes in de­vel­op­ing de­liv­ery and pro­cess­ing equip­ment that turns low-grade or­ganic ma­te­ri­als into high value prod­ucts.
