5900 EL Whole Tree Chipper

5900 EL Whole Tree Chipper

Peterson’s popular 5900 disc chipper has been further enhanced with key features designed to suit high-volume chipping operations. The new 5900EL (Extended Length) model features a 3.3-metre (11-foot) feed deck, PT Tech hydraulic clutch, direct drive for the internal feed rolls, and a totally enclosed CAT C18 engine. It is Tier 4 ready.  

The Peterson model 5900EL disc chipper is built to produce high quality paper chips when paired with a Peterson model 4800 debarker, or fuel chips as a stand alone fuel wood chipper, and uses the same high quality chipping components used for many years in Peterson’s model 5000H delimber/debarker/chipper.  

The 5900EL has a large feed throat capable of accepting up to a 563mm (23-inch)  diameter tree or multiple smaller diameter stems. Units are provided with a standard three knife disc, and are available with an optional four knife disc. A heavy-duty 1,676mm (66-inch) diameter 121mm (4.75-inch) thick chipper disc has a replaceable 13mm (0.5-inch) thick wear plate, and chipping production rates range from 55 to 90 tonnes (60 to 100 tons) depending on chip size.  

Also available from Peterson, the model 4310 drum chipper is suited for high volume biomass producers who have a wide variety of feed material, from logs up to 66 cm (26 inches) in diameter, to brush and small feed stock.
