Flails

Continuing Peterson’s long history of innovation, this 6th generation design has the features that clean chip operations demand.The Peterson 4800F multiple log delimber/debarker is designed to be used in tandem with whole tree chippers to produce high quality pulp chips. Capable of processing multiple logs from 2 to 23 inches (5–58 cm) in diameter, the 4800F increases productivity while reducing bark content, product handling time, and fiber loss.Powered by a 350 HP (261 kW) CAT C9 Tier III or Tier IV engine, the 4800F meets all US, Canadian, and European Union emission regulations.  Equipped with a dedicated 135 gallon (511 l) hydraulic oil tank, and a 175 gallon (662 l) fuel tank to allow the 4800F to run an entire shift without fill-up.The 4800F features upper and lower flails, direct drive lower in-feed and out-feed rolls, and a floating direct drive upper feed roll. The high capacity bark pusher has been redesigned and is now 5 feet (1.5 m) wide.With a retractable gooseneck, the highway legal 4800F is easily moved between jobs. The four fixed landing gear (with floating pads) allow for adjustable operating height.
 
Peterson’s 4810F tracked chain flail is engineered for optimal efficiency and productivity. With a compact footprint, it is easily maneuverable for repositioning to new job sites. No wonder it’s the machine of choice for in-field chipping. Increase your productivity and decrease product handling times. The 4810F is designed to debark multiple logs and works in tandem with a whole tree chipper to produce high quality pulp chips. The 52 ½ inch (58 cm) wide feed throat is capable of processing multiple logs from 2 to 23 inches (5–58 cm) in diameter.
 
The Peterson 6800 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 30-inches (76 mm) in diameter, the 6800 quickly and effectively debarks even the hardest feedstock. The fully enclosed Caterpillar C18 engine rated at 765 hp (570 kW), has the power to drive the 3 fail 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 large 60-inch (152 cm) wide, by 30-inch (76 cm) tall feed opening makes loading the 6800 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 massive bark pusher removes the debarked debris to the side of the machine and can be configured to exit on either side depending on the needs of your operation.
 
The Peterson 6830 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 has the power to drive the 3 fail 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 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.
