Peterson Pacific Corp.‘s new 3310 drum chipper, which the company launched at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2017, has the power to handle up to 23-in.-diameter logs.

At just under 24 ft. long, the 3310 utilizes a transverse-feed design allowing for a much smaller operations deck than typical drum chippers, the company says. 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 jobsite. The compact size allows for easy maneuverability, and it can even be transported in a 40-ft.-high cube container for overseas shipment.

According to Peterson, the 3310 features a 540-hp Caterpillar engine. The fully enclosed engine compartment keeps things clean, the company says, but it is easily serviced through 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,” says Larry Cumming, Peterson’s president. “Like the other larger Peterson drum chippers, the 3310 is equipped with sizing screens and an intelligent control system that provide superior fuel economy.

The machine was designed for biomass energy producers, Peterson adds. Those producers can benefit from the efficient feeding and flexible van loading options that the design provides, the company says.

Also, the 3310 utilizes the drum and knife design used on the larger 4300 series drum chippers, according to Peterson. In addition, the machine is Peterson+ enabled, giving users a remote monitoring solution that provides access to real-time and historical data of a machine’s performance and location.
