June 10,
2010, Eugene, OR – Peterson’s popular 5900 disc chipper has been further
enhanced with key features that high-volume chipping operations demand. The new
5900EL (extended length) features an 11-foot (3.3-metre) feed deck, PT Tech
hydraulic clutch, direct drive for the internal feed rolls, and totally
enclosed CAT C18 engine, and is Tier 4 ready.

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

The
5900EL has a large feed throat capable of accepting up to a 23 inch (563 mm)
diameter tree or multiple smaller diameter stems. The 5900EL is provided with a
standard three-knife disc and is also available with an optional four-knife
disc. Peterson’s heavy-duty 66 inch (1676 mm) diameter 4.75 inch (121 mm) thick
chipper disc has a replaceable 0.5 inch (13 mm) thick wear plate. Chipping
production rates from 60 to 100 tons (55 to 90 tonnes) can be achieved
depending on chip size.
