Peterson’s all-new 3310 Drum Chipper is a radical departure from traditional drum chippers.
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 easily serviced by large access doors on both sides of the machine.
The 3310’s transverse design allows for a much smaller operations deck, and 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.
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 3310 is available with a four-pocket drum for typical biomass chips, or a eight-pocket drum for microchipping applications. The chips exit the machine from an innovative auger system which feeds an accelerator to increase payload density.
Designed for export markets, the 3310 can be easily transported in a high-cube, 40-foot container, significantly saving on overseas shipping expense.
