Peterson’s 4800E chain flail debarker for removing bark for clean pulp and paper chips has had a major redesign and has many new features.

The new 4800F features a 350hp (265 kW) Cat C9 Tier IV engine, upper and lower flail drives (similar to Peterson’s 5000H whole tree chipper), direct drive lower in-feed and out-feed rolls, floating direct drive upper feed rolls, a 5-ft. (1.5 m) wide bark pusher, and Peterson’s IQAN control system.

The machine also features a dedicated 100 gal. (567 L) hydraulic oil tank, and a 200 gal. (757 L) fuel tank to allow the 4800F to run an entire shift without fill-up.

With a retractable gooseneck, the highway legal 4800F is easily moved between jobs and has an estimated curb weight of 48,100 lbs. (21,817 kg). The four fixed landing gear (with floating pads) allow the 4800F’s operating height to be adjusted easily and stable once it’s on the job. The operator can operate the machine with a wireless remote, which also can pair with the Peterson 5900 disc chipper.

Peterson specializes in developing delivery and processing equipment that turns low-grade organic materials into high value products. Since 1982, Peterson has manufactured equipment for customers in more than 25 countries.
