  • Increasing chip quality with lower bark content
  • Increasing reliability of performance with consistent quality
  • Increasing loads of chips per chain used
  • Increasing machine run-time with reduced chain change-over

PEERLESS® Debarking Chains are subject to our rigorous and continuous quality control processes; plus extensive research, development and testing, all resulting in a superior debarking chain product. Available in three distinct types: 630 short, 656 heavy and the revolutionary PEERLESS® 656 round links.

PEERLESS™ 656 Round link: a similar material to the heavy, but designed for link rotation while in use which significantly increases the chain life by distributing impact and wear better than any debarking chain available.  The round link design also weighs-in with 10% more material than the 656 heavy; enhancing bark removal and improving chip quality.  This is the premium debarking chain available and it provides the results expected.
