According to a statement, the 5050H is equipped with a large feed throat and can accept up to a 23-inch (56 cm) diameter single tree or multiple smaller stems. It can be configured with a three or four pocket disc, with several optional sheave sizes to make precisely the chip needed.

The standard three-pocket disc produces chips from 5⁄8 to 1¼ inches (16–32 mm) long, while the optional four-pocket disc produces chips from ½ to 1 inches (13–25 mm) long. Chipping production rates up to 150 tons (136 tonnes) per hour can be achieved depending on chip size and wood characteristics.

The heavy-duty 66-inch diameter, 4¾ inch thick (168 x 12 cm) chipper disc has replaceable ½-inch (13 mm) wear plates and conventional Babbitt-type knives or Key Knife components are available.

According to Peterson Pacific, the stationary 5050H can be configured from 600 to 1 000 hp (447–745 kW) at the disc depending on the needs of the application. An additional 600 hp (447 kW) electric motor powers the needs of the hydraulic system.
