Peterson 6710B Track Mounted Heavy-Duty Horizontal Grinder
February 24, 2009

The Peterson model 6710B Track Mounted Horizontal Grinder is powered by a 1000-horsepower Caterpillar C27 diesel engine and is designed for the biggest jobs. With a feed opening of 50 x 66 inches, the 6710B can even process large stumps that used to be reserved for tub grinders! The grinder is particularly suited for land clearing operations or other applications where mobility is desired. A track mounted Horizontal Grinder also reduces material handling costs in conventional recycling yards, as well. The 6710B features Peterson’s Adaptive Control System II, which controls all components of the feed system to optimize output. This third-generation system monitors the grinding load and varies the speed of the feed system to keep the engine working at the top of its power curve. It automatically accelerates the feed system when the engine load is light, slows when the load is high, and reverses engine speed drops.
