Peterson 5700C Horizontal Grinder
February 9, 2012

Powered by a Caterpillar C27 engine making 1050hp (783 kW), the Peterson 5700C Horizontal Grinder has the power to handle the toughest jobs. At 78,000 pounds (35380 kg) the 5700C was designed for operations that require frequent moves between jobs without a special permit. With a feed opening of 60 x 40 inches (152 x 102 mm) combined with Peterson’s high lift feed roll, the 5700C can readily reduce a wide range of material including stumps. The 5700C utilizes Peterson’s Impact Release System that can be set in the detent mode to provide consistent product sizing or switched to the floating anvil mode for a primary reduction where accurate sizing is less critical. The floating anvil mode provides a high production primary reduction with more protection from contaminated feedstocks and reduced fuel consumption. The 5700C’s new generation of controls includes Peterson’s high production Adaptive Control System and a fully adjustable feed system that can be optimized for a wide range of materials.
