Grinder produces materials to exact specifications

Powered by a Caterpillar C27 engine with 1,050 horsepower, Peterson‘s 5710C horizontal grinder has a 60- by 44-inch feed opening along with Peterson’s high lift feed roll to reduce a wide range of material, including stumps. The grinder’s square-shaft rotor and large grate area produce materials to exact specifications. Setting the Impact Release System in detent mode provides consistent product sizing, and switching to the floating anvil mode allows for a primary reduction with reduced fuel consumption and protection from contaminated feedstocks. The 5710C also includes the new Adaptive Control System with fault indicators and a fully adjustable feed system.
