Peterson 1700D Horizontal Grinder

Overview

Heavy duty and mobile, the 1700D Horizontal Grinder can readily reduce a wide range of materials.

The 1700D’s large feed opening, measures 54″ x 27″ (137 x 69 cm). When boosted by Peterson’s high-lift feed roll, the feed opening’s maximum lift of 41.5 inches (105 cm) can tackle the largest of feedstock, and allows excellent accessibility to the rotor for maintenance.

The 1700D Horizontal Grinder is equipped with a Caterpillar Tier IV C9.3 455 hp (EU Stage V, 339 kW) engine, or an optional, export-only C9.3B Tier III, 415 hp (309 kW) engine. At 44,000 pounds (20 000 kg), it is the lightest of Peterson’s grinder series, and is easily transportable.

Applications
