Peterson 2710D Horizontal Grinder

Overview

The Peterson 2710D horizontal grinder is designed for operations requiring high production and frequent moves between jobs.

The 2710D is powerful, with your choice of engines: Caterpillar Tier IV C15 580 hp (433 kW), C18 755 hp (563 kW), or optional Tier II C18 765 hp (570 kW) for export. Heavy duty and mobile, the 2710D has outstanding production throughput for a machine of this size.

The 2710D’s large feed opening can reduce a wide range of materials. Measuring 60¾ x 32 inches (153 x 81 cm), when boosted by Peterson’s high lift feed roll, the feed opening’s maximum lift of 44 inches (112 cm), is amongst the largest in its class.

Applications

  • Wood Waste Recycling

    Peterson horizontal grinders are ideal for wood waste recycling applications. Because of the limited options to reuse building materials or wood recycled from demolition efforts, reduced wood waste can be recycled to make biomass, bedding material, mulch, or compost.
