Peterson 4710D Horizontal Grinder

Overview

The 4710D Horizontal Grinder is a track mounted horizontal grinder designed for high-volume producers with very demanding end-product specifications.

Boasting 18 inches (46 cm) of ground clearance—this model is particularly suited for land clearing operations or other applications where mobility and frequent moving is desired. Track mounting also reduces material handling costs in conventional recycling yards as well.


The 4710D Horizontal Grinder is powered by a Tier IV Caterpillar C18 engine rated at 755 horsepower (563 kW). A Tier II (export only), 765 horsepower (570 kW) engine is also available. It features Peterson’s Adaptive Control System, which controls all components of the feed system to optimize output. This system senses variations in the engine load and adapts the operating parameters to produce the maximum amount of material at all times.
