Peterson 5700D Horizontal Grinder

Overview

The 5700D Horizontal Grinder is designed for high-volume producers with very demanding end-product specifications.

Powered by a Tier II or Tier IV Caterpillar C27 1050HP (772 kW) engine, or an optional Tier II or Tier IV 1125hp (839 kW) C32 engine, the 5700D provides the highest power to weight ratio of any Peterson grinder.

At 82,000 pounds (37195 kg), the 5700D is designed for operations requiring high production and frequent moves between jobs. With a feed opening of 60 x 40 inches (152 x 102 cm) combined with Peterson’s high lift feed roll, 5700D Horizontal Grinder can readily reduce a wide range of material including stumps.
