Peterson 5710D Horizontal Grinder

Overview

Astec's Peterson 5710D Horizontal Grinder is a tracked horizontal grinder designed for high-volume producers with very demanding end-product specifications.

Powered by a Tier IV Caterpillar C27 1050HP (772 kW) engine or an optional C32 1125hp (839 Kw) engine, the 5710D provides the highest power to weight ratio of any Peterson grinder. At 88,500 pounds (40,150 kg)*, the 5710D 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, 5710D Horizontal Grinder can readily reduce a wide range of material including stumps.
