Peterson 6710D Horizontal Grinder

Overview

The 6710D Horizontal Grinder is Peterson’s largest grinder, and is designed for operations that need the most durable, highest output machine.

Powered by a 1125hp (839 Kw) Tier IV, Caterpillar C32 engine (or an export only Tier II engine), the 6710D is designed for the toughest jobs. With a feed opening of 50 x 66 inches (127 x 168 cm), the 6710D can even process large stumps that used to be reserved for tub grinders. The grinder is particularly suited for land clearing operations or other applications where mobility is desired. Track mounting also reduces material handling costs in conventional recycling yards as well.

  • Construction and Demolition (C&D) Recycling

    Construction & Demolition Recycling (C&D) is mixed material associated with construction and demolition. The material could include wood, cardboard, plastic, metal, wire, roofing shingles, concrete and more. By separating and recycling different materials it reduces landfill use and tipping fees, while also producing value-added products.

  • 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.
