   The Peterson 5710D Horizontal Grinder:
The 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, 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, the 5710D Horizontal Grinder can readily reduce a wide range of material including stumps.
Peterson’s three-stage grinding process with an up turning rotor and large grate area enables the 5710D to produce materials to exact specifications.
The 5710D Horizontal Grinder IQAN control panel features a large LCD display that provides the operator with the information needed to efficiently operate the unit. System pressure transducers and remote monitoring capability simplify set up and provide complete engine and system parameters. The 5710D can be operated by wireless remote from the comfort of your loader.
The optional tow dolly makes highway transportation between jobs easy. The quick-change multiple grate system
makes it easy to customize grate configurations to produce a wide variety of finished materials. Grates are removed through an access door on the side wall.
Peterson’s 3-Stage Grinding Process:
This 3-stage process results in more accurate and consistent finished products. An up-cutting motor draws material into the grinding chamber and minimizes bit wear - this provides the first stage in material size reduction. An anvil positioned for optimum sizing and production, provides the second stage in the sizing process. Finally, the last step in the 3-stage sizing process, the provision of a large grate area results in the high- production of a wide variety of wood and green waste materials and end sized products.
Peterson’s Patented Impact Release System:
A patented impact release system detects any ungrindable objects within the grinding chamber by opening the anvil and first grate section to eject these minimising any damage. Having completed this process, the machine then returns to normal operation, resulting in more uptime and reducing costly damage from any heavy contamination in the feed material.
