Recently the company have upgraded their Peterson 2710D track-mounted horizontal grinder to its big brother, the 1050HP Astec Peterson 5710D which has been supplied by the UK dealer, Neutron Equipment Ltd who are based in Reading, Berkshire.
Mike Boden – Operations Manager, takes up the story, “We are one of the largest wood recycling companies in the UK which is one of the reasons we have invested in the Peterson.
“Previously we had the 2710D to process the wood waste which we have now outgrown, so we needed a bigger machine, and because the Peterson and Neutron have given us a first-class service, we decided to look at its bigger brother, the 1050hp Astec Peterson 5710D Horizontal grinder. Neutron organised a demonstration and we were completely in awe of the power of the machine which gave enormous throughput of a quality end product.
