14, 2014, Eugene, Ore. — Peterson has released
the new 5710D horizontal grinder, powered by a Tier 4i Caterpillar C27 1050hp engine.
At 88,500 pounds
(40,150 kg) the 5710D was designed for operations that require frequent moves
between jobs without a special permit. An optional transportation dolly allows
the Peterson 5710D to be easily moved, and then setup for operation within
With a feed opening of
60 x 40 inches (152 x 102 mm) combined with Peterson’s high lift feed roll; the
5710D can readily reduce a wide range of material including stumps.
The 5710D utilizes
Peterson’s Impact Release System that can be set in the detent mode to provide
consistent product sizing or switched to the floating anvil mode for a primary
reduction where accurate sizing is less critical. The floating anvil mode
provides a high production primary reduction with more protection from
contaminated feedstocks and reduced fuel consumption.
The 5710D’s new generation
of controls includes Peterson’s high production Adaptive Control System and a
fully adjustable feed system that can be optimized for a wide range of
The 5710D features a
large grate area that enables the 5710D to produce materials to exact
specifications. 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 enlarged access door on the side wall of the 5710D.
Another major innovation
included on the 5710D is Peterson’s Impact Cushion System. Urethane cushions
allow movement of the compression roll/anvil housing pivot shaft, cushioning
impacts due to contaminants in the feed material. Shear pins above the cushion
and a sensing circuit that stop the engine help protect the shaft from
catastrophic damage in the event of a severe impact.
