Peterson Introduces the 5710D Horizontal Grinder

With a feed opening of 60 by 40 in. (152 by 102 cm) combined with Peterson’s high lift feed roll; the 5710D can reduce a wide range of material, including stumps.

The all-new 5710D horizontal grinder is latest design of high production grinders by Peterson. Powered by a Tier IVi Caterpillar C27 engine making 1,050 hp (783 kW), the 5710D has the power to handle the toughest jobs, according to the manufacturer.

At 88,500 lbs. (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 minutes.

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 materials.

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 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, according to the manufacturer.
