The 5710C is Peterson™s latest generation of high production track grinders. Powered by the Caterpillar C27 or C32 engine at 1050 horsepower, this grinder provides the highest power to weight ratio of any Peterson grinder. At approximately 83,000 pounds (37650 kg) the 5710C was designed for operations requiring high production and frequent moves between jobs. With a feed opening of 60 x 44 in. (1524 x 1118 mm) combined with Peterson™s high lift feed roll, the 5710C can readily reduce a wide range of material including stumps.
The 5710C utilizes Peterson™s new generation of 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 5710C™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 new control panel provides self-diagnostics for faulty sensors and open circuits. Fault indicators make trouble shooting easy. An optional on-board modem permits remote diagnostics and monitoring of many machine parameters. The 5710C 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 5710C features a large grate area that enables the 5710C to produce materials to exact specifications. Our 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 of the 5710C.
Another major innovation included on the 5710C 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.
