Peterson’s 2710D grinder is powering through wood waste in Queensland’s Atherton Tablelands.
The Peterson 2710D horizontal grinder is designed for operations requiring high production and frequent moves between jobs.
Designed for land clearing plus wood and green waste recycling, the Morbark 3400XT is an aggressive horizontal grinder with the added value of operator-friendly features.
The 3400XT Wood Hog features a pin and plate hammermill with 813 millimetre (32 inch) tip swing and a variable-speed infeed system consisting of one 863 millimetre (34 inch) diametre top compression roll (Yoke) with directly-driven planetary drive and four strands of WDH 120 Chain in a staggered configuration.
The grates/screens are accessed from the rear of the grinding chamber and as they are free floating in their own track and have no fasteners on the inside of the chamber, are easily changed when required. The 3400XT can accommodate engines from 520 to 800 horsepower and is also available with electric drive. The Morbark Integrated Control System (MICS) monitors engine and system pressures as well as feed wheel position and automatically adjusts feed rates to maximise production and engine efficiency. Material discharge is by means of a dual conveyor system.
According to Morbark distributor Lincom Group, a significant feature of the 3400XT is it can be manufactured as narrow as 2.53 metres and, depending on chosen options, weighs approximately 32,000 kilograms making the grinder a versatile machine with transport flexibility. Exclusive to Morbark, the model has a flexible and easily adjustable torque limiter which, in the event of something un-grindable entering the mill, will help protect the driveline and hammermill from damage. Additionally, the grinder features sloped infeed sides, providing operators with improved visibility and loading efficiency.
