Peterson’s 2710D caters to high production operations for wood and green waste and frequent moves between jobs.
Available through Australian supplier Komatsu Forest, the Peterson 2710D is accessible in five different models, including 4710, 5710 and 6710.
The machine provides the choice of engines of a powerful Caterpillar Tier IV C15 580 horsepower or optional Tier II C18 765 horsepower for export. As a heavy duty and mobile machine, the 2710D offers high throughputs in a reduced size.
Peterson’s three-stage grinding process provides a consistent product and better fracturing of material than previous models. Its patented impact release system airbags provides uniform grinding and protection from contaminated feedstock.
Its large feed opening is ideal for processing odd sized feedstock. The opening is among the largest in its class, measuring in at 60 by 32 inches, and offers a maximum lift of 42 inches.
Urethrane cushions and shear pins aim to protect the mill from catastrophic damage in the event of contaminated feedstock.
The 2710D also features a large grate area that enables it to produce materials to exact specifications. The quick change multiple grate system makes it easy to customise grate configurations and produce a range of finished materials. Grates can be removed through an easy access door on the side wall.
