Every 25-years or so, many varieties of nut orchards are pulled up and replanted to increase quality and yield of their crops, Peterson Pacific Corp. said. In its new video, instead of burning the old trees, they are turned into mulch using a Peterson 6710D horizontal grinder.
The mulch will help replenish the soil and help retain moisture for the new saplings. Peterson horizontal grinders are ideal for this type of application.
Peterson said the 6710D Horizontal Grinder is Peterson’s largest grinder, and is designed for operations that need the most durable, highest output machine. Powered by a 1125hp (839 Kw) Tier IV, Caterpillar C32 engine (or an export only Tier II engine), the 6710D is designed for the toughest jobs.
With a feed opening of 50 x 66 inches (127 x 168 cm), the 6710D can even process large stumps that used to be reserved for tub grinders. The grinder is particularly suited for land clearing operations or other applications where mobility is desired.
Track mounting also reduces material handling costs in conventional recycling yards as well.With the R+ package, the 6710D Horizontal Grinder can be configured as a mid-speed grinder to handle heavily contaminated piles, and easily converts back to a high speed grinder for typical land clearing operations.
Peterson’s three-stage grinding process with an up turning rotor and large grate area enables the 6710D Horizontal Grinder 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 enlarged access door on the side wall.
Since 1981, Peterson has specialized in the developing of delivery and processing equipment that turns low-grade organic materials into high value products.Follow us on social media:
