2700D Horizontal Grinder

Powerful, Compact, and Productive

2700D Horizontal Grinder


The 2700D is designed for operations requiring high production and frequent moves between jobs. At 62,000 pounds (28 123 kg), it is amongst the lightest of our grinder series.

The 2700D is powerful with a Caterpillar Tier IV C15 580 hp (433 kW), C18 755 hp (563 kW), or an optional export-only C18 Tier II, 765 hp (570 kW) engine. Heavy duty and mobile, the 2700D can readily reduce a wide range of materials.

The 2700D’s large feed opening, measures 61″ x 32″ (153 x 81 cm), when boosted by Peterson’s high lift feed roll, the feed opening’s maximum lift of 44 inches (112 cm), can tackle the largest of feedstock.

Peterson’s Adaptive Feed Control System, featuring a fully adjustable feed system, is optimized for a wide range of materials. The 2700D control panel features a large display that provides the operator with complete engine and system parameters to simplify set up and efficiently operate the unit.

The 2700D features a quick-change multiple grate system, making it easy to customize grate configurations. Grates are removed through an easy-access door on the side wall. With Peterson’s patented up-turn rotor and proprietary bits, the 2700D has an exceptional wear life.
