System pressure transducers and remote monitoring capability simplify set up and provide complete engine and system parameters. The 5710D can be operated by wireless remote from the comfort of your loader.

The optional tow dolly makes highway transportation between jobs easy. The 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.

Since 1981, Peterson has specialized in the developing of delivery and processing equipment that turns low-grade organic materials into high value products.
