Model 5600

The Mighty Giant Model 5600 is a production model grinder with a hydraulic fork as standard equipment, allowing the operator to control the entire grinder from the relative comfort of the Operator’s Control Center. The 25′ long, top-driven, folding elevator swings from side to side, for ease of use in grinding into piles, buildings or trucks. The tub opens hydraulically for easy access to the hammers and screens – eliminating the need to climb in and out of the tub. The Mighty Giant comes equipped with your choice of Caterpillar or Cummins Engines 630 HP, featuring 5-Year extended engine warranty coverage. You get more than 40 years of hands-on, in-the-field experience in every Mighty Giant we build.

Standard on every Mighty Giant – from the PTO Model to the Hydrafork – is the hydraulic opening tub for easy access to the mill, hammers and screens.
