To avoid the astronomical expense of fixed and portable screening plants, many compost suppliers are moving to the screening plant which fits right on to their loader and excavator.
These high volume Flipscreen screening buckets allow operators to fully utilise their already available machines. Compost can be turned using a large screen mesh to aerate the compost as it breaks down. This screen mesh can then be removed in 5 minutes to allow a finer mesh to be fitted, giving a fully screened compost product.
I should mention that when I announced purchasing the S45 Flipscreen, my Brother & operating partner called the Flipscreen idea stupid and solicited two sub contract excavators to laugh along with him. I forged ahead, into composting and screening highly organic soil. A very, very high profit component. The highest profit margin product we sell. But the profit goes up from just the soil sales. In two years I have made fools of the naysayers.
