Any experience of soil screeners?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently digging out my muck heap and I've found about 40 tons of really decent soil. There is probably the same again in another heap up the field.

Any recommendations on a machine I could hire to screen the rubbish out of it to leave decent soil behind ? Needs to be able to use in a field and ideally mobile in use so I can move it to the soil rather than bringing the soil to it.

Any suggestions welcome, thanks.

Red rhino 3 way screener absolutely brilliant but there about £250-£300  a day but a good output depending on soil type

Probably too small for your needs. but I have been using a Scheppach RS350 for various garden projects and it has done a very good job, there are videos on YouTube of various Scheppach models in action. Powered by a 230V induction motor.

I dont think 40-80 ton makes it viable. By the time you hire in a screener, then put a guy on a slew and dumper for the day its going to be expensive soil. Probably cheaper to lose or remove what you have on site and import some decent gear.
