Anyone used a screen like this? Price is very catchy, but it does look extremely slow and not so efficient. Obviously something like a trommel is going to do a better job. I've got 1/2 acre back yard to rip up and screen as well as 100 yards of fill. Seemed like something I could use to pick away at without renting a big machine and going at it all at once. http://www.omhproscreen.com/products/slg-78
To me it would all depend on what type of machinery you have. If all I had was a skidsteer, I would probably buy something like that. It would be slow but guys with just skidsteers are usually doing smaller scale jobs anyways. Big difference working with screened loam opposed to regular loam.
I saw them bouncing off. Looks like grizzly bars are not an option. Only thing I can think is, running a courser screen, it might be heavy enough to take the abuse, but then you are screening things twice. Hurry up and wait
Of course to get an actual usable screen with all the pertinent parts is more like 5k. Could build my own for way less than that. I'd love to build a small trommel screen some day. Would need a lot of research though.
