Trommel Screens for screening compost and soil
Hand cranked version is standard.  Motor and gearbox add-on available.

We searched high and low for a good trommel screen to get the rocks out of our rocky soil and the clumps out of our compost, but couldn't find anything, so we decided to make our own. After a few crazy ideas we came up with a simple and effective design. Our trommel screens are perfect for the home gardener, small farm, or anyone who has rocky soil or for world-friendly people who compost.
These screens are lightweight but ruggedly built and made to last. The standard screen comes with an economical hand-crank design, and there is an electric motor/gear reducer as an optional add-on.

Electric Trommel Screen
Rotary Dirt Sifting "Trommel" Screens
As the screen rotates, you shovel your dirt or compost into the open end of the screen. The fine particles (dirt, compost) fall out the bottom into the wheel barrow (not included) and the larger pieces (rocks, clumps) fall out of the open end of the screen and onto the ground or into a second wheel barrow (also not included).  The height is adjustable for different setups.  If the base does not fit your wheel barrow, it can be fitted to 2x4's which you can wedge into your wheelbarrow (if yours is wider than ours), or attached to 2x4's that sit on top of your wheel barrow (if yours is narrower than ours).

Electric Motor and Gearbox Add-on
A high quality motor and gear reducer are shipped separately with all parts required for add-on to the standard screen.  Simple on/off operation with a standard 110 volt plug.

Construction: Mechanical Steel Tubing for strength and light weight. Note that the back "plate" of the screen is made from wood because it is strong, rigid and lightweight - quite simply it is the best material for the job.
Our screens are built to work as hard as you do!
Finish: Paint or powder coat.  Color may vary.
Includes: Standard size screen, frame, hand-crank.  Motor add-on includes 110 volt electric motor with switch and right-angle gear reducer, and does not include the hand-crank.
Weight: 22 lbs. for manual version.  Add approximately 25 more lbs. for the motor and gearbox.
All screens are 15 inches in diameter and 24 inches long.
Standard screen has 5/16 x 7/8 inch openings which is perfect for relatively dry dirt and compost.

"Small Screen" (for sand and very dry soil) - 5/32 x 5/8 inch openings
"Large Screen" (for wetter soil/compost or less fine screening) - 3/4 x 1-5/8 inch openings

Note: Screens are made from flattened expanded steel and the hole sizes may vary slightly.
