then stand it up on legs, and let gravity do the rest????? average labor can shovel about a yard or 2 an hour???
That rig is scary cheap.

BTW, to clarify, low cost = my screener budget is 600 bucks... but it must eliminate as much labor as possible.

With my limited experience, I will not use half inch screen parent material (disease lurking crap). 1/4" to 1/8th yes I wood.

My efforts is to approach the entire landscape living root zone with the highest quality and highest value product for the entire community; go Rutuba Organics and go East-side Lake O, FLA community.

Tom, please don't forget that proper compost starts with the feed stock inputs and not the final screening process.screening out the DISEASE will not work only proper composting will eliminate or diminish the factors that cause pathogen spread
