You are in Memphis? I don't mind bringing it if your interested in it. I have a completely different design in mind. This rig is very productive and it is very simple to use and maintain. Only a few moving parts.

There is a concern in that it is your first one and according to the threads only recently tested. Seems an agitator is needed. But I like to talk. Have any one down in Texas who needs a job,you can bring him also.

I've run about 700 yards of compost thru it and it works good. Used 3 times this week. I just added avalanche liner to it which helps a lot. I've also added more rollers to the floor last year. I have done a few upgrades to it since I first built it. One guy can operate Two guys isn't really any quicker. You should be able to fill your sp100 in about 45 sec or so.

I will sell the bin separate from the trailer if that interest you. It was originally designed to go on my 20' dove tail low boy trailer. Then I found the trailer it is mounted on. I would sell just the bin if that is any interest to you.

Our help here is great but you may need to learn some Espanol.

Let me give it some thought over the weekend. Are there other materials it can work besides compost. My cotton burr compost is about 30 % moisture content.
I am interested but need to think through and right now I am going to sleep on it.
I don't like to carry more than 7 yards on my current trailer so seems another trailer is necessary.

7 yards is all I can haul too. That completely fills the bin. I had used mulch and some gravel in it. Gravel is just to heavy for the belt system. You can put about two yards of rock in there. Bulk mulch will go thru it but it bridges more. You just have to push the material down to the belt. Its still better than shoveling.

Here is a video of the first run we used it to fill a buddy's raised garden beds with topsoil compost
mix. These boxes are 40x18x8' to give you an idea.
