It's hard to get any production out of those screeners because your loading/take away equipment has to do soooo much. I've always been curious about orbit screeners, rented one and was extremely impressed they go for +/-25k at auction. Pretty ultimate for mobility and applications.
I've also seen stuff like this go for around 10k, all depends on your application I guess.
Sorry for the hijack, Krazy.
I agree with you on the production but my line of thinking with a screener at least to start with is to be able to set the little thing on the 550 and haul out the skid and screen 100-200 yards tops at a time. I also don't think I'll be getting a loader anytime soon so am stuck with just a skid. I like the Orbit but haven't seen them go reasonable. I have kind of settled on the Proscreen(the three product model) for now if one would get cheap enough. Missed one this winter for $6,500. Sigh...
