    Here are a few pics of a Lindig L-40 Soil Screener/Shredder that i bought last summer. It was in rough shape when i bought it. Mainly surface rust though. I dismantled and replaced wear parts, sandblasted and painted. Anyone else using anything similar? (BTW, this is my first attempt at posting a picture.)

    Yes it was a lot of work. I paid next to nothing for it and it is worth quite a bit now that it is refurbished. Probably had 150 hrs in the process, but overall i learned alot and i am quite satisfied. Havent got to use it yet, cant wait for some warmer weather.

    Looks great. Did you use spray cans? Did you sand, prime and then paint?

    Nice job...

    I wish I could find something like that. I've got about 50 yards of composted horse manure and almost twice as much compost (chipped limbs and leaves) I've been cooking that I got from the guys that clear the power lines. That thing would come in very handy instead of trying to design and build a stationary trommel like I'm doing.

    Using a 966 cat loader, and older international backhoe, but probably mainly a 873 bobcat skidsteer to load the screener.

    I sandblasted it, then painted the screener with a regular air gun (applied almost 5 gals of yellow and 2 1/2 gals of red oxide primer)

    This unit will screen about 40 yards per hour. Cant wiat to put it to use. Ill post some pics as soon as i get screening.:cool2:

    I have sold the screener. I was offered a price that i couldnt pass up! Im acutally working o purchasing another one. The next one will be a 100 cubic yard per hour machine. Ill fix it up and screen some soil and eventually probably sell it. It anyone out there is looking for a screener for high clay content soils, Lindig is a great machine to buy. They are rare, which can make them pricey. Ill post some more finished pics of it if i get the chance.

    I have the same unit, minus the conveyor and screen tub. Could not get the motor to start last time I wanted to use it, so I'm looking to sell, know anyone interested? Jack
