Sometimes one screen can’t do it all. For heavy duty screening, it is important to have the right tools to get the job done. That’s where a Pitbull Grizzly can help. Grizzly screens are made to do the heavy separating and make your material screening more efficient. Here is everything you need to know about Grizzly screens.


What is a Grizzly Screen?

Unlike your regular topsoil screeners, Grizzly screens, sometimes referred to as rock screeners or rock Grizzlys, are static rock separators which are used to pre-screen bulkier loads. Set on an incline, large material slides out of the way separating larger debris that would otherwise pile atop or damage your screen.

The secret are the industrial quality Grizzly bars. Set parallel to each other and secured by thru bolts, Grizzly bars are strong enough to withstand the extreme pressure and force from larger debris, allowing smaller materials to fall through and be used later. Adjustable Grizzly bars offer an easy way to sort materials for the size of your project.


When would I use a Grizzly Screen?

Stop feeding your topsoil screener oversized material. You’ve seen it before, large rocks or debris can pile up as you screen, blocking materials from efficiently passing through. A material blockage could ruin your screens, causing early replacement of your topsoil screens and put a stop to your production line. This problem could cost you – in lost production and penalties for project delays. When processing material in a variety of sizes, Grizzly screens are the perfect solution.

Larger material to screen – If you’re handling a load with rocks and rubble in a variety of sizes, Grizzly screens are perfect for sizing and sorting materials into what you need to crush and what you can use.

Heavy debris – Grizzly bars were made to handle the heavy impact of large materials that you worry might damage your soil screener. (If you don’t think your screener can handle what you’re throwing at it, check out our line of soil screeners built tough and made to last.)

Too much, too fast – No one wants rocks piling up on their soil screener. The inclined framing of a Grizzly Screen helps cull the larger debris, so that your oversized pile ends up on the ground, not on your screen.

Efficient screening – Get your profits screened and off the ground quicker. This pre-screening tool is self-cleaning, helping to speed up production, and is one step toward streamlining your soil screening process.
