Whether you’re sifting nutrient soil for high quality potting soil or need to separate out large rocks for your heftier projects, you need a soil screener that can get the job done. There is a screener for every size of project, but the selection of topsoil screeners for sale can be overwhelming. What’s the difference between electric or gas powered? How big of a screener do I need?

Here’s the dirt on what screener you need for your project.


What energy powered screener do I need?

While they serve the same purpose, your comfort level with each of these energy sources as well as the environment you’ll be screening at can help guide whether you purchase electric, propane, or diesel-powered screeners. Consider the following factors:

In a setting with abundant electricity

If you are working in an underground setting or in a facility where you have an abundance of electricity at your disposal, you’ll want to check out our 2300E, electric screener.

In a closed facility

While it’s clean burning, we suggest a propane powered screener when working inside a closed facility. Check out our 2300P, powered by natural gas.

In an outdoor setting

Diesel is your go-to when outside. All of our direct feed severe duty screeners come standard with diesel engine.

What type of topsoil screener do I need?

At the end of the day, the type of screener you need is dependent upon how many yards per hour your looking to screen as well as the types of materials you plan on feeding the screener. Let’s break it down by each of our direct feed, dirt screeners.

Pitbull 5700

Our biggest severe duty screener is for large contractors who have all the equipment lined up (from wheel loaders to compactors.) Offering a total of 140 square feet of screen area and two hydraulically driven conveyors, the Pitbull 5700 can efficiently move material exactly where you need it.

Pitbull 2300

Our middle line screener, the Pitbull 2300 can streamline production, helping generate contractor grade material or potting soil.

Pitbull 2300B

While it is a small topsoil screener, its bite is just as big as its bark. We recommend the Pitbull 2300B for those who are looking to screen on occasional projects and are not in need of a conveyor or feeder to get the job done.

What about a Grizzly?

Grizzly Screens are static rock screens built to withstand the big stuff. Whether you have broken concrete you’d like to crush, or just some boulders that could potentially damage your shaker screen, we recommend a Grizzly Screen for any and every project.
