May 17, 2010 - PRLog -- Screening and recycling soils, rocks, dirt has become an important part of landscaping, excavation and construction. Gone are the days when it was acceptable practice to load up trucks for dumping in a gully or wetland or landfill somewhere. The price of gas and dump fees have risen making changes necessary. At the same time awareness of Green Building is increasing.

The price of topsoil screeners for small to medium jobs has dramatically decreased as well. This means that one can purchase a vibratory soil screener for much the same cost as a high-end rideable lawn-mower (or a very cheap car). For landscapers, construction contractors and excavators, topsoil screening presents an opportunity for a new stream of revenue. Dug out soils and rocks can be recycled, sold and re-used.

There are six things you need to consider before purchasing a topsoil screener.

1)What kinds of jobs do you intend to do?
2)What kinds of materials are you going to screen?
3)How much money do you want to spend?
4)What kind of machine do you have? Skidsteer, backhoe, bucket tractor, front-loader, etc.?
5)What kind of hourly production do you expect?
6)How important is portability and compact size?

There are many topsoil screeners widely varying in size and price for sale on the Internet. Before making any major purchase it's best to do your research and check out different manufacturers and models.  Answer the questions above and you will know the specifications for the topsoil screener best suited for your needs.

After looking at other vendors and models and price-comparisons, I suggest you check out  topsoil screeners by OMH ProScreen inc. USA . There are 6 models to choose from, one to fit every job, big or small, and every budget. The PVG-12V (aka The Green Giant) is only $6599 delivered to your door (lower 48).

The PVG series of soil screeners can separate out soils, rocks, dirt, compost, gravel, sand, wood chips, garden debris and more. Hourly production depends upon the size of your bucket (how much you can feed the screener in one pass), the moisture content of the materials being screened, the size of the woven screen and the distance you have to travel back and forth to your screener.

For example, the  PVG-96 two-product screener can screen 30 to 50 cubic yards per hour. The PVG-C120 three-product soil screener can produce 40 to 60 cubic yards per hour.

For vibratory soil screeners the size of the screener used is important. The PVG line of topsoil screeners have 10 screen sizes available from 5/32 of an inch to six inches. Changing out screens can be an annoying task with other screener models. The PVG screens can be swapped out by one person in about five minutes.

For portability the PVG screeners win hands-down. Designed to be picked up and moved around on the jobsite with your skidsteer's (or whatever machine you use) blade or lifting lugs it can be taken where it is needed. The PVG-12V was specifically constructed to fit sideways on your trailer along with your machine saving time and travel.

Seeing is believing. Check out videos and photos of the PVG series of topsoil screeners here or
