“Flip Screen” Bucket Sifts Loads
An innovative new bucket design from Australia lets you scoop up a bucket of material, move it to a sorting area, and separate materials by size. Multiple screen options let the operator customize the operation to the materials being screened, from rocks and soil to compost, weed infested dirt, demolition remains, or scrap metal.
“Flip Screen Buckets are ideal for any type of recycling or recovery process where materials need to be separated out by size,” says Shawn Brush, Flip Screen USA.
Unlike most screening devices, the Flip Screen Bucket has no vibrating or internal moving parts. Two high capacity, hydraulic drive motors produce maximum torque to easily rotate the mostly covered bucket. The motors work with any hydraulic pressure or flow.
Rotate the bucket counterclockwise and an interior shelf retains oversize material as smaller material passes through the screen. Flip rotation to clockwise and the retained larger materials fall out of the bucket.
Buckets are available in 4 models sized for a wide variety of machines, from 1 1/2-ton skid steers to 60-ton excavators. They vary from the S10 with a 0.13 cu. yard load capacity and priced at $8,900 to the BL65 with its 0.85 cu. yd. capacity at $24,500. The price includes the buyer’s choice of screen.
Additional screens up to a 2-in. mesh are priced at $1,800, while screens from 2 to 3 in. are priced at $2,300. Prices of screens above 3 in. are available upon request.
Flip Screen Buckets can be used as a standard bucket with no screening as easily as with screening. The base is water-tight, allowing the operator to move wet materials around without spilling. An optional roller brush can be installed for screening sticky materials.
Durable, high-grade seals on the hydraulic motors allow the Flip Screen Bucket to operate under water. This transforms it from a screener to a mobile wash plant.
“Add the solid screen mixing plate and you can even mix concrete in a Flip Screen Bucket,” says Brush.
