goodcat1982: Where did you get the 10" pulley? I'm struggling to find one with the
appropriate attachments on it :(
Mark O'Donohoe: #lethal would you ever pop an emergency stop button on the system.....!
Otherwise pretty cool :)
Eddy Somair: No use when the compost is wet!! Nice construction
rob wylie: my suggestion is turn the whole thing 90 degrees and throw the dirt in from
the side. then as u fill the raised bed you can slide the whole thing
down the the length of the bed.
SwollenRhino: Throw your coffee grounds in the dirt !
ENG AHMED ADLY MOHAMMED HASSAN: قبل 3 أشهر
clark davis: good stuff
Jeff Beck: I just love this machine the more I watch it run.
Mark Donaghy: I'm in the final stages of building one very similar to yours but with dual
screens - 1/4" and 3/4" so mine is 6' long and powered by a B/S 4hp gas
motor. Also mine has a hopper so I can load it with my small tractor.
Thanks for the ideas and excellent video
dan staves: i'm going to make one out of an old dryer
Robert J Bulmer Jr: Truly amazing. A lot of hard work careful planning and thinking went into
this project without any doubt. Much praise for the end result.
KAIAPOGAN: REALLY GOOD! HAHAHAHAHA! Hey man you let your girlfriend doing the heavy
goodcat1982: get another small caster wheel, spin it 90 degrees compared to the other
wheels and use that to hold the trommel in place. Attach it to where you
have the metal brace. No more squeaking :)
Jeff Beck: I like the way the outer wheels form a rotatable container for the big
cylindrical screen. That is a pretty creative solution to that mechanical
Phillip Ramirez: looks like the drum is 28" bike rims and 1/2" hardware cloth.
jbkibs: nice! sure beats manually sifting... love it. i just might have to make one
of these that reduces from a 540 PTO ...
gino oreste cassinelli del sante: very good
Larry Carbaugh: Where did you find motors and pulleys?
What HP for the motor and shaft size?
Tom Knowles: How did you build it?
EMMA PENYA: How much cost this Homemade Rotary Soil? We are interesting in buy it,
tell me something about it please!!! it´s very cool! THANKS!! emma
George Martin: You only made this video to have that woman do your bidding. GENIUS!!
patrick donegan: XLNT!
eudamullah: What gauge was the mesh? Is it welded wire or galvanized wire cloth?
Prepping Angel: Any updates????
Brian Scheer: how do you build the trommel itself. i like your setup very cool!
socialyenept: your wifes a machine on the shovel
suziequeue1964: In this video you mention a number of features which were still under
development such as the motor platform, the guard to keep the drum from
running forward and the copper axle locking yoke.
Did you resolve these issues and if so - what was the final outcome? Do you
have a video of the final result?
I am very keen to replicate this
namuh223: Did you make the drum? If so could you share the construction. Otherwise
where you got it? Thank you in advance.
Alejandro Sanchez: Where u got the center bearings?
Dana White: Nice, Thanks!
Gordon McCoy: Interesting, David... Thanks!
TheRoachHut: Hi dont suppose u have some plans for this or a step by step guide, would
love to build one of these for my allotment. Tony
Kevin SulaeArts: This is super nice. Where did you find/buy the drum?
WiresAnSteel: could the whole thing be turned at right angles to the raised bed and move
along as the bed is filled to save shovelling?
Chris Towerton: I like it... Thanks for sharing
David Waltman: I hadn't looked at this in a while, and didn't realize there were so many
questions. 1) I would recommend a 1725 RPM AC induction motor. This one is
only 1/2 hp, which is plenty. These are everywhere; often in blowers and
fans. This one is borrowed from my metal buffer. 2) weave wire through the
spoke holes to attach the mesh 3) these are 26 in rims, but it doesnt
matter what you use. They just need to be the same. 4) yes, my wife was
shoveling so I could make the video :).
David Kovach: hugelkultur...check it out
Frank J. Panzer Jr: did you make the hoops yourself?or did you have them made for you. I
noticed the wheels and belt are in groves
finallytricked: to attach the hardware cloth to the bike rims, use metal wire that is
weaved in and out of the spoke holes. If you search the n e t for c o m p o
s t trommel, there is a instructable that shows how people did this.
abbafaen2007: you should see how a farwick joker working and its giving you more idees
for your seve.
John DeRocha: That is very SWEET!... The Basic setup you have definitely proves the
concept. Like the others that have posted I am very interested to know how
you made the screen. Please let us know how you attached the wire cloth to
the bicycle rims). :)
Mac Crollman: looks great! really like the small compact size so it can be moved around.
i'm building one from an old cement mixer, but it doesn't look nearly as
nice and clean as yours.
Rick: Thanks, I've been considering how to make an item to sift compost and soil.
Nice feasible design. Hope I can follow the basis of your concept. Thanks
XtremelyJ: This is amazing. Well done.
Coden11: this is so AWESOME. started my first garden this year, now you've got me
dreaming BIG! Thank you!
64marine: No idea what and how on the barrel construction methods, where/how?
