Homemade Rotary Soil / Compost Screen




What do you think about this video?

TamaMuruhya: Hello. I am Japanese. My name is hirohide sakuma. In order to make a rotary soil sieve, I have referred to your video. A lot of industrial waste comes out from my garden, so I accused those who sell land. Therefore, I want to show this video to the prosecution. I appreciate your cooperation.

Adriano Cognome: Good morning, I wanted to have a list of the material used to build this screen. I would like to build one myself as well. If someone has some sort of design with the material I need, I would really enjoy it. Thanks a lot to everyone. I live in Italy

Lord Uragia: I need to build this for my school and I've had zero experience with stuff like this

Jose Rodriguez: Super coolllllllllll.

James Salerno: I like your brace. I love how you put that dust guard on.  One question: How did you size it to fit the drum & casters properly. Any advice is helpful. Thanks.

Stephen Robb: Did you ever make a "scoop loader" so you can use the tractor with it? I would like to see an image of it if you did. Thanks!

Saud H: Good project i like it .. thanks from Saudi Arabia

Tools & More DIY: Wao.... great project... specially the capacity to have different drums for other applications ... how may I contact you? Where are you located?, just subscribed 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻, best to you.

Jordan Bronson: Great Idea !!! Put this on Wheels a bit bigger than your Garden Bed... Slide that down as you go, that way it's filled on its own. Next year, use the same concept and use it to Clean all the stuff in your Garden Bed aka, roots, grass etc..., so that way you don't have to clean or pick by hand. I see a Multi-Usage if you just added the Wheels :))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

ONIT: need pulley wheels on each end where the friction is. just put the grooves of the wheel on the edge of the rim

gargois1: This is pretty damn cool

Rick Burda: i have one for sale, see houston Craigslist. has adjustability and move ability.

Surfview: What a great accomplishment! Thank you for sharing it with us.

Tooterr102 E.: You sound like you are out of wind, dang did she work so hard that you are out of wind. She is definitely a keeper. Lol

frosty992001: Thank you for the video. It is just what I need to clean the gravel for my aquaponics system. :)

Mark Saggese: Nice design.

Alb Alps: Put some oil please!

nadjib labed: plz what is the usefulness of that equipment

LiberalDoc: Okay. Pack it up. I'll email you my address and you can bring that thing here. I've now HAND sifted 63 recycling bins (FILLED TO THE TOP) worth of 'landscape' rock from JUST my front, SIDE yard...a 20 X 12 foot area. These SOBs are a minimum of 4 feet deep and so tightly packed that just the initial ground break requires the use of an ICE PICK because not only was a hay fork too thick, so was a 1 inch diameter metal pole that I couldn't even hammer into the ground. Previous owner stated he'd had "about a ton of 'em dumped (on an 80x120 ft lot) every 3-5 years for FORTY FIVE YEARS. So uh, yeah, a little advice for anyone who thinks those MF are a good idea....THEY ARE NOT. Please....rethink that horrible idea.

David Waltman: I should respond to comments more often, I know. Apparently there is a Popular Mechanics article which came out in 2014 (I built this in 2010) which explains everything  that I explain in the video. There are links to it below in the comments from other people. I am amazed how many people have copied this. This was a hasty job, and a lot of people have made various improvements. This version is just three bike rims wired to some 1" chicken wired, with regular belts from the auto parts store. The pulleys are from Hardwick's in Seattle, but they are readily available online. The motor was one that was laying around the shop. Wheels are from Lowe's. I got the idea driving by a big dirt and bark yard in Snohomish, WA, where they had one of these that was about 40 feet long and 12 feet high...a little big for my raised beds, but same idea.

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
