Screening plant features redesigned conveyor, electric option

By |  November 14, 2013

The Pitbull 2300 screening plant from Lake Erie Portable Screeners is a compact and portable machine that processes topsoil, mulch, gravel and asphalt. The Pitbull 2300 is available in both diesel and electric-powered models.

According to Lake Erie, the machine is fully hydraulic and incorporates a tubular-frame construction, a Torflex axle and a reversible shaker. The Pitbull 2300’s frames are manufactured with structural tube steel. The tubular construction reduces noise and vibration and minimizes the risk of cracks and structural failures, the company says. All stress points are fully gusseted, and both attachment points and stress points are 100 percent welded. The result is a machine with a curb weight of 13,440 lbs.

The Pitbull 2300’s 20-ft.-long stacking conveyor adjusts hydraulically from heights of 6 ft., 8 in. to 13 ft. to feed material directly into a tri-axle or dump truck. The adjustment allows users to create larger stockpiles.

The screening plant is equipped with a loading apron that accepts up to 3 yd. of material at a time and up to 5 yd. at a time with a slower dump speed. With its low dump height of 8 ft., 4 1/2 in., users do not need loading ramps. They can fill the hopper using typical construction equipment like skid steers, backhoes, loaders or excavators.
