Today I was running errands. I ran to Elk River and finally purchased a hitch for the new ATV. I was looking for a trailer that I could pull behind the ATV possibly converting it so that I could screen soil into it, recover the finds and haul the soil away from the dig site so when the hole expands, I am not moving fill dirt more than twice.
I really did not find anything that I was looking for. I have an old snowmobile trailer that I am contemplating putting down steel mesh on the bed so that I could overlay mesh in different sections for different applications. However, this idea has many problems to over come.
One problem is the agitation of the screen. One solution is to put the screens on wood frames and attach rollers or tires to the bottom. But that would still be a manual agitation.
There has to be a product out there or design that would allow one to trailer in a screening system to classify soil manually or mechanized…and be affordable. I guess I have to look a little harder online for solutions that have already been made. If you have an idea, let me know!
