What is a Screening Bucket?

A screening bucket can be attached to excavators, wheel loaders, backhoe-loaders or skid steers (ranging from 1 to above 40 tonnes).  It is hydraulically driven, easy to use and versatile. 

A screening bucket features a number of screening blades made up in different configurations (usually from 15-75mm spacing) to allow different particle sizes (from 0-70mm) of screened material depending on the requirements of the job.

Screening buckets are used for the primary selection, screening and separation of natural materials, both before and after the crushing phase.  Screening buckets are multifunctional tools ideal for separating materials such as top soil, demolition and construction waste, turf, roots and compost.

Typical screening applications include: 

  • Screening Topsoil: preparing topsoil for projects such as landscaping, sports fields and large gardens.
  • Padding and Backfilling: screening excavated materials for reuse padding pipeline and cables.
  • Composting: mixing and aerating materials to create high nutritional soil
  • Industrial Applications: screening and separating raw materials, even when wet and lumpy
  • Recycling: separating fines from recyclable material, for example, screening construction waste before crushing relevant materials for reuse
  • Screening Peat: – stones, stumps and roots can be screening out to process light material

Often used in conjunction with a crushing bucket, screening buckets can help to reduce crushing times by up to 60%, allowing you to salvage materials suited to the type of job being carried out and to manage and reuse them in the best way possible.
