Save time & increase profits with a Flipscreen!

Flipscreen, a new landscaping profit center!

Flipscreen screening buckets can be found in many aspects of the Landscaping Industry. It is common for Landscape contractors to use Flipscreen screen buckets for site works such as the removal of sod/turf successfully by screening out the topsoil and therefore removing only a small amount of vegetation. Create a clean slate with maximum debris out at low vegetation cost! Flipscreen, the worlds best screening bucket, will allow you to handle the material one time, rather than multiple times, saving on tip fees, and saving on time.

Landscaping contractors are also able to remove sticks, stumps, and other debris from a site giving you a clean slate to work with. Many grades of gravel and Gabion rocks can be achieved by changing the meshes, which takes under 5 minutes without tools. 

Another application for Flipscreen screening attachments in the landscaping industry is in landscape supply yards, where incoming soil can be screened into a salable product, decomposed green waste can be screened into valuable compost, etc. 

Turn a pile like this.

Into 3 different size material piles. 1 operator, 1 hour, 1 screen change which will take under 5 minutes. 

Screen wherever you want. 

Fill a truck with topsoil. 

Dump the oversize somewhere else. 

Lay topsoil easily. 

By screening on the move. 

The overs are left behind to use for paving or whatever you want. 


Increase profits with a Flipscreen

Here’s how…

  • Reduced dumping/hauling costs
  • Profitable return on a piece of snow removal equipment not otherwise in regular summer use
  • Compost; highest single profit margin component of annual sales
  • Enhanced grass seed and plant growth with high organic soils
  • Retail sales magnet (freshly screed, high organic compost at attractive retail pricing).
  • Greatly reduced labor cost when using “freshly” screed topsoil in seed areas. (We are certain that the labor savings equals the soil cost by using fresh not compacted soil).
  • Environmentally friendly addition to your brand
  • Cost competitiveness over the competition
  • On large job sites, where roots and other contaminants are present, Flipscreen can save a fortune by separating debris from organics rather than hauling & replacing.
  • Save time by handling material once. There is also no need to haul the large oversize, just screen it out on-site. 
  • Blend materials with ease!
  • Screening plants take up too much real-estate on job sites. Also, a big job to move on and off. A logistical nightmare compared to a Flipscreen.

Case Example 1:

Having leveled an acre across the road from our main operation, I began a program of dumping the returning comingled landscape material in rows for organics and piles for aggregates.

The profit opportunity that many landscapers may be missing is the cost of either tipping fees or travel costs to dump material that can and should be recycled. I have used this to pay for land, equipment, and labor that adds nearly a 2% increase in annual sales and a 10% increase in net profit.

I am charging my time with equipment to the process at $100/hour and maintaining a 90% profit margin on the result without considering the savings in hauling and dumping elsewhere.

It happens that your “Flipscreen” is an excellent separator. Thus my aggregate piles, most of which include sand get screened onto the organics, thus adding sand which is the highest cost component of composting. The remaining aggregates are used to either fill more land, crushed for sub base use or building a road to the remaining 40 acres we own to eventually create residential lot sales.

By incorporating the sand and organics mixture, which includes grass for nitrogen, wood chips from our local tree service company for carbon, sod and plant matter I have gotten a 20%-25% organic content soil which grows grass seed better than anything we have used in the past thirty-five years. The rows are ready for screening in two years with minimal turning with either a 130h.p. Wheel loader of the New Holland W80 loader that I use with the Flipscreen.

As a rule, I am making over 20 yards per hour with average moisture conditions. The more sand and the more dry days the closer it gets to 35yds/hour. I have used a five-year amortization schedule on the U45; attached a charge of $2 / yard of soil. Making 2000 yards per year, which is our average use/sales volume, I am easily paying for the Flipscreen equipment in full and feel that its actual useful life might be twenty years, certainly not five.

Having used this process for two full years, I feel fairly confident that I can continue with only regular lubrication as maintenance. My only failure is breaking/bending one screen clamp, repaired in ten minutes.

This technology is what it is said to be in engineering and functional terms but also adds the potential to change the way a landscape operation does business. It improves profitability and is a profit center, not an expense.

  • Again purchasing in gravels for $14 to $20 per ton screened.
  • You can purchase bulk for $7 and screen it yourself and sell for $14 to $35 per ton.
  • Blending made more simple by filling ½ bucket of compost and ½ bucket of topsoil, then screen the blended material very fast.
  • Screening product bunkers after heavy rain to freshen up the saleable product for the buyers.

Case Example 2:

Flipscreen case study conducted by Mike Kintner, with an S45 on a building site, reclaiming site material for various uses. He screened 300 tons in 2.5 hours. 100 tons of 2″ plus rocks. And 200 tons of 2″ minus topsoil. 

Results: 42 tons of Topsoil 3/4″ and less $1,680 at $40 per ton. 190 Ton Screened Clean Fill Dirt 2″ and less $2,280 at $12 per Ton and 68 Ton of 2″ and larger material (rocks) $1,020 at $15 per Ton. Processed 300 tons in 2.5 Hours. Today Material Resale Value $4,980
