ALLU Group Inc. has introduced the new DL Screening buckets designed specifically for use with compact base machines such as mini excavators, small wheel loaders, skid steers and backhoes. One bucket allows you to change screen sizes ranging from 5/8 inch, 1 ¼ inches and 2 inches just by changing out the screen and hammers. The DL Screening bucket is the perfect tool for landscapers and is engineered to screen, mix, aerate and load top soil, peat and compost. The core of the new DL Screening bucket is the unique top screen where the screening hammers spin between the screen comb. This design makes the buckets clog-free, ensuring good production and throughput even with wet materials. Additionally, the new DL Screening bucket doesn’t require a case drain line for operation making the bucket as simple as attach and start screening.
To ensure maximum performance and durability, the bucket’s frame was designed and modeled using finite element analysis (FEA) engineering. The material weight is carried by the top screen comb so the drums and bearings have less impact under the load. The screening blades and top screen comb are changeable when worn or when changing size adjustments, which helps keep operating costs low.
The buckets are available in three models—the DL 2-09, DL 2-12 and DL 2-17. The DL 2-09 is the smallest of the series and is recommended for use with mini excavators weighing 8,800-26,000 pounds and small wheel loaders weighing 4,400-17,600 pounds. The bucket is 43 inches wide, 35 inches high and 37 inches deep and weighs 947 pounds.
The DL 2-12 bucket is recommended for compact excavators weighing 15,400-26,000 pounds and for small wheel loaders weighing 6,600-17,600 pounds. The bucket is 56 inches wide, 35 inches high and 37 inches deep and weighs 1,190 pounds.
The DL 2-17 bucket is the largest bucket in the series and is recommended for use with compact excavators weighing 19,800-26,000 pounds and for small wheel loaders weighing 8,800-17,600 pounds. The bucket is 74 inches wide, 35 inches high and 37 inches deep and weighs 1,532 pounds.
