    Is that the dairy with the sand recover system that you were at awhile back? From the vapor coming off i'd say the compost was still toasty when you started screening it.

    Embed is disabled or something. Used to work, but hasn't for awhile.

    What's the compost process that's coming off of? How old is that material? What are you screening to?

    If we ever get our screen up and fully running I'll post a picture of our setup.

    I'm curious as a fellow composter

    Screen to 3/8 minus. Material has been turned 3 times this will be the fourth.

    I'm impressed by how fast material is moving through the screen.

    Star screens are fast. Buy one if your serious about screening large quantities of wet material.
