Lake Erie Portable Screeners‘ Pitbull 2300P propane-powered screening plant handles a range of materials, including topsoil, mulch, gravel, stone and asphalt. Featuring a Zenith 1.6-liter, four-cylinder, 48-hp propane engine that can also be converted to natural gas, the screener can do any job its diesel-powered counterpart can, the company says. The 2300P is ideal for operation in confined spaces, such as buildings and mine shafts, Lake Erie adds. The plant features full hydraulic operation, a tubular-frame construction, a Torflex axle and a reversible shaker. The Pitbull 2300P is 8 ft., 4 1/2 in. wide, and its 20-ft.-long stacking conveyor adjusts hydraulically from as low as 7 ft., 6 in., up to 13 ft. to feed material directly into a dump truck or tri-axle trailer. In addition, the Pitbull 2300P conveyors are hydraulic rather than chain- or belt-driven, a feature that eliminates the risk of power loss and downtime due to broken chains or belts.
