The new Pitbull 2300 Propane Screening Plant is one of the first of its kind, delivering maximum efficiency and high outputs with a wide range of materials, including topsoil, mulch, gravel, stone and asphalt.
The Pitbull 2300P is almost the same machine as the Pitbull 2300, aside from the power source. Featuring a Zenith 1.6-liter, 4-cylinder, 48-horsepower propane engine that could also be easily converted to natural gas.
The Pitbull 2300P’s 20-foot-long stacking conveyor adjusts hydraulically from as low as 7 feet, 6 inches, up to 13 feet to feed material directly into a dump truck or tri-axle trailer. The screening plant incorporates a loading apron that accepts up to three yards of material at a time depending on the feed rate. With its low dump height of 8 feet, 4-1/2 inches, operators do not need loading ramps; they can fill the hopper using typical construction equipment, such as skid steers, backhoes, loaders or excavators.
The portable screening plant also has an upper and lower screening deck, each with more than 41 square feet of screening area. The decks are each equipped with two sections of screen media. The company offers optional finger decks for the top deck in addition to a wide range of screen openings for processing all types of materials.
In addition to the adjustable stacking conveyor, the Pitbull 2300P features a hydraulically driven transfer conveyor that moves screened material from the hopper to the stacking conveyor. Hydraulic motors on the conveyors provide continuous power flow to achieve production rates up to 100 yards of clean, saleable material per hour.
