    I would love to have one myself, but can't justify the cost, much less afford one! This was probably a great deal less expensive than buying new.

    Here is a few pictures of the build, I have since raised the angle another 6-8" because some rocks and small twigs were hanging 20200923_160412.jpg 20200925_181020.jpg 20200927_110536.jpg 20200927_163801.jpg 20201003_194318.jpg

    Nice work, I have been brain storming on one of these for a while now, I made about 40 yards of awesome compost over the last year and have spent WAY too many hours pickin rocks and sticks the past few days.

    Before we built the new house in 2015 , I stripped off all the topsoil from a fairly big area and it has a lot of sticks and rocks mixed in . I also found a little gravel deposit on the property and used the little screener to take out the rocks and small sticks. Once everything dries out here I do plan on tackling the mountain of topsoil

    I also stripped a large area when I bought this place. The "hippies" that owned it before me for 50 years left 5 decades of plastic, broken glass, landscape trash all over the place in the 1/2 acre garden. I stripped all of that and set it aside to deal with later. Its later now, the property is coming along but even today, i'm burning old stumps, picking broken glass out of everything, still finding buried rugs, wire fence, plastic plant trays etc.
