If you can scoop it, you can Flipscreen it...or so the saying goes. Well, it's true. Dig into its utilization, and you will see that a Flipscreen is widely used in multiple industries, from scrap in brazil, to waste in India, landscaping in Canada to topsoil in Australia, and everything in between. 

From big to small jobs, its time and space-saving, strength in logistics and mobility, and grade adaptation make it an indispensable tool. The real opportunities for contractors come in its ability to process materials on-site and to be able to reuse that cleaned soil, making it much cheaper to take the leftover waste material to the dump. To paint a picture, lets present this as a "day in the life", scenario.
