We hear it all the time, how so many companies are frustrated with the results and wasted time that a grizzly produces. The amount of driving back and forth that your carriers are doing on-site. It doesn't make sense that material needs to be handled so many times to get it into a truck to cart away. Lumber jacks upgraded their tools many years ago, transforming from an axe to a chainsaw.

For some people, their passion truly does become their work, and that’s when the magic happens. And that’s just the case for Sam Turnbull, CEO of Flipscreen. Engineering and Innovation have been at the core of his passions for many years which ultimately lead to him creating the machine which won him the title of inventor of the year. An even greater fete though is when an award-winning invention keeps being improved upon, year on year. The Flipscreen is a screening bucket, which is nothing new, however, there is nothing conventional to be found when digging deep into the Flipscreens mechanics and comparing it to other screening buckets on the market.
