i want to build a dirt sifter. what or how do u decide how steep it can be? i want to be able to dump my bucket ok-and i will have to allow for my teeth sticking out from it.
the reason i want to do this is because i need clean dirt to fix lots of bad spots all over my property-and i have several stockpiled piles of dirt with lots of to big of rocks to bury at my fill places. i hate to waste my dirt. ever since i seen a fella in new finnland build one out of pretty much nothing on u-tube--my mind has been thinking and spinning. my wife keeps telling to waste this dirt and get the free dirt off my cousin, but what he wants to give has lots of rocks in it too. and now we have this dump trailer-i need this sifter.
i already have gathered up my legs for it-and i want to set springs on with a gas motor to shake it. or i suppose it could just be set up like a grizzly--but i don't think my little tractor is gonna have enough height for the dirt and rocks to fall correctly.
how about the retired engineers helping me out a bit with the degrees of the pitch--for the dump height of my tractor. i would really appreciate this help-as i passed drafting in high school, but only by getting a D-back then. i was more interested in trucks and heavy equipmenth. ttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNmBMDfpJ5E now his dumping area is backwards from the way i want to dump my dirt-but for him it works-ok when he first built it was sliding off-but way slow-- right, so he just took his backhoe and dug the front in deeper.
there are lots of videos of dirt sifters on u-tube-and i love all of them. my boy is good with a set of plans-but lacks the vision to see things in his mind, like tractor stuff. i wanted him to build me a sleeve hitch for the 2520. he said bring me a set of plans--grr--its not his fault-really i don't think he's ever saw a sleeve hitch.
