A new dealer and three new customers for Revolver

Revolver Screening Systems not only has new representation for the State of Michigan but this spring has now three new RT508 portable trommels in operation in The Great Lake State.

S & S Equipment from Onstead, Mi is the latest addition to the ever expanding network of Revolver dealers. This family owned and operated company has for years built up a great reputation for the sale and supply of parts and service to the aggregate and topsoil industries and prides itself in its extensive parts inventory and after sales service facilities. They plan to not only sell the Revolver trommel line of plants but to establish themselves in the trommel rental market.

Landscape Source Corp, a landscape supply company from Macomb, just north of Detroit and Lake Leelanau Excavating from the Traverse City area, are the first owners in Michigan of new Revolver RT508 portable trommel screening plants. These add to the more than 150 Revolver trommels in service all across the North America continent in just a three year time frame.

Lake Leelanau Excavating, a father and son owned and operated excavation and topsoil supply company, located on the shores of Lake Michigan purchased a new RT508 equipped with the optional plant mounted overs conveyor and 60 hp Kubota diesel engine. They had been running a European built plant with a vibratory screen deck. After extensive research, they decided on the Revolver. The production in topsoil has been increased dramatically and, as an added bonus, they were able to process what they referred to as their “burn pile”. This was material that has accumulated over quite a number of years. A combination of wood waste and decomposed material that was now, after processing through the RT508, a salable compost type product.

Dave Soulliere from Landscape Source had been using a European manufactured trommel and decided to upgrade to the heavier, rugged North American built RT508, also equipped with the plant mounted overs conveyor and 60 hp Kubota. The difference, in his words, has been “astounding”.

Known as the “Northern Michigan Contractor” Mike Colleur of Colleur Contracting from Marquette in the upper peninsula of Michigan had been using a conventional vibratory screening plant to process his topsoil. As his frustration grew with slow production and constant re-handling of the material, he decided that a trommel screen was the answer and after considerable research decided on the Revolver RT508. The portability aspect along with the 5′ diameter drum and 36″ feeder were the key features that convinced him that the Revolver was the plant for him.
