AES-78 / SLG78VF-5
Material / Soil Screener - 78VF-5 is cost effective and has an efficient design. Not a lot of fancy bells and whistles on this Screener. What you will find is a machine with the ability to screen all types of material in all types of conditions. The 78VF-5 is a durable, high output, portable screener with a simple no maintenance design that is priced well below the competition.
Produces between 15 and 35 yards of material per hour. Hourly production can vary depending upon several factors. Number and size of machines feeding the screener, material moisture content, mesh size, distance from the pile to the screener, and operators ability.
Multi Position Screen Deck
When you want the material to move slowly across the mesh you then can bring the screen deck into the 30 degree position.
30 Degree Position
When screening topsoil and gravel with average
moisture levels you can set the screen deck slope at
35 to 40 degrees for the best production and efficiency.
This works best for screening products like sand.
35 to 40 Degree Position
Adjust the screen deck up to 45 degrees for screening
the most difficult high moisture materials that plug a
standard 22 degree slope screener.
45 Degree Position
How To Position the Screen Deck
Altering the deck slope is quick and easy. Loosen six bolts
on each side, position the screen deck to the desired position and retighten the bolts. The process takes less than 5 minutes start to finish.
Forward Opening Feeder
Feeding a screener quickly is the secret sauce to efficiency and bigger production. We have designed the SLG 78VF-5 with not only a feed deflector but a deflector system that opens up to allow oversize material to flow through. Our feed deflector design allow the operator dump material quickly, guiding it to the top of the screen deck to begin the screening process. No other design offers this feature.
Cantilevered Quad Spring Suspension
Along with our tilting screen deck settings the operator also has the ability to manipulate the deck slope with the bucket while feeding the screener. Flattening the deck slope by 10 degrees with the bucket allows the operator to control flow during the screening process, giving better production and higher efficiency.
The 78VF-5 is a “Maintenance Free” portable vibratory screener. We mount our sealed 3000 rpm (110 volt) vibrator, delivering 700lbs of thump to the underside of our screen deck.
Mounting the vibrator in the center of the deck 30% down from the top gives maximum vibratory action where it is most needed. The vibratory mounting plate has been design to hold and protect the vib pack from falling debris.
Screener Low Maintenance Design
Screeners are like a forklift. They do not get used all day everyday so maintenance is often an after thought. That is why SLG 78VF series screeners are so popular. SLG screeners Low to no maintenance design uses a shielded from the environment 110 volt dual eccentric vibratory motor that mounts to the underside of the screen deck protected by 3/8” steel plate. There is no engine burning fuel, or in need of air filters or an oil change. The suspension system only has 4 greasable pivot points so servicing only takes a couple of minutes.
There is no other screener in the industry that offers the versatility of the SLG 78VF-5. It will not only out perform any screener in its class, but with a foot print of only 4ft x 8ft it can operate in place that a conventional screener with a hitch and wheel will not fit.
The 78VF-5 comes with forklift pockets for moving the screener.
For machines with more lift capacity we offer bucket lift extensions that allow the screener to be picked up and transported with the machines bucket.

Transport Tie Downs
Laser cut and reinforced two chain tie down chain points to each side of the screener to speed up the process when chaining down the screener for transport.
78 Riser Box
The SLG 78VF-5 can be fitted with our riser box to elevate the screener 18 inches. This allows for 50% more storage capacity for both the finished products and overs. The riser box works well when using high reach skidtseers and larger excavators to feed the screener. The riser box can be removed in less that 2 minutes by releasing the tension on the two 4” nylon straps securing the screener to the riser. The SLG 78 Riser Box costs $800.
