Local Contractor Irwin Sand and Gravel supplies in Dongara WA, have been testing the new Flipscreen WL285 with astonishing results. Coupled to the Liugong 862 High Spec Loader the Flipscreen WL285 with its 2.85m3 capacity has provided rates of up to 240t per/h of screened gravel and 210t per/h of lime sand through a 40mm screen mesh.
