ALLU Group Inc.’s DL screening buckets are designed specifically for use with compact base machines such as mini-excavators, small wheel loaders, skid steers and backhoes. One bucket allows you to change screen sizes ranging from 5/8, 1 ¼ and 2 in. (1.6, 3.2 and 5 cm) just by changing out the screen and hammers. The DL screening bucket is the perfect tool for landscapers and is engineered to screen, mix, aerate and load top soil, peat and compost.

The core of the new DL screening bucket is the unique top screen where the screening hammers spin between the screen comb. This design makes the buckets clog-free, ensuring good production and throughput even with wet materials. Additionally, the new DL screening bucket doesn’t require a case drain line for operation making the bucket as simple as attach and start screening.

To ensure maximum performance and durability, the bucket’s frame was designed and modeled using finite element analysis (FEA) engineering. The material weight is carried by the top screen comb so the drums and bearings have less impact under the load. The screening blades and top screen comb are changeable when worn or when changing size adjustments, which helps keep operating costs low.

The buckets are available in three models — the DL 2-09, DL 2-12 and DL 2-17. The DL 2-09 is the smallest of the series and is recommended for use with mini-excavators weighing 8,800 to 26,000 lbs. (3,991 to 11,793 kg) and small wheel loaders weighing 4,400 to 17,600 lbs. (1,996 to 7,983 kg). The bucket is 43 in. wide, 35 in. high and 37 in. (109 by 89 by 94 cm) deep and weighs 947 lbs. (429.5 kg).

The DL 2-12 bucket is recommended for compact excavators weighing 15,400 to 26,000 lbs. (6,985 to 11,793 kg) and for small wheel loaders weighing 6,600 to 17,600 lbs. (2,993 to 7,983 kg). The bucket is 56 in. wide, 35 in. high and 37 in. (142 by 89 by 94 cm) deep and weighs 1,190 lbs. (540 kg).

The DL 2-17 bucket is the largest bucket in the series and is recommended for use with compact excavators weighing 19,800 to 26,000 lbs. (8,981 to 11,793 kg) and for small wheel loaders weighing 8,800 to 17,600 lbs. (3,991 to 7,983 kg). The bucket is 74 in. wide, 35 in. high and 37 in. (188 by 89 by 94 cm) deep and weighs 1,532 lbs. (695 kg).
