    Looking for a box screen like a Thomas ProTough 300 or a 400 or an EZ Sceen machine.

    Why don't you have your welder or local fabricating shop build you one.Those EZ screens are nice but there's a lot of mark up on them.I had an A frame setup homemade,similiar to EZ screen that I used for about 10 years until the rot on it was so bad my welder didn't want to patch it anymore.He told me he could build me a new, better built one for about $1,500-$2,000,including the steel.I was going with that until last Spring when an old Royer shredder was almost given to me.I had to buy a new $2,500 belt, but after that it's been running fantastic. Makes a beautiful aerated fluffy product.

    Your right they are marked way up, thats why I was looking for a used one. What type of mechanism did you use to drive the screen on your home made one, or was it just a stationary unit? I like it to be portable so I can take it to jobs.
