Lake Erie Portable Screeners recently teamed with New York-based rental company Supply Wagon Rentals to provide free demonstrations of the Pitbull 2300 commercial-grade portable screener.  

The Pitbull 2300’s versatile screens can process topsoil, gravel, mulch and other quality materials.


The Pitbull 2300’s screens can be easily changed to process up to three sizes of quality materials.


Bob Varin, owner of Supply Wagon Rentals, organized the three-day event to show his client base the Pitbull 2300’s ability to efficiently and effectively screen topsoil, rock and other quality materials. “I had another soil screener that didn’t compare to the Pitbull,” he said. “It’s very easy to operate, the maintenance is simple, and it’s very easy to transport,” he added.

The event gave more than 100 contractors, landscapers and other industry professionals an opportunity to screen materials with the Pitbull 2300. Varin supplied the topsoil for the demonstration.

Lance Conley, Pitbull 2300 dealer and master product distributor, said, “The owner of Supply Wagon was able to showcase his rentals, and everyone had a chance to use the Pitbull. We focused on the quality of material and made 3/4-inch topsoil. Bob sold it before the demonstration was over.” 

The event also demonstrated the durability and portability of the Pitbull 2300. “The Pitbull 2300 stands up to the day-to-day use by contractors,” Varin said.

Lake Erie Portable Screeners manufactures the Pitbull 2300 with high-quality, structural tube steel, which reduces noise and vibration and minimizes the risk of structural failure common in C-channel frames. With its power-assisted hydraulic axle and park jack that users can operate from the control panel, the Pitbull 2300 is also easy to transport. “Within five minutes, we can pick it up and move to a different location, hit all the grease fittings, set up and be ready to go. That’s a huge benefit for the rental industry,” Varin said. “The Pitbull 2300 takes less than 30 minutes to set up, while competitor units I’ve used can take more than four hours.”

The Pitbull 2300’s upper and lower screening decks feature versatile screens that can be changed in less than 30 minutes and enable users to process up to three sizes of material. Users can screen a variety of materials, including topsoil, gravel and mulch, which helps increase profitability and return on investment. In addition, they can repurpose material instead of having to purchase new quality material.

Lake Erie Portable Screeners often offers free demonstrations of its Pitbull 2300. In addition to seeing how the unit operates, attendees learn how easy and inexpensive it is to maintain.

“We were very pleased with the results. We got machinery rentals from it. We screened a lot of soil and once it’s all sold, it will cover the cost of the event,” Varin said. “A lot of people were interested in renting a Pitbull, so I definitely think carrying Pitbull would be a benefit to my company and customers.”
