The 8" Hand Operated Sieve Shaker is the only sieve shaker specifically designed for portable use without AC power supply. Hand operated shakers from other sources are merely adapted from motor driven units without regard for discomforts of hand cranking or other needs of the field operator.
Cranking effort is minimized through the use of quality flange bearings at both shaft ends, and counterbalanced mechanism. The special removable crank is provided. Approximately one turn per sec. gives desired sieving action. Lightweight at only 43 lb (19.5kg), the unit also has recessed handles on sides for carrying. No special mounting hardware is required. Four oversized pliable rubber feet improve machine grip to work surface. The unit holds 8 full-height 8" (203mm) sieves and pan with sturdy painted steel case, and has 3-way sieving action and cover-clamping features.
