GREAT OPPORTUNITY for someone needing their own source of professional-grade compost. Ideal for small to medium-size ag operations, commercial worm farmers, greenhouse growers, etc. -- anyone who can benefit from a dependable supply of thermophilically-produced (intensely-heated) compost.
<> TRAILER: equipment listed below is permanently mounted on a 24-foot tandem flatbed trailer with two 3500-lb axles, brakes, lights, and new tires, towable by most half-ton pickup trucks (weighs 4,700 lbs).
<> HOPPER: loadable by skidster/tractor bucket, with electric-driven paddle for mixing ingredients.
<> CONVEYOR: transports and loads ingredients from hopper into top of drum.
<> DRUM: octagon-shaped metal drum, turned at appropriate intervals to aerate/mix ingredients and maintain optimal temperatures.
<> FOUR ELECTRIC MOTORS (one requires 220): one for paddle in hopper; one for conveyor; one to turn octagon-shaped metal drum; one to pump air through compost.
<> TIMERS: to automatically start/stop rotation of drum and pumping of air at desired times without operator being present.
<> REAR DOORS: two hinged doors for testing/tending ingredients and for unloading.
<> CAPACITY: drum has about a 7-yard capacity if completely full; can produce about 4-5 yards of finished compost as often as every 2-3 weeks, depending on materials/process chosen and operator's intended use for the compost.

>>>>>> NOTE: I am also helping friends in the Pueblo area who are selling several pieces of commercial worm-farming equipment, such as a 30-foot flow-through worm/castings setup, soil pulverizer, screening machine, conveyor, etc. I can describe that equipment to you and refer you to those sellers if you wish.
