Hey Grinder Guy, why are Star Screens so expensive? So what does this does this mean? • The same Star Deck can produce a range of sizes of materials without changing anything but the speed of the shafts. Turn a knob, touch the touch screen and you magically change from 11/2-inch material to 1/4-inch material; • In production in the sizes under 1--inch, Star Screens can out produce Trommels easily 2:1, 3:1 or even 4:1 in wetter materials; • Wet materials are no problem for Star Screen because of the pliable Star, the speed of the shafts and the cleaning ability of the stars; • Plastic removal is much more efficient on a Star Screen because of the material floating on top of the Star Deck and the stepped drop from the deck to the Discharge Conveyor; • Product quality is much better because of the range of adjustability in the product size because of the Star Shafts. Most Star Decks have multiple drives so you are able to run the shafts at different speeds and create the perfect end product;

• Star Decks can be electric or diesel and much more energy efficient using as little as 1.5 gallons per hour; and • Stars can be sized for each application. Larger Stars for removing 6 or 8inch wood to small stars for producing 1/4-inch topdressing. But they are not perfect. • Star Screens cannot be used for aggregate; • Star Screens cannot be used for heavy soils; and • Star Screens cannot be used as a scalping deck. Those applications are for Trommel Screens or Deck Screens. So what should you look for in a Star Screen? If you are like most users, screening compost, soil blends or mulch, choose the following — • Choose Electric over Hydraulic. Electric motors give you much more rpm to turn the shafts and a wider range of product sizing; • Choose smaller stars. A star in the 4 or 5 inch range will give you a beautiful 1/2-inch product and be able to screen even finer. Stars larger than that will not be able to make much finer than 3/4-inch material efficiently.

• Choose a Star Deck with a cleaning system so wet materials will not be an issue; and • Size the screen for your support and production equipment. Who cares if the Star Screen can screen 500 yards per hour if the support equipment can only handle 250 yards per hour? Because of the ability to screen multiple materials and multiple sizes with the same unit, the Star Screens have become a much more useful tool than the Trommel Screen. Review your products and your raw materials. If they meet the conditions above, give the Star Screen a try. One third of the screening time, one third of the

loader time, one third of the manpower time, less fuel reduces the initial capital investment considerably while achieving product perfection and happy customers.

Apparently, you have been pricing screening equipment. I assume you are comparing Star Screens to Deck Screens or Trommel Screens? What if the Star Screen could produce double, triple or quadruple the production? Then what would you say? I sell both Trommel Screens and Star Screens, so let’s take a closer look. Star Screens contain many more parts and much more technology than a Drum that rotates. The stars, made of rubber or Urethane, can number over 1000 per machine. With a hole in the center of the star, they are slid onto a shaft and rotate continuously all in the same direction. Materials are dropped on top of the rotating shafts and the finer product falls between the stars to a waiting conveyor or onto the ground. The spacing between the stars on each shaft creates the actual product size. By turning the shafts faster, material has less time to drop between the stars, thus giving a finer product size. Conversely, the slower the shafts turn, the larger the product size

Flex-Mat 3 tackles tough conditions Recycle plant increases monthly sellable product by 4,000 tons After beginning his ca-

reer in construction and demolition (C&D), Tim Lipsmeyer and a partner bought a small mobile re-

cycle plant in 1997 to produce recycled asphalt and concrete. Southern Crushing, a Mississippi

based operation, now produces 1/2-inch minus recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) used for road proj-

Available for flat surface and tensioned screen decks, it allows producers to increase screen open area, create more screening action with the vibrating wires and eliminate blinding and pegging problems to achieve more throughput of spec material. ects in Mississippi, Tennessee and Arkansas. Depending on the volume of fines in the material being screened, the plant can produce upwards of 140 tph. However, it had been experiencing blinding and pegging of its 1/2-inch steel woven wire due to the sticky nature of the recycled asphalt. Many days, Lipsmeyer was being forced to shut down for 30 minutes every two hours to clean the screen media that was blinding up to six inches deep. Each day, losing two hours of pro-

duction time was costing the operation over 200 tons of potentially sellable material. So, Lipsmeyer turned to Major Wire’s Flex-Mat® 3 Tensioned screen cloth to eliminate the blinding problem and increase his potential monthly sellable product by at least 4,000 tons. “We had been offered a job in northeast Arkansas requiring that we screen asphalt in the winter, which is a nightmare because the wet asphalt

The year long grind at Lanoha Nurseries by Randy Happel, Two Rivers Marketing, Des Moines, Iowa

Lahona's Vermeer TG7000 stays busy most days grinding wood waste material. nies in the Midwest. Now situated on a picturesque expanse some 10 miles southwest of their original site, the business is located in an area with Omaha’s sprawling southwestern suburbs encroaching all around. The company’s success as a leading commercial and residential landscaping entity can be attributed to a lot of sweat, hard work and Lanoha’s vision. Growth has come largely through expansion. In addition to commercial and residential landscape

construction, Lanoha Nurseries also has several other divisions including one devoted to commercial property maintenance and another to commercial property development. They have a nursery division with a huge retail garden center featuring more than 10,000-square-feet of inside greenhouse growing space for annuals, perennials and shrubs. Additionally they have an irrigation division; a wood recycling and mulch processing segment and a composting division as well. The company supports a full time, active workforce of more than 300. Their staff includes experienced horticulturists, gardeners, certified arborists and a collection of the most accomplished and creative landscape architects and designers found anywhere in the nation. Seasonal business, non-seasonal company Once the spring and summer workload subsides, with fall fertilization winding down and equipment maintenance and winterization chores beginning, most Midwest based landscaping companies take a well deserved respite. Not so, for Lanoha Nurseries however, where diversification has kept this dynamic, innovative landscaping leader operational — regardless of the season. “Landscaping is often considered a seasonal industry, but Lanoha Nurseries is definitely not a seasonal company,” says Chris Lanoha, vice president of the family owned and operated Lanoha Nurseries. “Certainly, with landscaping construction and maintenance as the core of our business, the spring and summer months are the most hectic. Just the same, there are different facets to our company that keep us busy throughout the year. One of the most consistent year round areas of our business has been our wood recycling and landscape mulch production division.” “The volume of mulch we were using each year, just for our own needs, justified the expense for us to establish our own wood recycling and mulch division,” Lanoha says. “We started the recycling division seven years ago and it has grown steadily ever

During a demonstration at the WHEN Recycling Expo in York, PA, attendees were able to see the ease with which the TG7000 can turn wood waste material into marketable mulch or biomass.

Lanoha 7


With a pickup truck, a couple of lawnmowers and a few well used landscaping tools, Dave Lanoha started Lanoha Nurseries, headquartered in Omaha, NE, in 1974 on a modest 10 acre plot of land that at the time was considered the western edge of city. As Omaha grew, so did Lanoha Nurseries. Just like the resilient pioneers that settled this vast, gently rolling agricultural rich frontier, Lanoha, too, kept moving west. Nearly four decades later, Lanoha Nurseries has grown to become one of the largest landscape compa-


from 6

since. It’s also an area of our business, among others, that remains fully operational year round.” To meet the increasing activity within the recycling division, and produce the additional amount of landscaping mulch the company uses each year, Lanoha purchased a Vermeer® TG7000 tub grinder in 2011. According to Lanoha, the addition of the grinder to the company’s extensive fleet of equipment has allowed the nursery to control all raw material inputs while providing a much valued outlet for locals to dispose of waste wood. “Setting up a recycling and wood processing division was uncharted territory for us at the time,” Lanoha says. “It was risky, but we did a lot of research and worked really hard. One of the biggest factors that prompted us to make this significant of an investment was that we had become the No. 1 mulch consumer in the state of Nebraska. I was frustrated with the inability to control the quality and quantity of mulch shipments. Availability was always a concern.” While many wood recycling and mulch production facilities are challenged with securing reliable and consistent raw materials, Lanoha has been fortunate. “For years we had people asking us if they could bring waste wood here, but at the time we didn’t have a use for it,” Lanoha says. “Once we got into organic recycling and mulch production, things fell into place. Word that we were accepting wood waste quickly spread. We also reached out to tree care companies and began communicating with customers that we were always on the lookout for quality waste wood. Perhaps it’s due to our size and needs, but sourcing wood hasn’t been a big issue for us … yet. “We’re the only disposal site in the area that doesn’t charge tipping fees, which puts us at an advantage. We’ve discovered there are a lot of different sources out there. We found that we needed to get creative and dig a little to uncover them. In our case, the result has been a win win situation for the community, local tree care professionals, and our company combined.” Quality control Lanoha admits there are challenges that come along with operating a wood waste disposal site —

The TG7000 like the one at Lahona's Nurseries, is able to grind large trees and stumps as well as smaller wood waste items most notably those few who are looking for a place to discard just about anything and everything. As a result, the company has stringent quality control measures in place for mulch production. “Our product is extremely clean,” Lanoha says. “We have a strict formula for blending different types of wood to produce the best mulch product offerings possible. Compared to some mulch operations, ours may be a little smaller, but we have the capabilities and equipment to produce a lot of product. The


An operator uses a Komatsu WA250 loader to fill Lahona's TG5000 grinder with shredded mulch to regrind the material for landscaping.

TG7000 grinder is very efficient, has great capacity and turns out a consistent product.” Lanoha has not aggressively pursued the wholesale mulch market — largely because of the volume of mulch required for its own needs — but they have established relationships with a handful of wholesale mulch customers. This is an arrangement that helps generate additional revenue, and offset a portion of production and operational costs. Self-sustaining Over the years, Lanoha Nurseries has acquired more than 1400 acres of rich, fertile Nebraska, land dedicated to growing nursery stock. Raising their own trees and shrubs gives Lanoha confidence that his customers are receiving quality, hardy plantings that will not only survive, but also will thrive, in the harsh Midwest climate of extremes. Yet, there can also be drawbacks, as the company experienced during the economic downturn. “One of the biggest challenges with raising your own trees is forecasting needs so many years in advance,” Lanoha says. “We have to look six to seven years ahead, and a lot of things can happen in that amount of time, especially with the economy. We got hit pretty hard during the economic downturn. It forced us to cut some ash and birch that were at the prime growth stage for replanting, but we didn’t have a place for them. We were able to use all the wood in a landscape mulch application, so it certainly didn’t go to waste. It’s rare when it happens, but as with any business, there are situations you can’t always predict or control. The good news is that the trees were put to good use.” The volume of landscaping mulch required by the nursery each year has reached a point where Lanoha’s wood processing and recycling crews try to keep the company’s hungry Vermeer grinder fed every day, all year round. They’re already looking ahead to next spring. “The Vermeer grinder gets a fairly grueling workout all winter long,” Lanoha says. “We’re fortunate having a facility with enough area that we can grind and stockpile the vast majority of our landscaping mulch needs for the next season during the prior winter.”

sticks so badly,” states Lipsmeyer, owner of Southern Crushing. “I had seen advertisements for Flex-Mat 3, so I decided to give it a chance. In spite of my skepticism, Flex-Mat 3 was the first product that did what it said it would.” Southern Crushing employs a portable Eagle 500-05 crusher and two 4-foot x 14-foot double deck Cedarapids tensioned screen boxes. In spec material is screened through by the bottom decks and the oversized product is recirculated back through the crusher. Previously, when there was precipitation of any kind, the screen media would blind and the operation couldn’t run. So, Lipsmeyer first tried stainless steel slotted screen media on the bottom deck of one screen to eliminate the problem. But, it caused another problem, allowing oversized product to fall through, resulting in out of spec product stockpiles. He was forced to switch back to square woven wire and deal with the blinding or use 3/16-inch wire openings. Major Wire Industries Limited’s FlexMat 3 High Performance, Self-Cleaning Screen Media provided a better solution. Available for flat surface and tensioned screen decks, it allows producers to increase screen open area, create more screening action with the vibrating wires and eliminate blinding and pegging problems to achieve more throughput of spec material. Its distinctive lime green polyurethane strips bond individual wires, and allow them to vibrate independently at different frequencies. With more screening action,

more properly sized material falls through instead of sticking to the wire. “Now, we use Flex-Mat 3 Tensioned panels on the bottom deck of one screen with a 1/2-inch opening,” Lipsmeyer stated. “We are able to produce spec RAP and clean out fines from crushed concrete no matter how wet it is. We can even screen in a complete downpour.” Since purchasing Flex-Mat 3 from Major Wire, Southern Crushing has screened more than 40,000 tons over the original panels — which are still operational and being used today. The operation even ran through winter, only stopping when the snow fall got so heavy that it compromised the belts and froze up the screen box. When asked about the future relationship between Southern Crushing and Major Wire, Lipsmeyer replied, “I very seldom buy anything that works like it says it will. With this kind of success, Flex-Mat 3 will definitely be a part of Southern Crushing’s future.” For more information, contact Tim Lipsmeyer at 901-409-1224, e-mail or visit

EarthScape, Inc. enters the third generation of wholesale mulch production


by Jon M. Casey

Pick your color! Mulch from Earthscape comes in various colors including red, black, brown, and shades of natural wood like that from the Hemlock mill. As you turn off of The Perry Highway (PA state highway 19 near Mercer, PA) and onto the site of EarthScape, Inc. a wholesale mulch production facility, it is immediately clear that turning saw mill wood waste into a variety of natural and colored mulch products, is the primary objective. Since the mid1970’s the Hoobler family has been grinding and coloring mulch at this location, with products destined for landscapers and garden centers in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. Customers have come to appreciate EarthScape’s reputation for high quality mulch products. That has helped the business grow from Philip Hoobler’s one man operation to what it has become today, a regional supplier with more than a dozen trucks on the road. “We are busy delivering material from Memorial Day; pretty much right up until frost,” says David Hoobler VP, who is Philip’s son and father of Evan Hoobler, president of Earthscape, Inc. “The bulk of our material goes out from April through July. We aren’t open Memorial Weekend or July 4th, but the rest of that time, this place is hopping! We will move more than 60,000-cubic-yards of material in a season.” Hoobler says the business began when Philip, who is now semi-retired at 80 years of age, began grinding sawmill waste with a Haybuster™ Tub Grinder as a way to make mulch for a few local customers. Hoobler and his brother Neil formed EarthScape, Inc. and purchased the business from their father in 2001. From there, the business continued to grow and they acquired a Vermeer TG400 tub grinder to increase production throughout the season. “We take in fresh sawmill waste all year long as it is available from the mills,” he says. “We grind it and stockpile it over the winter, as we prepare for the spring sales.” “My brother sold his portion of the business in 2010 and my son Evan became president and part owner of the business,” said David. “We realized that colored mulch products were what the marketplace was demanding, so we added screening, coloring and stacking equipment to meet that demand. Currently, EarthScape uses Amerimulch and Nature’s Reflections lines of colorants.” For more information on EarthScape Mulch products, contact them at 724376-2311 or via e-mail at Three generations of Hooblers are involved in Earthscape Mulch.

V isiting the WHEN Expo North, 2012


by Steve Wagner

Kleeman's MOBICAT MC110Z welcomed visitors as they “We wanted to look at some of the newer equipment out in the market,” Robert DeLillo told WHEN at the WHEN Recycling Expo North during the last week of October. “We’re in the wood products business down there in Elk County (Saint Mary’s PA). We do a lot of grinding and chipping. Just want to look at some newer technology out there, specifically more innovative ways to color mulch.” DeLillo said that his business is willing to travel up to 150 miles to do business. Beyond that, he says, distance becomes unprofitable. This year’s WHEN Expo North at the Monroe County Fairgrounds in Henrietta NY, began on a chilly and rainy day and ended with 80 degree temperatures. Despite predictions of a storm, nicknamed The Frankenstorm due to hit the following week, the weather was perfect for watching recycling equipment do what it does — recycling wood, metal, concrete and asphalt; screening, crushing, mulching, shredding and pulverizing. There is something fascinating, almost hypnotic, about viewing these processes. Mechanical dominance has captured the interest of many of us since we were kids. Accordingly, it has not abandoned us in adulthood. We continue to stand and watch, only now the equipment is much more sophisticated than, say, the rudimentary steam shovel of the 1940s and ‘50s. “I remember when a pipeline came across my grandfather’s farm,” recalls Bruce Button, Lee Publications vice president and general manager. “They had this mammoth machine that had a huge

It dug a trench 6-feet wide and 10-feet deep. Then they brought in those pieces of pipe, welded them in place, dropped them in, and then they had to back fill.” Exhibitors Companies like Vermeer, ALLU, Hammel New York, Sandvik, and a host of others exhibiting at this year’s Expo, focused on equipment that will serve their client base, best. Many products are built to multitask while others accommodate multi-tasking attachments. For example, Ron Sladey of Moley Magnetics, Lockport, NY said that his company is primarily an excavator attachment company. “We really focus much of our sales effort on our shears and our magnets. That’s kind of where we got started. Since then we’ve gotten into grapples, crushers and pulverizers.” Moley’s clients are primarily in the demolition industry, the scrap industry and the railroads. Of the HHS 200R shear on display in the Moley exhibit, Sladey explains that “this is a mobile hydraulic shear. It is the second smallest of the mobile hydraulic shears that we sell. We offer seven Ron Slaby, sales and marketing manager for Moley sizes, from a 1500-pound shear to a 21,000-pound Magnetics, Inc. (R), talks with a prospect about one of model.

beams or whatever type metal they are processing.” Sladey said that his most distant client is in Panama. He sold a unit to that customer in the spring of 2012. Next year, he said that Moley hopes to sell 25 of these shears throughout the nation. Near the Moley Shear, a huge round magnet on floor, reminds passersby of the James Bond movie where the electro-magnet dropped by helicopter to pick up a car by its roof, fly it out to sea and drop it in the ocean. “It’s actually a very unique product,” Sladey says. “This specific magnet doesn’t run off a generator, which typically they do. This will run off the batteries of the vehicle it’s attached to. It saves people a considerable amount of money and reduces the amount of maintenance that has to be done to the product. Its longevity is fantastic.” A show for everyone What brings exhibitors and attendees to an Expo like this? “With this type of equipment and the price it goes for, most buyers are going to want to see this thing demonstrated,” says Button. “They want to see more than one machine and see a comparison of the machines. So they can see a lot of machines and comparisons in one place. They can ask their questions while they’re right here. It saves them a lot of time.” “You might have somebody who comes here who is involved with a wood grinder or a shredder,” he adds. “Some attendees are involved with multiple industries. It becomes a co-op thing where this guy invites a bunch of his customers, and they all get to see everybody’s equipment.” Button also used the word ‘torque’ after watching the HAMMEL Red Giant shred a junked car that had burned. “For that type of machine, it’s a safety thing,” he said. “You can operate one of those in an urban area. If you’re demolishing a building, you can take brick, concrete, or structural steel, and put it all in that machine. It is actually turning at a very slow RPM, but very high torque. It will shear and crush anything that’s put into it. Some machines are very high speed and just smash things up, and cannot be used in a really tight urban environment.” To those watching a video presentation of tree tops being lopped off at the Enterprising Europa exhibit, Roland Jarl explains that “this is a tree cutting operation. Here, they are cutting with an excavator rather than doing it manually or with bucket lifts. This is an attachment that goes on the end of an excavator. It is very innovative, cutting edge, you might say. This is a new product for us.” “We haven’t imported it yet, he continued. “We are going to bring it into North America next year. The company is working on tweaking a couple of things. Customers seem to want a few little things different from what you see on this video. This would be used by municipalities for road maintenance, mainly.” For more information on future WHEN Expos, visit the Lee Publications, Inc. website at
