New Pitbull Propane-Powered Screener 

Lake Erie Portable Screeners introduces a propane-powered screener as a clean and cost-effective alternative to diesel power. The Pitbull 2300 Propane Screening Plant is one of the first of its kind, delivering maximum efficiency and high outputs with a wide range of materials, including topsoil, mulch, gravel, stone and asphalt. The machine’s low-emission propane components provide an alternative to diesel equipment affected by the the spike in prices caused by Tier 4 Final emission standards.

Pitbull propane powered screener“While we want to offer the market a low-emission, green product that performs with power, we recognized that the Tier 4 regulations on diesel engines were driving costs up. Our team looked for another solution,” said Stuart Foradora, Lake Erie Portable Screeners factory representative. “We built the Pitbull 2300 Propane with a cleaner burning engine that comes at very minimal additional cost. The screener has very low emissions and is still compact, portable and able to handle all the applications the Pitbull 2300 can — plus more.”

The Pitbull 2300P is almost the same machine as the Pitbull 2300, aside from the power source. Featuring a Zenith 1.6-liter, 4-cylinder, 48-horsepower propane engine that could also be easily converted to natural gas, it can do any job its diesel-powered counterpart can. The propane also results in a cleaner engine that’s easier to maintain, allowing it to run longer with fewer repairs. 

The extremely low emissions make the Pitbull 2300P ideal for operation in confined spaces, such as buildings and mine shafts, and eliminate the need to obtain special permits. The Pitbull 2300P also provides a significant return on investment by making it unnecessary to buy or rent expensive ventilation systems and masks that would be required to run a diesel model in a tight space. The propane engine is also quieter than most diesels.
