25 degree position
for moving material slowly

When you want the material to move slowly across the mesh you then can bring the screen deck into the 25 degree position. This works best for screening products like sand.

High moisture screening at upt 45 degrees. Maximum production and efficiency at 25 degrees

35 degree position
for maximum production

When screening gravel products the deck can be moved from the 22 degrees into the 35 degree position for maximum production and efficiency

45 degree position
to keep material moving

When screening soils with high moisture that can plug a 22 degree screen deck you have the ability to bring the DeSite SLG screen deck up to the 45 degree position to keep material from plugging the mesh during the screening process.

Changing the screen deck slope is quick and easy. The DeSite multi slope screen deck combines maximum production with maximum efficiency for every soil condition.

Bolts on each side of the screening machine lock the screen deck angle in place.


No vibratory screener is more portable than the SLG-78VF.

We have the largest screening area and smallest foot print of any other screener in its class. Our compact design weighs in at 2000lbs.

The SLG-78VF design has lift pockets for quick and easy movement with pallet forks. We also have designed lift lugs that can be inserted into the lift pocket openings for onsite movement using the bucket on your machine. This gives you the ability to move the screener around the worksite with your bucket so you do not have to change to pallet forks. The ability to move the screener quickly allows the operator to keep the screener close to pile reducing travel time. Short travel distance results in higher production and higher profits.


The SLG-78VF is the only compact topsoil screener in the industry that has a screen deck width that is to be wider that the bucket feeding the screener. It is also the only screener in the industry designed to load crossway on a trailer leaving room for a skid steer or compact excavator.

The ability to mobilize the screener and machine to feed the topsoil screener at the same time saves time and increases productivity.


DeSite SLG screeners are built to get the job done. We go the extra mile to make this screener second to none. We understand that people are skeptical of the quality with a price that is so much lower than our nearest competitor,

but remember that you are buying a machine without a lot of middle men marking up the product. We want our customers to be happy.

Tie Down Chain Slots

We have laser cut and reinforced tiedown slots into both each side of the screener, speeding up the process when chaining down the screener for transport.

Screening machine has laser cut reinforced tiedown slots.

Surface Finish

The SLG-78V just like our other screeners come with our Hammertone Powder Coat durable finish. Steel surfaces are shot blast previous to the painting process.

Bolt on components have been anodized to resist the elements of weather.

Screen Mesh

The SLG-78 can be fitted with multiple mesh sizes staring as small as 1/8 inch all the way up to 4 inches. The ability to fit the SLG-78VF with multiple mesh sizes allows screening for sand, topsoil, compost, gravel rock and wood waste. Changing the mesh to an alternate size will take under 10 minutes.

All of our mesh is constructed from 65mn steel for maximum wear using double lock crimp dies for tight durable fit. We offer all the sizes listed below. Custom screen sizes are available on request.

We offer you a wide variety of mesh size for your new DeSite screening machine. From just 1/8 inch to 4 inches with either a square pattern or an elongated mesh. The square pattern produces a more accurate sizing and used is primarily used for gravel and rock, while elongated is designed to handle soils and material with higher moisture. It is important to note that the size of the finished product going through will be smaller than the mesh opening size.
