Dirt Sifter works but has some issues
The dirt sifter is made with good quality metal and construction. The shipping box and Styrofoam, etc was packed well with no shipping damage. The assembling directions were abysmal. Somewhat vague with no pictorial references at all. The instructions need more detail with details pictures to assist novices. After assembly, the sifter wobbles on flat surfaces. Again, the instructions mention vaguely about wobbly legs with no details on how to resolve that. I contacted the "customer support" # prior to purchasing this, since I couldn't find any reviews online about it. I was not given the time of day in this regards. The rep that replied via email said that there were no videos available. I asked if one could be posted to youtube, etc., but I didn't get a reply. Now, on to the review of the sifter's operation. The operation/assembly booklet is only 1 small page folded over. It's not a lot of detail. I shoveled 3 shovels full of dirt into the sifter and cranked on the handle. I found out right away that you must place your feet on the legs of the sifter to keep it from tipping over. The auger with its tines started sifting the dirt with some effort, which was to be expected. The dirt I'm sifting has some clay components. After sifting the majority of the dirt, The clay infused dirt clumped on the sides of the bottom grill and the grill itself. I had to scrap away this debris by hand. It seems that stopping to clean up the sifter will be a challenge. This isn't a design flaw. The dirt was sifted very well that was placed inside. The chute dropped it below nicely. The design to remove the debris left behind is not well thought out. In the back of the sifter, there's a flap that a latch. It can opened, and I'm guessing it's supposed to fall out below. It partially falls down the chute, and you have to lean it back to drop the remaining chunks. I might be using it incorrectly, but once again the operating instructions were about three sentences long. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. The quality is good, but the support and some design issues are a problem for me.
