How Richard started screening topsoil and making cash with no past experience

Paving company

Key takeaways

  • Over the phone, we were able to provide Richard with a range of information, from videos to transport sizes to help him purchase a conveyor.
  • We also worked with Richard to understand his screening needs and also supplied a trommel which suited the amount of topsoil he wanted to produce
  • Both machines were delivered in less than a week from purchase, thanks to the stock we hold in Ohio.

Who are they?

Richard and his team are experienced residential and commercial pavers, catering to a wide range of hardscaping & swimming pool needs.

They specialize in turn-key fiberglass pool installations, outdoor kitchens, fire pits, outdoor fireplaces & paver driveways, walkways, patios, retaining walls, terrace walls, and steps.

Why they chose us

Richard owns a range of machines that he has purchased over the years second hand, or from dealerships.

But after spotting one of our conveyors on Facebook, Richard submitted an enquiry for some more information about the machine, and our new direct from manufacturer model.

How it went down

Having previously bought machines in person, dealing with Machinery Partner was a new experience for Richard.

Over the phone, we were able to provide him with a range of information, from videos to transport sizes that made him more than informed to make his decision.

Richard was so impressed with our prices, level of service, and speed of delivery that he actually decided to purchase not one, but two machines with us.

The first machine was a R6536TR radial conveyor, which was very straightforward for him, but Richard also wanted to get into screening topsoil.

Having no previous experience with screening, we were able to guide Richard through his options and match him with a Barford T516 Trommel; perfect for processing the topsoil he wanted to screen.


Both machines were delivered a week from purchase, thanks to the stock we hold in Ohio.

We also helped Richard through the finance process for his Trommel, working with our partners to get him a great rate and monthly payments that worked for his business.

Richard and his team are now happily producing piles of brown gold!

UPDATE: Richard also recently bought a crusher from us using the profits he made from his soil screening set up!
