I blundered into this on Youtube. At first I laughed out loud but this thing is actually pretty clever.
Check it out.

Yeah, That is a pretty slick idea but I'm with JohhnyBravo, clay is my issue and I don't think that would help much. Maybe if he came up with a clay buddy :)

I like it! Great idea. Much faster than doing it with your hands. And, less tiring. Now, what it needs is to have all that motorized.....preferably with a 12v motor. Adjustable timing between the rotary action, and the flip. The only problem I see is that you could accomplish the same thing (continuous feed classifying) with nothing but a sloped screen and a 12v vibrator, though you wouldn't have the water helping clean the material.

You could easily build a similar device without all the claptrap and foot pedal and what not. Just hinge a classifier to your bucket with a wooden handle attached opposite the hinge. Fill the classifier, jiggle the handle up and down, then dump.

$350? Twenty bucks max.

I was thinking of building something like this but mine was going to be powered with a sawzall rocking a bucket. One thing I see breaking on this one is the metal connected to a plastic classifier over time that will be the first thing to fail.
It got me thinking.
