Small Trommels - 1 Yard Per Hour

I'd think of using UHMWPE as its a proven slurry pipe, tougher than a boot but may be pricey. It will beat PVC hands down.,,,,,,,,,but then again what do I know about pipe,I used a piece of it for a project onetime and it's hard to hurt.

I'm definitely no expert since this is really just a hobby of mine but it sounds to me like a mountain Goat trommel is what you need. Light, portable, versatile.. it's durable but it's no heavy-duty machinery like you mentioned.
