Mine Clearing Sifter (MCS) is a dozer mounted anti-personnel mine sifter capable of lifting and sifting mines, unexploded ordnance and minefield clutter buried to a depth of 15 cm. The system is hydraulically driven and incorporates Standen Star technology as the sifting medium. The sifter weighs approximately 5700 kg and will clear a path 280 cm wide. The mines are side cast by a cross conveyor for subsequent disposal. A Rockland Rough Service Rake has been integrated with a quick hitch mechanism for scarifying the soil prior to mine clearance operations. This action breaks up the sod and fractures the soil thus improving the sifting process. Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited
