    Ok, so there I was driving home from a family road trip of over 4500 miles and on craigslist I see a 3" Gold King dredge highbanker combo for sale in Wichita, so i buy it for $500  (motor and pump included). It looks well used but in ok shape I notice it is missing the coupler for the dredge hose to the box, which is my first question, where can i get a replacement fitting?  I guess it would have to be a four inch to three inch for the plastic hose to fit.  I have attached a photo to show what I think I am missing.  Other than that it looks like it is all there, please look at the photos and let me know if I am wrong it is my first dredge/highbanker so not 100% sure what I should have.  Second I was wondering if I got a good deal on the buy.  It also included two 36" sluices.  I know it will all come down to the briggs and straten engine and gold king pump working properly, I know the motor turns so it is at least not seized up.  Any help would be appreciated!!  I hope I got a good deal so I can tell my wife to chill out on spending the money.

    Another question is if anyone has used the Hydro Force Nozzles in the desert? If so how did it work, worth the buy or just keep shoveling into the highbanker?

    go to this link   http://gpex.ca/smf/index.php?topic=...bsp;  and you can see how much he is selling his stuff for and if you look at the photo you can see there is a hose screw in to the flange that is on your box so it looks like all you need is to have a hose that is the right size to screw in to your flange

    Thanks for the link, it does look like i just "screw" the suction hose into the housing! It looks like the only piece missing is the grizzly bars for the highbanker. I think I got a great deal as long as the engine and pump work fine. Thanks Jeff!
