0 Replies and 1722 Views Keene 190 series drywasher - opinions?  1722  0 Started by Hello all, I have my eyes on the new Keene 190 (actually the 192, with the wet conversion kit) drywasher. Before I go drop a pretty penny, I thought I'd ask if anyone out there has any experience with one. I know that one was featured on an episode of Gold Trails......would just appreciate the input of anybody else that may have some hours using one. It sure seems like a pretty sweet piece of equipment! Thanks, Jim

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Fairly new at this; have a few pans and a small power sluice. Could use your collected wisdom on better outfitting myself. Clothing / waders / shovels & crevicers, all that ancillary stuff. If it has worked for you it will probably work for me, too. What has made your forays better (and maybe profitable) Thanx.
