I am looking for real world experience (not a youboob video) from our members.   THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING THE GREAT GROUP OF LIKE MINDED INDIVIDUALS WITH A PIONEERING SPIRIT THAT YOU ARE!

I know they each have pros and cons, but having limited funds for the project and no welder I was hoping for ideas and suggestions so I can move forward with confidence and not waste money on an idea I may have that won't work.

8 Replies and 12609 Views Water Jet Nozzles for the hopper???  12609  8 Started by  joebob Hi, I built a river sluse that converts to a high banker, It will have 8ft of gold hog mats and a hopper from South yuba. The hopper will have 1'1\2 pvc shooting from 3 sides and I was wondering what works best for a pressure nozzles for this application. What I have found so far is pressure washer nozzles but will these have enough volume for the flow in the sluse I was trying to get a fanning nozzles to wash more area than just drilling holes. Any ideas thanks for your input.
