2 Replies and 4384 Views Best utility tub made?  4384  2 Started by  live2hunt I'll be working my recirculating highbanker this year and have been wondering if there is one utility tub/tote made tougher than the rest I'd need it to not only hold water ( of course), but to store the buckets, sump pump, screens and such and be durable enough for some tough hauling into and out of gold producing ground.

4 Replies and 9083 Views Advice on using the GMS (Cal Sluice) high banker?  9083  4 Started by  voodoo As above, thanks.   Please feel free to chime in.  I already run a Keene 2.5 combo unit and am looking for a much lighter unit for carrying far afield.  I think that the GMS unit is nearly perfect. 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!

10 Replies and 20633 Views Grizzly bars, expanded metal or punch plate?  20633  10 Started by  Fishroper828 I want to spending the winter building a high banker hopper that I can attach to my Keene A52 and I was hoping some of you would weigh in on you own preferences as to which you prefer. 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 12470 Views Water Jet Nozzles for the hopper???  12470  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.
