1 Replies and 3584 Views Keene A53 for 3 Dredge.  3584  1 Started by We got a Keene A52 sluice for our 3' dredge. Having only run a Goldwell sluice we have no experience with this new one. We run the Goldwell at /- 5 degrees of slope and it works very well.  My question is, should we run the Keene at the same angle or is there another degree of slope /- that works better  We have a Keene P185 pump with a Honda GX200 motor. We run the motor at about 3/4 throttle and the suction seems to be fine. Thanks for your learned input -----------------------...

5 Replies and 51926 Views inexpensive breathing system  51926  5 Started by  Richard367 Does anyone know an inexpensive setup for dredging so I can dive underwater to dredge. I have a small 2.5 inch dredge. My motor would not support a t-80. I can find them but the mean price seems to be 1,100-1,200 and I would like to get a setup for around half that. Any thoughts would be helpful thx!

1 Replies and 12259 Views 3 lay flat for discharge  12259  1 Started by We have been using a coiled (spiraled) PVC discharge hose on our 3' dredge. It seems to be developing a lot of leaks due to the rocks beating up the hose as they pass to the sluice. It's also really bulky. Would a 3' heavy duty lay flat hose work better Would it be flexible and durable enough to handle the rocks and other stuff the dredge sucks up One big advantage of a lay flat hose is It would certainly be easier to tote the the stream than the hose we are using now.  Thanks for any ...

This baby has lots of giddy up, The water velocity is tremendous, so much so it seems to be overwhelming our sluice. I'm afraid we are blowing gold out the end of the sluice and loosing it.  My question is; how do we tame the velocity of the water and still maintain suction at the nozzle We tried slowing down the motor but we lost significant suction.  Is this just something you have to fiddle wit...

I paid about $150 for the same style that would be about $300 or more elsewhere. I am quite pleased with the quality of the suit and the thought of the design.

18 Replies and 24573 Views Homemade 4 build  24573  18 Started by Ok so here are pictures of my 4 inch dredge build. She is all done and ready for water. The wife named her 'PEBBLES'. She cost $1085.47 not counting the pump which is 2 years old but was bought at Tractor Supply for around $140 so add that to it and its a total of $1225.47 for her. Way cheaper than buying one plus she was made by me and with my design. I ran her last week on a temporary float and the flare and sluice ran great at 1/2-3/4 throttle. Can't wait to get her in a creek in the next wee...
