  1. Good shape works perfect. Also have the 8" coil.Would like to trade for a minelab gpx, sdc, or.....? Make $ offer not sure what a used one is going for. I don't need to sell it just don't ever use it, i prefer my gpx 4500.
  2. I usually tend to over do things.lol. What saw would u recommend to mount to the lewis?
  3. Keene Mini Max

    I'm in need of something like this for my 6" dredge cons. I think i like it better then the cube setup. Do u think the recovery is just as good as the cube?
  4. I love my ocean reefe full face mask. Sometimes I have trouble getting it to seal just right, but still way better then chewing on a mouth piece the whole time. I have a smaller head I probally could use a smaller size of they even offer one. Or shave muy beard. Lol
  5. Great thanks for the info im gonna definently get a lewis. I got a brand new stihl 461 that can be direct mount and loose that little chain or I have a handful of other saws, but I like the idea of directly mounting it. Seems like that little chain would get wore out fast.
  6. I've seen the rule but it has lower ratings then the Lewis. I have a older homelite that looks like the rule and it's ran by a litle rubber belt. It can't even lift itself off the ground,lol! I tried to take it apart to fix it but it was a pain!
  7. How does the lewis winch work for moving boulders? I'm about to order one. I've used 12v winches for a long time and it worlds great minus the battery factor. I was worried with the Lewis not having reverse like a electric winch, that id get it stuck
  8. Dredge Hose

    Awsome thank you. As always very helpful steve.do u know if tiger flex sh is compatible with proline adapter? Yes even in this hot whether this hose is very stiff. I was thinking ad 10-15' of very flexible hose so I can at least maneuver the end of it, then when I'm in tight/shallow spots only use the short hose. I would of loved a shorter hose last time out.lol. as u can see was a tight spot. Ended up just having to go thru the belly because telling were backing up to fast. Do u have 9hp motors on ur 6 or 6.5hp?
  9. I know, this has already been gone over but im looking for the most flexible not the toughest like most people want. Hello I'm looking for 6" suction hose. I have a proline 6" dredge and the hose I have is tough which means stiff. I'm trying to find the most flexible suction hose with matching ribs on the out side that is compatible with proline thing that threads on the outside of hose. I would like to add a 10' very flexible section. And sometimes use just the 10' for tight spots maybe even get 15'. Thanks in advance.
  10. Where To Dredge?!?

    I use to run a 4" full time and I could never get enough material thru the box. A 6 can always be reduced for different state laws, unless it a hp then I'm screwed! Lol. Anything smaller is just to slow, when I use my 2" dredge/high banker I don't even bother with suction until the holes empty then I suck the cracks clean, I can shovel the gravel 3 times faster then sacking it up with that little noodle hose. I'm most likely going to run it close to home, until late construction slows down, then I'll take a vaca. I was thinking idaho nevada or arizona, my sister lives in Colorado and I would love to go there but it's just to far, same with alaska! I'm a smaL town guy don't leave home very often.lol. I also have a couple 4", so I could go to that if the laws are strick.
  11. Where To Dredge?!?

    Hi thank u. I am already a amra member. Anyone who mines or enjoys going out into our blm or fs land should donate to them. They really are fighting for our rights. They have many out of state claims, just not sure where to go. I'm picking the dredge up this week. I don't have time to run it to busy laying concrete!
  12. I've never really seen one in person. Looks cool. Can u submerge the sluice completely, how's the recovery. I would guess more of a nugget trap.
  13. Ok so I live in tuolumne ca and i got a proline 6" dredge on order and will be picking it up in a few weeks. And I can't decide where to go? Looking for guidance on good out of state spots. I used to kill it arround here begore it went illegal. Not to say i ever stoped but im sick of sneaking arround! I have unfinished holes that are right off the side of the road, good half ounce a day holes! That I had to walk away from after having law enforcement chase us out. Used to be my only income. Really screwed me!!!! Any way I could botch about it all day.lol. I have some hard to get spot arround here I might go for but would like to take some vacations to somewhere legal
