  1. Ok.. gotta throw mine in too... this is from Steve Herschbach, Jeff Reed and myself. I think this was our first trip in there(?) Maybe you'd remember Steve.
  2. Because "most" dredgers are fair weather dredgers.. you really only need a drain if you're going to be in freezing weather. It's easy enough to do it yourself but big kudo's to Keene for putting a little more in the correct spot for the drain. A little inside fyi.. Keene pumps might start coming with the intakes on the pump threaded so you can screw the intake hose on, that way you won't get any air.
  3. Sorry.. I am out as well, I've been trying to get ahold of the vendor but they won't respond.
  4. Yeah, right where the end of my hose is there was a really rich layer of black sand/Gold about 2" out of the water but it was frozen. I was doing about 1/4 to 1/2 oz per hour out of it.
  5. Yup.. They had a price increase last year but they're forced again to have another increase.
  6. Just an FYI, Keene will have another price increase the end of this month.. 3-5% across everything.
  7. Thanks for the thought Joe but we can't do that.. we voided the transaction but I greatly appreciate you thinking of us. Thanks, Brian
  8. Sorry, I'm sold out but will hopefully get some more next season. I use them too for clean up in my operation of my 8" dredge.. I use them too in my clean ups on my 8" dredge...
  9. Thanks Steve.. that's pretty awesome. You probably could've worn that piece of gold out like an earring.. lol.. looks like something kids wear these days!
  10. Just one other little tid bit, the 4" mini is a great little portable dredge, however since it does have a smaller sluice box and flare, I would get it with a suction nozzle and have the lower half the sluice box replaced with #3 expanded metal for better gold recovery.. again.. just my 2 cents.
