Patrick and I are going out again for some final testing. The machine is working great. I am only struggling to get the plumbing just right. I tried in on a pack frame and the high banker box hopper was a piece of cake to move around the entire package was a little much for my 59-year-old body. So if a few guys wanted to pack this in would be no problem with the fuel tools etc. Keep in mind this is not a little toy this really moves material, especially with the high banker. ...

I did move the motor lower and a second set up I just did not take a picture.

Keep it up thank you for providing us with amazing products!!!

Awesome!! Izaiah wants to go! 😉

Still trying to figure out why the motor is up top. Probably has gas in it also?? Great parking lot picture.. hike it in a canyon a few miles and lets see that smile.

Be careful of low laying branches from trees when hiking please.

Pat Keene!

How much this costs the price

Maybe incorporate a fold-up wheels chassis option into this also, for the desert guys. Then a person could were a backpack-and pull this behind. 😎

You probably find it easier to carry with the motor mounted at the level of your waist /hips.

What is the weight of the whole package?

Cool set up

I need a backpack like this

What’s the price shipped to Australia

Motor up top ...Nope. gotta put that motor down low ...👍🔧🔨

HUMP this 16 miles lol

When will these go to market

How is it with the engine/pump up top like that?

This is a custom made 6" supermax we are working on. This one is designed to capture both super fine gold and Diamonds. The dredge is equipped with the sump system and the sluice box is set up with a 4-foot extension with a diamond riffle. We are anticipating that the diamond recovery should work very well since we are removing the sand from a diamond riffle board. The float and frame are also extended to accommodate the longer box. This dredge will definitely outperform any dredge in the world in floatation recovery and power. ... See MoreSee Less

I will try to get some working pictures however typically when sending equipment to Africa the only time you will here from them is when they need a spare parts

What country is this going to ?

Outstanding!

We LOVE our Super 6!! Great Dredge!

Stolen grocery cart. Nice. 🤣

😎☠

Nice

Nice

Cool

It’s a MONSTER !

What country is this dredge bound for? Hope the new owner(s)/miners send pictures.

Sounds like this one is taking a boat tide out to Africa?

Not sure on the price just yet. We will be working up a price quote next week. We have the box running really good now and it plows through the material.

Next week we should have some pricing just working out a few details now like the pluming and some screens

This hopper should fit most 10" boxes

Let me know what you need, I should be Able to get a flap the box

Can we order one of the flaps for the for my older keene? And does that hopper fit a 10” wide keene sluice?

What would the price be for that sexy hopper?

Looks good 👍

What the price range?

These are a few pictures of the sponge gold before and after cleaning. He cleaned the gold with a little pine sole and dishwashing liquids. Most hose hold cleaners work well. ... See MoreSee Less

So awesome

Excellent, congratulations

Nice stuff

Pine Sol & Household cleaners. Good tip.

I would like to know why this person didn’t leave it in its original state? Could he have gotten more for a specimen price then a cleaning price? Please keep me posted on this...

Hey Pat, I took the A52S to Roaring Camp Gold and it worked great. Thanks.

How much will that hopper cost

One of our good friends just came back from Alaska and did some dredging. He did pretty dam good. This is not all the gold they found !!! ... See MoreSee Less

Awesome. WAs that from Scotty?

Excelente, felicidades

Nice I've wanted to go up there for a GPAA outing.

My dad just got back from Nome! He’s still cleaning out his gold 😉

I'm in the Reno, NV area and looking at getting your new sluice. You guys have any advice for a newbie?

They did "dame" good? Hmmm. never heard that one before

These are a few pictures from today testing. It is hard to see all the changes we made since they are miner however everything adds up to making a better machine. The screen over the miracle matting should work really well. The screen over the matting makes a big difference. Two things Slowing the water down under the screen, and keeping the larger material from impacting the riffle action. The woven wire did perform very well in the A52S however the A52S sits too high to run it in this box. I tried a few times now. The A52S sluice should be completely underwater so the rocks have full contact with the water to rocks get carried out of the sluice. Not enough water depth to use the A52S screen system in this sluice. This weekend we are trying out 2 different riffle boards spray bars and both the dredge set up and high banker set up. I am also really happy with the removable rubber damper just makes it easy to see what is going on at the top end of the sluice box. The rod that holds and locks the sluice and hopper in place during transportation. ... See MoreSee Less

It looks like the dredge is sitting a little ass end heavy. You must be running the larger engines. I would consider running a set of outriggers to lift the back end up.

That is great!

Every thing that you, brother and you’re Engineering team has only gives to the small & big prospecting team. Thank you team Keene!!!

Can this hopper be made to fit a 10” wide sluice with a 2.5” dredge attachment?

Hi Keene Do you have a set of the 6 inch floats you made for Gold Rush Whitewater?

Looks great

do you got vids of all of this up on you channel on youtube ??

Like I said.
