Since last Thursday night, the shop my home has been full of smoke from the fire we just through. I live in Grandahill close to the shop. I went hiking yesterday with my dog and our local canyon was wiped out. Some of the crew could not make it work on Friday as well. These are a few pictures from my local canyon. ... See MoreSee Less
More hurricanes wild fires and and weather in general the further time goes on, must be a connection somewhere! Sending good vibes your way!
Fires seem to be getting more common, hopefully everyone's families are safe. Always a very stressful thing to deal with.
Wow glad to hear you are safe
Glad everyone and everything is alright.
All ok I hope!
Very sorry this is happening. Washington did a different approach. They attacked all fires with full force. I know your area is a little different.
That was a close one! Be prepared. .
Now with the brush and trees gone it’ll be easier to metal detect!

This is something you do not see every day. One of our customer Environmental Water Management Inc. has us build a very portable gravel pump system that mounts on a small trailer to get into remote areas. This pump can pass 3.5" sphears to include beer cans. ropes golf balls etc. This pump can pump an excess of a thousand feet away. So if you have some custom pumping needs give me a call and I will give the Steves number the owner of the company ... See MoreSee Less
Very interesting. 👍👍👍
Hard winds have hit Southern California this week, with this marks the official start of wildfire season.
The Woolsey Fire that hit Malibu California was a local matter for us, the fire was just 15 miles away from our facility in Chatsworth.
We supplied victims of the fire with sieves and buckets to aid in the recovery of important personal belongings that were buried by ash and have sold many of our Keene Fire-Fighter units to home owners over the years. In the years since its debut, the Fire-Fighter has saved dozens upon dozens of homes and has become a staple item for the fire-prepared homeowner. Whether if it’s using our high-powered water nozzle to push back flames head-on or utilizing the optional Scotty Fire-Fighter attachment to spray down your home with a layer of fire-resistant foam, the Fire-Fighter is a must-have item during seasons such as the one we’re in right now.
The California Chaparral Institute—a group dedicated to protecting our homeland from devastation such as the fires we face annually—has written articles on protecting homes from fires and how to best prepare for the event. In these articles the Keene Fire-Fighter is often brought up and recommended as the go-to option for homeowners to protect their homes during the crisis.
This article is a highly recommended read for anyone that wants to better equip themselves this season:
The Keene Fire-Fighter is available for $1,895 on our website and for those wanting more information on it or an expedited order, please call us at (818) 993 – 0411.
Proudly made in the USA.
We have built these for over 50 years and we provide parts and service.
Similar machines are often made of foreign parts and are near impossible to find parts for.
We have also made some improvements to the product as of late these are:
-The new cam-lock pump intake makes a perfect seal every time and requires no tools to attach or detach your intake hose.
-The new and improved pump priming system makes preparation for using the unit much easier.
-New pump flushing port to aid in cleaning the pump after use.
Cleaning your pump out is a must for this unit, as its water source will come from your or a neighbor’s pool. Pool water has a high concentration of chlorine and hydrochloric acid that when left in the pump can lead to large amounts of rust or oxidation depending on the kind of metal the pump is made of. We service pumps 30 years old and a common occurrence in these are oxidation or rust, this can cause a pump to fail prematurely and sometimes even become an unserviceable issue. This is an easy thing to prevent though, simply flush out the unit after each and every unit and the pump will last for decades. ... See MoreSee Less

This is just an update on the previous post regarding the 210 dry washer. The new 210 commercial dry wash with all the latest modifications is working amazingly well. The new side doors allow you to monitor the riffle action with our sticking your head in the box. The main thing is by installing a separation material under the vibrating shaker and not allowing weight to settle on the recovery box. This allows the dry washer to vibrate freely and we are now finding most of the gold in the first riffle. After finding ounces of gold and haveing clean tailing this is really something special. I am personly really excited about this, especially from the source. This is what I found in our testing and to have it confirmed from a very credible customer is huge. So if you are serious about dry washer in the go-to machine. ... See MoreSee Less
