I’d like to see it run.. So cool!

Epic!!

Business is exciting these days. We are doing a lot of custom work. This is a stack of 38" wide boxes for custom dredging operation. We are building 4 complete sluices 38" wide boxes 20 feet long each. Not many people out there in the world are willing or have the knowledge to take on a project like this. ... See MoreSee Less

Working overtime again.

Ohhhh yehhhhhh..

It’s probably not being used in the continental US . More than likely Alaska

How big would the pressure hose have to be for a 12 inch power jet if u could build a 12 inch power jet?

This is an 8" power jet used on larger dredges. This one is set up slightly differently, with some wear plates welled into the sides.. This is on its way up to Nome, AK. ... See MoreSee Less

How much is a 8in jet

Build a ten”

That bad boy will move some water... and dirt. and hopefully a little gold. Have a six inch that would kick it back in the day. Bought here used 30+ years ago from a Vietnam vet who used her up near Magalia. Puts the idea of moving material from a theoretical concept. to reality right quick.

That’s a monster

Nome where things go to die..

Here are a few more pictures of Larry's ice mining operation. This looks like a lot of work in harsh, cold conditions. If I had time and a little younger, it would look like an adventure of a lifetime.
I have known Larry for many years, and he is one of the few guys I turn to for advice on dredging designs. This is the same guy who took a 40 hp Vanguard, sent the engine out, and had it upgraded to a 52-hp, and this engine is what is powering his 8" dredge. Talk about a adventure!!!

Looks like a blast, I remember the days of dredging high in the sierras all winter long and having to but my old 5” triple out of the ice with my rock bar and using a blow torch to defrost my impeller. Some of the best memories I have of dredging. Funny how difficultly and hardship creates such good memories!

Larry is a great guy. I'm going to have to go visit him up there

One of my dealers, Larry, with Island Mining, is a full-time miner in Nome, Alaska. He was kind enough to share a few pictures of the current Ice mining operation. All I can say is Very Big Ball of Steel. ... See MoreSee Less

We built This custom nozzle for a guy with a heavy-duty Trash pump that keeps getting plugged up. His pump can handle up to a 2" sphere we made our maximum opening at 1.75" Plus the pump he has is very strong he was unable to clear the tip by hand, in fact, body parts will get stuck in the tip. This is a 4" swivel tip with a suction-breaking flap so he can now clear the tip without getting hurt. Plus we have a variety of handles plus the big T handle. If he is standing up, he can attach a rope to the suction-breaking flap and pull it open to break the suction so he can clear the tip. ... See MoreSee Less
