It looks like we are just about ready to send over 160, 151S over to Libya for one of our dealers. Briggs makes up a special motor for use with a pressurized oil system that really helps the engine hold up in the harsh conditions. ... See MoreSee Less

Way over priced...

Been able to see their work first hand. They really put their heart and soul into their mining. Beautiful quality pieces. Good people!

This is a custom firefighter we built for a customer. We have built quite a few of these with GX270 Honda's and GX390 Honda motors. We use our PHP500 pump that has a head lift of over 160 feet. This has no problem providing enough flow for 2 x 1.5" fire hoses. The one before this we built a with a GX390 electric start / Manuel start with a small U1 battery mounted over the axel. I spoke to the customer after the purchase and with only one hose he had a tough time holding on to the nozzle. He was very happy ... See MoreSee Less

I wish there was a better way for you to market these for the people that live in a fire zone. Especially up here in NorCal

Best pool pump on the market!

I think u should market fire depts to use ur pumps for brush trucks etc.

What does the small hose off the pump run to on the stand?

What is the cost

Love this

We have had a busy January / February, We have 5 rock crushers being shipped out this week and last week. In the picture, you see one electric on a trailer. One electric on a stand and one powered by a GX390 honda with a 6 to 1 gearbox. You can see a huge difference in the pulley sizes of the electric versus the gas-powered. Not a pretty box and pallet that they are shipped in but effective. ... See MoreSee Less

A customer just asked a few questions about where to buy hookah diving gear for his new HydroAir.

Hello,
I'm inquiring about the HydroAir system; how much time is necessary for shipping?
Where do you recommend we should get hoses and regulators?
Thank you,

I believe we have two Hydroair left in stock. We could ship these out in 1 to 3 days

I would purchase the rest of the equipment from us Keene

We have the best air hose in the world, floating yellow non-kinking, very tough hose and should last for years of harsh use. Also, the hose is safe for breathing, most hoses such as a garage-type hose are toxic.
The air regulator that we sell is a top of the line and balanced from the factory for Hookah diving. I have dove with this regulator and I could breathe comfortably down to 15 PSI with no problem. Our typical working pressure with a Hydroair is between 10 and 55 psi. I have tried a few of the cheap import regulators and the air just isnโ€™t as smooth of breathing, plus If you drop the regulator it will be junk. The small RT1 tank is tough to beat as well. I would not dive without a tank especially with a Hydroair. The tank provides a buffer for the system reducing the cycle times on the relays inside the Hydroair, prolonging the life of the relays and compressors. Also if you need a surge of air to dig up a target rolling large rocks that would be more demanding you will not have to wait for the compressor to keep up. We also use standard type fitting so if something fails you can go anywhere to get out of trouble. Plus it is just simple to buy the whole package complete from us.

There is a huge influx of Chinese mining and diving equipment and all they do is copy everyone else out there. If you support the imports then you are killing off companies like Keene Engineering that really have passion and love for mining and work hard at new innovations and new products. We also work hard at supporting keeping mining open for all of us. Do you think the big stores care about your rights? If you look at the big stores such as Walmart Amazon etc. the bulk of the items they sell are all imported copies of our equipment. Plus most of the mining stuff they sell is junk and simply does not perform well and will discourage any newcomers. Buying American made products may cost a few dollars but in the long run it helps all of us.

based on the direction of the connector it seems to be an adapter for a smaller sluice box from a larger suction hose, doesn't seem to make much sense as if it is all I can see is rock jams trying to use this. LOL

My guess is a reducing swivel quick connector. Not sure on the sizes. If it's a suction nozzle, wouldn't it have a handle. I'm following this post for the answer.

Suction hose with coupler for an oversized flare extension adapter to add an additional suction hose. Also with a swivel in it. This would replace the nozzle on an extension hose. ???

I need one for my old 5” for in shallow water that way I don’t have to dig a hole for my suction hose right and the crash box.

6" hose quick connect reduced to a 5" swivel nozzle

Quick connect for dredge that goes in a state with smaller nozzle restrictions

cevice reducer because of state laws on opening of nozzle

22° hose swivel coupler

Quick connect swivel nozzle. The question is why?

6" to 5" swivel nozzle reducer with extra water intake for heavy sand intake

It appears you reduced a 6" down to a 4" nozzle.

Looks like a Plug Up Producer to me !!

Exhaust tip for a Honda Civic?

For getting a lot of gold for sure maybe for dragging

Gnarly!!

Quick disconnect hose coupler with swivel?

Goes to Mars

Suction line extender

Reducer.

Reducing

Looks like a 4 to 6in also

5" nozzle for a 6" dredge ...

Overzealous Dredging Regulation !!! A customer on Youtube asked about the impact on dredging and how it affected the fish spawning and the fish eggs. So Patrick provided some feedback.
Since the very beginning, dredgers and limited to certain time restrictions depending on spawning seasons on all rivers. Most of the time dredgers cannot dredge at these times anyhow due to the dangers with High water or fast velocity currents that are dangerous for most people. During the activity of dredging, we create beds of exposed gravels, which create perfect spacing beds where fish, can burrow into the gravel to lay fish fry or Larvae that are somewhat protected from the currents. As we bore down to the bedrock to vacuum deposits containing gold, The deep holes create, (thermal refugia), colder water in the holes which help fish and other aquatic life. Cooler water creates less stress to fish that occurs in warmer water. Environmentally speaking, dredging has been proven to remove 98 percent of all Mercury and lead for our streams and drinking water. Still some environmentalist extremists worked to create a permanent ban on dredging in order to stop mining for their own hidden agenda to destroy this type of outdoor family activity and stops the creation of new wealth.

Over the years Keene Engineering has spent nearly a million dollars fighting the corrupt system. We still support groups like AMRA to defend the prospectors rights.

Fish and fishermen love to hang out down stream of my 6 inch when I'm running.

A great day of fishing is three kills. A single fish kill would be tragic to a miners lifetime.

They, the Dems in Oregon, don't care about actual reports, proven data or they use "could, might, or feel" "data and shut down our waterways from dredging. Also, DEQ have hearings but don't allow miners to voice their concerns or have "experts" using the same "data" as mentioned before, shutdown mining districts and/or put out so much red tape and fees that make it impossible to dredge in Oregon.

Places I have dredged have increased fish life/habitat tremendously through the years. They literally school at the end of the sluice catching whatever they can floating by. Its amazing to see. We always put rocks back into the holes. When the next heavy rain hits, which is very regular, the hole fills in fully and it's like it never happened. Never altering anything.

The fish love dredgers . End of story!

Nicely said.

You could also point out that since the moratorium they have had some of the worst spawns ever.

Uno it sucks not too have the funds to putting things right

Well said Pat

Be ready to video any and all confrontations with these people.

Try explaining that to Alaska Fish and Game. We have some real winners running the show nowadays. I have a couple State Legislators trying to resolve arbitrarily closing rivers because of gravel conditions are favorable for "possible " spawning with no fish.

I work a creek here in komifornia this past summer. I ran a three inch combo dredge and the hole i created made it possible for the native trout and crawdads to survive when the creek was at it's lowest water level.
