So Patrick and I are getting out there getting our selfs back in shape before we ride up to some of our favorite prospecting sites . We have a few spots after the big rains we want to check out however the hike is about 5 miles in and out. We have a trip planed to take out just some snipping tools and pans going light. Let face pat is turning 60 and I am 63 so the days of hiking in 5 prospecting for the day then hike out 5 miles are just getting tougher. So a little E-bike action can make the trip easy. ...

This is a sand dredging operation ... See MoreSee Less

People don’t realize how you can clean up waterways and beach fronts. I’ve tried to tell my town about our water system and how we can do the sand filters. Course they don’t hear it cause they can’t picture it. Awesome clean up .

This is a standard Suction swivel tip we use on our reclamation systems. Mainly used for moving sand and muck. Not for mining it would jam up to quickly in with rocks. However for clearing out boat docks sand bars and swimming holes works great ... See MoreSee Less

Does this come in 2.5 inch?

I see a great wintertime dredge nozzle that keeps me in the water but not under the water .... I don't see it in the catalog ..... Part Number and Cost ?

These items are not in the catalog or price list. The handle is called a SSTH and the price tag of $75.00 Covers the the cost of modifying the swivel tip as well. We kept it simple using standard pipe threads so you could modify it easily

That's a great idea. Thanks 👍

Keene KT10 what a change from the original prototypes.

We are excited to present our new KT10 trommel. We built Trommel capable of moving a serious amount of material, over a yard per hour. This trommel is ideal for the most difficult conditions, such as high clay content and compacted gravels. The 5 legs, 4 adjustable articulating legs allow the machine to be set up in the most difficult or uneven conditions quickly and easely. The adjustable legs take seconds to adjust the angle and height of the unit, allowing you to control the speed of the material thought the rotating drum. The super quite aluminum classifier perfectly classifies and washes the material. This creates the perfect environment for high production and fine gold recovery. The whole machine is constructed out of modern lightweight materials such as the Crosslink Polyethylene feed hopper, belly pan and drum end caps that are light and indestructible. The frame is made out of light weight square steel tube the can be easily broken down into smaller components for transportation. The trommel can be assembled and dissembled in a matter minutes with the use of pin lock connectors and wing bolts.

When using this trommel, it is simply a pleasure to work, it just eats unclassified material, you can shovel directly into the large feed hopper or rest your bucket in the cradle. We also love the fact the you do not have to lift a heavy bucket any higher than your waist. You stay dry and don’t get wet and cold. The sluice box runs out of either side making it easier for a fast set up in any ground condition. Having the sluice run out to one the side of trommel enables you to monitor the sluice loading and controlling the feed rate.

KT10DC 12 volt DC system with 2 x U.S. made, RP2200 water pumps and small DC 2 speed motor that rotates the drum. The DC system is ideal for areas that do not allow gas engines or you just prefer to maintain a low profile and super quiet or prefer not to hear a running engine. The DC system pulls 18 amps so a standard automotive deep cycle should run roughly 6 hours. 3/4 yards per hour. Weighs 75 lbs. shipping weight. 95 lbs.

KT10WD Trommel with the water motor is my personal favorite. Water pressure will power this entire unit with as it spins the water motor that drives a planetary gear box with a ball valve to control and adjust speed of the barrel. The second valve regulate the water flow and adjust the speed. This unique system allows you to operate the trommel at the the source or diggins. We also incorporated a 20 mesh inline filter system to protect the water motor from debris. One motorized pump runs the entire machine which powers the drum and provides water to the spray bars and the feed hopper. 1 yard per hour. Weight 62 lbs. shipping weight 78 lbs.

We are utilizing a large 10” drum that allows us to run larger unclassified rocks through the system and serious capacity. We have equipped our drum with a adjustable internal adjustable double spray bars that you can fine tune for different types of material. The drum is set up so you can change the screen size for many different applications and easy to change from 1/2”, 3/8”, 1/4”, 3/16” or finer but 3/8” is the standard. The finer screens will be best suited for processing concentrates or areas that carry fine gold. The drum is also has internal angle bars that can be relocated or removed for fine tuning.

The trommel performs best with our A52S Super sluice box with a A52SHAS feed box with rubber flaps, Miracle matting, expanded metal and classifier screen. The adapter can be mounted to most 10” sluice boxes. You may need 2 x shorter legs to fit under the trommel.

Please call us on Monday and we will be happy to give you the cost on our new water motor. 818-993-0411.

I would love to have a DC powered Conveyors belt I have wanted to build one for years for my dry washing trammel high bankers etc. If anyone see one let me know I have seen one bank in the 1980,s using a aluminum ladder with a canvas belt. Very cool

We do offer the water motors separately Roughly $600.00 with the hose and filter. You have to filter or you could tear up the motor. I will have to check stock when you are ready to order since we are selling quite a few complete trammels

Great to see Keene continuing to put out quality equipment.

Can I purchase just the water powered motor?? How much? Thanks looks great!!

Good for a public fosicking area

how much water does it use per hr?

Beautiful engineering

No price

All you need is a solar powered 12v conveyor and you’re in business! I’ve thought about building one for my Gold Cube. PVC for the legs reinforced with rebar & concrete for rigidity. 12v gear motor & RPM controller. Couple 2x4s for the frame. Yeeeeeeeah buddy!

Looks amazing!

These lawmakers have no idea. This year i met a ranger on the river and we talked and he accompanied me for 1.5hrs mining he had no idea how to or what went into it. By the end of it he had more understanding and actually enjoyed it. Changing one mind at a time and repairing miner And local government relationships.

Nature dose worse I really don't get it to

How big was the lawnmower?

This is exactly what I've always suggested about dredging vs nature 🤣

We absolutely love the new custom set up from Keene Engineering! Mark is awesome for the design. Here is a video of our first today in action. We ran close to two yards in about 4 hours. ... See MoreSee Less

This is just a sample of grind. The grinds does get much finer however we did not take the time to really dial the machine in. This is not bad considering you can toss a football size rock into the crusher and it comes out roughly 50 mesh or so. ... See MoreSee Less

Hell! I’m happy with 50 mesh !!

Are you going to show us what you get when you clean that up?

How much per ton is it costing you to grind that up
