The Gold Wedge Flared Aluminum Sluice - The 40 inch long flared aluminum sluice is detachable and is designed as a natural gold trap starting 10 inches wide and flared to 17 inches wide. As the sluice widens the water velocity slows and drops values. Complete with .085 diamond cut expanded aluminum over carpet, zinc plated steel riffles, and a classifier screen to enhance fine gold recovery. The input end is 10 inches wide and designed to work with a number of JOBE sluice accessories.
Weighs just over 13 pounds.
The Back-Pack Dredge Flotation
- The polypropylene floatation platform is 27 x 41 inches and weighs 15 pounds.
The unique combined design of our backpacks dredges frame and flotation makes
for a very lightweight but rugged support system. Works on all of our Back-pack
dredges, power jet and suction nozzle plus a variety of dredges and hibankers
manufactured by JOBE, Keene, and Proline. About anything with a 10" sluice can
be adapted to work with this flotation.
Suction Nozzle and Header Box - The 2 inch
suction nozzle configuration uses the JOBE Dredge header box and the JOBE 2 inch
Suction Nozzle for ultimate performance.
Engine / Pump and Frame - This smart floating
suction gold dredge system uses a JOBE 95 GPM high pressure aluminum pump on a
Honda 2.5 HP engine for ultimate performance. The engine is designed to easily
detach from the flotation to facilitate refueling on the bank and the base plate
has shock absorbent feet in case you want to use the pump in a free
standing application off the dredge. The base plate is attached to a plated
steel frame for use on the dredge. The motor / pump with base plate weighs 18
pounds and the frame adds only 2.8 pounds.
Includes all the hoses and fittings and everything you need to start dredging for gold right away.
