THE ULTIMATE IN FINE GOLD RECOVERY
The light weight, portability and affordability of our 4" dredge makes it appealing to both the weekend prospector and the serious dredger alike. Small enough to slide into a pickup, light enough to be packed into remote areas, the 4" makes an excellent one man dredge. This model is equipped with pontoons that have increased stability over previous models, while remaining compact and lightweight. The frame remains essentially the same as previous models. It's a sturdy bolt together design which allows the dredge to be disassembled into smaller components for ease of transport. Assembly requires only a few hand tools.
The dredge can be equipped with either the Honda GX160 engine and HP350 pump or the Honda GX200 engine and HP400 pump for additional power. The HP400 is a very efficient 3"x 2" pump with a high flow, "progressive bite" five vane impeller. This is the only pump in the industry designed specifically for the GX200 engine. We highly recommend this engine/pump package for anyone who dredges to greater depths or at higher altitudes. This dredge is equipped with our "sure-flow" coupler, which essentially, eliminates all surface rock jams. Our unique one piece jet/flare assembly not only reduces down time caused by rock jams, is extremely light, and outlasts conventional steel jets by four to five times!
This dredge uses the highly acclaimed "wave classifier" which is proven to greatly enhance fine gold recovery by eliminating the problems associated with processing low grade sand. The classifier develops a pulsing, or "jigging," action which prevents the dredged material from loading up under it. By shedding the low grade particles, the fine gold can drop out of suspension earlier and accumulate under the classifier where it is safe from the turbulence and disturbance caused by the larger rocks traveling through the sluice. The rear portion of the sluice box utilizes "Hungarian" riffles for maximum efficiency and the dredge is equipped with Nomad matting for the ultimate in fine gold recovery. No other 4" dredge even comes close.
