    Depends on what you are running.They work great on a highbanker but not good on a dredge over 2inch.A dredge pump such as Keene or Proline deliver a lot of water under high pressure hence the high price.I run a trash pump on my 2 inch dredge highbanker combo because it was affordable but any larger of a unit you need the power of a good dredge pump.

    Vaquero44, If you go look at this post: (would this pump work on a small dredge) its about 1/2 way down this page and Strick talks about his setup... O'l Blue Strick's 3" dredge has more than enough suction using a 3" Clear water pump. I have seen this dredge get some great gold!!! There is alot of info on these pumps if you look back at the posts in this forum.......Chris
