    Russau, get that installed and let us know how it's working in your dredge! What mats did you get and are you running a o/u?

    hahaha! this is in my 2 inch dredge im putting together, mostly out of things i have in my garage that i need to get out!. it wont be ready untill sometime in spring. my O/U 4 inch dredge still has the Veranda carpet in it,that John got me! currently the 2 inch sluice has a ABS crashbox sluice. im thinking of makeing a flaired sluice for it to help settel the cons faster than the crashbox design.it is going to use the suction nozzel because the 2 incher dont suck very deep.and while makeing the flaired sluice for it, it may as well be a O/U sluice for better fines retention!i try to always have various mats/riffels/setups for different strerams that i go to. if i were dredgeing only 1 or 2 streams, i probly wouldnt need all the variations. BUT it keeps a ole dog doing something during the winter! if this winter thing lasts much longer, ill probly have every combination for this dredge,I.E. jet,flaired sluice,crashbox,etc.

    That four might be harder to move around, but bending over and using that suction nozzle will wear your back out. Good health and great hunting.

    yep your 100% correct,BUT this is made primarily for the Arkansa River in Colorado. itll be used in the shallows to capture the fine gold that is very abundant.ill still bring my 4 with me(as always)and in the shallows ill be laying/sitting down because of my bad back anyway! like i said before this is mostly from items that i have in my garage that i need to move out or do something with instead of letting it sit around getting in the way. i may end up selling it all if my back dont get up-2-speed after this summer! i keep telling my wife this may be the last summer, but this time it just may be!

    Omni im going to use a 1/4 screen over my first GH mat and itll be the UR mat,Razorback,scrubber, then repeat the sequence untill i run our of room. thats on top the lower section(under) will have some genuine Veranda "Hoser" carpet,directly from the man himself! i relly like the Veranda carpet after running it in my 4 for the upper and lower sluice in the Arkansa River 2 years ago!it saved lots of fine gold. i would just like to see how much better the GH mating will do!and if my back holds up and i get enough fine gold, well maybe ill be calling Doc for another order for the 4........time will tell.

    Oakveiw2, if caught, i dont think the state of Cal. would like me very much bringing in 2 dredges and sucking up the westcoast gold!but thankyou for the offer! maybe if you get out to Wyoming/Colorado this summer(July)(Sept) we could ponder on that offer over a cold beer!and im sure there would be other libations around the camp somewhere!!!

    Probably won't make it out there this year, but would gladly buy you a beer or two if I did. Love to hear some stories, I remember seeing some videos of you and Hoser and some others having a great time dredging, drinking and eating some pretty good food... All the best with the new rig....

    Rus, I'm about 99.9% sure we are going to be moving to Denver next year. It will be September/October time so if your still dredging in '15 maybe at times we could meet up and I could help you get your dredge moved around so you could still get that nasty dirty gold!
    Hey on your u/c section, are you running strait veranda or do you also have expanded?

    Sorry to hear about your bud, but you will always have the memories of your trip doing the things that you like to do. I am afraid future generations may never get that opportunity.

    Russau please rethink you may configuration you really want to go from a scrubber-razorback-ur or just do all river hog w/riffles cut if in a dredge you want the mats so they are acting as a finisher at the end
