    Looks like it is in great shape! way nicer than mine came. That square frame is for sitting on a truck innertube. Use some bungee cords to hold it on. looks like there is somthing in the bundle of hose, power jet or suction nozzle? nothing like a new flexible piece of suction hose but you could probably put some gas and oil in her and get started with just what you have there.

    Yep! Suction nozzle. There's also like a hundred feet of hose in the tub. That stuff that folds flat. Not sure what it's for

    Where's a good place to get good flexible hose? And what's a normal good length to get?

    The blue hose wont have any application with this but will be good for your highbanker when you get it (and you will get it :-) )
    The piece in the back looks more like a jet log than a suction nozzle.
    For hose go to Alaska Mining & Diving over on Commercial St.

    I missed your newer picture! Nice looking machine & doesnt look like it's seen much use. Great snag!

    Any ideas of what size inner tube to use? I'm going to get one coming from Amazon today I think!

    The bigger the better just so long as it doesnt fall through the middle LOL, the smaller tubes are kind of tippy especially on this style dredge the weight distribution over the flotation changes dramatically wether the dredge is running or not. I found this video on youtube showing a dredge just like your new baby

    That looks exactly like mine! I ordered some bungee cords, some tie down ropes, and other little things today. I just need the snow to melt already!!! Only a few more months. Ugh!

    I just spent an hour and a half before running my kid to school shoveling another 6" of that crap this morning here in Kenai :-( Almost 300' of drive way and a parking area. Most of it fell in about 3 hours yesterday evening at about 32* then it dropped back to low 20s over night. Some heavy stuff. 1st real winter we have had in a while & I am so over it. New Polaris Ranger 6x6 sitting in a couple feet of snow with 1.4 miles on it & a new to me 2.5" dredge kinda like yours sitting in the garage & we finally get a winter...

    Right?? Same here in Anchorage. Just got a new side by side as well. Looks like we're both going to go insane.

    I'm feeling it here in California, My claim is fairly high altitude and next to impossible to access in winter.

    Tinted Snow, what SxS did you get?

    N-Lionberger, where is Crockett? I used to haul logs up in the Quincy area & down into Redding/Anderson. Was born in Redding but grew up in Klamath Falls Oregon. worked in the woods all over southern OR & north east CA.
