    Just wondering what brand and model pump you used on the 6" ? Keene p350? Proline hp450? etc.

    Built the 6" from scratch using a pair of 13hp Honda motors with shaft driven Keene pumps. I don't recall the model # of pumps, but they put out 400 gpm.

    In hindsight, it would have been easier and cheaper to buy a complete dredge, but like most people, I had to do it "my way". LOL

    I am like you, would rather build it myself even if it cost a little more in the long run. You just cant put a price on the satisfaction of doing it yourself
    The Keene p350 pumps are rated at 400gpm.

    Even though I sold my dredges before moving to Arizona it looks like my dredging days are not over as our mining association has just purchased a claim on the Hassayampa River. Looks like I may be building one more dredge pretty soon.
