    You'll do good with the Bazooka, it is a great product. Like you said the clean up is the best thing, no carpeting, moss, riffles, etc just quick and easy.
    Good luck and stay safe out there.

    Have a great weekend, Chris

    Tridge, again great pictures and gold the first time out with it. Your continued inputs are appreciated. How did the Keene next to you do as compared to your gold take, any ideas??. Have you been working your spot for awhile with other methods?

    Just as soon as I recover well enough I've a place in mind way out in the mountains I want to get too with a Super Mini, need to purchase it first!................63bkpkr

    Yea been working this spot for about a week or so and have been using the A52 and a small Angus MacKirk prior to getting the BGT..honestly I really don't like the A52, my Angus most definitely catches much smaller fines than the keene. And from what I saw today I believe the BGT will also hold the fines better as well! Just my unbiased honest opinion and going from my experience using all three sluices.We are working a hole and down about 3 feet, have run into cemented hard pack and having troubles getting enough material to run now.Just having to break it up a little at a time! No sign of bedrock yet, but the gold is most definitely getting bigger the deeper we go.

    Glad you guys are getting the gold! It's even better that you get to put it through your brand new sluice! Hope y'all get that hard pack broke up. Looks like a great time out there. I'll be hoping i can someday find a spot like that!

    I'm interested in how much more efficient the BGT is than the A52. I'm trying to improve my efficiency moving material when I'm down on the river. Before I jump in and purchase a BGT, I just wanted to hear from others. Thanks for your review in this thread, tridge!

    For cleanup, the BGT is a far and away winner. I really like the idea of not classifying with the BGT, but the videos I've seen the grizzlies are cleaned off after every shovel-full. The size of the material I'd be running would include rocks up to softball size. If I'm stopping to remove larger rocks from the GBT every shovel, is it still going to be much faster than the A52 classified?

    Thanks in advance!

    What is typically not discussed when using the bazooka is you get the advantage of washing off the softball size rocks in the bgt as it rolls down to the grizzly. How many of those size rocks do you put down the keene? My guess is none, I would be afraid of what the rock would knock out of the riffs. The bgt is simply the best for most applications period. Make sure you size the bgt for your intended use. I run 2 to 4 five gallon buckets through and end up the one 14" gold pan of cons. Using a super mini bgt. The only disadvantage is you will not end up with alot of cons. If this is a disadvantage. Happy hunting.

    I don't like carrying dirt home from the river if I can pan it out. I classify down to 1/4 or 1/2 usually... the larger rocks get washed in the bucket anyway before the sluice... I'm not worried about cons, only gold! I think I will have to try the BGT.

    The softball sized rocks will self clear if you run the BGT at the slope they show in the company's demo video on their website. Most prospectors run it waaay too flat since they are used to other sorts of sluices. Then they have to clear the grizzly manually.
