    Keene A51A or Keene A52?

    I'm curious as to which sluice is better? Currently I am working a medium sized creek with a decent water flow...Not too concerned with mobility, just want to catch as much of the yellow stuff as possible.. A51A or A52

    If you are not worried about the weight or flow go with the bigger A52. You'll be able to move more dirt.

    You did not say where you were working and what the gold found there is like. Here in Colorado, where I am, it is small. I now leave my Keene home and use a LeTrap. Please give a few more details and some of the great folks here will be able to give you better answers.

    You will save money not having to buy extra buckets and classifiers. You will double or triple your gold take. Paid mine off in 4 months.

    Chiming in...get the Bazooka. Faster, easier, more gold... Really! Been running one for the last year and a half or so. Used it well over 100 times in a variety of situations. I no longer use my plastic drop riffle sluice or the metal sluice it replaced back in the day. The Bazooka rocks!
