    I would like to see the math on how processing more material in a day. Won't get more gold.

    Having a washer running on it's own be it spinning a fan or puffing a bellows allows you to dig prep and feed much more material in the same amount of time.

    It has nothing to do with lack of manual labor. Its the ability to apply labor in more efficient ways.

    Can't dig or feed all that fast while your stuck there cranking away.

    Can't sell gold thats in the ground still. I'll deal with motor issues. I'll run my puffer by hand when the ground is worth it. For the sake of old timey nostalgia...no thanks.

    I think it depends on the spot your working - I can sling mine over my shoulder and hike in -- would be a lot harder with gas motor or heavy battery.
    I also have a 12v Keene and love it when working close to a road.
    I agree a motor = more gold.
    Cheers Mike

    I have found that a 1997 ford ranger wiper motor does the best. I used a rheostat switch to up/ down the speed. works with gears, pulley or arm.. great for jig fishing also. built several. Always used the 97 model,, was a copy from an electrical engineer friend.
