    First run... Bazooka Gold Trap 48" Miner

    Hit the creek today with good buddy Aufisher, brought my new 48" bgt Miner out for the first time and had a blast! As big as the 48" Miner is we had it set up with ease and running great in about the same time it takes with our prospector series and good flow was not a prob. We dug a nice hole to bedrock, scraped cracks and ran a good amount of material faster then ever with the Miner... left it in the water for the day doing one clean out at quitting time. It ran flawlessly and was eating full 5 gallon buckets of material in less than 30 seconds! Super pleased and impressed after day one out with the Miner Next time will bring the wheelbarrow and cut a path through cobble..
    Big thanks AU for bringing home the take to clean up and thanks again for helping me drag the beast to shore for clean out, couldn't have done it without you and can't wait to get back out soon for more gold n good times buddy, awesome day

    The 48 will eat a 5 gallon in no time flat. Not as fast as the miner but you can still do it, maybe half a bucket at a time.
    I put a pickup truck beds worth of dirt through mine yesterday. Havent touched my gallon of cons yet though.
    Clear creek was up, but I don't really care anymore with the Bazooka, its not scared of fast water, and the higher water made it easier to dig in the hard pan.

    That miner is a sexy mo fo though. It should come with wheels though heheh <3

    From the pic it looks like it takes up about half the creek..... wheelbarrow loads should make for impressive results. Waiting for the money shot.

    More nice lode ending up in the creek. Gotta love that Black gold! Don't throw these away folks! Might need to switch to a green pan! HTD looks like your big miner catches small gold too! Thanks again!Click image for larger version.

    Right on AU, looking good! Thanks and nice work with clean up, diggin that black gold and definitely confidant in fine gold recovery with the Miner after seeing the pan shot, pretty darn impressive considering the volume of water and flow speed we had pumping through it. The 48" miner is quite large but still practical for a couple guys looking to make quick work of a mountain of material. Hard to describe how hungry it was running but we were dumping full buckets on the plate and as soon as we could set the empty bucket down it was ready for another... Bazookafest with Miner and split the take anyone!!?? A spot for all to come and dig is in the works...

    Way to go! By the looks of that beast, it may be nearly impossible to overload.
