This would also aid in dropping other Gold out of the flow and directly into the trap.

    I don't think you'll need to do this. A similar modification will come standard on the box.

    PS I saw a video today of the manufacturing process being tested. They are getting close to go-time!!

    I sure hope so Kevin and thanks for the info! I hope it will be made to slide in and out with ease to release any larger rocks that may get trapped behind it. Even a semi-hard rubber flap like what is used on a Highbanker/Dredge Combo to prevent blowouts while in Dredge mode would likely work better and allow the larger rocks to flow on through while still diverting the smaller flakes and pickers into the trap.

    Kevin...Would the Explorer model be the same as the Bazooka Prospector.
    I need to order something smaller than the Prospector but I'm not sure if the Nugget will be too small or if the Explorer is a step down in size compared to the Prospector. Anybody's help is much appreciated.

    UPDATE...didn't realize the images on their website were hyperlinked.
    Info sought & found & product ordered!

    Can I get a special order version with tighter classification, like 1/4" or 1/8"?

    they would have to re-tool to make that happen.

    It affects the through put of material and water therefore affecting the fluid dynamics.

    Too many options is part of what killed Bazooka

    BGTs were 3/8" OC. 1/4" OC is pretty small. The steel is 3/32 so the opening is close to a quarter inch anyways.

    There are several examples of temporary and permanent use of 1/4" mesh over the top of the grizzly bars.
    I would give it a try if you need 1/4" classification for fine gold recovery while maintaining the significant throughput of the GGT

    This is why I always felt this type of project was better suited to an established manufacturer...hate to say it, but kinda seems like we've traded one set of issues for another. Wish him the best and hope the kinks get worked out...would love to acquire one myself...but in retrospect it might have been better to resolve some of the issues before launching a website and taking orders.

    Sounds like the same. No response is familiar. Not good.

    I checked in with Dennis today. All is well, he's at the factory full time right now so not spending time online. First production run will be in the next few days!

    Kevin,
    Thank you for the Update on the GGT, there are many of us out here on the edge of our chairs waiting for reports on this new product. I suspect our high interest has something to do with a particular Illness we all share!.....................63bkpkr

    PS - A high success rate of the GGT product is wished for!!
    Out searching w/GMT & friend under my arm

    Did you receive an update via "Before the Rush"?
    I signed up for it at the time I placed an order and so far my inbox is empty.
