    Grizzly gold trap explorer

    Heís definitely still in biz. Has had some problems with the shop that molds his bottom body for the sluices - which has delayed production and left him scrambling to handle everything.

    Don't send cash!!!
    So i ordered the Explorer and it arrived at my house about 2 weeks later. Just use your credit card and you should be safe to go. I hope this helped. Happy sluicing.
    Thanks for the update, Mass. and Kevin.

    Your right Mass., the Credit Card Co. would take care of their customer for the payment of an empty order if it came to that.

    We all get busy and have our share of problems butÖ If a business, (or Ďwanna beí business) wonít take a few seconds and or have the common courtesy to answer a potential customers email questions about the availability of their product.., I donít feel that they want my business very much and consequently, they won't get it.

    From all the past discussions about the GGTís poor customer service, poor to no follow ups, supposed setbacks beyond his control etc. etc. It seems that heís making all the wrong turns and decisions to get a business off the ground and moving. Another negative, (for me anyway) is the lack of a contact ph. #.

    Maybe his business has moved faster than he anticipated and he canít handle or donít want the stresses involved with most any startup business in the early stages.

    Looks like it couldíve been something with some management.

    "Start a sluice box company they said..... it will be easy they said.......

    Thouasands of orders ...super high demand.

    All you have to do is but a big yellow label on it and it will sell itself they said......."


    At this point I've heard it all.

    My idea is this, and hold on cause in my experience thiis seems to be a deep deep concept to grasp...


    IF YOU ARE SELLING SLUICE BOXES....... DON"T SAY THEY ARE FOR SALE UNLESS YOU ACTUALLY HAVE THEM MADE AND ON THE SHELF READY!!

    guess what happens when you do that?

    You make customers happy.

    I know Dennis wants happy customers. I see he made the wise choice to put out of stock on two of his boxes.

    I hope he gets some more made and ready for sale.

    Yup, me to. I'd like to buy one of the Explorer's if and when he gets more made up for sale and would ship it in a reasonable amount of time.

    Time will tell, I s'pose.

    Umm, last year I purchased an Explorer, the unit was shipped immediately with great follow up by the GGT folks. He came up with some great improvements to the BGT and put all of them into his products then (from what has been stated here) a supplier to his company did not make the components for him. He's a reliable person and put down his money to make a superb product, granted for a profit, but starting a business is not all peaches and cream especially when a critical supplier does not come through with what they contracted to do. Maybe we could give him a break as I'm certain he is not happy with what is happening to him. Just my 2 cents worth.....................63bkpkr

    I own one and love it. I use it only when I am visiting family in NorCal, not much in the way of rivers or streams here in the Imperial county. Paying with a CC eliminates all risk. Time may come into play but one has to remember that this is a Boutique Labor Of Love type business not a widget factory. My brother and I used it at the Bear River campground this past April, it does catch fines. If you are wanting a fluid bed to fool around with I do not see how you can go wrong.

    I bought the Motherlode GGT and had a few communication problems with Dennis(?) in the beginning but he made it all right and personally I wouldn't worry about him or his product!! Product is made well and works great and definitely does a good job on the fines. Well worth the wait if there is any due to production issues...…….as long as he LETS YOU KNOW.

    Yesterday afternoon I ordered a Snake River Products 'Expedition' from Kevin figuring I'd play around with it until the 'Titan" is available and then get one of those as well.

    This morning I recv'd. an email notice from Dennis at GGT that the 'Explorer" is apparently available once again, so I ordered one of them also as I'd been hoping to...

    Now, between a Gold Hog 'Highbanker', two 'sluices', the SNP 'Expedition' and the GGT 'Explorer' when they get here, I'm thinking I'm gonna have enough to keep me busy for awhile...!

    For some reason I have faith in this company, (GGT). Looks like they are up and running again according to their website so I plan on ordering an explorer on payday.
