    Water Powered Trommel - Runs 1 Yard/Hr

    Check out this beast!! Can run 1 yard an hour, with a 1 inch pump. Hard to keep up with this machine. Water powered conveyor is in the works as well!! Hopefully by spring should have that all tuned in.

    I knew a guy that hired a kid to do it. The kid was like 15 or 16 and was a shoveling machine.

    Last time I went to Thermal City gold mine in North Carolina and bought a yard of pay dirt to feed my trommel, a teenager from the crew next to me pitched in to help me shovel while I was taking another break. Oh to be a teenager again


    Nowadays since we moved to Arizona I mostly just swing my detector and my wife helps me feed my small drywasher. Not that I need the help but I just like to watch her handle the shovel.
