So I have heard a lot of different info on how often to do clean outs. Some say they go all day and just clean out once while others clean out every hours or so. I am curious as to what the manufacture suggests? Obviously if you have a ton of black sand you would probably want to clean out more but I am just wondering generally speaking how often would you recommend cleaning out. Thanks
So we are now half way into March and on your blog you were hoping that the highbanker kits might be shipping out. Got any status on them or can you tell us anything about them. I am holding off on buying or building a highbanker to see what you have first. I have a a 1 1/4" keene/honda pump ready to rock this baby with my prospector model. Will it work with your kit? Any info?. I am hoping it is a nice durable kit that you can repeatedly shovel into like most larger highbankers, and not like something I have seen on youtube for mods to their bazookas.
All I can tell you is the Prospector highbanker kit will be unveiled at the ICMJ Mining Summit in April. It's durable, and can take a beating. Some of the mods on youtube aren't too far off the mark, there is only so many ways to skin a cat.
What is the current fullfilment time on a 36" Prospector?
The mods I have seen on youtube seem to have the gravel pile up and you still have to move it by hand. But I might not have seen them all. I was thinking more like a trad. highbanker where you can just shovel, and shovel and shovel. Will my pump work with this kit?
Average Fulfillment the last two weeks on 36" Prospectors is 12 days to your door. Those and all Sniper models are selling twice as fast as we can produce them. We're working on a few things to gain efficiency in production, but probably won't have it all worked out until the end of next month.
I have used my sluice about 20 times. I run 10 to 20 buckets per day and have never done a clean up except for the one at the end of the day. The closest I ever came was a 3/4 trap of black sand. Usually it is less than 1/4 black sandSo I have heard a lot of different info on how often to do clean outs. Some say they go all day and just clean out once while others clean out every hours or so.

1. If the grizzly is backing up you can run the sluice a bit steeper, that'll do the trick.I thought prior to owning a BgT, that water flow may be the largest hurdle when running the sluice..but it seems my grizleys Always get backed up with rocks and pebbles, forcing me to manually wipe away the "excess buildup" 2-3 times per 5Gal bucket. Am. I doing something incorrectly? Am I losing gold by pushing the rocks away by hand?? That traps sure fills quickly....
