I have done a little panning and sluicing and wondering if there is a better way. I am just a recreational guy who likes to camp and have something to do.
Does anyone have any experience with the Keeene 2" backpack dredge? I like its portability (65lbs)and price (about $1300). I am not interested in anything bigger beacause I don't want to lug anything bigger around. They offer a powerjet nozzle or a suction nozzle and I have do idea of the difference. I live in Southeast, AK and there isn't anyone to talk to.
So are there any likes or dislikes people would like to air on this unit or other similar sized dredges? Also there is the 2" Proline Dredge. Do you think the sluice would get clogged up to easliy since you aren't classifying and just running a little water through them?
