Hi,

I would like to know the stacker dimensions and if the header box can be removed.

Thanks,

Bob

Yes, the header box can be removed, but just curious as to why. Are you looking at a transport issue? It is held on with two bolts and easily comes off. But if it's a transport issue I don't think that will reduce the size much. I don't have a unit with me, but it is roughly 10" wide, and trays are roughly 30" long.

Hi,
my primary purpose would be to use it as additional sluice at the end of a trommel. The trommel I'm looking at only has a 40x12 sluice. I thought I would replace their expanded metal with outdoor carpeting with one of the hog matt (not sure which one), then remove the header box, place the stacker at the end for additional length. I know I would need to make some minor adjustments but was trying to figure out a way to have my cake and eat it too.

Plus I still could use it as a normal highbanker for sampling and running cons When not in production mode. It's just an idea I had.

Bob

I'd rather see you use something like the Viper.
It's about 12" wide and your exiting slurry could dump in the the header box or into the RRR like is shown in the below. The tailings sluice is actually a monster hog without the header box.

I don't think the gold hog would be a good choice.

The one thing I failed to mention is that the trommels sluice oscillates back and fore, the speeds can be adjusted. Would this make any difference In your recommenation? Also, would using then new Yukon mat under their expanded metal make sense? This is a small production with max production on a good day of 8 tons per hour. Plus, the material is feed mechanically into a 2" Griizzly over a hopper dumping on to a conveyor which feeds the trommel.

Thanks for your feedback

Seriously, if I was running 8 tons per hour several days a week. I would own 3 different 12 inch wide sluices x 12 feet long. I would add enough water to keep the slurry thin and clean running 2 of the sluices at a time. And have the ability to divert the slurry from each of the sluices so that I could clean each one of them each hour. Just my 2 cents worth and probably not even worth that much. Best of luck to you.

I kind of need to see a picture at this point before making another suggestion.
What I'd REALLY like to see is a video of it running so I could get a better feel of the GPH and water depth running through the sluice.

I don't have any video but how do u post pics? FYI, my first thought was to just use the conveyor dumping into a monster hog, but mobility might be an issue or me over thinking LOL.

The GPH for the trommel is: 3950 and the oscillating sluice is 150 pulse per min.

Let me know I can get pics to you.

Bob

Here are some pic's. A few notes, if I go down the trommel route the one I would get doesn't have the water tank and dewatering screw. I would also have them make some modifications so I can adjust the pitch of the sluice, change the matting (Not sure which ones) and have the run off go into your Viper. My alternate route is just go with the conveyor and have it drop into either the Viper or Monster Hog.

What is nice is that the material is prescreen to 2" or smaller as it enters the hopper before it enters the trommel or one of your high bankers.

Bob
