With either a gas or 12v pump setup? Looking for something more portable than a reverse helix trommel. How about material with some clay in it? Does the hopper break it up? Thanks for any information.

As I recall Doc had a video running in recirculating mode that I watched using a kiddie pool.

This 12v “Gold Hog Mini Excavator” setup works on clay with approximately 48 gallons of recirculating water. Wet classify your "pay material" to 1/2 inch, pre-soak before running if possible, run, catch and and rerun if sampling of sluiced material indicates losses. A flood chamber with a 1/4 inch punch plate and moss at the top of the sluice helps to break up the clay and hold the pay. If you hear clay balls hitting the water in the rear capture bucket, adjust your feed rate as necessary.
See Photos.

AZ,
Did you ever settle on a solution for a 12v or gas pump? Assumed you were looking for desert application.
