Hello,
After watching the videos I am ready to pull the trigger and order the Raptor. My Questions is, we live in Arizona and there is only a few claims we have water during certain periods of the year, so we will have to recirculate the unit.
Has anyone else tried this?
How will the mats perform with a lot of sediment?
Thanks for help.

The main question is... what pump are you going to use?

Plan on using a 2" trash pump, 150gpm.

I'm a real new guy here and know nuthing, but at 150gpm= 9000gph. How big is your recirculation tub?

We currently run 4-50 gallon Rubbermaid stock tanks. They are shorter tanks and make it easier to load materials.
Our main supply tank is 350 gallon.
I ordered the Raptor yesterday, see what happens when we test run it. I'm thinking at idle will be ok. I know I will probably need smaller pump.

Got the Raptor yesterday, all set up and recirculating. Excellent customer Service and product. Ran 5 buckets from one of our "secret spots" crazy how fine of gold it catches. Can't wait to get it in the field.
