#58 mini highbanker includes a mini highbanker, 4 legs, attwood 800 pump on bracket and 4ft 3/4" hose.
RDH Prospecting Mini-Recirculating Highbanker. The unit comes with 12volt 800-gph pump, 4ft Recirculating hose and a recirculating pump bracket. It has adjustable legs for easy slope control and black ribbed matting in the hopper for fast gold ID and a built in spaybar, down below is ribbed miner's carpet with Expanded metal. The expanded metal helps keep the gold in the box and pervent rocks from knocking it loose. These are made to fit in a plastic tubs. All you need is the tub,12V-lawn mower battery and a small pail to catch the waste rock. These are local items and help save on shipping. You can use the Mini-Recirculating Highbanker in the desert or on your favorite stream. The Mini-Recirculating Highbanker will help get the gold much faster than panning or drywashing. The sluice and hopper make 42" of classifying area. The box and hopper are 6"W x 21"L x 3 inch high sides it weigh's 10 lbs. The riffles and cage are aluminum , making it easier to use a magnet to remove the black sand build up. This Highbanker has a 12volt 800-gph pump for plenty of water volume. I now make this units with a built in spaybar. The sluice and hopper is a strong .080 gauge 5052 aircraft aluminum.

    Mini Highbanker

    I love this little machine. Works excellent. Easy to pack in and out with fast and easy set up time. I've retained more gold and increased my production over my stream sluice. I highly recommend this unit for anyone looking for a portable, reliable and easy to use highbanker.

    This is a well built unit. If your looking for something smaller that works great then this is it.

    Could be great...

    It's a well built product, however there are a couple of things that I personally think would improve it. First, the expanded metal is some what "cheap". It should be one more riffle longer if not the whole length of the carpet, and it is flat expanded metal which does not retain the fine gold as well.
    The other issue is the pump size. The 800 gph pump just does not cut it. When working areas with a lot of black sand and other heavy material, the pump just takes too long to clear the black matting. Unless you classify down to a quarter inch, the pump has a hard time moving larger rocks. I don't see the point in making a product that needs 1/4" classification when it has a built in 1/4" grizzly.
    It would be a great product if these simple issues would be addressed.

    bought this unit to play in the garage and so I could do a little prospecting when I visit Arizona. Fired it up last weekend to run a bucket of concentrate thru. the unit had good flow. Caught several flakes in the top portion and much more in the sluice part. Appears to work good, I'm pleased with the way it works.
