alzathoth: how wide is the G1? I already know the G2 is 12" wide. thank you.
djpitr: Very nice done
The kid down the Street: How much do you want for one
Jackpotslinger: The website is down. How do we buy these now? Any ideas?
Scott Sammers: O:key!
captkav: Got one ordered right now. Should be here soon...I'll try to video a demo
of it from my claim here in southern New Mexico.. I hate dry washing...I
always seem to get more gold with my old Jobe Highbanker...just gotta haul
my finds to the river. I still use an old dry washer for sampling. I also
ordered the S1 finisher. It all looks like a great design (even their
pans). I'll get back with a video or at the very least another detailed
Laura Jean: Excellent! Very informative video.
rcsupercubbuilder: WOW!! it probabaly weighs less than the pump.Does it come with the pump and
What is the size of hose from the pump?
R.C.M. Enterprises: We are using the G1 as the shop power sluice and love the way it works.
Lightweight and easy to clean up. Super fine gold recovery.
PilbaraProspector: Joel, I struggle to get the slopes right on the G1. Ive had to raise it for
a recycle of water. Any advice on how to tell if the angles are right?
seems to pack up with rocks very easily.
MrBga78: it will not work clay material
Joel Farmer: Yes, both ~
Joel Farmer: 5 HP / 2" pump, running on idle ~
otacon1994: this is prbly the best highbanker drdger combo that is out on the market so
far. unfortunately it doesnt give enough info on exactly what you need to
get this up and running. i mean it tells you a 2.5 hp pump 40-45 gallons
but thats about it ...how many hoses? how many clamps? what should be the
water speed im dredging? etc..etc.. more info would b e appreciated for us
thestocksguy: I called this guy up, and he was busy with vacuum-forming the platens, but
had time to satisfy my 2 questions. 1. Why wouldn't my new 1' X 4' sluice
box be On-Par with his Machines' output ? 2. Why couldn't I make a
Vac-Board and make his Formula Higbanker and sell them on E-bay ? His
reply, unchallenging, was to try and use a 'conventional' box against his,
AND, 2. If I could make one of his boards as well and as cheaply, then more
power to me ! Paul T.
jacobgp1: HOW BOUT TELLING US HOW YOU MADE IT
Joel Farmer: It never sems to be a problem ~
Casey Duncan: I like the principle of the machine. Not worried about losing nuggets. If
it's so big it won't pass through a 1/2" grizzly then my metal detector
will pick it up real quick when I check the tailings. Biggest problem so
far I've had is getting all that really super fine stuff, just blows out
the sluice. I think this might help me get most of what's in the ground
which is fines, not nuggets.
SuperTomcatUk: The moment you stopped and did not show the gold finds you lost my
interest... up to then I was impressed as most people show half their video
about the trip there or the family.... we do not care.... we want to see
what the machine can do!
Joel Farmer: Does not come with a pump. Pump can be 1" - 1.5" - 2.0" 2.5 HP Pump is best!
mike94560: No grizzley? You can keep it.
pancakepie2: Ever see what happens to plastic left out in the sun? Just imagine the
looks of this after a year left outside in the harming effects of the sun
and whammo! A nice pile of degraded oil. Plastic....nice and cheap if taken
care-of, otherwise, not so good.
ThePCpoet: Nice video and sluice. It would be nice if someone made a plastic
highbanker for around 250 bucks, however I know the market is limited when
it comes to buyers and therefore the costs per unit is higher if a business
is to make a profit. This highbanker may do a better job than a compatible
metal sluice and is relatively cheaper, but it's still a very expensive bit
of molded ABS plastic. For example, the black plastic mixing tub next to it
is only a few bucks because so many are sold.
Joel Farmer: That is a fact~
rj32: If you take care of your stuff, then you dont have to worry about it. I
have seen the G1, and I know how sturdy it is, you would have to leave it
out in the desert 24 hours a day for several years before there would be a
problem. If you just have it sitting around in the sun, then you are not
using it enough. I'll buy it off ya, the thing is practically bullet proof.
daveannierd1: @goldrushpro $1125us to get this to new zealand,i want the G1 but not that
Joel Farmer: I do not own USProspector anymore - I doubt $50 dollars is right though...
Nathan Bierschied: i went to the website and went to the check out on the g1 and it said the
shipping was 50 dollars is that right for shipping in the united states?
Tab Wyo: The grizzly is on the bottom of the first tray. Or didn't you watch the
Joel Farmer: Call 559-281-4202 ( Rick )
charles dilmore: losing all the big nuggets. what a waste...... install a larger grizzly
smartstuff2buy: how much water is pumped thru this in the video? and what hp?
TechOverload99: I ordered one about a week ago, can't wait to get it and put it to use. I
had to choose between this or the Gold Hog, both are nice but I like the
portability of the G-1. Hope it lives up to expectations.
tappakeggaday1: + it seems that running the shovel over the rifles would be doing about the
same thing a clay ball would and thats knock the gold out of the riffle,
looks like more care could be taken and might lose some good pickers there
NowLifeStarts: What is the reason to use a high banker instead of a sluice? Is the high
banker used when there is not enough water flow for a sluice or does it
just work better than a sluice?
johnk437: Anyone of you guy's use this unit yet? Trying to decide between this unit
or a Keene 2 inch . Any comments please. Thanks John.
johnk437: This looks like a really cool highbanker. Anyone used this one yet??
tappakeggaday1: the only thing i can see that can be upgraded on this would be instead of
running the shovel to get the rocks off would be to have a flip handle on
there when the rocks pile up on the grate lift a handle to flip them off
Joel Farmer: golfingrobert, Nope! It's one of the least expensive highbankers on the
Nathan Bierschied: bought it today and thats what it was i guess lol only paid 625 for the g1
boaraxa: yea i thought the same u should chcek my new 1
Outdoorsman631: wouldnt smaller rocks get stuck in the larger riffles in the hopper??
pashka0843: In this one u will lose the bigger nuggets. I thought of a better method
to recover 100% of ALL gold. Its very portable. Sorry I cant say what it is
charles dilmore: losing all the big nuggets. what a waste...... install a larger grizzly.
and I hate purple, make a pink or blue or green one, then I might get one.
TheGolddigger2: cant wait too get one i will let you now how it goe,s
