The Proline 2" gold dredge has redefined
the role of the small suction dredge. Our latest developments have resulted
in a smaller, and more portable dredge, with increased suction power
and features normally found only on larger dredges. This dredge is now
powered by our all new HP 100 pump, direct coupled to the new Honda
GXH50 2.1 horse power 4-cycle engine. This combination is incredibly
powerful, capable of producing well over 100 gallons per minute and
twice the pressure of our previous pump. The Honda is extremely quiet
and smooth running, with nearly twice the fuel economy of the 2-cycle
engines, and of course, it eliminates the need to calculate the gas
and oil mixture ratios of 2-cycle engines. This engine is equipped with
the ever popular low oil shutoff.
Our HP 100
pump is manufactured with the same quality and features found on our
larger pumps. One unique feature of this pump is that it has been equipped
with a second discharge port on the side of the pump, sometimes called
a "flusher port." This port supplies water pressure to run a flusher
nozzle for serious dredging. Because we take the small dredges just
as seriously as the larger ones, we want the small dredge to be able
to clean out the same cracks and crevices that would otherwise be passed
Proline 2" Gold Dredge -
"Now lighter and more powerful!"
The recovery system has been completely redesigned
as well. Due to recent changes in the pump and jetting system on this
dredge, the suction power has dramatically increased. More powerful
suction means that the water and dredged materials pass through the
dredge with greater velocity than before, therefore the wave classifier
and riffle profile had to be adjusted as well. The increase in water
velocity, believe it or not, actually improved gold recovery.
This dredge uses Hungarian riffles, which are designed
to develop a strong vortex or "eddy" when subjected to higher water
speed. This dredge builds a stronger vortex behind the riffles to hold
the values better, plus it doesn't have the tendency to load up on low
grade material that other dredges have, leaving the riffles unshrouded
to do their job more effectively. We still use "Nomad" matting in this
dredge, but now it is used for the full length of the sluice box. This
combined with our unique one-piece classifier and riffle design has
resulted in a greatly simplified sluice box and easier cleanups.
As before, the pontoons are actually used as part
of the frame, eliminating the need for a heavier conventional frame.
A knockout rod is supplied for cleaning rock jams that occur at the
power jet, and it actually stays on the dredge when not in use. It is
always there when you need it. Through these recent improvements we
were able to shed a few pounds, while actually making the dredge stronger.
If you are planning on purchasing a small dredge, we suggest that you
compare our features and quality with every other dredge on the market.
We strongly feel that no other 2" dredge compares.
