Those of us with any experience know how valuable a product like this is, not only as a production unit, but also as a tool for sucking out those under water bedrock cracks and potholes, so why spend $250 - $300 on 2 units you have to pack in and out, when one will do the job of 2?
Use it in "Sniper" mode for getting into those pot holes and submerged bedrock cracks, or in the "Prospector" production mode for testing, cleaning out under boulders and general use in river beds, and especially excavation holes, etc to get all those values the shovel leaves behind.

You can't get to all the gold by shovelling alone, especially in bedrock cracks, under boulders and the bottom of pot holes where the shovel can't get to.
In fact, even the simple act of shovelling causes gold to be driven deeper to the bottom and into cracks and divots where the shovel can't go, therefore, the only way is to use a suction device to siphon it right up off the bottom just like a vacuum cleaner.
But, mechanized dredging in many areas is either illegal, or can take weeks to get written permission after submitting the complicated paperwork. A recent California Court has all but banned mechanized dredging. So where does that leave you?
Our basic "MotherSucker Prospector" Hand Dredge, with a 1 1/4" tip, is designed to suck up those elusive values on the up stroke by using simple "non-mechanical" suction and on the down stroke, pump those values into a recovery bucket via a lightweight "lined" 6' flex hose [ not a cheap unlined "Poop Tube" as others are using.
We use durable white PVC pipe, it is less reactive to temperature and sunlight.
It`s light weight, and comes with a time-proven leather seal for long life and superb suction. It's very easy to use, and it's long length means you can get deeper with less stooping which equals less fatigue.
If you do not own one of these hand dredges, you are losing gold, and probably lots of it, or working much too hard for what you are getting.
You will wonder how you ever got along without it.
Please check with your local regulations before using.
