Any pump suggestions for a highbanker?

I'm currently building a small highbanker. I Need suggestions on a bilge pump that is preferably battery powered. I'm also trying not to break the bank on this project. If you have any suggestions they are appreciated.

When you say highbanker you need to be more specific as to what size you're needing a pump for, with most highbankers 2" and up most small bilge pumps will not supply enough water for them to work correct and the battery will not last very long for an electric pump big enough for larger highbankers without someway to keep it charged.

More info please, I'm not saying you can't do this with a battery powered system, but a bilge pump, battery, and solar charger for your average highbanker would weight and cost as much or more than a small gas powered pump which would be what I would use if allowed in the area you would like to work.

I'm running a very small sluice box so i don't need any thing more than 500 gph on a pump, i haven't taken exact measurements yet on the sluice box.

Post a picture or a link to a sluice about the same size as yours, if it's small enough you may very well be able to run a battery pump using it and only at 500 GPH a small lawn mower battery would most likely run it for 3 or so hours, it may not do well for breaking up clay and such but should handle sand and small gravel.
