GREEN TROMMEL

Recommended Posts

I have been looking at one of those but how long is it supposed to hold up? Hey does anyone have that Camel Mountain Goat mini trommel? Is it worth a flip or just something else to mine the new miners with?

Those are turnbuckles on the chains supporting the sluice box, not springs.

I assume so you can raise or lower the angle of the sluice box.

It should have guards over the pulleys & belts.

Good way to get a hand mangled, if you ever got one caught between the belt & pulley.

I would wager on a hobby scale it does a better job of classification than the average highbanker.

Spray bars are steel, not PVC pipe.

Besides turning the power pulley, the motor should have a water pump on it.

So, you don't have to run 2 motors to operate it.

With a stronger frame, belt guards, water pump & a better box.

It would do a good job, for what it is.

I had one of the first MT Goat Trommels, it is cheaply built and the rollers soon frezzeup, I replaced the rollers with inline skate wheels, ground down to fit.

If you have an unlimited supply of clean water it works well for cleanup of concentrates, otherwise like all recirularlating equiptment it soon chokes the pump down with trash, it will not process the amount of material claimed without clean water.

I appreciate those who take the time to develope their own equip,

but, I must agree with the rest of y'all. This one needs more time and thought

in developement. I have seen many dif versions of portable trommels.

I'll give this one a "C".

I have to pass on this one. boorb
