Looks great Kosoca. After using the trommel for a couple seasons did you find anything you would change? What did you find is the average yards per hour you can run with it? Did you end up putting a grizzly on it or are you washing all rocks in it? Do you have a lot of dense clay on your claim? If so are you washing the clay or leaving it out?

Planning on building myself a bigger trommel this Fall/Winter so curious how you like yours.  I'd be happy with around 30 yards per hour or so. Lot's of clay on my claim with gold in the first inch or so of it so I'll be washing some of the top layers of the clay so I'll be putting a lot of scrubber bars inside the trommel and will be going with a longer barrel than what is commonly used.
