YouTube - Highbanker sluice

This fellow really got me thinking... Highbanker conversions on a sluice doesn't have to be expensive or complicated, If it works it works! My main concern -because I'm really quite lazy-  is weight and how easy it is to carry. So I got to thinking how you could improve upon this guy's design. The wash box/hopper seem awfully cumbersome to me. Instead of using a wooden box why not take a 5 gal bucket, lay it on its side, then cut the top half or 1/3rd off. Lay down a BBQ grill or some other sort of classifier, fix on some spray bar and wham! Bob's your uncle!

here's some primitive drawings.

just finishing it up today, not too shabby for a first and sloppy try. I'm using electric pumps (one 2000 GPH and one 1750 GPH pump) but they don't really flow enough when they are both hooked up to the same battery. Makes for a good demo though.








and Here was an unlikely find for the location I was looking in, on my last day out (good way to end the season Cheesy)
