This New 4” dredge is specifically designed to be lighter and more portable than our standard model. The smaller, lighter, more compact 4” is ideal for packing into remote areas and is also great for quick one day outings.

The sluice box has been shortened by 8” for a total of 40” in length. The new sluice is a single stage box, however with the woven wire classifier, the long rubber damper, miners moss, rubber ribbed matting and the latest riffle designs, you will not be disappointed in the fine gold recovery. The lighter sluice and flare weights around 30 lbs, making it easy to throw it over your shoulder and pack it in. The new float and frame on much smaller and lighter only 40 inches wide and 60” long and complete weighs less than 50 lbs. The dredge is just the right size to fit in between the wheel wells of a mini pickup or inside a small SUV.

The dredge comes the  the 6.5 hp Honda, our P180 pump and the  T80 air compressor and the air snorkel. The Dredge comes with 20 feet of suction hose and the oversized non-clogging power jet and jet flare. This is a lot of dredge in a little package. (* We do have the standard 4” Dredge if you request it - $3499)

KEENE 4” Ultra Mini Dredge

* Our best-seller and my favorite!!! Why? Because these units are lighter and yet still have the power and diameter to move gravel! One man can handle this and it’s easier to maneuver than most other units.  The smaller units don’t suck as much gravel and by comparison are still relatively cumbersome, so if you want something that moves a goodly amount of dirt for a one or two man operation and yet light weight, this unit is for you!



Compressor Included!
