Highbanker & Dredge Combo Product Information

Pro Zig Zag Highbanker

$810.00 USD [+ shipping]

(North & South America pricing only. For other International orders please contact us.) Weight: 30 lbs. Total dimensions: 16″ wide (at legs) 30″ tall (working height with raised legs). Sluice box:  34″ long, 12″ wide,  4.5″ tall

Set up:

Raise high banker upper top and arms to lock into place. Next raise middle section and arms to lock. Raise high banker and adjust legs to correct height and angle for sluice. Raise high baker from front to back and level from side to side. Hook up water supply and adjust water flow with shut off valve.

How the Pro Zig Zag Highbanker works:

Material is placed into the upper hopper, where the spray bars wash the material. The material then drops down onto the grizzly area. The classified material will drop down and the washed rocks will fall out. From there the washed material drops into the  top of the sluice box and gets washed through the riffles. Processing a five gallon bucket should take about 4-5 minutes.

 Gold Hunter Highbanker/Dredge Combo

$730.00 USD [+ shipping]

(North & South America pricing only. For other International orders please contact us.) Weight: 50 lbs. Total dimensions: 18″ wide (at legs) 43″ tall (working height with raised legs). Sluice box:  48″ long, 12″ wide,  4.5″ tall

How the Gold Hunter works:

As a Highbanker: material is placed into the hopper where the spray bars wash the material before being classified through the grizzly area and dropping into the sluice box. Once the material enters the sluice box it gets washed through the riffles capturing the gold.  Processing a five gallon bucket should take about 4-5 minutes. As a Dredge configuration: simple rest (and secure) the dredge hose end on the cradle at the foot end of the hopper, allowing the material to get “pushed uphill” prior to settling down into the sluice box where the material is washed through the riffles and captures the gold.

Just want to say Great piece of equipment, had mine all summer, and just love it. haven’t had any issues with it at all, took a bit to find my happy flow and angles, but once I got that figured I was catching like a trophy fisherman. :) its only my first year of prospecting, did a lot of research on the high bankers and this one by far was the most durable, the leg support H beam set up is as heavy duty as they get. Love it. in the process of refining the grizzly to suit the gold im getting here in alberta, Canada. Ive been classifying to 12 mesh to get the results im happy with, only because here is such fine gold. slow water flow where the over riffle is hitting half way between riffles and a slight angle on all levels. :) Great work guys, keep up the great work. now I just need a small tromel I can set up top to feed the high banker. hint hint. ;) Thanks again for the hard work and design.

Hello,
I was wondering if your highbanker is fitted for a 1 1/2″ pump? I live in Golden,BC and if I want to use a pump it has to be 1 1/2″ or smaller or else I have to get a water permit which is another $500!! :(

Reply

admin September 19, 2012 at 9:01 am

Hi Basil, The inlet for the highbanker is 1-1/2″ and you’ll need nothing less than 50 Gallons per minute. So it sounds like that should work for you! Would you like me to get you a quote on shipping?

Team,
I have to tell you we’ve had a great summer since purchasing the Zig-Zag high banker. We ran across Dan demoing it at the Burnt River GPAA outing and we took the unit home he was demoing. Needless to say, we’ve worked our butt off moving material. I’d like to inquire about a few things that I may consider in the off season wrt modification on the high banker.

First of all, as we usually find ourselves processing the material from a bucket that we perch on the front portion of the banker, it would be great if you could fabricate a platform that attaches to the riffle bolts and hangs off, or somehow attaches, to the top hopper. This would allow you to be able to rest the bucket on top of the hopper and not have to always balance it. Usually by wife and I try to target 80 buckets in a day and to be honest at the end of the day we feel as if we’ve been hit by a truck and are extremely tired. This would absolutely help on the fatigue factor. Not to mention you could use the platform to store the hand rake we use to rake rocks off the grizzly.

Another potential fabrication would be for some sort of bucket caddy or platform to hold the bucket at the back end of the grizzly to capture larger rocks that have been washed but eliminated from the process via the grizzly. In today’s times it’s important we try to reclaim the area in which we have worked and managing your waste material is a big part of that. We usually spend a lot of time trying to keep the bucket at the right angle to catch rocks. But as rocks fall it is difficult to maintain a level area for the bucket to rest.

Like I say we’ve had a great summer with the machine but a few tweaks or accessories would make it a better device to work with. I’m more than happy to chat about you with this if my note is not intuitive.

On an unrelated issue, I bought a 5 HP Champion 2” Trash pump and I have a hell of a time getting it primed when we are set up on a hill. We are well below the specifications on the pump head heighth so I’m puzzled as to how to address this issue. Are you aware of any secrets or tricks that can help us out. Someone mentioned a “foot valve” at the pump to keep the water in the hose? Any insight you can provide would be helpful.

JR

How big of pump is required to do a very good job on your Zig Zag Highbanker, and would you supply one for an additional price? and what then would be the total finial price shipped to Caldwell, Idaho 83605

Zig Zag with pump? without pump

Reply

admin October 29, 2011 at 11:54 am

Hey Don!
We recommend 100 GPM pump for the high banker. And good news, we manufacture in Boise, ID right off Victory Rd. so there wouldn’t be any shipping charges if you just wanted to pick it up. Best deals on pumps can be found at Harbor Freight or D&B Supply when they are on sale. If you wanted to be set up with everything at one place you could see our dealer in Nampa, Ray Bixler at Finders Keepers.

Zig Zag Highbanker without the pump is $750.

Thanks,
Cherie
