Large Shaker Wash Plant
Newer large 15 yard/hour vibratory wash plant…reinforced 3/16” steel hopper base (most built with 1/8” steel), side loading (either side) with a hopper length of 9’10” (118”) width of 6’4”(76”), ideal for backhoe or skidsteer loading, which feeds down to 36” x 40” screen (½” classification) to sluices (reinforced grizzly below screen for stability). Processed approximately 1000 yards through this unit, recovering over 200 grams of gold without any issues. Has a concrete vibratory motor mounted to the hopper to assist feeding material down, which is easily ran from a small generator and I will also include a backup concrete motor.
- Storage tool box.
- Two rear (built in) stabilizers.
- Two front jack stabilizers.
- Tongue jack (for hauling).
- Pins and center jack to increase/decrease (adjustable) hopper grade.
- Wired-in trailer lights.
Height of the hopper for transport is 72” (6”) tall, but two front jack stabilizers increases pitch, with additional pitch from adjustable center jack with two locking pin guides with multiple setting heights. 4 heavy duty springs between the hopper and the frame to allow for hopper to vibrate more freely. Grizzly & screen area also adjustable pitch. Built in water manifold (with quick connect), with galvanized steel pipe over hopper sides (to protect lines when feeding hopper). Made for 2” trash pump (around 150gpm) with 12” wide sluices, seem to work ideal.
New, basic units like this sell for $12k+ (when you can find them, without shipping costs).
I’m not planning to include hoses (to & from pump), generator, sluices or trash pump in the package…but can be negotiate that in for $5,500. It has been a great unit to run solo (by myself), easy to maneuver into place, no hauling issues whatsoever, only selling it as my operation is getting too large and need to build a much bigger unit for multiple operators.
