Steve , there's been several threads on dredges and the need for a working classification system ... Honcoops' use of the Pelton wheel power delivery system for rotating the trommel would be a legitimate theory for use with the larger dredges .. I've been told the Honcoop hibankers were built well enough to last a lifetime and people were pleased with the performance of the 2 stage recovery system of an earlier model that didn't incorporate the trommel ... By the way I've heard through the grape-vine one of the larger dredge manufacturers is in the R&D stage incorporating a trommel classification system with the suction dredge ... Have you heard anything confirming that ??? Wes

Hi Wes,

No, I have not.
