Prices start at just $300 for the base unit (see main picture) and you can add on other features as desired. See below for other options.
The Prospector 6 Trommel packs easily and can be transported to out of the way spots.
How Does a Gold Trommel Work? Material is fed into the barrel drum, and is then lifted up by the barrel's rotation and aerated as it falls back down. This lifting and aeration action is repeated with each revolution along the entire length of the barrel drum. The finer material and gold passes through the punch plate screen openings, while the larger waste material (rocks and gravel) tumbles out and exits at the rear of the drum.

Hopper 13 1/2" x 11 1/2"
