2 Replies and 1923 Views Dredge Jet Log Sizing  1923  2 Started by  c.butters74@gmail.com I'm attempting to piece together a smaller 2.5-inch dredge with a power jet. I go to Keene's website, where they offer 2 separate jet log sizes for a 2.5-in. They have it with a 1.25-in jet log, as well as a 1.5-in. What is the difference in performance between these two otherwise identical parts I am using the Honda GX200 6.5hp motor with Keene p180 pump. I am aware this is well above the necessary power required in a perfect scenario. I'm more concerned about whether the larger jet log prov...

1 Replies and 3287 Views Power jet, supply size.  3287  1 Started by  c.butters74@gmail.com I've recently upgraded my highbanker to a much larger size, and with that bought a new Honda keen 180 pump. My port supplying water to the dredge is 2in. I'm wanting to dredge with this but I am not sure why there are 2 different size options for the 3in power jet. They offer it with a 1.5in supply port as well as a 2in port, but I'm not exactly sure why, or what difference in performance this change makes Any experienced information on this would be great.

4 Replies and 3909 Views Priming a Keene P185H pump  3909  4 Started by  jim@northpinesgold.com We have a Keene P185H pump with a Honda GX200 motor for our 3' dredge. The motor runs like a champ. Our question is what is the best and easiest way to prime this pump. We fill the intake hose to full capacity with a small electric pump but still it doesn't pump any water. We put the foot valve up stream to try and keep the intake hose full. The foot valve has a one way flapper in it to supposedly keep the water from draining when the pump is shut down and it seems to be working however we...

1 Replies and 3405 Views I'm wanting to clean out stock tanks or ponds using my dredge  3405  1 Started by  tomhardee1963@yahoo.com Hello everybody, I'd like some opinions on using my pumps and hoses from my dredge to clean out the sand and sediment from my father-in-laws stock tanks on his ranch. I have two of the p180 pumps and since the material I have to move is just sand and silt I was wondering if i might get better results if i use a combination of a power jet and a suction nozzle. I'd like to do this for him as he has to hire a guy to come in with an excavator every few years to clean out the sand and silt that washe...

4 Replies and 4628 Views Dredging in Indiana  4628  4 Started by  sydneyruth@yahoo.com Are there any public areas where you can use a dredge and/or sluice box Looking for directions, crossroads, landmarks, etc. We are not from the area so we don't have any idea where to start. Also, anyone know anything about prospecting in the Brown County State Park We've panned in Morgan Monroe, but don't want to haul all of our equipment (pumps and sluice) if we can't find anywhere to use it. Thanks all!
