Our 5″ gold dredge always has been popular with dredgers who were looking for the perfect balance of portability with higher productivity. Smaller dredges simply can’t process as much gravel and the larger dredges require more effort to get into those more remote areas where the richer gold deposits are. This is why the 5″ dredge size is normally the smallest dredge chosen by the serious prospectors and professional dredgers.
Our standard twin engine model is aimed toward the more serious dredger and offers the most suction power of any 5″ dredge in its class. Powered by two Honda GX160 engines, and our proven HP350 pumps, the latest option on the twin engine model is to equip it with dual Honda GX200 engines and our impressive HP400 pumps for even greater power, making it ideal for higher altitudes or for extra deep dredging. This dredge is easier to refuel and start due to the location of the pumps and the two smaller, lighter power plants are easier to handle than the larger single engine/pump package. The twin engine model is also capable of driving an additional air compressor should the need arise. Proline also offers a single engine dredge design to provide a choice to our well established twin engine platform. The single engine dredge is slightly lighter and lower in cost than the twin engine model and is directed more toward the enthusiast who may not have the need for the additional power and portability of the twin. The single is powered by a Honda GX270 engine and our HP500 pump. This engine/pump combination provides for excellent suction power and can potentially offer better fuel consumption over a twin engine dredge that is being operated at full throttle.
