  1. I had a belt similar to his , it has its limitations as it piles up rather fast cause it dumps right to the ground and the pile builds up and hits the belt 2:46 on his YouTube video . It would work well if it had a second conveyor that takes the waste   up and away much higher form the unit.  Then you can just use the front end loader and take it away.  Picture below was my attempt at using a conveyor , the problem I had was the belt was hitting the side of the metal enclosure creating major resistance to the  motor, hence it burned 2 motor at 400 bucks each !!! 😂 So after number 2 got fried i modified it to dump off the side. This way all I do is take the loader and scoop it and dump it, as for now it will stay as it is. The continuous duty vibrating grizzly screen works great and the rocks just shake down to the ground.

  2. Here in California we are limited with all the regulations, the only option for me is metal detecting and dryblowing. I built it three years ago but every time I tested it I found I had to do more modifications. Right now  it  works very good and captures the fine gold pretty good. Of course working alone it has its limitations as far as how much material you can run but still much better then the pick and shovel. The trommel will process much more material and you will have better results do to dirt clogs  broken down and its just a better recovery system with water. Anyways good luck! Hope you find some good gold....

    For what my opinion is worth, as much as I keep buying these big coils (then selling them at a loss after doing nothing more than banging bushes), I always end up back at a smaller elliptical, they're just so much handier for under scrub poking.... now hopefully they don't come out with a 25" elliptical, then I'll really have a dilemma.... joking aside, I have yet to see some place here in America where the size of this makes up for the frustration of it getting caught on everything around it... and Chris knows, I'll jump at any opportunity to give him my money, but under 20" Evo ellipi's still are my weapon of choice (with the 7000 collecting dust in the closet) as the photos in this link show works for me.


    Now that all being said.... get ready kids... once people start letting the secret out, that's going to be deadly in WA and when I come across land that looks like this photo below, here in the US, I'd be the first to buy one.

    Hi Jen,

    I have done the same...had the NF 20" Mono round...I do have to say I did find a nice solid 15 gram piece about 19 inches down...but thats it..sold it. Had the 18" Elite liked it but  a bit heavy , found as few pieces..got rid of it do to terrain I hunt. My favorite size coil these days is 15" Monos...I dont see any reason to have one larger than a 18"...although I am a dreamer...and dream of that huge lunk still waiting out of reach, down about 2-3 feet on some of my worked out areas...and patches. Maybe just maybe....one of these new coils like the X-Coil or Detech will reach it. But I will wait and see what the reviews say out in the field.
