8246V and 8246VE Gas Powered Diamond and Gold Dredges

This is one of the most cost effective and economical dredges in the industry. Both of these dredges are powered by two light weight engines as apposed to one larger, heavier engine which also increases maneuverability. Smaller engines means that they can be transported by hand without the need of larger equipment for transport. The 8246V and 8246VE are mounted on flotation modules that feature large carpeted decks that provide excellent traction and work space. The 8246VE sluice box has been extended to 16 feet in length. The first section is our 3-stage sluice box for fine & coarse gold and the second half is dedicated for the efficient recovery of gemstones.

Model 8246VE


Model 8246VE

Both of these dredges are powered by twin 23 horsepower, commercial Vanguard gasoline engines with electric starter, for long life, reliability and economy. These models include separate 5 gallon gas tanks that mount on the float for ease of refueling as well as extended running time. The suction system has an over-sized power jet and twin injectors for maximum suction power to reduce the occurrence of rock jams. This is probably the most portable 8 inch dredge on the market. All of the components can be broken down into small enough sections so that they can easily be carried by hand.

The 8246's are equipped with a 263 compressor for an ample air supply that can accommodate two divers. These models are designed for ease of assembly and operation in the most severe of conditions.
