Call for Price
Keene's 8 Inch Dredges are the gold standard (punn intended) for the most substantial, professional yet portable dredges on the market today.
This is one of the most cost-effective and economical dredges in the industry. Both of these dredges are powered by two lightweight engines as opposed to one larger, heavier engine which also increases maneuverability.
Smaller engines mean that they can be transported by hand without the need for larger equipment for transport. The 8246V and 8246VE are mounted on flotation modules that feature large carpeted decks that provide excellent traction and workspace.
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 to the efficient recovery of gemstones.
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.
