Hi peeps... I noticed this forum area hasn't been used in a while so thought I'd start up some chat.

Is anyone else here running a Heckler Fabrication 2410V trommel? I've had a Heckler 10" x 10' 4 stage (over under) high banker since 2011 and love it, just picked up one of his trommels, anyone else running one? Let' share tips n tricks.

Nice rig mate.
If we were to use one of those over here in Aust  on anything other than  the appropriate  mining lease we would get a big smack from the Greens, Park Rangers, Dept Of Primary Industries, Grumpy land owners, Cops, Farmers, Pastoralists., Platypus, Red fin, Trout n tadpoles Smile ...But yeah very nice rig. Wish I had one thirty years ago.

There's a reason it's painted green.. lol out of site, out of mind... actually it's on my own property so I'm good.

Here's a video of this actual unit running on a sampling run up on a buddy's claim in Idaho, gold shown at the end.



Thanks

That does not apply here in Victoria, you have to have a permit, environment assessment, Blue would be a better colour with all the BLUE TAPE. Evil or Very Mad

Yeah. Reckon I would have a better chance of getting a permit to place a few crocodiles in Lake Burly griffin than I would to get a permit to run a rig like that over here. Rolling Eyes
