Hey everyone my name is Bill Saffran, as you might know I won a “Scout” 12 volt highbanker from Prospectors Choice about a month ago. I had wanted to take it out immediately but mother nature hasn’t been playing nice with the east coast lately. Fortunately yesterday it finally broke 50 degrees! To make it better I was off work! So off to my spot I went. Now my spot inst easy to get to at all. From where I park you have to hike down a trail that descends roughly 200′ in less than a quarter mile. That being said I didn’t have any problems getting the Scout down into and out of my spot. And my setup time was all of maybe 5 minutes. I ran for about 4 hours with my deep cycle marine battery and had no problems. Right out of the box this highbanker has proved itself to me. I tested my tailings twice and each time there was no loss of gold at all! That’s saying something because most of my gold is about the size of a grain of sand with a rare flat piece the size of a pencil tip. This machine caught it all! If you are looking for a portable, easy to use, well made highbanker to check a spot that no one would be able to get to previously with anything larger than a pan. This is an excellent machine designed and built specifically for that purpose. I will post pics soon.
