Product Information

Made by gold prospectors for gold prospectors, this hand operated gold dredge (sometimes called a gold sniper) is made of 2 inch PVC pipe The Ball-handle is made High Density plastic. The 1" x 8.5" nozzle is perfect for crevicing and sniping. Total length is about 39 inches. The vacuum chamber is 2" x 25" inches and the total weight of the unit is only 2 pounds. The non-motorized suction dredge makes it perfect for places where you cannot use motorized dredges (check local laws). Narrow nozzle allows you to get deep inside cracks in bedrock to get told that was previously out of reach.

Please note:  If the nugget sucker loses suction or is too difficult to operate, you may need to tighten the wing nut inside the suction chamber.  To do this, simply pull the suction nozzle off the unit and while holding the black knob attached to the end of the rod tightly with one hand, use your other hand or some long pliers to reach into the suction chamber and secure the wing nut.  Then twist the black knob clockwise to tighten or loosen the nut to the desired tightness.

I didn’t think the duty was so much but I know for next time. Is there a bigger duty price for more items? Or weight?

Great tool and great customer service

The nugget sucker hand dredge is the tool I was missing in my prospector arsenal! The first time using it for cleaning large crevices on the river bed I found my biggest flake so far. I later discovered a crack where the needle is inserted in the cylinder and High Plains customer service sent me a replacement in less than a week! Thank you guys, great product and great customer service!

Great Service!

Quick, professional service

I have not been able to use the hand held suction dredge yet but am very happy with its design and construction.
After watching a video on using one in creeks, I was going to build one but found yours on line and decided it would be perfect.
