Jeff! Have you seen Dan Hurd's video "Fluid Bed Concentrator to recover great gold! (Giveaway)"? Too many comments to go through to see if you did. Just wondering what your thoughts are.

The Love Of Prospecting
I know we share this love and, almost every prospector tinkers with his or her equipment. And that's exactly how GMGT began.
Before I begin, the difference between the 23” Pay Streak Finder & the 3' River Bed Hog? Feed Rate.
However, one of my videos clearly shows one of my customers "Kevin @ NEGP" hammering his 23” PSF with a full size shovel. And, it still traps the gold!!
Fellow prospectors, I'm not going to sit here and tell you that my GMGT's are the best and cause you to say, Yeah! Yeah! that's what they all say. I'm going to let just a few of my customers tell you what they think.
Please do go and read all customer reviews for yourself.
The 3' River Bed ROCKS
Posted by Gregg on Aug 30th 2018
I am totally blown away at the Green Mountain Gold Trap 3' River Bed Hog. This thing is AWESOME, to say the least.
I once owned a Bazooka Gold Trap. The River Bed Hog has taught me so much in regards to the fluid bed functions.
The inventor states, Clear= Confidence, So True!
Thanks Green Mountain Gold Trap, YOU ROCK!!
Three Foot River Hog GMGT

Very impressed after using the handling and using the GM GoldTrap. It processed fast, was fun to use, NO CLASSIFYING!!, and the set up was much faster then I thought it was going to be. Another great point is the removable trap of course. Didn't have to move the sluice to do a clean out. Kick ass sluice, nice American company, ...highly recommended. Thanks GMGT!
3' River Bed Hog
Posted by Kevin @ New England Gold Prospecting on Aug 31st 2018
This fluid bed design is one amazing piece of equipment I highly recommend for those who want to move lots of materiel. It captures well under 200 mesh gold with ease. I loved it so much, I bought the 23" Pay Streak Finder about a month after buying this one.
Thanks Green Mountain Gold Trap!!

This little GMGT is a great fluid bed sluice, I absolutely love the clean out drawer... Quality built for a prospector by a prospector.

I am so impressed with this product, I am going to buy the 3' River Bed Hog next year. Then I can really move some materiel!
My design has been fine tuned to capture fine flour gold down to -300 microns.
It's clear feature gives the operator complete control and eliminates the guess work in set up. Never again will you ask yourself, “Do I have it at the right pitch?” You Will Know For Sure. Clear = Confidence.
The all new patent pending Removable Capture Tray allows for a very quick clean out. It also eliminates the need to lift the whole unit out of the water, saving valuable time.
Excellent, if not superb fluid dynamics throughout the entire Capture Tray. As a result, it can and does sink that gold. And that's where it will stay with proper set up and feed rate.
Just imagine, you know your onto the gold and you've been working very hard to get as much of it as you can. Maybe it's larger gold but, if it's fine flour, how much are you loosing?
With the GMGT, you will know right where your gold is. And your friends, just like mine do, will come over to you and ask, “When Are You Going To Do A Clean Out?”
Friends, I tested this product every which way but Sunday. I tested the materials used to build the GMGT's before even using them, had reps from certain companies come and researched them out so you would get what you deserve.
When I began selling, I was using Acrylic. As of Feb of 2019 I have began using Poly-carbonate / Lexan. This stuff is virtually indestructible and it's what is used for bullet proof glass.
The structure itself and products used in assembly make it a very solid product.
Got time for a true story. Let's call it a test I didn't plan.
After a day of testing capture rate, which is roughly 98%, I decided to pack up and hike out.
I was in a gorge and my one and only way out was to climb up a four foot bedrock ledge. This ledge lead to my path out.
It was fall time and there were lots of leaves and pine needles on that ledge and, all over the ground.
Long story short, I got just about to the very top and one of my boots slipped on those leaves and pine needles.
At the bottom was jagged bedrock with cobbles, rocks and larger rocks.
All I could think was, this is going to hurt in more than one way.
I went down backwards. I had the 3' River Bed Hog strapped to my shoulder and it ended up behind me.
When I landed, I landed right on the trap. I just knew it had to be broken or cracked.
When I got up, unharmed, to my amazement, there wasn't even a tiny crack.
Since that year, I have added even more structure to the feed end of all models. I want you to get something that's going to last, no matter how much it costs me to do so.
The bottom line is this, you Will love it and, your friends will love it too.
The one thing I can count on if I am prospecting an area with other people around is this. It draws people in. They want to see it in action. They want to know whats inside the trap.
Don't forget to head on over to the official GreenMountain GoldTrap YouTube channel, subscribe, ring the bell and check out all the videos. And also, do a YouTube search. So far, there are a few people out there with videos. I expect there will be more as time goes on.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants a Awesome sluice box.
Amazing quality! Once you figure out the needed flow rate to fluidize the trap it’s fun to use. Easy to clean out and the owner Joe goes above and beyond for his customers!
This thing is amazing. And Joseph is always quick to return my calls or answer questions via email. Great Product / Great Customer Service. Wish I had a third thumb to give it!
Easy to set up, easy to empty. I was amazed at how well it worked in a slow flowing creek. Caught gold first shovel.
Finally got to try it, but still had to contend with a little snow and had to stay in the lower sections of the creek where it has been hit pretty hard over the last 20 years. Still found 300 mesh minus gold that the others had missed, even though it was just 4 or 5 specks per run. Very impressed with performance and quality of build. Can't wait to get back out there for a second try in the higher parts of the creek.
I recently purchased and used the 3' Green Mountain Gold Trap Classifier. I was immediately impressed with the design and construction of the classifier. For me, at age 67, this is a game changer. The Green Mountain Gold Trap Classifier has eliminated the need to classify material by size prior to running the material as is recommended for most conventional sluices. It also has eliminated the need to remove the sluice from the stream for periodically cleaning. This has made the process far less labor intensive and much more enjoyable. I tested the classifier on a stream in the Black Hills of South Dakota in area with known flour gold. The Green Mountain Gold Trap Classifier easily captured the flood Gold. I am eagerly awaiting spring and contemplating the many areas I plan to use the classifier. Thanks Joseph for a great product. T.G.
This thing is the absolute Cadillac of all fluid bed gold traps by far. And I simply can't believe the small gold it's capable of capturing. So glad I held off until this year with the change over from Acrylic to Pollycarbonate. I have hammered it by accident with large rocks 3 time now and it hasn't broke yet. Great Job, Great Product!! Thanks Green Mountain Gold Trap!
Have taken it out twice so far a been extatic with the amount of gold and how small the gold is it captures
Well boys and girls I finally had the pleasure of using my gold trap with my father and brother. This was my first time using it so I didnt think it would be perfect but it was pretty close. I could put about two buckets or so in there without breaking my back. It took about about 30 minutes tops to put two buckets in and to do a clean out. Here in colorado it is super fine stuff and it's as advertised, it caught gold. I did do a loss pan. And as I expected since the gold out here is so fine I did have some. But I literally found the most gold I found at one time. Now my dad and brother used a classifier before running the material.(do not do it) they had a ton of iron stones and small heavies that clogged the agitating holes. So with one bucket we did 3 cleanouts just to keep the water flowing. All you need to do is just shovel. Dont worry so much about the angle of the beast, just make sure your flow is strong enough. Great product and I'm very happy it with her. Named her victoria.
JOSEPH I JUST OPENED MY ORDER THAT YOU SENT ME. I HAVE BEEN IN FLORIDA SINCE APRIL THE FIRST. I JUST GOT BACK TO MARYLAND YESTERDAY . I HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT IF THIS RIVER BED HOG WORKS AS GOOD AS IT LOOKS !! I WILL HAVE A LOT OF FUN !! IT LOOKS LIKE A PEACE OF JEWELRY I ALL MOST DON'T WANT TO USE IT. LIKE YOU I AM GOOD WITH MY HANDS AND THIS THING IS BUILT VERY WELL ,BUT LOOKS TO GOOD TO USE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR GREAT WORK AND GREAT PERSONAL ATTENTION !1 THANK YOU AGAIN JOHN HAGERTY
Very happy and enjoy the product.
The best product in the panning market if your looking to capture super fine gold dust and know where too look! I ordered the 23" paystreak finder and as of yesterday put in my order for the 3' I'm entirely impressed with the set up process as well as clean out, super slick and easy! If anyone in the market for a sluice box I'd recommend this to anyone before I would and I'm a proud owner of a keene super sluice. Looking forward to putting the 3' to use and can be assured I'll upload some videos!
