the final telly 2 and a bit oz

before we went up I traded my 4500 in on an sdc2300 and ran a few trials against my 5000 with a 8" commander coil there was no way I could get the same target response with the 5000 without bringing in a heap more ground noise got to say very impressed. talked to one guy in cue has picked up 17oz in 8 weeks crumbing his old patches

Tom u need a full length of white pvc pipe to extend up past the dirt and an additional filter made up as to prevent dusting of yah motor--this would b an urgent addition otherwise u will dust an engine every couple of weeks.

I have an old machine I brought back from the bush and theres a photo of the modification on --resurrecting a dry blower---if interested.

I used to carry 2 spare filters and change them out every time I cleaned the riffle trays--every 3-4 hours.

On top of the Honda were the filter is-- u can make up a 90' elbow and some flexible rubber pipe going into a cartridge filter then the poly pipe goes on top of the filter box.

u can see the filter box near the base of the conveyor and another one up high--even the high one has gone up another 12'.

if unclear phone me at work and can help u further.

Hi tom
u need to slow down the feed rate over your screens coz the dirt needs to jump over the riffles and not flow down and if u can speed up the bellows action then u will do a lot better in my humble opinion.

just a few pointers from my effort last year and the problems I encountered whilst learning the art of dry blowing.
