Back Pack Straps

You can get this style handle at Lowes or Home Depot.
We attach with 1/4″ small bolts.
You can run ANY pump as long as it puts out 4000 GPH and has roughly 38 PSI+ The PSI (pressure) is what gives the header box the great washing action. LARGE pumps can be used, just neck them down and use a ball valve if you need to reduce flow more than idle. In general… ELECTRIC pumps, such as bilge pumps, don’t have the PRESSURE needed to power the washing action.

Attaching the Flare to your current mini.
Install dampener mat and lay flare on flat surface. Leave a SMALL 3/16″ space between the top of the flare and the mini bottom leg bracket. Drill holes, attach bolts and washers as needed.
Tips on Running
Set the unit up on a downhill slope if possible. This will LOWER the header box and make it easier to feed. The lower the better to prevent sore shoulders.
Start with the upper box at a 9 degree pitch and the lower about 5 degrees. Play around with the pitch and make sure you see fine black sand in the mats.
We clean the unit out about 2-3 times a day. Some people just lean the moss out to check and see if there is good gold.
