(Available on the internet too!)SANDMAN SYSTEM FissureMan- Basic Hand Dredge AND SANDMAN Attachment
This product system is being provided to addressrequests received from individuals shopping for FissureMan hand dredge technology with hose & bucket collection capability. This system is comprised of a FissureMan- Basic Hand Dredge bodyand a SANDMANAttachment that will allow the mass collection of materialat1.00" overall size or smaller.
Works great!! Surprised by how much and how fast it filled up!! Great item! wsc-computersDESCRIPTION
This system has been expertly manufactured and designed for use with the bayonet connection points found on the advanced FissureMan II and GOLD-N-ROD models. This design set allows for future upgrade of the system with additional sniping nozzles and collection capabilities, at a later date if desired, without the loss of the original functionality.
The product system offered comes supplied with a 1.5” ID FATBoy nozzleplus2- 1/2" ID nozzlesfor snipingto provide a complete collection capability that will allow setup at a given location in a stream bedto provide the prospector an ability to access and easily retrieve gold or gemstone bearing material for processing in sluices, high bankers, spiral wheel separators or any chosen piece of processing equipment.
Withthe two-gallon collection capacity, the SANDMANSystem easily collects large quantities of material (literally gallons!) very quickly. This is a great tool to use where a powered dredge is not allowed as this tool is the best way to move large volumes of material from under water almost as easily assome powered dredge. No more lost time and/or fatigue from transferring small amounts of material to and fro to your processing equipment as performed with common open-ended hand dredges. The SANDMANSystemprovides volume material collection performance that far out paces any one pull and dump simple hand dredge design claiming to be efficient for moving a lot of material.
Concerning check valves:
Check valves come in an assortment of mechanical designs to be used for various functional requirements. Many check valve designs are made for liquid or gas control.
One specific valve design used for slurry control is the Swing Check Valve.
(Definition of “slurry”: “a watery mixture of insoluble matter”)
The Swing Check Valve has been in use for over 80 years to control the flow of slurries of various material types from abrasives to sludge. This design is used because particulate matter within the flow stream does not adversely affect its operation.
It has been indicated on a competing sale page that “check valves and flapper valves do jam and plug”. This is only true if a correct valve design and construction approach is not used for the intended purpose – that is - to capture and move slurry materials. It should be noted that FissureMan check valves are not standard off-the-shelf hardware store check valves that are normally used to transfer clear or semi-clear fluids.
The check valve used with the SANDMANAttachment are a simplified version of the time-tested and reliable Swing Check Valve. They have been referred to loosely as flap valves.
All FissureMan check valves are designed and constructed in-house to provide a valve system that works as required and by design, greatly reduce the occasional malfunction that might be experienced with other check valve designs.

FissureMan Bucket Relief Valve or "BRV"
HAND DREDGE - SIMPLE OR COMPLEX?
- You be the judge -
An allnew collection bucket design.
FissureMan Online has been working on redesigning the current bucket for sometime now. Althoughwe are not the first manufacturer to release a new design we do believe itto be the ultimate for ease of use when compared to any other design.
There will be no need to take the hose off the bucket to unscrew the lid or use a tool to pry the lid off to access to the material - the lid is hinged!
The lid is also easy to open -it takes just one hand! When closed, the lid issecure enoughthatwhen loaded with material,turned upside downand shaken, the lid won't open.
A BRV is incorporated justaswith the original round bucket and works identical to what is shown in the video.
The newsquare bucket designis translucent (just as all whitepoly material is) and when in direct sunlight, allows some view of how much material there is in the bucket.
Pleaserefer tothe attachedpicturesto see what the newdesign looks like.
product looks Great easy to put together and use shipping only took 2 days thanks stiscoobydoo1It works perfect the best investment I've made thank you rayc4304 Hi Dennis, I just recieved the GoldSucker and sat there over an hour admiring the engineering craftsmanship in your item. It`s about the best built and engineered device I`ve seen on a lot of years. I`am a 68 yr. old electrician and have been prospecting here in Indiana for Glacial gold for a number of years. Real fine gold here but also found 4 small diamonds. I usually build my own equipment until I saw your device on . I haven`t see such quality for the buck in years. I hope to retire soon to Dahlonega, Georgia,( The Gold Capital Of The East), and get a few acres on the Yahoola River. The river is the best producer on the whole East coast. In October I am going to Georgia for a week and will use the Fissureman exclusivly with my Minelab detector. I will take some pictures and send them to you showing your Fissureman in action. I am going to build a small sluce box to attach to the Fissureman instead of the bucket as I will be pumping a lot of water anyway. Well, I need to get on now for your response. Thanks for the great product. Maybe after I retire to Georgia I might sell your Fissureman products locally. There is an unbelievable number of prospectors there what with Dahlonega being a major year- round tourist spot. Well, better go now. Will keep you posted. Best Regards, bookofruth FEATURES

Operational tip: When in slow moving water you only have to set the bucket in place and begin collection. Within fast moving water it is advised that you tetherthe bucketwith a rope or other suitable restraining strap attached to a stake or ground screw driven into the streambed orbank nearby. Alternatively, a large rock or other natural anchor will work as well. Tethering the bucket to yourselfhas been done but is not advised as fast moving water may pick up the bucket and carry it away and while doing so may possibly drag you down stream with it.
