This is my favorite design of a vibrating screen washplant.

Of all the plants that I have built, this was probably the best one I ever had. This design is so simple to use. As you can see I was washing glacial til with fine flat flakey gold. The clay content was quite high, as you can see it in the sluice water, but it did a great job

You can screen a lot of gravel though this plant I designed back in the 80's.

They are super easy to move, set up and are really low maintenance.  Typically I can move onto a property and be set up in one day.

As soon as I complete my new trommel, I will probably set the keel of a new washplant exactly like this one.

The gravel pump configuration, I use all the time to get rid of sand tails or pump to a jig if necessary.

How do you beat this for simplicity and reliability?
