You guys are killing it on vacs.
In the 2 & 1/2 yrs here, Ive raised prices from .50 to .75 & then a yr later lowered time from 5 to 4 minutes.
I think I need to go up to $1. I only get about $300/week off 10 vacs @ my 2 sites.

took over a FS wash and converted to EE. Removed the PVC Piping for the Vac inside and found my guy sifting thru the dirt for coins. Couple hours later I see another guy sifting thru. First guy said "I sold the business."

Too expensive and the holes are too small. My double pail was free since I had the hardware cloth, and just as fast and effective. Plus you'd have to clean the Prospector once in a while after people vacuum up water.
What's this "double pail" you refer to?

The good thing about being in Canada is that we have $1 and $2 coins that get sucked up into the vacuum. The amount of change is really a function of how busy your vacuums are. I'm lucky that the bums and meth heads don't know how much change there is and haven't discovered the vacuums as a revenue source.
Hello. Sending you a PM abou this.....
