Portable Engine Driven Shop Vacuum System

Engine Driven Shop Vacuum System

This Portable Engine Driven Shop-Vac System was developed by Keene Engineering. Because it was designed for dry gold dredging, it is ideal for picking up dirt. Another attribute of the system is its 5 gallon bucket easy on-off screw lid.  In addition, the unit is powered by a high quality Makita 4-Cycle Gas Engine. As a result it can run all day on one gallon of gas. This system works both as a blower or as a vacuum. Weighing in at 19 lbs this portable system is a perfect choice for the Holey-Moley Digger for digging holes where electricity is not available for running an electric shop vacuum. The light weight of the unit makes the system easy to carry on a back pack to remote areas. High Flow Rate

The Portable Engine Driven Shop Vacuum System operates at 180 to 300 CFM consequently the air flow rate exceeds most home shop vacuums by a factor of two or more.   This system in combination with the 2-½-inch suction hose makes it the best choice for operating the Holey-Moley Digger Assembly.

Outdoor Vacuum System

The Portable Engine Driven Shop Vacuum System vacuums up sand and gravel and cleans up areas around holes dug with the Holey-Moley Digger. As a result of this systems high air flow rate it is ideal for vacuuming up loose dirt when replacing plants in landscaping and for doing paver and brick work.

System Contents

The accessories that come with the Vacuum System are especially relevant. These accessories include a crevice nozzle and a A27 crevice tool.  It addition, there is a 10 feet of 2-½-inch suction hose, a 10 inch gold pan and a Gold Prospector’s Digest. it that isn’t enough, it also includes a GBSI snifter bottle, and a funnel and gold vial.


Because the Portable Engine Driven Shop Vacuum System has a high flow rate, it is ideally suited for the Holey-Moley Digger. As a result of the systems high airflow rate, the unit produces super cyclonic airflow flow in the Holey-Moley digger head.  This high flow rate increases the dirt particle extraction efficiency of the unit.  Air flow velocities in excess of several hundred miles per hour are common.  The Portable Engine Drive Shop Vacuum System is highly recommended as the vacuum unit for the Holey-Moley Digger.
