Detector Only
  • • This lightweight metal detector is ideal for those who are looking for a serious entry-level machine. Features include audible and visual indication of detection, 16.5cm waterproof search coil which enables you to search in shallow water, and a 3.5mm earphone socket.
  • • This Visua model has a variable discrimination control which allows you to ignore certain metals in favour of those with highest conductivity. For example, you can set it to ignore Iron and Steel but to recognise Silver and Gold. Depending on the type of surface, it will detect items somewhere at a depth of between 16cm and 20cm.
  • • The alloy shaft is fully adjustable, making it suitable for both adults and children. It can be adjusted to be between 57cm and 83cm (distance from the handle to the search coil). The Metal Detector itself comes in a box 53 x 20 x 12cm, so this is the space you will require to store it between uses.
  • • VERY IMPORTANT: Please remember to test the product outside and away from obvious areas of metal. Houses have an array of metal items inside (pipes, cables, radiators etc.) so you will more than likely get strange results if you test the Metal Detector indoors.

I used this to locate bits of metal in a contaminated delivery of silica sand from a foundry. (It was being used for a new horse training arena 20m x 40m). The machine picked up items as deep as 10cm, ranging from big items like bolt heads & small metal rods as thick as a pencil, to small shards of metal only 1.5cm wide. It even registered clumps of metal filings.
Excellent value for money. Great piece of kit.

We brought this metal detector as a birthday present for our 8 year old son. I was very impressed with the fast delivery - less than 24 hours after ordering. It was simple to assemble thanks to the great instructions. We tested it in the garden and found a tiny screw that my husband had hidden in the grass. It is easy to follow the instructions to discern which metals you detect and to change the sensitivity. We brought this after ordering an identical one from elsewhere and receiving a completely different model (it was £20 more expensive and didn't come with batteries.) So if you are looking for a metal detector for children to use this is the one to get.

This product is amazing!

There are a few low end detectors to choose from on Amazon, and after looking at all the reviews and all the specs of each of them, I just knew this would be the best - and I was right!

It was very easy to put together and all the parts are well made. You can dissemble the unit with no worries about wearing the parts down if you need to move it about like I do and put all the important parts in a rucksack.

The main detecting unit is connected to the search coil with a 5 pin cable, thus making the unit very useful, as you can remove the search coil from the unit in 2 seconds and store it all separately. Once you remove the cable, you can slide the unit back out of the handle, so it is free to put wherever you like. The coil itself is held to the alloy shaft with a simple 2 way thumbscrew nut and bolt system, again, making it easy to remove.

The 2 alloy shafts are fiddly to piece together, but once you have mastered that, the pole becomes telescopic.

Using the unit itself was a pleasure. I will leave the instructions on how the discrimination and sensitivity works to the manual - which is very plain and simple. Otherwise I found the best way to get to grips with the unit was to throw some different metal objects on the lawn and going over them with the unit to see what results I got.

Awesome performance, awesome price, awesome unit all round! I have found many items in the woods on my first day including some current monies, £3 to be exact! So I am a very happy 'metal detector'

bought this item for our archery club, to find any missing arrows in the grass. it works brilliantly, simple to use, with a clear tone when it detects. it works every bit as well as some detectors three times the price.

Metal detecting is something I have thought about trying quite a few times so I finally thought I would give it a go. As I wasn't sure if it was to be a hobby that I would really get into, I didn't want to spend too much money so I plumped for this machine and it is ideal for a complete novice like me.

I didn't find it a problem at all to assemble it and it is sturdy enough. I have only used it a few times and haven't really found anything of value yet, a penknife on the sand dunes and various pieces of rusty metal. I guess it's the excitement of the beep that goes off when you have discovered something buried that keeps you plugging away, even if it only turns out to be a sweet wrapper!! There is a very handy headphone socket which cuts out the beeping noise and saves on the batteries. The 'Discriminating Metal Detector' is also quite light and easy to use.

I am by no means an expert but to me this is ideal for any beginner or someone that just wants to have the odd detecting search.

Would highly recommend. Detects hidden metal objects with ease and can be tuned to discriminate. Instruction manual excellent. For the money you would be pushed to find anything as good.

An exellent introduction to the fun of metal detecting. Originally bought to trace manhole cover in a hedge, it has been hi-jacked by my 8 year old grandson who has already found two old coins ( one dated 1775 )and an old key in the back garden. It is very sensitive so has also picked up old nails and bits of wire netting, but a good way to get the garden dug! So far,a good buy.
