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.
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.
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.
I am very pleased, arrived this morning and immediately went to the beach to try it out. For two hours I found 6-7 euros, and is not in season. It is not heavy, super easy to use and so little money is a gift! If you like, such as vision, take it! Will not go wrong!
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.
