Professional Metal Detector with LCD Display

• Discriminates the type of metal found in two modes
• 9 types of metal can be displayed• Variable notch facility which ignores junk metal such as ring pulls• 20cm waterproof search coil• Low battery indication• Detection depth is 20cm for a 2p coin• Pinpoints the location where object is found• LCD display screen• Three tone audio• Arm support with adjustable stem• Earphone socket• 2 detecting modes• 3 ground balance capabilities

The LCD display screen, it makes analysing what metal has been found very easy. It has the pinpoint facility which locates the object found and using the notch mode is a more sophisticated approach that allows one or several specific metal categories to be targeted, whilst rejecting others. This is useful for filtering out ring pulls. Different tones are emitted when different metal categories are found.Please note: the control housing is not waterproofRequires 6 x AA batteries (sold separately) Order Code L43AL x 2

It may be illegal to use a metal detector in some Countries or States please check with you local government department before using this device.

  • As Good as the Garrett 250

    Hi All Like many I have a tight budget, so I shopped around and could not believe how much some detectors are. Then I found this one which has all the features an amateur would ever need. It is simple to use, very light, and as far as I can tell as good as the Garrett 250. Mine delivered first time out 1893 half crown, really old lead cloth seal,many old pennies and modern coin. Excellent for all coins even picked up a 1970 half pence 6 inch down. I was on a very heavy mineralised area, so set the grounding to eliminate the false hits away you go. Top tip the control box is not waterproof, so buy or make a cover. The construction is not the best but I am yet to see a beginners that is. But I would rather have one that gets the spoils than looks the part.

  • Precision gold lt24bk

    Honest review is a bit confusing to start with working out what all buttons do but once familiar it's a breeze to use, it's not a toy and not a waste of hard earned cash, in comparison it's same as the garrett 250 ace and uses same technology but at a reduced price thanks to Chinese

  • My uncle bought this for me.It struggles to ground balance,but everything else works fine! I found numerous things,including an old thimble and an 1862 penny.This is a very sensitve detector indeed.However,youll need to throw a pinpointer into your purchase as well,because it will come in very handy in the field.

  • I recently read a review for the Garret ace 250 and was then surprised to find out that this metal detector supplied by Maplins has the exact features of the Garret machine for less than half the price so I made a purchase as soon as possible.On testing this model I was very impressed with the ease of use and did various air test to conform that the depth sensitivity and metal type discrimination is excellent and on my first field test I found 2 coins straight away.This detector is very sensitive so you must make sure that you ground balance if the soil is heavily mineralized and dont use anywhere near power pylons as this model will pick up the static interference, also it pays to use fully charged or new batteries only as you will get poor performance once power is at a reduced voltage.Finally if you want a top Quality metal detector at a great price then buy this model as you will be like me, extremely happy with your purchase and enjoy the exciting world of metal detecting, well done Maplins!
