Product overview

• Discriminates the type of metal found in two modes
• Nine 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

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 waterproof

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have just bought this machine and what can I say this machine kicks coin! If you are looking for a very well priced machine which does exactly as is stated in the review then this is a must buy! I did my market research before commiting myself to this one and to be honest the best I came up with is a machine with 2" less depth and a price tag of Ј140.I must congratulate maplins on their spec review as I have tried a manual depth test and found the 25cm to be exact.Also this machine will go 25cm on a 5p which is half the size,this is a very sensitive machine indeed as i have also found small pinsized pieces of wire approx 3" down.If you want a professional machine that is also perfect for a beginer then dont waste your money on anything else. WELL DONE MAPLIN! and thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought this metal detector a few months ago from the maplin store in exeter. I read the instructions fully and when i came to set up the ground balance sometimes it would not work very well, or not at all! i was in a open field so there was nothing to disturb it! I then got my friend to test it who paid Ј500 to Ј600 for his metal detector and had bought cheaper metal detectors in the past but a well known makes. And he said the exact same thing that it was struggling to ground balance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice entry level detector. This was a Christmas present for my daughter overall we are happy it works well and she has found plenty of treasure . My only gripe is the mechanism for extending and locking the length tube has a part obviously missing but being a Christmas present I have had to modify it slightly as she wanted to be straight outside with it or I would of took it back. That aside it works well and has got my daughter outside for hours at a time ,a rare thing in this day and age .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a bad bit of kit for the price but i did find a problem with it the clamping device that held the two pole together didn't tighten up enough and the pole kept turning and was lose very poorly made but the rest of it is fine, my saying is you get what you pay for

How can I change the volume either at the speaker or plugged in headphones?  Your Metal Detector Headphones, for example, don't appear to have any volume control either

Unknown - Professional Metal Detector with LCD Display. I purchased one of these 2 years ago and the cover for the battery compartment has broken. Is a replacement available.

Asked by: ALAN
On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.
