Great detector!

Canada in Not Submitted - good

This detector is easy to use and finds targets at more depth than the typical detector (we've tested a few to compare). It is a quality made machine, there's no question about it. The only issue we have to complain about is when attempting to use around interference such as high voltage wires. It is not possible to use as it simply chatters. Best to have a 2nd detector on hand for such an occasion.
