Shopping for a new detector


#1

Hi all,
I 'am shopping for a new detector. Haven’t had a good run with 2 Garretts. In fact I’ve got a AT Pro with 2 coils going for free if anyone wants them.
Looking at a Minelab E-trac for $1,889. Anyone had any luck with one of these ?

Hi Bruce,
My boy is keen on taking up Metal Detecting as a hobby, so I would be interested in acquiring your AT Pro & coils as an early present from Santa.
.
I will be pleased to pay for freight too.

What do you think?

Steve

All That Glitters Is Not Gold ! I live in
Pakuranga Auckland and I 'am not posting it. The AT Pro turns on and appears to be working , so I think it could be the plug. I paid $40 to have it checked and they couldn’t find what was wrong. I rang the place I brought from who fix them and they said over the phone without looking at it that it would cost $500. I emailed dealers around America and Australia and they say that Garrett says you have to take it back to where I brought it from. The over seas dealers then emailed the North Shore dealer who then sent me nasty emails. I must have given them a bad name. I have another Garrett detector with another horror story.

G’day Bruce, nice to hear from.
Shame about your Garrett detectors as they generally have a good reputation. They do play up, even my Ace is playing up after six years but i will say i’ve got a great deal of worth from it so far.
Good or bad tell us about the other Garrett.

Sounds like you got a couple of duds there Bruce.i purchased my AT PRO a while back from Kelly co detectors in the states.and apart from the arm rest cracking have had a great run …ie found a lot of stuff over the years,.and still get it out of the cupboard when i get the urge.the feed back on the new atx seems ok.depends i guess on what you are hoping to find…i just purchased a gpx 5000 from the minelab dealer at rangiora and are confident if any problems arise they will be sorted…goodluck with your detecting

Ancient history, but hoping these are still available?
