I bought this metal detector many years ago. I took it to the beach and used it twice. For many years in was in storage and was never used.
I had forgot that I even had it until recently. I unpacked it and assembled the metal detector and took it out in the back yard and used it for the 3rd time.It worked fine and I was able to find several coins and scrap metals in the yard. NOTE: The "display screen" appears to have been effected from the storage. When it was packed up years ago, I left the cover over the display and it appears that moisture became trapped behind the display screen, and effected the screen. I don't know how easy it would be to fix it or if the entire screen needs to be replaced.
After placing new batteries into the unit (batteries not included), the unit powered right up and responds to the buttons placed, and the sound worked fine. The scale of 1-12 is totally blurred but the type of metals at the top of the screen seemed to move and display well. Also responds to command buttons on the screen (power, +, -, select, reject, last mode, pin point, select, and operate) and the displays for coins, all metals, and the miscellaneous other stuff is easily identified below the blurred part of the screen. Rather they work properly is unknown, but I was able to successfully detect and locate coins & metal pieces in my yard.
I remember when I bought this, it was expensive at the time. It has a lot of accessories including: 1.Three (3) different Search Coils - 1 large Hot Head Coil and 2 smaller coils (1 Hot Head, 1 Crossfire) for more specific searches. The large Hot Head Search Coil has it's zippered protective bag. The other two smaller search coils fit nicely in the carry bag (included). Plastic Display Cover with Velcro wrap (to protect the screen) 4. Rechargeable Battery Chargers (2) - when using rechargeable batteries.
