2nd hand, what to look for?
« on: October 07, 2013, 17:15 »
 Just wondering what are some of the things I should be looking for if I buy a 2nd hand minelab? Any help would be much appreciated.

You need to decide what you are going to hunt and where are you going to look. Lots of specialist machines around and a few all purpose machines. Not many coins machines are much use for hunting raw gold.

First I would check to see if any battery connections are corroded  or had any leaking batterys , check for white or green powder ,if any , walk away , broken leads into control box , and on the coil , shaft locks stay tight , arm rest not cracked , visually neat and tidy , I think a few scratches are not a big drama as they are put on the ground often sometimes fall over , to many could be abuse , bring some coins and crownseal and nail , test to see if it discriminates , should do for a start .
