Been thinking on trying to find a Quattro seen a few of them selling at reasonable prices, Have not swung a Minelab in a while since the XS. Is there any thing to watch out for defects or what have ya when looking at a used Quattro /

Been swinging a DFX and kinda miss the Minelab FBS.

Thanks for any info.

one thing to watch is the Quattro is fairly slow on the recovery side but to each its own

Being an older model, the upper housing often cracks where the mid-coil slides into it. Also the cam locks on the mid coil often crack and break. I just helped a buddy find one. We tracked prices from Nov to current. Cheapest was $240 with (2) coils, and most expensive was $420 on eBay. Take your time and a good one will pop-up.

Also, as another member mentioned, the Safari is the newer model. The processor is significantly faster. With the stock 8 or 10" coils, you will enjoy using it...but if you plan on added a big coil, then the slower processor often gets overloaded when there are multiple targets underneath the coils footprint.



...CTX, DP-Pulse, and over the years, 22 other detectors...
