New to me Land Ranger Pro

I just recieved a used unit today. Very impressed with how easy it is to set up in each mode. I like how the settings are retained after turning it off. Having used a few Firsat Texas machines in the past, I was very comfortable with it right away.
I plan on making 2 coil adaptors so I can switch between the 11" coil and the 8" round from my Eurotek Pro, and use the 11" coil on the ETP.
Lots of snow here in Maine, so I will not be field testing it for a while :cry:

Hi Bucksport, I purchased my L.R.P. in December and it is an excellent C/J unit. I especially like the notch width adjustment and the quiet operation even at high sensitivity settings. I think B.H. has a real winner with this detector and when word gets around they will be very popular. Best of luck and Happy Hunting.

I love mine so much........

......I bought a Quick Draw Pro and just change lower rods with the coils on them when I want a 10" concentric on the LRP.

If I had the money I would do that. Thought about a standard Eurotek, since it has a push in 8" coil.
I don't think it will cost me more than 10 bucks to make a few adapters. I might even make a few extra to sell.

Finished making my prototype coil adaptors. Now I can use both 8" and 11" DD coil on either my Land Ranger Pro or Eurotek Pro. Now to test them.

Well I thought that I did the wiring correctly, but no. I got very shallow air tests on both machines with both coils. Guess I will be de-soldering tomorrow lol.

Decided to open both units to see the wiring on the case side of the plug. Discovered that the Land Ranger is wired exactly like the legacy machines. Once that was established it didn't take long to make things work.

I am really liking this land ranger pro used it two days it is so light even with the 11 inch coil I have been playing with different setting and was happy with what i had going on but i am going to try and learn the vco option i also have the AT pro i am liking this just as well or maybe even better should have some time to learn this as i just had c4 Thur t1 fused that's right i was out while wearing my aspen hard collar 13 days post opp I did attach a detecting buddy harness to make it even less weight and most digs were in soft sand and i used light weight aluminum sand scoop I'm waiting on a blue tooth transmitter that plugs into the headphone jack to allow Blue tooth head phones to be used any ways I found a 1883 silver dollar and a 1946 half dollar my fist day out today two rings a few pull tabs few quarters Penny's were from the other day i did not dig them today at all the Pic is of about 10 hr time in two days and i move very slow right now no hurry have all summer off and i am so happy to be able to get outside again

I love my LRP but am having a time trying to get it to detect nickels. Signal moves around a lot on anything in the gold range. Do you find that? The silver area is tight and awesome, though.

Hightone....Does the LRP have a problem with nickles, gold, etc.. when using other sized coils. I've had my LRP about 2 weeks & have noticed the same problem.

I tried the 10" from the Quick Draw Pro on the LRP before winter but can't remember. I'll have to try it again this season, still cool in the mountains right now. It could be, taterbill.

I'll bring it to FTPs attention in an email to Jorge as a question. I email here and not to FTP to have Jorge address it when he gets time, not bothering him at work. So it may be a few days or so before he answers, if he does.

Mode 2 is VCO from 20-99. Extending V-Break should make low tone from 01-37 if 37 is the setting VB point. If you use Mode 4, Disc to 25, set VBreak to 29, you have 4 tones (25-29 foil is low, 30-39 is medium, 40-60 is VCO and 60-99 is high). If pull tabs are showing up in 37-40 range, you can set the notch width to 4, run it up to 41, and everything in the 37-41 range is silent (notched). Air test on nickels show below 37, usually 32-35, which would be a medium tone.
