Had my hands on an Equinox This weekend

Went to and Outing in Morristown AZ, there was a Minelab rep there and she did a demo on the Equinox....Let me say, I had made up my mine that I did not need one....change of plans.
I saw it detect a wheatie placed on the door hinge of a Jeep , I saw it detect coins under a big iron bolt . I can not remember all the Great things that this machine did , but I just know I WANT ONE.....Guess it was cool due to the fact that there are only 13 working prototypes out right now and Debbie for Minelab Demoed this one for us at the outing, She also addressed the Gold Monster too.

Penny on Jeep door hinge?

So, Detector waves over the door hinge - silence (or some kind of clearly ferrous signal) - then penny placed on door hinge and without changing any settings- clear non ferrous signal?

Hard to believe, but many things that are true are also hard to believe.

A video would be nice.

Rick you wanna hear something crazy? I was detecting the farm across from my work with the Explorer2 and Sunray X-8. This was 3 years ago,but I remember it like it was 10 seconds ago,it blew my mind! I got a good repeating signal 3-28/29. I was careful to size it like I always do. I bent over and dug with my hand through a bed of leaves to retrieve what indeed was a wheat. I looked again. Then again. It was sitting on some dirt from decomposed leaves that were filling up an old upside down hubcap! THAT was the day that I decided that I would be running Minelabs from then on. Would this have happened with another machine? I haven’t tested it. But it was amazing to me at the time.
Now the wheat sitting on the hubcap itself....or a hinge....dunno. We don’t want parlor tricks,we want scientific repeatable results that work in the field. My CTX and EX2 give me results,and results-o-plenty!

If you had your hands on an Equinox---tell us about the balance/ergonomics of the detector with that 11" stock coil.-----How did it feel in the hand (balance, swing, etc.)??------We like details!:smile:quote=azdigger]

Great detector no doubt, but having to buy a POS Jeep to make it work right is unacceptable...lol

She or someone seriously needs to get that to a salt water beach...... they seem to be dragging it out here. Dirt...... now gold...... lot of people wanting to see what this does on a beach IN the salt water.

My POS jeep is about the only vehicle you can work on now days. Also..... throw away the part and easily find replacements. Oh...... and duck tap give it class.

Did anyone try that with a different detector?



The real treasure is in the marketing.

Not that I know of, most all had gold machines.
Another thing that was shown was how it was effective at finding small gold chains.
