Gary's travels with the 3030

Here is the link to Gary Drayton's CTX 3030 testimonial https://www.minelab.com/anz/go-minelabbing/treasure-talk/the-ctx-3030-road-warrior
I wish I kept track of how many times mine has been taken down and traveled over seas without a hitch.

That's interesting.
I wonder how many weeks he waits when he sends his 3030 to Kellyco for service.:smile:
Nice commercial.

FWIW -- Kellyco does not do the service for Minelab anymore. Minelab has a new repair facility...

I'm fully aware of that but that is new and if you follow the timeline , the service center was Kellyco during most of 2017.
The salient point being do you think he receives the same service as you and I ? ,,,,,hence the nice commercial.

OH, gotcha. Yep, indeed it was Kellyco for most of 2017. Wasn't sure if you knew it had changed.

I'd be willing to bet he doesn't have to worry as much about "abusing" his unit as we do, for the reasons you cited... :)

Yes , the irony is inescapable , especially after Minelab put Jamie forth on the forum to attempt to deal publicly with some of the durability and service issues they were confronted with. I will give Minelab kudos for finally addressing it , even if it was conveniently just before the announcement and introduction of the Equinox.

I understood the repair reference without the explanation. Just saying

I wonder if the lack of service near the end was due to a service contract expiring. The new repair center certainly seems to have taken off like a rocket ship. That says a lot.

I think you guys referencing the term "breakdown" are taking it out of context. From what I read it refers to disassembling his detector to make it fit in luggage.
I also read where it didn't give him any problems, meaning no repairs :shrug:
