It's obvious they aren't ashamed or they would have done something about all the different problems with the Equinox. They are selling plenty so why should they care.Minelab should be embarrassed and ashamed for putting out such a good performing metal detector in an piece of junk cheaply made plastic coil and detector control. Nokta Makro builds a machine that retails for under $300, with solid sensible design, very high build quality, and loaded with great features, and can even withstand abuse like this.
Nokta Simplex keeps on working.
Over the top, but it proves his point.. Equinox owners are kludging together their thousand dollar machines' broken coils, with duct tape, plastic wire ties, glue and maybe even chewing gum, and Minelab doesn't seem to be concerned. Shameful.
The least Minelab could do is extend the warranty.
I just hope someone else develops technology to equal the equinox soon.
