Just my opinion but if you run that machine past 19 sensativi you’re gonna get a lot of false signals. At least I do When I run it Hot.. no need to go past 18 ,it’s plenty deep and you’ll pull coins left and right. I run in park 1, sens at 18, 5 tones, speed setting on 2 and I touch nothing else..Those are easy setting but try them, I think the sens is your problem but give it a try..
But that is your ground and no way to know what the settings are elsewhere.

True,those settings work in my ground and might not elsewhere. I've always thought my ground was highly mineralized but I'm not so sure it is. Western Pennsylvania is coal country tho,and alot of buckets of coal ash were thrown in the yards, driveways over the years and those are mostly hot rocks,lots of bleeps and blips from them . Yesterday I tried all tones in a area I usually dig everything non ferrous cause its a really old place. Nothing,not a single hit but the all tones made iron falsing a little harder to decipher than running in 5 tones

The ground here is glacial moraine and can change pretty dramatically in 15ft. I run with Tracking ON and All Tones all the time, mostly in 5kHz, and it's pretty easy to hear ferrous tones when they combine with high value responses.
Over the weekend I hit one of my permissions and it was a total bust, but I didn't dig much trash either. Only got fooled by one piece of something broken off a bronze tool and small chunky pieces of scrap aluminum.

I do not mind digging trash on an old site--it tells me a lot and I know if goodies was there I'd be hitting them.

If I'd dug even a single good target there, I might have dug more than I did. This was my second trip there and I have yet to find anything more than recent drops.
Besides that, we're in the middle of a heatwave/drought. With temps in the 90s and no rain for well over a week, and no rain in the forecast for more than another week, I didn't want to leave a bunch of dead spots in their lawn chasing iffy targets that were most likely just more trash.
