  1. Today
  2. Wow that was fast, found one, thank you all.
  3. Hi all... I'm looking for a GPX battery with dead or near dead cells, I only want it to repair one I have with good cells but bad amplifer board. Let me know if you have one and let me know how much you want for it. If you have just the amp board I may take that as well. Thanks Jen
  4. I would try to get the SD2100 for 650.00 or less, if not, save a little more and get a newer model Minelab. I would also suggest NOT purchasing a TDI. Stick with Minelab
  5. And 6 months later Minelab provides an answer: “Hello Rod, From one of our engineers: "The nature of the device that is used does not affect the warranty. A Linux box can be used without issue. A phone with a USB adapter has been used in the past. The mechanism that is used to perform updates was specifically chosen to be a Mass Storage Device so that it could be most generic." I hope that helps! Tracy Customer Care & BDM Administrator Minelab Americas”
  6. I have an as new 8"x14" Sierra Gold Max DD coil and rod for sale for $120 shipped in conus. It works with the newer Gold Masters including the GMT. Just the 8"x14" not the 4"x6"
  7. Yesterday
  8. Thanks for the info, i do appreciate. I know the difference between them. I had a TDI a while back but had to sell it because i thought i was going to have to make a trip to Mich. because my dad was not doing well. But he is ok now and i am looking for a machine to replace it.
  9. Minelab SD 2100 value

    Hey Rod, There are huge differences with a PI vs. VLF, but each have their advantages. The new ML Gold Monster 1000 is a VLF gold detector, which is extremely sensitive to small gold. The VLF will struggle in medium to high mineralization, where a PI will just purr through it. The VLF's are also much lighter and easier to use all day. The major advantage of a PI is the mineral immunity and depth (typically 2-3 times the depth of a conventional VLF). For the price of under $1000, I would consider a used PI. The TDI and SD 2100 are around the same class. I have always been a Minelab fan, the the TDI is a great unit also. The SD 2100 will be easier to use, the TDI has some functions like Pulse Delay and such that kind of confuse new PI customers. If you can get either for around $700, they are both worth a look at.
  10. This coil has now been sold! (pending payment) Thanks, Don
  11. Dropping the price to $145 with Free Shipping! -Don
  12. The Whites TDI is a PI machine too
  13. Minelab just confirmed that any ferrite ring is ok to use with the GPZ via email. I also used this opportunity to get an answer to a 6 month old question, you can see the thread here >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Hello Rod, After speaking with our technician he feels that an aftermarket ferrite ring should be ok to use. Thank you, Tracy Customer Care & BDM Administrator Minelab Americas >>>>>>>>>>>>>>
  14. Minelab SD 2100 value

    I'd say the 2100, Although, minelab will not repair or support them anylonger, they go deeper, and they are a PI dector, I've heared good things about the GM 1000 also, but they are not a PI. Grubstake
  15. Last week
  16. Rob, your a Minelab dealer. What would be your recommendation between the Old 2100 and the New GM1000
  17. How would you say the old SD 2100 compares to the newer Whites TDI SL used for about the same price?
  18. No worries.... where are you located? Phoenix by chance?

    Hey Afriscot, Real nice batch of gold you recovered. I would recommend chasing the bedrock down to the deeper bedrock areas if you're getting that on the more shallow stuff. It might be real interesting to see what might be hiding deeper, especially if the old-timers never beat you to it. Keep us updated with your success metal detecting. You always seem to be finding some great gold and inspiring us that it's still out there to be found.
  20. Hey Brian and others, No real talk about the GPZ or anything new coming out along those lines. The new focus from what I gathered is Minelab really concentrating on the coin/relic market once again. There was some talk about getting the XChange software updated and doing more with it, but they didn't go really into any solid details. I'm sure in the future we will hear more from Minelab on this. No question, Minelab is moving forward with Advanced Technology and much better Support than we have seen in the past.
  21. Minelab SD 2100 value

    Hey Rod, I would check it out, if it works well it's worth $700.00. It's a great PI, so you will get good depth, good sensitivity to smaller bits and great mineral immunity. I found a lot of nuggets with the SD 2100 back in the day. There are a lot of aftermarket parts and searchcoils that will also help increase performance even more.
  22. I'd let the monster go for 550. Everything else has sold. Jen, please accept my apologies. Thought someone might just toss out an offer on both machines.
  23. I have a chance to buy a lightly used SD 2100 with 2, maybe 3 coils if the old fella that has it can find the other one. I think i can get it for around $700. Is this a fair price and is the 2100 a decent nugget detector. And help appreciated. Thanks
  24. ... Change direction ... Diamondbacks are the residents here ... we're just visiters! This one might make me change directions and RUN!
  25. Congrats on your first nuggie. Hope you find more soon.
  26. First detector gold for me.

    I went back and cleaned out the crack where my first detector gold came from.... I can only imagine what is waiting. I think i have the fever again....
