Minelab 5000 very good value for money

by Bob Broadbent

The 5000 is most definitely quieter and will handle hot ground better than my old 4500 in some areas that I work there is a percentage of red magnetic slate the 5000 cuts through with ease where I struggled to maintain ground balance on the 4500.

Likewise red clay.

I had no trouble stabilising my 4500 in WA but I am thinking that the 5000 would even be workable in normal settings there.

5000 Report Upgrade
by: Bob Broadbent

Since I wrote the first comments about this machine i have refined settings and in doing so have come to realise just how good this machine is. I kept all my aftermarket coils (coiltek) and use them exclusively as I had used them with my 4500 and knew their capabilities thoroughly. All I can say is that with a known series of coils and using the machine on familiar ground some of which is extremely mineralised that this machine is far better than my old 4500. In FACT if I use the machine in normal settings the maximum coil that I can use is a 14 mono without picking up the pick on my belt. Very happy.
