Minelab GPX6000 metal detector is coming out in early April 2021 and there is plenty of information being provided from overseas but not much yet in Australia.
Here is a link to the Minelab GPX6000 page as at Feb 2 2021 it only had a 20 second advertising blurb on it so it is not of much value.
Its not yet advertised but looks like the detector will cost you around $7999 Aud in Australia.
That is only $1500 less than the GPZ7000.
Unfortunately information is limited and at this stage we can only show you what we have seen around on the internet.
Apart from the Minelab GPX6000 which is lightweight at 2.1kg it will have two coils.
The coils are waterproof submersible to 1 meter but the detector is only splash and rainproof unlike the SDC2300.
It will come with Bluetooth Headphones which are Wireless Headphones and supplied with Detachable Cable and USB Charging Cable.
It also has an inbuilt loudspeaker.
Minelab GPX6000 comes with two quick release rechargeable Li Ion Batteries 5833mAh.
Battery runtime is said to be 8 hours. (approx!)
It has an AC mains charger and also included in the box is a Battery charging cable with crocodile clips for use in vehicles.

You know what, Udo and I are still deciding whether we can actually afford another machine.
We already have 5, GPX5000's, a GPZ7000, 2 SDC2300's, A CTX 3030, Eureka, Equinox, Gold Monster and Garrett ATX - mostly to teach and show at our training seminars.
But we will probably bite the bullet and buy one, at $7999 with the loss in revenue over the past year with Covid that is a significant cost to the business.
However we will get one if only to show people at our seminars.
