    • I have battery back up plus solar to recharge battery.....even have a complete portable unit antenna and all  for remote locations.
    • My opinion is if you ar going to hunt just gold then get a gold machine , but if ya want to hunt coins / relics and some gold you can't beat an Equinox 800. You might want to call Bill Southern (nuggetshooter) and talk to him....he has some great videos on you tube ..look up nuggetshooter and you can watch them.  
    • Gold Monster 1000 seems to be the detector to get. Much less than the bigger pulse induction detectors and it's pretty easy to use, Besides that my only other suggestion, for a little more money, would be to buy a used Minelab GPX series detector. If you're just starting out with the hobby you gotta make sure you actually like the art of metal detecting. The process of swinging the coil, digging targets and moving onto the next buried treasure, just waiting to be found, is what this hobby is all about.
    • I'm impressed that you have battery backup.
    • We all know that it was the Russians.
