  1. Hi Rick, At the last outing you and I talked about your new to you ride, and I showed you the nugget that is my Avatar...….. I guess that I have you to thank for getting me to consider a Polaris for the temporary ride while my Big bear sleeps in it's cave (storage). Hopefully the Polaris is able to do the scouting I had in mind at the time of the last outing. Having to unbury the big bear and move a ton of stuff for a week just to get it out and try to get it running again just to use it for a day or two will be a chore and a half (not to mention having to talk the person who
  2. Hi Bob, I do know the answer to your question. Unfortunately the answer is NO, Arizona titles for an ATV do not have the engine ID # on them. I just got back from titling and off road (OHV) registration of my latest acquisition. Before going to the DMV I jotted down all pertinent information off the old title about who sold it to me. As Rick mentioned the replacement title option is going to be the way for you to go on yours. I have a 2007 Big Bear 400 that has been in storage too long, If I can't locate it's title I will most likely be in for a lot of fun getting a new one. H
  3. Good job boulder dash, sounds like a few people got some gold at the outing.
  4. Well here is a few photo's that I took, Tom, you had to add the photo of the snake...… Just after I felt confident that with Max, Mike F.'s dog roaming around the main camp area that meant no rattlers was around. :( That's bad when you have to put on the snake chaps just to start the camp fire for the night. LOL Good job on the gold, most of us got skunked. Jody B.
  5. Here you go theace, You missed a great event put on by Bill S. and Debbie from minelab (said that she was out of Chicago) with Doc, Rick, and Shep present along with locals like Mike F., and Kevin Hoagland. Here is some of the photo's that I took of the outing.
  6. Hi Rick, It was good meeting you at the outing (good deal on the quad by the way, in my area it would have been about double what you said you got it for.) along with getting to put some faces to sign in names here on the forum. I also added some trash to my collection on Sunday while showing Art and his group from Pennsylvania the area . Shep showed us a neat way to put a practice target in the ground with a minimal amount of disturbance to the ground for depth testing targets. Shep also helped some of the guys running woody's modified GPX's with how to tune the modificatio
  7. Well if you haven't arrived yet, you might want too hurry the place is filling up fast.
  8. Hello, I got bored and made this quick video showing what a GPX5000 is capable of doing. If you are new to Detecting this video will give you an idea of what the machines manual is talking about, when it states a smooth and quiet threshold. This video was done in a house during a rain storm with 30+mph gusts and thunder and lightning. Lots of Electrical Interference (EMI) all around at the time. https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=1C4D6AFE708359FE!2223&authkey=!ALrOASrUeP3VenE&ithint=video%2cAVI
  9. Hi, I would be interested in learning more about Minelabs Arizona repair location and get contact info as my Dad has a GPX4000 that needs a new power switch and ribbon assembly for the rear cover. My dad would be happy if we can get it fixed locally cheaper than sending it into the main Minelab repair location in Chicago and hoping for the best and taking weeks. The original problem on his 4000 was a broken solder tab for the power switch due to the old plastic ribbon becoming brittle. While trying to see what was wrong, I got the machine to power on, but the brittle ribbon broke by the mainbo
  10. Hello, My Dad and I both own GPX5000's and I have all of Chris Golson and Johnatan Porters training video's from the Extreme (I used to have a GP3000 and kept them) to the GPX5000. The primary differences is the salt timming was improved on the 5000 (now called Salt/Gold on the 5000, and Salt-Coarse on the 4800 which is supposed to be a minor improvement on the old Salt on 4000 and older) over the 4500/4800 and older machines, along with the addition of both Fine Gold and Coin and Relic timmings (only available on the 5000). The 5000 also has an option to turn off the ground balance
  11. One day my dad an I was out at rich hill when I convinced him to put away his VLF and try his 4000. His 4000 did just as described above and would not power on at all, we thought maybe he just forgot to charge the battery. We packet up and drove down to the local dealer and asked some questions and let him test the 4000 with a known working (just powered a for sale unit). That's when the dealer told us about the 4000's power button issue and he showed us one that had been fixed with the 4500 type switch. I ended up trading in my 3000 for a new 5000 and after dad got his new 5000 I talked him i
  12. Steve, I just read the GPX5000 review that you did on your web site. With your comments about the ergonomics of the GPX5000 and how a waterproofed hybrid mix of the GPX5000 electronics in a CTX 3030 like housing would be nice, and with the way this post started, makes me wonder if minelab was listening to you. Should be interesting once they release the new machine (or at least more info about it).
  13. What my guess is: A GPX4800 like up-graded and Waterproofed consumer F3/F3L variation. once the new model is released it will be like a few years back when the GP2100v2 & GP2200v2 where offered as the reduced priced PI models, but this time sounds like they are intentionally going after some of the ATX's market share(an even cheaper alternative to the GPX4800). Seems like a likely conclusion both the F3/F3 Compact (although I think that the F3/F3L looks the most like the garret design) and the GPX4800/GPX5000 are all current production models. It would be relatively easier to mix the F3/F3
  14. Hey mike, You are mostly right but the AMF due's are now $44.00(went up about two years ago). The rest is spot on, have to be a member in good standing and the $250.00 transfer fee.
  15. Looks identical to the one on my GMT right now (also have the white gold max coil)
