    I have one of the older models...With the cave function. I havent owned it long, but have found it to be very stable and sensitive in the field. Sorry but I can't add any more at this time..Steve

    Seriously, I would like to know. I am considering buying one this summer.

    Has anybody ever found anything of value using a two-box detector?

    I have one for many years, not the best of the two box units. Less sensitive than is predecessor the TM-800.
    If you can get a Discovery TF-900, its the same as the older whites except now they dont put a meter on it (dont know why)

    The sensitivity is lacking, remember that two boxes dont read targets like a loop detector, they gradually increase intensity so it takes practice to tell a deep target. Large superficial no problem.

    I do better with my DFX and an 18" DD coil than with my TM-808

    if it ever quit snowing I could go out and have a look with it. But I am starting to think a 18inch coil might be better to. just hear enough positive things about tm 808

    I have a TM 800

    I am newly learning and like it

    It picks up well and with practice I think I can
    tell what it says to me better

    practice makes you better with any machine

    The TM808 was never designed for treasure hunting. All the early ads said it was for industrial work like locating septic tanks. I had one and and was not impressed. Worked fine in air tests but that's a bout all. May pick up a car body buried at five feet or not. Tim Williams (LRLMAN) has a reasonably priced logger unit that will increase the depth considerably. One guy said he found a small screwdriver at three feet with a different brand two box and the Acr Geo Logger. Check the Geophysics page for info. Tim will be at the Texas Treasure Show in Longview TX Mar 21-22. Biggest treasure show in the country.

    I have found plenty with my Hays 2 Box. The latest was a 50cal ammo box at 6'. Most don't talk about specific finds for obvious reasons. Frank...

    PS: I have used the Garrett 2 Box conversion, but couldn't get over 3' down with it. Sold it a week after buying it. Frank...
