ID:	1379985 Minelab gpx 4800 Black sand ! No problem! Depth! You dig till your back can't take it any more. Holes up to 3 plus feet deep for hair pins. You don't want to find a beer can at 5 plus feet. A beach might take 3-4 days to cover with other machines. But this machine will do it in one day and miss nothing. This one gets it all! It pays for itself with finds. If I lived in Fla. This is what I would use to find treasure on the beach. This ring was lost for 30 years and was up high on the beach. People have detected this beach every day for as long as I can remember. Ya It cost! But if your going to do it every day and want to find stuff on pounded beaches. Then this is what you want.

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!

    Great job on the return, this is certainly an Honorable Mention!

    I could *maybe* understand using a nugget machine like that on *some* very clean touristy beaches . So you won't miss dainty tinsel thin chains, or earing studs. And sure: You'll get nearly 2 ft. on a coin! But if the beach is prone to have nails, then you might go bonkers using such a machine.

    Humorously, there have even been people to try those machines for coin, relic, or cache hunting. It works like this: The newbie inquires: "What is the deepest machine possible, that 'won't miss anything' ?" Well, the TECHNICAL answer is a machine like those Minelab nugget machines, right ? They "won't miss anything" and "go deeper than anything else around". But you warn the newbie that he will dig a lot of junk.

    The newbie confidentally boasts that he's not afraid to dig some junk, if it will afford him the maximum depth. Imagine the newbie's surprise when he goes to the average house lot, or average park, etc... and can't even progress out of a 5 ft. square area, because every single push-pin, BB., nail, speck, etc... "rings the bells of notre dame", haha

    I would if I knew if there was buried treasure below. Good hunting and good luck.

    100% agree!

    I could see it in a few very rare situations, but the vast majority of sites / hunts have so much trash that you would spend all day and never go more than a few steps. You would literally be better off to strip mine the site and simply sift the dirt.

    You ain't lying! And I don't think my local public park would like it either. Lol
