Detecting fever comes and goes.
I have a chance to pick up this detector for a low price, I wonder if any of you have any experience on this (or similar machines) and what they can be used to find. I think that the main use would be to find large objects at great depth, am i correct?
Now I know that at over $3300 USD it is very expensive, but would you consider it for less than $500?

SSP's are good machines (designed and built by the people who do the SEF coils that everyone seems to like) and do what they were designed for....hoard hunting. As with most of the other Polish/Bulgarian and German hoard hunter companies they gradually improved performance and supplied coils for locating small items as well.
The digital display 3000 and 3100 models allow better I.D. of unwanted items and you should check what you get with the SSP-2050 because thats an old one that was replaced by the SSP-2100. The newer version has the discriminating coils. First ones might not have this worthwhile feature. One "discriminating" coil was introduced, then others of varying sizes.
If its a hoard your after or cannons, then the early model you have been offered will do the job and at far great depth than any two box or standard pulse with a large coil.
