    Question Tesoro Outlaw Depth Problems

    Hey guys I have a Tesoro Outlaw which I bought used that has an issue with its depth. During air tests it will sometimes pick up a penny at around six to 7 inches and then it would have trouble picking it up at 2 inches! Now it seems when I turn the machine on it can't pick up penny sized objects until its about 1 inch from the coil( the coil is the stock 8 inch donut).I understand that this machine has manual ground balance. I have also used this machine quite a few times on the field and did pick up some shallow coins but recently it's been very chattery and falsing out a lot too no matter what I do with the ground balance. Am I using the machine right? Or does the machine have an issue that Tesoro will have to fix? Thanks.

    Have you called the factory and described your problems? That would be my first suggestion.

    I'd determine if the battery is up to snuff before doing much else. I've been bamboozled a time or two because the new, replacement battery gave the same puzzling actions as the older because it wasn't good, either.
