GARRETT AT MAX TESTS



Comments

Very popular Detector

I was very surprised by it’s performance, thought it would be a lot better.
A lot better when tested with a Mars coil

Will be interesting to compare it to a AT Pro when I get one to test

Pros

Deep seeking on normal sized coins and artefacts

Waterproof

Average weight

Headphones superb

Cons

Not good on wet sand (I am told)

Signals very scratchy ,VDI Numbers jump all over the place
(Signals on deep targets a lot clearer)

Poor among iron with stock coil

Poor on low conductive targets with stock coil
 

DEPTH TESTS

The depth tests are set up to gauge the power of the detector, all iron is removed from the hole.

Various size items are buried at good depths

COIL SIZE

11’’ x 8’’

Standard Coil

10'' x 6''
Mars Sniper Coil

CAN A CARTWHEEL PENNY BURIED AT 16’’ GIVE A SIGNAL

YES

NO

GEORGE 111 HALFPENNY

MAXIMUM DEPTH

13’’

10''

5 PENCE MAXIMUM DEPTH

12’’

11''

CUT ¼ OF HAMMERED PENNY MAXIMUM DEPTH

4''

CAN A HOARD OF 100 MIXED COINS BURIED AT 18’’ GIVE A SIGNAL

YES

YES

DISCRIM TESTS

The tests below are to see if the detector is capable of giving a signal on a non ferrous target while iron is placed on top of it and around it at different depths

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A 20 PENCE BURIED AT 8’’

2 NAILS BURIED AT 2’’ DIRECTLY ABOVE IT

NO

NO

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A 20 PENCE BURIED AT 8’’

2 NAILS BURIED AT 5’’ DIRECTLY ABOVE IT

NO

YES

CAN A GET A SIGNAL FROM A 20 PENCE BURIED AT 8’’

2 NAILS SITTING ON TOP OF COIN

YES

YES

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A HAMMERED PENNY 20 NAILS ALL AROUND IT BURIED AT 2’’

NO

YES

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A HAMMERED COIN BURIED AT 2’’

A LARGE/RUSTY IRON HOOK IS BURIED 3’’ BELOW IT

NO

YES

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A HAMMERED PENNY NEXT TO 4’’ BOLT

BURIED AT 2’’

YES

YES

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A 20 PENCE BURIED AT 2’’

2 NAILS ALSO BURIED AT 2’’-NAILS 4’’ APART COIN BETWEEN THEM

YES

YES

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A 20 PENCE BURIED AT 5’’

2 NAILS BURIED AT 2’’ DIRECTLY ABOVE IT-4’’ APART

YES

1/2

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A 20 PENCE BURIED AT 8’’

WITH 2 NAILS BURIED AT 2’’ DIRECTLY ABOVE IT 4’’ APART

NO

NO

CAN I GET A SIGNAL FROM A 20 PENCE BURIED AT 6’’

WITH 4 NAILS BURIED AT 5’’ DIRECTLY ABOVE IT

4 NAILS AT 7’’ DIRECTLY BELOW IT AND 4 NAILS ON THE SAME LEVEL

NO

YES

COKE/SENSITIVITY

A few low conductive targets will give the same signal as Coke , so if you are rejecting Coke you may miss them

WILL THE DETECTOR REJECT COKE

YES

YES

CAN IT FIND A GOLD CHAIN WHEN COKE IS REJECTED

NO

YES

CAN IT FIND A LOW CONDUCTIVE CUT ¼ WHEN COKE IS REJECTED

NO

YES

CAN A GOLD CHAIN BE FOUND WHEN COKE IS NOT REJECTED

NO

YES

CAN A LOW COND CUT ¼ BE FOUND WHEN COKE IS

NOT REJECTED

NO

YES

CAN IT FIND A LOW CONDUCTIVE VERY THIN SILVER EARRING BURIED AT 2’’

NO

NO
