WHITES 6000 XL PRO TESTS




 

Comments

No idea why these are so sought after?
Maybe because is has a Meter?
Why are there no decent Meter detectors available nowadays?
Definitely a market for them, not every one wants a digital readout.
But if any manufacturer out there thinks 'that's a good idea'
Don't make it as bad as this
Unless i'm missing something this is probably the whose detector i have ever tested.

Pros

After some thought only thing i can think of is 'it's well made'. like most Whites
Very easy to test because it did not pick anything up!

 

Cons
 

Totally useless among iron
No sensitivity to anything
No depth hardly
Heavy

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

9.5’’

Whites 950 Standard Coil

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

NO

GEORGE 111
HALFPENNY

MAXIMUM DEPTH

8’’

5 PENCE MAXIMUM DEPTH

8’’

CUT ¼ OF HAMMERED PENNY MAXIMUM DEPTH

NO

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

NO

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

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

2 NAILS BURIED AT 5’’ DIRECTLY ABOVE IT

NO

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

2 NAILS SITTING ON TOP OF COIN

NO

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

NO

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

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

NO

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

BURIED AT 2’’

NO

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

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

NO

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

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

YES

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

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

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

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

CAN IT FIND A GOLD CHAIN WHEN COKE IS REJECTED

NO

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

NO

CAN A GOLD CHAIN BE FOUND WHEN COKE IS NOT REJECTED

NO

CAN A LOW COND CUT ¼ BE FOUND WHEN COKE IS

NOT REJECTED

NO

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

NO
