Garrett Ace 250 New users guide

-Detectorstuff member Ian Pettigrew (AKA draaiorgel) has written up a great new users guide with tips and helpful information on the Garrett Ace 250! Many thanks to Ian for his contribution….


All about the Ace 250 for newbies.

I had read on many MD forums about what a fabulous machine it was and
the price was right.

Minelab Explorer 2 user review by Eu_Citizen

Eu_Citizen submitted this Minelab Explorer 2 review in the DetectorStuff User Reviews section of the forums. Feel free to write reviews of your own or comment on ones that are already here. Thanks for the submission Eu!
 

Ex2Well when you take it out of the box… It looks plain weird, not really impressive at first. After a while I did get used to the looks of it.

You’ll note it’s easy to put together. And will need adjusting to your length, otherwise it’s going to feel real heavy. (i.e. arm cup, lower rod need adjustments)

It’s not to bad when you’ve done that.

Ok when skimming through the manual you’ll note there aren’t many adjustments, just more or less weird names for them.

Just learn them. Oh and it is a bit noes heavy, if to heavy opt for another coil.

In the field:

Lot’s of adjustments, you could ruin a whole weeks worth of detecting if you’d start out right away and try to adjust everything.
