This is a brief run through on the new Garrett ATX Extreme Pulse Induction metal detector. In this video we look at unpacking and deployment, coil changing, battery changing and general operation of the controls. The ATX was extensively tested in Australia in the world’s most challenging conditions for a metal detector – from the volcanic soil of North Queensland to the ironstones of the Western Australian goldfields. In these conditions the ATX performed smoothly and found small gold in areas that had previously been ‘flogged out’ by other PI detectors. We hope you enjoy this brief introduction to the ATX – we will be heading out to the goldfields in the coming weeks to bring you more videos of the ATX. Thanks for watching – Colleen and Warren.
We are pleased to announce that we have received our new Garrett ATX Extreme Pulse Induction detector courtesy of Garrett Australia. In the coming weeks we will be uploading videos featuring the ATX with our first video being an ‘unboxing’ and run through of the basic functions and controls. We will be then undertaking field trips utilizing the ATX for relic hunting in highly mineralized soils, and of course, prospecting in the goldfields. Happy Hunting! Colleen and Warren.
The new Garrett ATX and its technology has been field tested in challenging ground conditions around the world. In the most extreme areas of Australia, our testers experienced very stable operation and clean responses on small gold nuggets.
This is a fantastic new piece of kit – built to military specifications (note that it is not the AML-1000, it just utilises the same casing). It has been tested and tuned in Australia by the Garrett Engineers, with particular attention to smooth performance in highly mineralized Aussie soils that we typically encounter in our goldfields.
Happy Prospecting Everyone!
Warren and Colleen.
