There are 3 modes to choose from.
GC-1011 is free to assemble it. It's also very easy to use.
Yes, it can be used on the beach. But be careful of the control box, the box is not waterproof!
This metal detector is only 1.5lbs. it's lightweight for adults and teenagers. But we'd recommend the GC-1011 for a 5-year-old. GC-1011 is more light and easier for kids.
It would depend on many factors. First how big the buried object is. For example, a quarter may get 6" while a garbage can lid might come in at 18".The second is how much discrimination you use. On all metal, you will get more depth but pick up more trash items. Under ideal circumstances, you would never even pick up that trash can lid if you had iron nulled out.Other factors are too many to name but soil condition, moisture of grass, and sensitivity settings are all going to count towards depth.
In short my kid loved it, and can't wait to get outside and find some buried treasure!!
I really like how light weight it is, and adjustable for height. It did seem to eat up the battery quickly, but that could be a weak battery that they provide. Overall a well made product that my son rally enjoys.
I tested it and found that it seemed to work pretty well, given the price ($79.99 at the time of this review, which seems a little high to me.) There is one button to cycle through the three sensitivity levels and a small "Pinpoint" button on the handle to help narrow down where to dig.
This is made for and marketed for kids aged 5-12 and is probably a good way to expose them to the hobby - especially if you hide some things for the younger ones to "find." However, there are cheaper options for entry-level detectors out there.
Comes with little shovels for kids or adults to use and dig stuff up
It seems nice overall and I like the design.
