Sierra madre the deepest detector
March 26, 2016
I use the 15" coil and it goes over 4 foot deep. Found a safe at 3.5 feet
and an old car at 5 feet. The only drawback is all the deep digging you
have to do. The car was a 20's car that was in a flood and I found it in a
river bed. The safe was large and heavy and I used an engine hoist to get
it out of the ground. Unfortunately it was empty and looked like the door
was blown open with some sort of explosive. Found it in in a dry river bed
under a RR trestle.
With the 9" coil I found a Morgan at 2 feet
plus and find quarters at 18" plus. No discrimination to hinder the depth,
it's just wide open and goes deep and finds everything. This is he best
detector I have ever owned or used. Super easy to use and the meter works
great. Highly recommended!
Max Depth: 18 inches on US quarter

Ul-3 / sierra madre - awesome deepth

This is just a no frills deep seeker, period. The standard 950 coil
provides excellent coverage on the White's UL-3 / Sierra Madre detector. I
really like the auto ground balance/tracking and the straight forward
informative analog meter. This is one machine that perfect for finding
DEEP targets. I prefer it over ANY of the plastic case sporting goods
store cheap machines, reason, DEEPTH!. Do not let the low cost of the
AWESOME White's machine fool you.. .
