Whites MXT Tracker
October 04, 2004
I've only had a MXT for a couple of
months and it is the first detector I've owned other than toys. I hunt
relics next to friends with their
Fishers and older White's and I am constantly hearing "That's one button
I Dug a cuff button at least 8 inches down. I'm extremely satisfied having
hunted with friends
dectorless for a few years. Impressing the veterans makes me feel like I
have a top notch machine.

This detector has it all, with a very short
learning curve.I would give it***** if it had a backlight.

i own 2 whites MXT detectors, and find
them extremely easy to use, they have great depth, and in my opinion, after
using whites detectors for
the last 16 years, one of the best detectors they ( whites) have ever made.
i cant resist though in making
a comment that im sure everyone is thinking, but don't want to say.
trey, i have no
question that the whites MXT is to difficult for you to use. you cant even
spell words like "turned" and
"minelab" correctly. you are one the extremely rare few who have ever had a
problem or complaint about

i think that whites really screwed up on this one
the stock coil sucks so you have to buy another one for it to half way work
right its a very noisey machine
makes alot of racket and i dont believe for one minute these claims of
dimes and pennies at 8-9 inches i
couldnt detect a quarter burried in the ground at 8 inches whih should have
been no problem and keep in
mind that this is a new mahine i could hear the quarter ahen i tirned the
machine in the +2 range and
then it was so unstable it couldnt identify it correctly the best machine
whites has ever made as far as
identity and depth is the xlpro 6000 even if its an analog machine its
still there best ever but it cannot hold
a candle any of the whites machines to the mineelab thats really really
where its st there top of the line

just got my new MXT today. im a long time
whites user, and have used all of there gold machines, and the XLT since
its introduction. i have to say
that this machine has to be the best that whites has ever produced. it out
preforms the XLT in every way.
depth is approximately 3-4 inches deeper than the xlt full bore, and thats
with the mxt only about 1/2 way
turned up. great machine. severely underpriced.
i think whites did a great job, but
undercut the price on it by about 300.00 bucks. a must have easy to use

I'M into my second year with this detector and
all i can say is that i love using it works perfect in every way only thing
that i have against it is that it is set
up for American market and not australian,Why couldn't Whites have made a
target display for
Australian coins when selling the detectors to aus public.

I purchased my MXT in February of 2003.
Previously, I'd been using a White's Classic ID and a White's Goldmaster 3
for nugget shooting. The
MXT has proven to be very versatile in the gold fields, and holds its own
extremely well in the coin and
Let's talk about the downsides, since these are what most people want
1) The stock 950 coil works okay, but you need to purchase the 6x9DD. It
works the best in trashy areas.
2) The display should have a backlight option, which it
does not. Some of us hunt in the evenings and this would be greatly
are the only two complaints I have. Would I buy it again? Absolutely. Is
there another detector I'd
choose? I am considering the purchase of a Minelab Explorer, but I will not
get rid of my MXT.

I bought my MXT 8 weeks ago have really
enjoyed it. The learning curve was short and easy.I do use the 3x6 DD coil
instead of the stock,noisy 950
stock coil for coin shootin, but with spring coming the 950 should work
well in the ghost towns. It's a
great machine, Scott in SLC

The MXT Tracker is more advanced than the previous top spot holder in its
category, the Tesoro Lobo ST. The MXT is designed as a high gain,
sensitive gold machine that will function as a coin/relic machine as well.
It has exceptional sensitivity to small low conductive targets. The target
display information provided by the three operating modes is well thought
out and provides real, usable information.
The TID on the MXT should be referred to often as it provides valuable
details about the type and quality of the signal. I hope White's develops
it even further in the future on new models.
Okay, so whats "bad" about this machine? Well, not really bad, but just a
caveat to you coin shooters. The MXT will NOT hunt the nasty, trash ridden
sites well with the stock coil.
The high gain circuitry necessary for finding small gold nuggets combined
with the higher operating frequency causes the MXT to be somewhat noisy in
iron and trash ridden sites and target separation lacks behind the better
dedicated coin machines using the stock coil.
It's a good thing White's has developed the DD coils for the DFX/MXT line
of detectors as they are a necessity for hunting heavy trash.
Iron ID and target separation with the large DD coil will get you thru most
sites with results on par with good coin machines albeit at the expense of
a little depth in mild soil conditions. In areas with high mineralization,
users are reporting the MXT to be on equal footing with the previous "best"
coin machine for their conditions. My wish is that White's would apply the
found in the MXT to create a new general purpose machine using the more
standard 6. 59 Khz.
Prices on top of the line machines have been creeping up lately putting
them out of the reach of the average hobbyist. A mid priced TID machine
incorporating a version of the new software based analysis found in the MXT
and having the same ease of use would be welcome. It could replace that
quirky not so hot selling QXT.

I just bought my MXT last week, and I found it to be fairly easy to use. I
found dimes at the 6" to 8" and pennies in the 5" to 7" range regularly.
I haven't had a chance to use it on a nugget hunt, but in regular ground it
will pick up a 1 penny wt. nugget at 13" (buried it), so it looks
