Great for finding recently lost change around playgrounds. If you are
wanting something to go deep and find older coins, skip this unit. I did a
test after wondering why I was finding only modern coins at an old site and
at best I was finding quarters at 4-5" max. It does work and finds things
once you get use to it but mostly around parks and playgrounds where
recently lost items are. If you are wanting more out of a detector, I would
suggest spending more.

this for Christmas a few years back I never used it until we went to the
beach for vacation I didn't find anything there and put it away for several
months. the other day I took this out to the neighborhood park and found 3
quarters 1 wheat penny and some Australian coins!!!
I love this machine and is worth the price! I highly suggest this to any
newcomers to the hobby

Lost my wedding ring - found it in 20 minutes
May 30, 2011
I realized my wedding ring was missing yesterday. It comes off easily so I
have a tendency to take it off whenever I am doing anything where it might
fall off - but I could not find it in any of my usual places that I put it.
I was absolutely sick with the thought that it was lost. The only thing I
had done all day where it could possibly have come off without me noticing
was pulling the hose around to add some water to the pull. I had crawled
around on my hands and knees for 2 hours looking through all the grass to
find it with no luck.
I went out and bought a Tracker IV - came home - put it together - ran
through the tests in the book with coins and went out to look for it. I
have never used a metal detector before in my life. At first I had a few
hits - but not where I thought I could have lost it. Then I tried the
discriminator settings. I tested it with a couple other rings to see that
they made the lower tone beep (more of a brrrp sound). Went back out -
found one spot with that tone. My wife bent down, dug around for about 20
seconds and said "Here it is!". I could not be more happier.
I have no idea how this product stacks up against other metal detectors -
but I can say this: If you lost something important (and it is metal) go
out and get yourself one of these. I found my ring and now I have a new

Great beginner detector

This is my first detector, and I love how quickly its ease of use got me
into the field. The auto ground balance takes the guess work out of
accounting for ground mineralization, and the instruction manual does a
great job of explaining the machine.
I was a little leery of its pinpointing ability after reading some
reviews on other sites, but if you slow down your swings and use the
"cross" method after getting a beep, the Tracker iv really does quite well
putting you right on top of the target. I bought mine from Meijer.com for
$97 and find it to be well worth the investment.

This is a very good value, if you are not too dumb or lazy to use it.
The sensitivity and discrimination work very well, be sure to try it on
something similar to what you hope to find so you know what beeps it will
make. I have found hundreds of pounds of copper on mine rock piles with
mine. Just ignore that little needle that jumps back and forth.

I have found three pennies (1963,1967,1975), a BUSCH bottle cap, a 1941-P
nickel, a bullet, two shell casings, a washer, a nut, a YALE key, and 20+
I really like this metal detector.

This metal detector is great!!! Yesterday my grandfather and I were using
it and we found a 1967 penny, a key, and a 1941 wartime nickel.

As soon as I took it out of he box, I went out into the backyard and found
an Iron Maiden armband with spikes!
Yesterday me and my buddy Earl were using it near LA, and we found a ring
that said Judas Priest from the 80's.
Excellent Tool! A Real Gem!

I got my Tracker IV last week, and I love it! Already found the corpse of a
Civil War soldier, complete with rifle and bayonet. I've found several
coins from the Revolution, and even some WWII daggers. Very easy to use and
understand. The two-tone mode is excellent. Go get one today!
