After I finished the sewer work, I scanned the rest of my small front yard.. I haven't thoroughly worked it yet, but I've found a few clad coins, a boy scout medallion, and a little cheepie silver ring.
Can't go wrong for the price.

Fantastic little machine.

A month with the Bounty Hunter Tracker 4
The first thing I said when I took the tracker 4 in the box was: Wow! Is something inside the box? This is a very lightweight machine,
I decided to do tests at different fields before giving my review.
At the backyard: After doing air tests using various metal objects I went to my backyard and found several iron relics and a 1997 coin :), no gold for now, this detector should locate a coin at 6 inches depth, I'm almost sure things were left behind and I will cover up my backyard again in the future with an upscale metal detector.
At the beach: I went to a private beach to try my new gadget, I have to say it's a great machine in this kind of field, the lightweight and the tone ID makes a very practical way to swing for hours without the need of watching at a screen.
Conclusion: the tracker 4 is a superb beginner's machine for the price-value principle, if the ace250 and the tracker 4 were at the same price probably I would rather went with the ace250, but for the price difference I took the tracker 4 and save the money for my next upgrade that will be a deeper machine, I'm almost sure will be a Tesoro. For now I'm satisfied with my tracker 4.
If you are beginner wondering around trying to get a good metal detector for a low price and to give metal detecting a try, this model is for you, save the rest of the money for the next best machine in case you get the metal detecting bug.
Pros: lightweight, two tones identification and a broken tone for pulltabs, battery duration, easy to use
Cons: bulky module (could be a little narrower to carry it better in a bag), bad for trashy areas, no pinpoint.
Mandatory: Use a coil cover to avoid damages;
Use a pair of headphones, believe it or not it makes a HUGE difference, it would be also easier to pinpoint.
See you next time!

BH is real sensitive to silver objects. I also found some lead civil war rounds 1 ft down. Of course, fro shallow stuff this BH model is excellent.

Today was a great day
The last two days my husband and I have been working outside in the yard, raking, weeding and planting. Last night he realized his $700.00 wedding ring was missing.
After combing the yard with our tracker for 3 hours, we found it.
So happy are we. We will never give up our tracker and now really look foward to using it much much more.
Our advice, be patient and play with those settings, test them over and over on objects you know.

The only draw back to this detector is that you don't exactly know how deep to dig, but using the bounty hunter pippointer has solved that mystery.

Great Machine for the money
If you are new to metal detecting, give yourself some time to get the hang of it and this machine will serve your needs for at least the learning process, if not years to come.
While I would love to have one of those thousand dollar detectors, this one will do fine until I can get that $20 gold piece I can use to buy the top of the line machine.
If you want to give metal detecting a try, this cheap little detector is a good place to start.
