Equinox Metal Detector Range

Equinox Metal Detector Range

The Minelab equinox range grows every year with a Huge offering right across 4 price points. The aftermarket equinox accessories mean you and can pick a model in your price range and kit it out with features and accessories not in the standard offering.

Points of difference to note:

The equinox 600 and 700 do not have a gold mode

The Equinox 600,700,800 and 900 all have forwards and backwards compatible coils so if you upgrade you can continue using your favorite coil.

The headphones for 600-800 equinox series will not work on the new equinox 700 - 900 series.

Target ID on the 700-900 series is much wider allowing for better target separation meaning you'll dig less junk or non target items.

The 700-900 series equinox detectors have compact shafts and a flash light , additionally  vibrational feedback via the detector.

These are some of the significant differences between models but more specs can be found here in the product brochures.
