Minelab GPX 6000

Minelab's GPX 6000 is hands down Australia's most popular Pulse Induction metal detector.

Without a doubt the GPX6000 is the most simple to learn, Lightest and most efficient all round gold detector, now there is another pulse Induction detector that holds the mantle the GPZ7000!

The 7000 can and will punch deeper out of the box so if you are focused primarily on large gold at depth the GPZ 7000 really should be a consideration for you. 

Back to the 6000, having owned every Minelab detector over the past 20 odd years i feel confident in telling you the 6000 is the most easy to learn, lightest and well balanced Gold Specific detector on the market bar none. If what you want is to pickup your detector turn it on and go then the GPX 6000 is the right detector for you.

All GPX and GPZ sales through Gold rat include training and we know this is the best way to guarantee your success. In saying that we can show you how to run and setup the GPX6000 in under 5 minutes and you will have a good understanding of how this particular pulse induction metal detector works.

Additionally Minelab have put together a Video Training Modular for the GPX 6000 here
