GPX 6000 anyone had any luck?

Just curious to know does anyone have any experience here in Tassie with a GPX 6000? I would have thought they would be well suited to tassie on the sub gram smallish gold that is mainly found here. I have heard they can be a bit more noisy than the older GPX machines. Wondering if it’s time to sell the 5000 in and go for a 6000. Don’t reckon I can convince the misses to let me have both machines.

What Andrew said! The only downside is that you can recover all the shotgun pellets and flakes of rust that the other guys miss. :joy:
Otherwise it’s good at going over old flogged ground and still gold.

About 20 tiny pieces from a creek in the west. 6000 is pretty good. Gotta send back my 11inch coil. Goes nuts frequently .

Some very nice gold there. My machine seems to do a similar thing Warren and the only way I can settle it down is to noise cancel. Sometimes even twice. I’m wondering if there may be a firmware update coming at some point to rectify this as it may just be software related. Any minor source of EMI seems to set the 6000 off for me, sometimes when it’s not an obvious source.

I’d found very sensitive to emi as cars bikes machine’s etc coming past will set them off

Even when near a tiny airport, such as in the Whipstick near Bendigo every airplane nearby will set it off. Not sure why.
