Minelab Equinox 800

An excellent company to deal with. I left a message and this was promptly answered with the promise of a back up call to advise when the products we need, currently out of stock, will be available. The delivery was lightening fast too. Very much appreciated. We had to download the instruction manual though, as this was not provided in the box with the metal detector, but was easy to find on-line. All in all, we are very happy with the trade :)
