The MDT 8000
I've been testing one, they make it sound like a special machine...not PI, not Multi Frequency but something different.
It's claimed to work well on highly mineralized soil and wet sand, I hope it does because inland it was average at best.
Personally I would not rank it as a £1300 machine, I would say £599.
The battery system is bonkers.
I'm pretty confident the top machines will easily outperform it in the field.
You can tell by the videos, the users are all unsure how it works, and they are all static tests.

Thanks for the feedback Gary.  :)

I have been watching this machine for a while.  With a price tag of £1,375 though, I would like more feedback from peeps in the UK before parting with any money. I only know of 2 people in the UK that use one so it doesn't look like it's caught too much attention over here.  The owner/designer has a good history in detecting electronics and the salinity adjustment is an interesting feature. Get yer money out Keith and let me know what you think.  ;D ;)

I saw a bit of media about this machine a while back and then it seemed to disappear, anyway, here's a new video of the machine where it appears to give a better signal than an F75 and Nox, although we don't know the peoples settings of course.  Anyway here it is for those who are interested. Make of it what you will, and does anyone know much about these Tarsacci detectors?

I was detecting before and just after the staffordshire hoard was found. Most farmers either didnt have people or didnt want people doing anything on their land and had lots of questions about the hobby. Now I hit one area quite heavy for requests, most have people detecting already or fedup with being asked and know aaaaaall about it.

I've had about 10-12 rejections, and all have been so lovely and polite, explaining they have some detecting already etc. And interestingly all have no PAS records in last 10 years, apart from two coins, then when talking to the land owner they've only been told about some awful finds, the areas i went to thats very unlikely. So kinda figured whats gone on here. So time to change area and try again   :o

Sooo. I decided my job was stable enough and kids a bit older that I could return to the hobby. Went out and got a replacement deus and all the coils, diggers and pinpointers.

I went around the midlands, im often in coventry, worcester and banbury. Loads of calls, letters etc. I got 3 positive responses...

One was lovely, amazing site, miles from any bit area and has a medieval moat. Should be epic...but after the chat they said will be September..

Second was kind of grumpy and stern, site was full of junk, and again...September only

Third was desperate for me to come. So I did, absolute junk yard, it was an embarassing mess, and after the chat it turned out he was a tenant farmer and land is a big No!

So the Deus sits unused, with me chewing my finger nails, cant sort membership of club until they restart so no rallies until i can get NCMD reference, boo :(

So decided to let the kids run the detector around my 4m x 4m garden and the gits pulled out 9 coins, a sword handle and a heavy brass pig lol! All from last 30 years

But as for me... zero but a machine to polish lol:'(
