Minelab F1A4

In Stock1

This metal detector is ex Defence Department. I have had this unit in storage for some ten years thinking I would use it one day but only ever used it once to find a sprinkler.

The unit came from the Clearance Diving Team and has its original log book.

“The Minelab range of metal detectors has been developed to meet the needs of today’s mine and explosive ordnance clearance operations…… The F14A Mine Detector has been specifically designed to provide semi-automatic switch-and-go operation. The equipment automatically adjusts Ground Balance, Threshold (Audio) and Fine Frequency (Noise Cancel), leaving the operator free to concentrate on other tasks. The F14A detector also has the ability to be used with as many as ten units operating in close proximity. The detector has been designed and built to meet de-mining requirements and incorporates safety features such as “{low battery” warning, audible “OK” signal at the end of setting cycles and includes a standard test piece.”
