I’ve briefly seen one of these (or a very similar model) in action. I would say its fine for your first detector but it’s obviously a cheap unit and won’t perform like a $300+ one. If it is your first detector my only advice is don’t get discouraged if you’re not finding too much with this machine. I'm sure you will find stuff with this detector but I've heard of people buying either a cheap detector or one that isn’t suited to their needs, then giving up prematurely because they aren’t finding anything or what they expected to be finding anyway, in this hobby you need to have real expectations and a lot of patience.

Once it shows up, if you wouldn’t mind doing some air testing and reporting back it would be appreciated.

The depth gauge is a little iff i guess that's cos there's. allot of rust in the dirt let from old fence wire

Yeah that can be a pain, are you able to discriminate it out? Also try a few different areas and see how it goes.

The depth gauge should only be used as a rough indicator anyway, they're usually not 100% accurate.
