Not much mention about the E.U.D Function? I thought this would of been a Big selling point also due to a lot of high frequency detector’s not getting a great deal of depth!.

What EUD actually is has not yet been presented by Makro, but I think it may be to do with improved detection of fringe targets in mineralised soils.

Eagerly anticipating our first shipment to arrive, can't wait to test the Gold Kruzer out on the Maldon and Muckleford Gold Fields.

Quite impressive depth and recovery speeds too.

Those air tests were not too bad, better than some machines

Maybe even air testing depth better than my CTX. yikes Hard to tell from the view perspective and coil size though.

Very keen to see the results of the goldfield test.
Will be interesting to see how it performs compared to the gold racer which I did ok with on the gold.

The moment we have stock I'll be out with one giving it a go. thumbsup

Looking forward to that.
With the gr at 56 kHz and the Kruzer at 61 would you expect them to be similar in their performance on the goldfields?
It looks user friendly too which I also found with the gr after breaking it in and getting used to how it operates.
Like that it’s water proof too.

Since E.U.D. will not work in GEN and Beach Mode when using the Kruzed, it is likely to gain a little extra depth in Disc. modes at the expense of changing the tone ID's into a single tone.

Yes I would expect they would be very similar, but hopefully the Gold Kruzer is even better.

The Impact had more refined audio over the Racer 2. I also found the Au Gold Finder to have a touch more stability and clarity of signal over the Gold Racer, so I hope they've used the Au Gold Finder circuit as a base for the Gold Kruzer.

The multi frequency looks like a replica of the Impact without the mineralisation meter which is a must in the GT as when it reads 90% there is a higher chance of finding nuggets.Not as many features and modes as the Impact but that can be a good thing as well as bad. On the Impact you have two ID scales for different modes and on start up it will utilise the standard 14 Khz scale.When using 20 Khz for gold you need to change the scale to standard so it will give a greater spread of ID,s between iron and gold and not cause you to make a wrong call based on ID,s.I expect the same problem with the multi frequency Kruzer. The 61 Khz Gold Kruzer would not GB at 80 to 90 % mineralisation so would be useless in parts of the GT. I would have liked to see a 19 Khz model like the Racer 2 solely for prospecting in the GT with about 6 modes and a lot lighter than the Impact and of course waterproof against rain.


A happy marriage means not having to spend all your days at the pub and so go detecting more often.

The multi frequency model is of course much more versatile as you can hunt for nuggets in winter and go beach detecting in summer for silver coins and relics. I am taking mine overseas to detect river beaches on Europe's longest river.This plan was devised only after I bought the Impact so in hindsight I got two detectors in one.

The Kruzer does have a mineralisation meter (bar meter) in the top right corner, so should be fine. A very nice machine going by what I've seen from various tester's clips.

The Gold Racer was my first detector and as well as being effective on tiny gold for me(as well as one over 1 gm),I recon it’s a beauty to use in the right location.

Stability has been a problem as I expect at 56 kHz,and at 61 kHz I guess the effective use of sens and isat are all important.

NO HYPE NO WAITING ? so Are they available yet. ??

One seller have them available on eBay Australia, but the delivery time seem to suggest there will be a delay, like 4-5 weeks.

One seller in Turkey had them on eBay "pre order" but they are now no longer there. ?

The release date was always February. There's a lot of interest in these machines.

We have them available for pre-order. We expect to have stock and fill pre-orders in 2 weeks.

That's the USA and Europe.

We order direct from Nokta/Makro.

The Multi has taken me by surprise. I was waiting for the new Minelab but now I'll be purchasing a Kruzer instead. I already have a Nokta and know just how good these sister brands are. Can't wait.

Keep in mind that the Kruzer Multi isn't a true multi-frequency detector but a selectable frequency detector. The Equinox is a true multi-frequency machine that can also be independent frequency selectable - depends what you're after of course but some are getting confused with the use of multi-frequency as a description & expecting all frequencies to transmit simultaneously.


Everything we use comes from mining or farming.

Except there's a catch.
