Have been looking at buying a second hand sdc that still has some warranty left. Three questions I would like an answer for. 1 Does the warranty cover loss of sensitivity ? 2 how do you prove loss of sensitivity if any ? 3 is there much variation in performance between any two working units ?

I think the operators would have more variation in sensitivity than the sdc , i havent heard of any dud machines or super freak ones either . But who is swinging it and the weather and ground conditions definently make a difference.


Wish in one hand and poo in the other , See which one fills up first !

Thanks aussiefarmer. I am just worried I might buy a blue beeping plastic brick and they then argue its performing normally. Maybe I should be more positive.

As with all second hand machines , if they dont have warranty proceed with caution and buy from a trusted source .
Good luck thumbsup and even a brand new one will seem broken on certain days wink

Any chance you can spend some time with it pre-purchase? Have a friend along that already has one to compare? Take some lead/gold/foil that you can have a test with?

Take a 2 grain nugget along to test prospective sdc with, if it picks that up at 2" you got a good machine.

Thanks for the suggestions. I have a few tiny nuggets/pickers from crevicing. I will see if it can pick up any of these.1510685196_20170911_103945.jpg
