Hey all, I've been running the same GP extreme for about 6 years, and while i've found a bunch of gold with it, lately I'm noticing my hunting partner with his GP 3500 modified unit, icking up gold covering the same ground I've just been over, getting a bit frustrating.

So I'm considering stepping up to the 4000, What are you thoughts on this machine? I've sourced a couple for between $2200-2400..

Good price? is it a worth while upgrade? Can't really swing the funds for a 4500,5000 so ..

Any insight would be much appreciated..

I own a 4000 and think their a good machine,the price your looking at would in my opinion be in the ball park should have stock standard stuff,but one would expect extras maybe extra coils ,should have two batteries.Basically everthing you need to go detecting,if you cant stretch the funds for a 4500 ,the 4000 will do the job .Go for it.

lordo.1,

Thanks for the reply, I've got some wiggle room in budget, but not too much, hopefully i can find a 4000 in the right price range, form other posts i've read here, i can see that people are having decent success with them..

Thanks again.

I think for $2400 you should pick up a older 4500 thumbsup

GP extreme to 4000 gives you a lighter control box, lighter battery, and Sens Smooth timing giving you the ability to run the flat wound monos in mineralised soils. Also a smoother threshold. I say you got nothing to loose. A 12x8" or even 14x9" Evo really wakes it up on very small stuff.

Run it for a while and then keep an eye out for a 4500 or 5000 down the track.

Phase, thanks for the advice, excellent very helpful info. I actually own the 14x9 Evo currently, so it makes sense to grab a 4k and have a go..

Now i just have to find one at the right price lol..

Thanks again.

4000 is just as good as gpx 4500 for overall sensitivity and depth on all sizes gold. I owned a 4000 couple yrs and found gold. The gpx 4500 has more control over noise, was not impressed with gp3500 after running my 4000.
