The new Aldi catalog just arrived in Melbourne this weekend. In it is a lot of camping stuff, and a metal detector for AUD$119. I searched online and actually looks the same as Kogan $140 "Kogan 300mm Deep Target Waterproof Metal Detector", and Amazon $175 "300mm Deep Sensitive Metal Detector Set Gold Digger Treasure Hunter, High-Accuracy....". But the Kogan and Amazon ones come with a pinpointer, shovel, and headphones....the Aldi description only mentions it comes with a bag. I'm guessing the Aldi one might come with the other 3 things - that would be good value i guess.

Looking in this forum, Aldi had another detector some years ago but looks different. Anyway, starting the thread for this new one...
Anyone know if it's any good since it's based on some other budget model that seems to be around for sometime?

I found a review for it; it's also under the brand Sakobs (in USA)...but i can't post links i just joined this forum sad
Just put https in front of this,..

Ahhhh....further searching...this detector is made in china....all over AliExpress. So now you know where to get it the cheapest.. sort of! and delivery estimate is really quick for Ali....like couple of weeks. But it seems like Kogan etc...have good package deals on this what with included bag, and other accessories. So amazingly the local aussie deal is really good.

Wow detecting being hyped this week in the media....Melbourne 3AW Tony Jones talking about it yesterday Tuesday 16th Dec 2020. Minersden guy was interviewed..... Now Kogan priced jumped to $170 lol..or join their Amazon prime equivalent and get for $140 (and forget to cancel that prime thing on credit card and end up paying too much). Can't be bothered with that so I ordered it off Ebay in the end for $150 including pinpointer and accessories same as Kogan.
By the time i get it there will be no more treasures left what with all this hyping at this time of the year and thousands of aldi ones about to be sold.
Actually i want the Bounty Hunter Tracker IV but i'm not paying $250 for it.....so i can wait and use this in the meantime.
God there are sooo many chinese detectors in amazon and eBay...so many different types....so confusing....
