Pros/ features of Bounty Hunter Track IV metal detector
Automatic ground balance
Bounty Hunter TK4 has an inbuilt automatic ground balance that prevents the machine from giving signals as a result of ground mineralization. It is easier to operate a detector with automatic ground balance than with one whose ground balance is manually adjusted from one location to another.
Bounty Hunter Track IV metal detector is rugged, making it ideal for treasure hunt in all terrains; dry ground, saltwater beaches, etc.
8” waterproof search coil
It has 8” waterproof search coil, hence it can be used for treasure hunting in shallow and muddy waters. The machine is however not submersible.
With a relatively large search coil, the search coverage is quite big within a single swing. It is important to make a swing carefully as being so fast may lead to the machine missing on some targets.
2 search modes
It has Motion All-Metal mode and Discrimination mode. Motion all-Metal mode does not discriminate but detects all metals whereas Discrimination mode detects only the targets of interests.Normally, iron/steel targets are discriminated as they are of low value.
Tone audio mode
It has 2 tone audio mode for distinguishing between targets.Low tone for targets like iron/steel objects and high tone for targets like gold, silver and copper.
It has Disc/notch controls that distinguish between wanted and unwanted targets
It allows for change in sensitivity levels when the user changes the location of hunt. Metal detectors work best with different sensitivities in different locations as different locations have different levels of ground mineralization.
Adjustable stem and padded armrest
It has an adjustable stem, making it possible for short and tall people and even kids use it comfortably.
Despite being a good performing metal detector, it goes for modest price for its quality, usually not more than 100 bucks.
Easy to use
This is a turn-on and start detector. You only need to set the sensitivity and the search mode you prefer then you are ready to go.
