Metal Detector Hire

While an experienced metal detector operator is going to be more successful, there are times when you might prefer to use the metal detector yourself. We have some metal detectors for hire in Adelaide with pick up in Marden (North East suburb of Adelaide), South Australia.

For most metal detecting tasks the Minelab X-Terra 305 has a good balance of performance and ease of use.

Standard Hire Cost: AU$40.00/ day with $20 deposit (Will need ID)
Hire Detectors come with instruction, headphones and fresh batteries.
Pickup from Marden (near Payneham)
Other specialty metal detectors may be available for gold, wet sand (beach) and underwater tasks for a little extra. Stock varies on these, so please call.
Some accessories are available such as different coils, pin pointers and digging tools.

Metal detectors are available for hire today.

Please note that using a detector yourself may be difficult in some circumstances:

1. Metallic junk

2. Weather

3. Mineralised or salty soil/ conditions.

4. Electrical interference.

The detectors I hire out are easy to use, but detecting in general can be quite difficult so also consider calling out a detector operator which is only $75 for up to 1 hour searching INSTEAD of the $40/ day hire charge. Also note that there is no requirement for a deposit when the detector is used by an Adelaide Lost Ring Search operator.
