Minelab developed the X-Terra 305 metal detector to be a no nonsense, easy to use machine that produces results. The 305 is perfect for the person who does not want or need all the bells and whistles of higher end equipment. The X-Terra 305 has enough punch to satisfy seasoned hobbyists, yet it is simple enough that the newest of hobbyists should have no problem using it effectively. Because of an adjustable shaft, even younger treasure hunters will have no problem using this metal detector.

The Minelab X-Terra 305 does not feature Minelab’s famed FBS technology. What it does feature is their new VFLEX technology that will allow the user to change the detectors operating frequency by changing search coils. Both (7kHz) and High Frequency (18.75kHz) coils are available for the X-Terra metal detector. Other features include ground balancing capabilities as well as preset metal detecting programs. The X-Terra also has an all metal pinpoint mode that assists in target recovery.

If your looking for a no nonsense metal detector that is extremely powerful and flexible yet easy to use the Minelab X-Terra metal detector could be just the ticket. It is priced very reasonably so that the most budget minded hobbyists won’t sweat this one. Buy one of these Minelab X-Terra metal detectors and save tons of money!

Minelab X-Terra 305 Coils

  • 6 inch 7.5 kHz concentric coil and 18.75 kHz;
  • 9 inch coil is 7.5 kHz and 18.75 per kHz;
  • 10.5 inch 7.5 kHz and 8.75 kHz coil;
  • 15 inch coil (Coiltek) of 7.5 kHz and 18.75 per kHz.

Of course, Minelab X-Terra 305 is a very interesting device and at the same time, quite simple to configure.  The buttons are large and comfortable. The screen is also large, perfectly readable. A wide range of sounds helps to more accurately determine the goal and decide whether it is worth digging. The discriminator of the device has 12 segments for each segment it’s sound tone which is duplicated by the digital identification of the targets on the screen – the VDI indicator (conditional digital values of the conductivity of the object). The higher the figure on the screen, the greater the conductivity has a target under the coil (copper, silver). Digital indicators for X-Terra 4-44.

With the acquisition of some experience, there is also the skill of correlating the sound readings with visually visible (figures on the screen), which as a result will lead to an even more reliable identification of the detected targets.
