Yes, it has finally happened! The Makro Metal Detectors announced three new metal detectors release: Kruzer, Multi Kruzer, and Gold Kruzer. These machines are actually different: Multi Kruzer is multi-frequency, Kruzer has only one frequency, and Gold Kruzer model has a frequency of 61 kHz which means it is designed for prospecting gold nuggets.
Makro Kruzer, Makro Multi Kruzer, and Makro Gold Kruzer are created keeping in mind the benefits of the previous series. To find out all the details about each model, check out these Makro Multi Kruzer review, Makro Kruzer review, Makro Gold Kruzer review all in one post!
In general, the metal detector has many new features and advantages, including:
- Waterproof up to 5m, IP68 standard. By the way, this is the world’s first metal detector that meet the IP68 standard
- Enhanced mode “Beach”
- Excellent discrimination and definition of targets in the ground
- Fast recovery speed in 3 tone mode (performs with sensitivity up to 90)
- The new function of E. U. D (Extra Underground depth) for working on the heavily iron-clad soils, and in areas with highly mineralized soil. Can perform on the beach with salty water.
- 6 search modes
- Configurable depth of target definition
- The kit includes wireless headphones (WiFi 2.6 GHz). Hold up to 19 hours without charging.
- The ability to charge the battery with powerbank
- The cassette for AA batteries is also waterproof. 5 extra coils, including 1 mono coil
- Auto Software update
In the upper left corner of the control panel, there are 6 search modes, under the word “MODE”. Let’s analyze each mode separately:
GEN mode is like “All Metals” mode in other metal detectors, but with one important difference: you can adjust the threshold tone level (THREAD), which is very important for searching small coins and relics. Recommended to use for digging those “old places” where you have already been earlier. It’s the second deepest search mode among all, after the special DEEP mode, of course.
Two-tone discrimination mode. Iron will give a lower tone, and everything else — a higher tone. In this segment, iron targets are on the scale to the value of 15, from 15 to 99 — targets of non-ferrous metals. You can change the key transition to your preference by using Tone Break.
Three-tone discrimination mode. Iron gives low tone, and the non-ferrous metals are divided into two colors — medium and high. Low tone is for targets from 0 to 15, medium tone is for targets from 16 to 66, and high tone for targets from 67 to 99. You can change the key transition to your preference by using Tone Break. If the sensitivity is up to 90, this mode is the fastest in response speed, which means you can use it perfectly on the trash.
Four-tone discrimination mode. In this mode, iron gives low tone, and non-ferrous metals are divided according to 3 different tones. Low tone from 0 to 15, low to medium tone from 16 to 30, high to medium tone from 31 to 66 and high tone from 67 to 99.
Beach mode. Specially designed for beach search in the tide zone and on wet sand, as well as in water! You can also search on the fresh plowing where the ground is wet and mixed. In this mode, the ground balance level is open to 0-99, which makes this setting much better. Also, the level of discrimination is set at 15 to discriminate and cut off the response from soil and ferrous metals. In this mode, the voice is dual tone, standard 0-15 low tone and 15-99 high tone.
The deep mode. Created for searching on small areas, requires slow wiring coil. The deepest mode of all presented in this series of metal detectors. In this mode, metal detector is noisier, but the noise is louder when the coil is in the air, not above the ground. Also, dual tone mode-0-15 low tone and 15-99 high tone.
