Test: Minelab Equinox 800 vs Makro Multi Kruzer 2018

New Minelab’s metal detector Equinox 800 can become one of the best metal detectors for the next 10 years (special greetings to the Garrett AT Max) but the Turkish manufacturer Makro metal detectors do not rush to give all the glory to the Australians.

These are two very steep multi-frequency metal detectors who excellently show themselves in the fields, forests and beaches (in the last Makro Multi Kruzer is more preferably). At once attracts attention that the Makro Multi Kruzer metal detector has IP 68 Rating which means that it can dive under water up to 5 Meters (16.4ft).

    The reason the detectors don’t get the Charles hammered is because there is probably a bit of iron in the clod
    All detectors fail to find a target that is several inches deep when there is a nail or whatever near the surface above or anywhere near it.
    They will find it if they are on a similar level
    No iron involved and the Equinox should get the Charles at about 13” the Makro will not get anywhere near it

    Actually the Minelab Equinox is a Multi frequency detector. You have it listed as a VLF single frequency.

    1. Hi, Choppadude

      Yes, this is a mistake. We change it. Thank you!
