Hi Matt,
If you can grab one for $800 then go for it, that is a good price.
I have seen earlier models go for more than that.
Cheers,

The SD2000 is an old model now although if a couple of mods are performed on its electronics some say it's better than the latest GP4500 and I would not be surprised if they are correct.

It is a PI detector and is perfectly capable of finding gold despite being 10 years old. $800 is a very fair price. I suggest you don't wait too long, especially since you've posted it here!

G'day Mike
Just curious to know what mods your talking about and cost.
I know very little about detectors but I think the 4500 are around $6000.
Cheers

Hi Gary

The mods to the SD2000 are quite technical in nature but, essentially, are concerned with achieving rapid damping of ringing in the coil in order to allow the receive circuits to be turned on sooner. I didn't do the designs for them so don't know the details. To my knowledge there are two people in Oz (the world?) who will do them and I _think_ the cost is around A$700.

To all :
That price of $800 is really good .... I have an SD2000, paid $1300 for it a little while ago, subsequently had the two mods. done by a bloke in Vic .... cost was only $200 though.

Possibly only got a good price 'cause the Bro arranged it, after getting his 2000 done. So now us three bro's all have SD2000's, modified ..... the other two bro's are doing EXTREMELY well with theirs .... I can now manage to find my Troopy with mine !!

But, just to whet yer appetites, this is what one bro found, in one week !!Image Could Not Be Found

For the record, my sole contribution is trhe little piece above the coin !!! He found all that in the first week, on his first trip, using a 10 year old, old technology SD2000 !!!

For me, that's the stuff of dreams .........
