For Sale Selling My Teknetics 8500

Recommended Posts

 I'm the original owner, got it in December 2015.  Well taken care of.   Sent in for a checkup last August where they replaced the board and gave it a new serial number with a 0817 date code.  I left the plastic film on the display just to keep it nice.   

Its a way cool, feature rich metal detector that has some unique features.  I've included the specs below:

Comes with the stock coil (no coil cover) and original manual.   Sorry I don't have the original box.

$275  shipped via parcel post.   USPS Money Order or Paypal (add 3 percent or friends and family)

The Omega has a unique control interface that incorporates both analog and touch pad controls; adjustments are easy to make with one hand. The Omega has three graphics that display information about soil conditions: Fe3O4 bar graph, Ground Phase number and Ground Error indicator. These indicators keep you aware of the ever-changing soil conditions, allowing you to keep your detector perfectly balanced to achieve the greatest possible target depth. If you hunt in difficult soil conditions, the Omega is for you.

Will include a 4" Greek concentric I bought late last year but never used.   This is the 7.8 kHz coil made to work with the 7.6 and 7.8 kHz Greek/Fisher units.
