The 6000 does what the 5000 can do depth wise on larger gold even slightly better, but what’s the point of providing it that way to the market when there is already something much better out there for

Minelab is basically just trying to create their own social media. That's what "detexperts" are, and that's why they are choosing their own no-name relic hunting channels to give exclusive looks into

I think these pictures sum up the GPX 6000 very concisely and also how I feel about those people who continue to suggest my input is biased or just marketing hype!! Tiny piece at stupid depth for

I'm really interested to hear from the experienced folks on this forum on their field tests.  None of the minelab sales hype interests me and i am glad i found this site.  Well done all!

Just thinking out loud here but wondering if anyone that has access to the GPX6000 could check to see if the GPZ covers will fit it (short term solution until GPX6 covers available) in particular the screen cover?

I know 🙄

With the RV/Camping industry in OZ showing remarkable growth since Covid the 6000 may be an accessory in every ones RV, perhaps we are at the beginning of detecting for gold becoming mainstream. The EQ did this to a certain extent in OZ with coin hunting, the parks a few of us did consistent in are since the EQ hype being done by many. The 6000 with its ergonomics, light weight and easy use may just be the machine to start a new fad. It`ll be sexy and with it to detect gold, the GoG is going to have her work cut out if the hype is an indication.😉

I think Minelab would need to knock about 6k off the retail price of the 6000 for that to happen... 😉

I was thinking of the same thing. Will let you know as soon as I get my 6000. I sure hope that the screen is more scratch resistant than the one of the 7000. Also, I can just imagine what the speaker would look like after a day detecting in the dirt without cover.

Regarding GPX 6000 screen, body and arm cuff covers, over a month and a half ago, the ML rep told me that Doc was already working on them, so no worries.

Hmm, you could be right there, but as the great majority of detectors are purchased for recreation use now opposed to say 30 plus years back in OZ when fortunes were being made by some with them as in Africa now, I suspect MLs OZ and US hype is banking on this recreation trend growing. Time will tell, grab a few Codan Shares just in case.😉

      Just got an email from Serious Detecting saying they have GPX 6000, but follow link to website, sold out. No surprise. Scuttlebutt is nearly all dealers are getting single digit quantities on this first go, with more coming later. I won't pretend to know what that means, except that a few people will have these in hand by next week or sooner. A person might find a dealer with unspoken for units if they are very fast about it. Once this first batch is gone, it's the waiting game again.

      Dear brothers, I did not find any clear review comments regarding the Minelab GPX 6000 detector My question is, has anyone tried the GPX 6000 and it turns out that it is able to find more gold better than others?

      Hi all, just found on Gumtree Aust a Minelab GPX 6000 for sale. Only the box in the picture. Listed yesterday by Shawn Gib from Sydney. Asking $9000.
      Says your beating the que price is firm. Does anyone know who this is? I take it is a fake so be aware, or someone has one from a dealer? cheers sturt

      Firstly my thanks to the guys at Coiltek.
      After dreadful weather here in central Victoria, and recovering from surgery, this morning dawned clear and sunny. Nice hot coffee and before the dew was off the ground I had the 6000 cranked up. Rudimentary reading of the manual the previous day saw the new detector humming sweetly after a short warm up. JP had been most helpful with a few tips on the local Finders forum, so it was quite easy to feel a certain amount of confidence as I ground balanced and paired up the headphones, which are surprisingly good compared to some of Minelab's previous offerings.
      There is a shallow but substantial lead running west to east across my fifty acre property which yielded a small amount of gold to my GPZ a few years back. I had gridded out the most promising area at the time, so it seemed obvious that this would be a good place to test my new toy. Not bothering to take a pick I headed off towards the east end of the block.
      Where on earth did these signals come from? A number were I am sure just shotgun pellets, but a few were at a reasonable depth as I tilted the coil to get some idea of just how deep. The more interesting signals I marked with boot scuffs and will check out within the next few days. I did not get to go back for my pick as a visitor turned up to have me check his detector.
      Initial impressions; Pretty damned good.

      Six Thousand dollars to put out on anything is a large investment to make .
       I just wonder how many of you have committed yourself to buying the 6000 already?
       I’ve had a long talk with one Minelab dealer and he has been told that the 6000 may slow in coming to the US because of the high volume going to other countries. That’s due to the gold rush is there not here.
       For you that live in gold country it may be a easy discussion but for those of us  that don’t we may have to think about it a while.
       I myself don’t have a bass boat parked in my drive with a big motor and trailer so this year I’m going to be good to me .
       I will have a 6000 as soon as I can get  my hot little hands on one.
       How about you is Santa going to come early?
       The Best!

      8 grammer found at 11 inches.  Nothing special as most detectors PIs should see something that big at that depth, but at least we get to see a big one finally found on film.
