Introduced about 1992

That was my first tector and I bought it new in '92.  Dug a lot of coins with that machine and used it exclusively for 22yrs. Sold it 2 yrs ago and it's still working fine.

I have a 6000 Di Pro that was working the last time I used it but I'd need to crank up a battery pack for it now.  I think I bought it in 85.  When was that first produced?

Are you sure you're not confusing an earlier incarnation of the 6000 Di pro ?  We're talking the black box with the 950 loop, right ?  If so, I thought that didn't come out till 1989-ish ?

I just checked Sven’s website and per the field tests he linked to, My factory Hip-Mount Teknetics Mark 1 was introduced in 1985, so I have a “qualified” machine.

Here’s a link to his site...lots of stuff on vintage detectors....https://www.treasurelinx.com/tk.html
