I have owned my quattro since 2008, bought for just £300 used only 10 times. I used it with the standard dd slimline coil once and have never used it since. It was very unstable the earlier dd coils seem more favourable (slightly different design). I bought a 12x10 sef and have never looked back, i also have an 8x6 sef and love that too. It eats cut quarters, the 8x6 gives a crisper signal on them though.I use ferrous tones and cancel out -10 to -8. I have found that with a sensitivity of 13... (read more)

Minelab Quattro MP is easy to use, eliminates iron and coke, has visual and aural identification, but like so many things in life - getting to know the machine is the very best advice.
And that takes time. Practice, Practice, Practice.
The Quattro is powerful, but underestimated against it's bigger brother the Explorer.
I have found 15thC silver hammered, old & modern jewellery and much more !
A good machine, with a small following, secondhand prices allow one to experiment without too much... (read more)

This Minelab Quattro MP machine is more than what you will ever need. It is so easy to just turn on and go. However should you require that extra muscle then this machine can cope. Maybe not the machine for uninitiated but for those willing to train themselves and the machine, I see nothing else on the market at this price that comes any where near to what can be achieved with a little patience and perseverance. You get what you pay for and this is worth every penny and has some great new... (read more)

The Minelab Quattro MP is well built. Does not live up to the hype. Can be outperformed by cheaper detectors. Heavy, poor pinpointing, average performance. (read more)

I have owned my Minelab Quattro MP metal detector since October 2005. Since that time, I have been to the beach twice with it, and I have searched old home sites dating back to the 1920's, a vacant lot where an old church once stood, and I have searched several parks. The detector will definitely sing to you. Unfortunately, the two beach trips (full days each) resulted in approx $2 in coins and a bunch of trash. Searching the old home sites produced one modern quarter. The old church... (read more)

The Quattro MP is a great new Metal Detector from Minelab. Just switch on and go. Suits those new to the hobby. On my first trip out with it, I found a handful of coins and a Silver ring. Only thing letting it down is the weight. You won't need gym membership if you own one of these. Well worth the £575 I spent. (read more)
