Metal detecting on the beach can be a fun and exciting hobby, and with the Minelab Equinox 900, it can be even more rewarding. In this blog, we'll discuss the benefits, tips, and techniques for metal detecting on the beach with the Minelab Equinox 900.
Benefits of Metal Detecting on the Beach with the Minelab Equinox 900
The Minelab Equinox 900 is a top-of-the-line metal detector designed for all terrain metal detecting. The metal detector has two specific modes that make it ideal for beach hunting. Its advanced features and technology make it ideal for finding even the smallest of targets buried in the sand. With its waterproof design (up to 16ft.), you can even take it into the water to search for treasures.
One of the benefits of using the Minelab Equinox 900 is its multi-frequency technology. This means that the detector can operate on multiple frequencies simultaneously, allowing you to detect a wider range of targets. The Equinox 900 also has a feature called "simultaneous multi-frequency," which allows it to use multiple frequencies to detect targets at different depths, at the same time. This makes it a superior detector for finding both larger deep targets (think treasure) and smaller valuable items at shallower depths (think earrings).
The Equinox 900 Collapses down to 24" for easy packing.
If you're new to metal detecting on the beach with the Minelab Equinox 900, there are a few tips you should keep in mind to get the most out of your detector.
First, it's important to understand the settings on your detector and how to adjust them for optimal performance.
The Equinox 900 has several preset search modes, including "Beach 1" and "Beach 2," which are specifically designed for beach hunting. Experiment with different settings and modes to find the one that works best for you.
When you're using the Equinox 900 on the beach, it's important to pay attention to the tide. Low tide is the best time to search for targets, as more of the beach will be exposed. However, it's important to be aware of the tide schedule and to never venture too far out into the water.
Another tip for metal detecting on the beach with the Equinox 900 is to use headphones. The Equinox 900 has a built-in speaker, but using headphones will help you hear faint signals and distinguish between different types of targets.

There are several techniques you can use when metal detecting on the beach with the Minelab Equinox 900. One technique is to use a grid pattern to search an area. Start at one end of the beach and work your way across, making sure to overlap each pass. This will ensure that you don't miss any targets. Or, like me, you could just aimlessly wander wherever the wind takes you.
Another technique is to use the Equinox 900's pinpoint mode. Once you've located a target, use the pinpoint mode to determine its exact location. This will make it easier to dig up the target without damaging it.
Metal detecting on the beach with the Minelab Equinox 900 can be a rewarding and exciting hobby. With its advanced features and technology, the Equinox 900 makes it easier to find even the smallest targets buried in the sand. By understanding the settings and features of the detector, paying attention to the tide, using headphones, and using effective search techniques, you can increase your chances of finding valuable treasures on the beach. So grab your Equinox 900 and head to the beach for a fun and rewarding adventure!
