Discontinued Products

Discontinued Products

As new technology is developed and improves upon the performance of our current product range, Minelab discontinues our older product models. These products are listed on this page alphabetical order for your reference.

We aim to service and support all of our older products for as long as possible. All products are supported for a period of at least 7 years after they are discontinued.  Unfortunately with some of these older detectors it becomes impossible to source the parts required for service work and so the detectors eventually become uneconomical to repair.

If you require information about our older products, please Contact Us directly.

F1A4 UXO

F1A4 UXO

Minelab wishes to announce that after twelve years of successful operations, the F1A4 metal mine detector and its UXO variant are no longer in production. The decision to stop manufacture is based on the increasing obsolescence of various electronic components and the relatively low demand for the product following the 2003 introduction of the F3 and its subsequent configurations.

The F3 has been designed to ensure that transfers of training are kept to a minimum when converting from an F1A4 to an F3. Additionally, Minelab offers its assistance to those customers that wish to replace the F1A4 with the F3.

In the short term, Minelab will maintain a stock of F1A4 spare parts and will continue to provide a technical support service for those F1A4 components that are repairable.

Any questions relating to the availability of F1A4 spare parts can be directed to countermine@minelab.com.au.
