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 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 5 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.
For more information about discontinued detectors, please refer to the product manuals in the discontinued section of the Downloads page.
If you require information about our older products, please Contact Us directly.
