Minelab X-TERRA 505 (with 9" 7.5kHz Coil)

The X-TERRA 505 is the starting point in the X-TERRA series of metal detectors design for treasure, coin and relic detecting. An affordably priced entry-level detector for the whole family.


Minelab’s proprietary “True Digital” VFLEX technology, the new class of single frequency detectors – you can change the operating frequency simply by changing coils. Features three preset detecting patterns that can be customised.

Compatible with low frequency (LF) 3kHz coils as well as medium 7kHz and high frequencies 18.75kHz. The LF coil option is ideal for hunting large, deep targets. All seven X-TERRA Coils can be used on the X-TERRA 505.

Increased Ground Balance capability, range now (0-50), allowing the user to adjust to ground mineralization.

Choice of 1,2,3 or 4 Tone ID’s plus Multi-tone Target ID (19) response options increasing your flexibility in deciding how target signals are represented.

Threshold adjustment, with a range of -5 to 25, allowing the user to set threshold to level where slight variations from either very small shallow, or very large deep, targets can be noticed.
