of Metal Detecting
our Pioneer 101 Metal Detector incorporates Motion Detection
Technology. Movement over an object is required in order for the
machine to detect the object and emit a tone.
While holding your Pioneer 101 Metal Detector as indicated in the
picture to the right, sweep the search coil slowly from side to side. While
sweeping, maintain the search coil level with the ground.
If the detector chatters, reduce the sensitivity by turning the left knob (Sensitivity)
When searching a possible target, move the search coil repeatedly over the target. Be certain that
the signal repeats during each pass over the target. If the tone does not repeat consistently, you
are probably detecting trash items or oxidation. Only dig up targets with repeatable tones.
• Do not test the detector on the floor of a home or building.
• Most floors contain metal which will interfere with the detector’s operation.
• Unless air testing or demonstrating, use outside only.
PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING YOUR METAL DETECTOR
