Only use a few minutes to assemble it. It's not difficult for a teenager to do it according to the manual or the assembly video. It's also very easy to use.
Yes, it can be used on the beach. But be careful of the control box, the box is not waterproof!
This metal detector is only 2.1lbs. it's lightweight for adults and teenagers. But we'd recommend the GC-1011 for a 5-year-old. GC-1011 is more light and easier for kids.
It would depend on many factors. First how big the buried object is. For example, a quarter may get 6" while a garbage can lid might come in at 18".The second is how much discrimination you use. On all metal, you will get more depth but pick up more trash items. Under ideal circumstances, you would never even pick up that trash can lid if you had iron nulled out.Other factors are too many to name but soil condition, moisture of grass, and sensitivity settings are all going to count towards depth.
This metal detector is super lightweight and that has allowed my son to search for hours without his arms getting tired, but so far he Has only done searching in some nearby fields and a couple people’s backyards. He is excited to be able to search more areas including the beach when we go to California! We tested the metal detector on some Gold and silver coins. As well as seeing how it reacts to steel and iron. The detector is awesome & working great!! It’s seriously only takes a few minutes to figure out how to use it properly. If you have any problems figuring it out, If you have any problems figuring it out, I suggest reading the instructions if you need help in understanding if this metal detector is detecting the metal you want. All the tests we have done with this metal detector worked great and It was a lot of fun searching our back yard and around the house for gold. In the near future, I will take my metal detector out into the real world (a park or something & hopefully the beach) and hopefully/eventually find something valuable in the grass, dirt or sand! Searching for valuables is a fun hobby and this is a great metal detector for anyone who is new to treasure hunting. Overall it has worked great and been super fun for my son! Definitely recommended!
