Makro Kruzer or Racer 2 as a dual purpose machine

Post by Buster » Fri Apr 26, 2019 2:17 pm

I am looking into doing a wee spot of detecting on the coastline, however, being in a rural setting, I will be land scanning too.

Does anyone know which of these two is the better dual purpose machine?


Cheers ::g

I don't know anything about the Kruzer, but I have a Racer 2 and can vouch for it being a good duel use machine..

I have owned and used both inland and at the beach, the Racer 2 is very good for the budget price, if you require the machine to be waterproof then obviously the Kruzer is the way to go ::g



We have a great deal here at the MDFShop for the Racer 2 https://www.metaldetectingauction.com/l ... tor/104598

and the Kruzer https://www.metaldetectingauction.com/l ... khz/104596

You even have the opportunity to make an offer ::g B-)

Best of luck in whatever you decide on

I had the Makro Racer 2, and liked it for land detecting. However, I am afraid that I didn't like it so much on the beach, particularly on wet sand/shingle areas.

Good point! The coil on the Racer2 is waterproof, but not the control box...You can get a factory cover, but even that is only splashproof at best..

As Mrix say, If true waterproofness is needed, the Kruzer is the way to go unless you can spring for an Anfibio...
