Saxon X-1 Ultra-deepseeking Analytical Metal Detector.
Until the advent of the Saxon X-1 ,
there had been no successful attempt to produce a generally useable deep-seeking detector
for many years. Regardless of claims made, all recent designs lacked adequate
discrimination at depth - if they could discriminate at all. They could not be used
efficiently on the vast majority of inland sites because such sites are contaminated with
iron fragments and other magnetic material. The operator of such equipment very soon
lost confidence to dig anything deep. Anyone who persisted soon had scrap iron by
the bucketful and virtually nothing else - apart from blistered hands and backache, that
A truly efficient deep-seeker remained just a dream!
The dream becomes a reality - with the Saxon X-1
The Saxon X-1 was designed from start to finish as a highly accurate discriminating and
ultra deep-seeking detector. In comparison to the old Arado 120b and 130 models of
the late 1970's and 1980's the X-1 has very much more depth - a staggering increase in the
order of 50% right across the board. Moreover, it is much more stable, easier to
use, has a more rugged construction with far better balance and suffers much less from
The X-1 does require a highly experienced operator with access to a considerable number
of reasonably good sites, so that its full capabilities can be both realised and
appreciated. Moreover, such operator needs to be experienced in the use of other
than Motion Detectors in order to have a realistic appreciation of what is in the ground
and of the various types of ground effect likely to be encountered.
Without any doubt whatever, it is much easier to find large quantities of small
non-ferrous metal items with the X-1 than with the Arado 120b and 130 detectors,
particularly on the less prolific or 'worked out' sites. The main problem likely to
be encountered is that of fatigue, due to the effort of digging so many relatively deep
holes. Such a sensitive machine must also be extremely stable and this requirement
means the X-1 is rather heavier than average.
Although appearing somewhat less-iron sensitive than the Arado 130 and massively less
than a typical Pulse Induction detector, the X-1 is easier to use in the more open and
uncontaminated places, particularly meadows and woodlands, like the model 130. To
begin searching in such places is strongly recommended. (As this is a detector for
inland use, salt-water beaches should be avoided).
The Saxon X-1 provides the first real performance improvement in deep-seeking detectors
for many years - and this improvement is truly massive!
