Detector

Having it All

When it comes to the perfect detector, everyone has his or her own personal ideas of what is needed. Coin hunters want adjustable sensitivity and discrimination controls. Relic hunters and prospectors want an adjustable ground balance. Competition hunters want a frequency shifter. Everyone wants a VCO pinpoint to make targets easier to dig. The Tesoro engineers have combined all of these features into one machine that will handle just about any type of terrain that you may encounter. No other detector can match the Eldorado for adaptability, sensitivity and survivability. With all of these features and Tesoro's Lifetime Warranty, if you are only going to buy one detector, make sure it is an Eldorado.

El Dorado, fabled city of gold. Adventurers journeyed far and wide seeking the riches that it held. They traveled over some of the most difficult territory imaginable. The new Tesoro Eldorado metal detector captures some of those early adventurers' spirit and dedication.

One of the most difficult things that our engineers face when designing a detector is which features to include. One combination may be OK for coin hunters but may not fit the needs of relic hunters. What will satisfy the competition hunter does nothing for the prospector. The form, function and features determine the detector's place in the market. That is why most detectorists wind up with a couple of different detectors. The Eldorado is designed to be a full function, all-purpose detector by stressing three design parameters: Adaptability, Sensitivity and Survivability.

Adaptability

Ground conditions have the biggest overall effect on the operation of a detector. Air tests are nice for showing what a detector might do, but working in the dirt is the true test of what a detector will do. Turn-on-and-go style detectors have their ground balance preset at the factory to work as best as they can in many different conditions. However, there will be some conditions that the machine may lose depth and sensitivity due to mineralization. The Eldorado has a 3 3/4 - turn ground balance that is user-adjustable to match almost any surroundings that you may encounter.

In our rapidly changing world, the chances for Radio Frequency (RF) interference increase almost daily. Power and data lines, mobile radios and cell phones are just a few of the real world problems that you might encounter. Also, working in close proximity with other detectorists may cause the machines to broadcast to each other. This is called crosstalk. The Eldorado has a built-in user-controlled Frequency Shift that tells the microprocessor to change the detector's operation from 10.6 kHz to either 10.4 kHz or 10.2 kHz. These shifts are enough to let the Eldorado work in and around a number of RF interference problem areas.

Sensitivity

The Eldorado has several features that help the detectorist locate and pinpoint targets in the field. The Eldorado's MAX Boost sensitivity control pushes the signal deeper ino the ground giving better depth and sensitivity to small targets. Tesoro's world renowned ED180 discrimination system creates a discrimination range from silent search all metal to the ability to tune out unwanted pull tabs and screw caps and everywhere in-between. The Eldorado also combines the 9x8 spoked coil with microprocessor controlled VCO pinpointing to make pinpointing the target fast and easy.

Survivability

In the field, simplicity and ease of use determine how much a detector gets used. The Eldorado has no unnecessary features. There are no extra meters, tones, or lights that take away from the detector's function. Everything has been carefully picked and balanced for optimum operation. The Eldorado incorporates a digital battery test that can be activated at any time while the detector is in use. Its distinctive beeping tones let you know the exact strength of your batteries. The Eldorado comes on our three piece knock down pole, allowing the detectorist to pack into areas that may prove cumbersome for other detectors. Like every other Tesoro Metal Detector, the Eldorado is covered by our Lifetime Warranty giving you peace of mind no matter where you go. With the Eldorado you can seek your riches wherever the journey takes you.
