Golden Umax and Ground Balance (- General)

I have one of the older Tesoro Golden Umax's. I am not getting the depth that I should be getting. I have heard that you can change a POT inside? I am in Iowa and have very mild ground. Would like to know where it is and (which way to adjust) for my mild ground. Thanks

There's nothing inside the average person can adjust properly that will increase depth.
Tesoros come in three varieties, because they fall into a tolerance level that is acceptable
to ship out the door. Below average, average and above average. It's the luck of the draw what you will get unless you know the detector well enough to cherry pick a dealers stock.
For $50 Tesoro will gladly undo mistakes made.....

air, sand, mud, rock are totally different media
and pinpointer need direct contact with these media to locating the targets

Stepless sensitivity adjustment is the best solution but this will raise cost of production

normally pinpointer factory offer auto adjustment for 3 or 4 level to solve the faulty alarm
when the probe hunting in different media or move place to place

So I suggest you can put pinpointer into the media 1 inch than adjust sensitivity and this will
give you best detecting experience :-)
