Second Pulse Induction Machine Review by The Shady Mechanic
This is the second PI I've owned. My first was a Garrett Infinium LS which did okay. I'm an avid Minelab user with my CTX 3030 but I needed a better PI than my old Infinium. I debated long and hard on a Minelab GPX but decided to go with the ATX and don't regret it. I live close to a lot of water and the ATX is better suited for that type of hunting.

The ATX is easy to setup and run. Pinpoint mode makes finding where to dig your plug under that giant coil easy to do. Iron check is handy and works if you know you're dealing with nails. Sensitivity to small targets is impressive. ATX hit on the clasp portion of a silver chain that my CTX struggled to get. The build quality of the ATX is robust. It's not a light machine but if you adjust the shaft length properly you can hang your arm straight down and swing comfortably. It also comes with a sling if you need it.

Customer service. Bart is a great man to deal with. I have made numerous purchases with him and he always gets me the best deal that includes the items I need and will use. Shipping is always fast and free. If you ever have questions you can call and you will get straight answers. (Posted on 8/23/2018)
Service by Big Boys Hobbies Review by Delaware Digger
I would like to say that I have bought two Metal Detectors from Bart @ Big Boys Hobbies. Each time I was met with an enthusiastic and very helpful voice on the other end of the line. Bart has even talked to me after business hours. I cannot say enough about the knowledge possessed by he and Evan Granger. Top notch service. I recently bought the ATX and look forward to getting it out more. I was able to find a Mercury Dime with it on it's maiden voyage. (Posted on 4/5/2015)
Deep Relic Hunting....Period! Review by Gonehunting for History
In my 30 years of detecting this Garrett ATX is my first pulse induction machine. I've several places that have been pounded over the years by all kinds and brands of vlf technology. Being in Oklahoma, there really isn't a lot of places that produce Civil War relics, the few that do have been pounded for 40 to 50 years. So having something like the Garrett ATX that will punch into the ground past what the vlf's can do is key to reopening these rare sites.. I have so far found several handfuls of the older sharps ringtails and more shotgun brass that I care to count. The depth on the bullets is pushing 18-20 inches. They sound strong and with the led indicators you can tell they are deep. I've only the stock double d and it is a dream at pinpointing. Nearly 90% of the targets I dug were in the smaller inner coil area when using the pinpoint feature. Deeper(past 12in) good signals won't respond using the iron check feature, but junk targets may not buzz but they will create a response.. That I like. Of course junk targets(depending on size) under 10inches will definitely cause the iron to buzz, sounding just like the iron audio feature on the All Terrain Series. Don't fool yourself and think this is a coin hunter or something that you can hunt in a lot of trash.. Yes you can but the trashier the area the more time you will need to spend checking each target. I have not used the discrim as I am looking for the best depth.. Looking forward to more hunts with The Garrett ATX metal detector!!! A++++ as an affordable alternative to the other pulse machines at half the price...
5 stars for quality.. this think is tough.. well constructed and not near as heavy as I expected a pulse machine to be.. Comparing to another brand.
5 stars for price.. MUCH Cheaper than the competition, and is super sensitive on even the tiniest targets I scanned.
5 stars for Value again for the price it is half of what the competition offers. rechargeable and alkaline options that's a plus.. No expensive proprietary batteries to replace. With 3 coil options well rounded. No other gold/relic pulse has an iron discrimination.. game winner there.. Value 5 stars for sure! (Posted on 1/4/2014)
Depth and sensitivity to small gold of this machine will be a game changer! Review by Gold seeker
This Garrett ATX Extreme will amaze you on how small it can hit the smallest of gold nuggets. Should be a great relic machine as well in highly mineralized ground. (Posted on 9/24/2013)
