Default Detector Purchase Advice - Locating Pipe etc

Hi Everyone:

I would like to tap into your collective wisdom. After looking around this forum, there is more than I can easily digest.

I am considering purchasing a metal detector. The primary reason is to find a buried cast iron pipe. It has multiple branches and multiple leaks.
Additionally, I periodically lose tractor parts in high grass in a pasture. It would be nice to recover some of them. Finally, I also have two children who may be interested in the hobby aspects of detecting.

Will a metal detector locate a pipe 24" down? How deep can they go?
Will they pick up buried copper wire?

Do you have any suggestions on what, if anything, that may be suitable?
