Default R 2 in heavy trash/ 2 videos

An old house lot that was just torn down last week and planted and hay thrown getting ready to build new homes. My 3rd hunt on this very small lot and had gotten 65 coins so far and 3 were silver. If you listen closely you can hear the amount of iron or just simply turn up the volume a little more. I hunt these kind of places just about exclusively. 100 plus yr old mill house that has been torn down and whatever was under it at the time of being built is still there just now mixed up highly by the doziers and track hoe. They literally just crush them to the ground and put them in dig dumpsters leaving all the nails and who knows what in the ground. First video is almost 30 minutes just detecting, no smoke and mirrors here, just listen and see what the machine sounds like with the blending and the sound of falsing nails and such. A lot for the ears but the iron volume makes it nice to detect. Full HD, just digging the good conductive sounding targets and the way the machine is set up they will almost always be a coin where I have the break points at and just listening for GOOD sounding metal.

You learn more from videos like this than the "only show target recovery" ones!

Thanks for taking the time to make videos that one can actually learn from, Jack Flynn.
