Just interested to see if anyone has or is using a 8' commander on a 3000 and how stable it runs on the machine, I have been using a 8 x 6 NF with great results on little nuggets but find it very sensitive to hotrocks and have to run the machine on tracking to keep it quite at times. Could someone let me know how a 8 would go with depth and if they run smooth -the machine I have runs well with mono coils..

Thanks..

G'day Auscritgold.

If your 3000 runs well with mono coils,it should also run well with the 8 inch Commander Mono.The 8 inch Commander will surpass the Sadie 8x6 in depth as nugget size starts exceeding the gram+ mark. Remember that the GP Series with the introduction of the dual voltage system,was a quieter machine to run with monos over low to medium mineralized ground than the SD Series,but not as quiet running as the GPX Series.The smaller the coil the more sensitive it will also be to ground noise and the higher the ground mineralization,the noisier your mono will get.
