Found a unicorn

I am about ready to close a deal on an original Land Ranger.  There are not that many out in the wild.  It fell just below the top of the line back in the day, so not that many were sold.
Back I first got into detecting with my Tracker IV this ,along with the Time Ranger , were the units I always wanted to own.  While this was going on, the buzz about the T2 was just starting.  Guess what machine is next on my list? Lol
Btw, picking it up for 60 bucks. 
I think I have a machine hoarding problem lol.

I say go for it.  No such thing as hoarding detectors!  It's called "collecting" of course.  Very similar to the Time Ranger....a sleeper unit that can reach 7-8 inches if setup correctly (in decent soil).  For most units then...that was top end as you say.  

Also as you say...along came the T2/F75/F70 and everybody played catchup for a decade...some still are....

Received the unit.  It does turn on, but that is all it will do so far.  Kinda bummed, but I did buy it online from a second hand store.  I’m waiting to hear from FT about a possible repair.

Yeah, that kinda sucks.  Hopefully, they will be able to take a look.

They said they can repair it.  Which means they might still have some old parts.  I will be calling for the RA number, then sending it in to be evaluated.  Hopefully it doesn’t cost too much to fix.
