Blogging again!

Monday, October 27, 2014 at 4:39 pm

Well, it has been a long time since we blogged on here! Face book and other forms of media seem to get preference these days. So what has happened to Crawford metal detectors in the year that has flown by since my last blog? A lot is the short answer! Perhaps the  most important is us being appointed a Minelab main dealer enabling to buy directly from Minelab and also allowing to retrade to other dealers. Earlier in the year another brand of undoubted future importance, Nokta came our way as we became UK distributor for the brand. Nokta are relatively new to the UK but with ground breaking and innovative metal detectors such as their FORS CoRe, the Nokta brand will only grow and grow. Detech Coil sales remain strong and the 13″ Ultimate coil has proved to be very successful. We are now stocking up and getting ready for what we hope to be our best ever Christmas!
Bye for  now

New Signage at CMD towers!

Friday, October 4, 2013 at 10:57 am

About time too! Our old sign was starting to look a bit tired and disheveled so we bit the bullet and ordered a new one along with a smaller sign that is more easily spotted from the road. I’m sure you would agree it has smartened us up a bit.  This is part of our plan to bring our metal detector shop up to date. Next is a shop refit which all being well will take place over the winter months. This will better enable us to display metal detectors and and in particular, accessories such as the new Detech & Coiltek range of Search heads.

New Coil from Detech

Thursday, June 20, 2013 at 9:05 am

Detech 15x8wss

New Detech 15”x8” WSS search head now available
In response to demand for a larger metal detector search head that will provide good ground cover and maintain depth and sensitivity to very small objects in trashy ground, Detech have introduced an all new 15″x8″ Ellipical Coil. The 15″x8″WSS (WideScanSearch) has a narrow ‘knife-edge’ search pattern that is designed to see between junk and iron targets enabling small coins etc to be found deeper and closer to iron than with other 15″ search heads making it an ideal option for our typically trashy UK metal detecting sites. Though not quite as deep on larger objects as the more general purpose SEF 15″x12″, the 15″x8″WSS showed a significantly improved finds rate of small non-ferrous targets on trashy sites. Pinpointing is also more accurate.
The Detech 15″x8″WSS is currently available for the following metal detectors:
Minelab E-Trac, Explorer & Safari and
Minelab Sovereign, Teknetics T2, Fisher
F70 & F75, Whites DFX & MXT and
Garrett Ace models. Priced at

Great Start for us and Detech

Friday, April 19, 2013 at 7:50 am

Our new relationship with Detech has got off to a great start with the 13″ Ultimate coils in particular selling very well. So well in fact we  have had to place a top up order of 13″ Ultimate’s for Minelab E-Trac and for Teknetics T2. These new coils seem to be really doing the business for these detectors.

Detech metal detectors are something very new to us but we can confirm that we are very impressed by what we see and will have models on test very soon. Watch this space.

This however will not affect telephone orders and you are more than welcome to place an order by telephone on our usual number – 01724 845608.

CTX3030 control box cover sets

Monday, March 11, 2013 at 4:09 pm

On the release of our Minelab CTX3030 control box cover set last year, we found you loved the design but not the colour! So we asked around and was told it should either be a black set or Camouflage. We opted to do both. The camouflage set has been available now for a couple of months and has proved very popular. Particularly on our ebay shop. The Black set should be with us this week and will be on the website shortly.minelab-CTX3030-control-box-cover-set
