Can I use the Tesoro Lobo SuperTRAQ on the beach? Is it waterproof?
Question by: juan on Nov 21, 2015, 8:22 AM Link
The Tesoro Lobo SuperTRAQ is a model that has been specifically designed for hunting gold. It is not necessarily a "beach unit," however it does offer ground tracking that would make it more effective than others with a preset ground balance. The unit is waterproof up to the control box.

What is the maximum depth on one meter by one meter metal object
Question by: Tambi on Jan 28, 2019, 11:37 AM Link
This detector was designed to find very small gold nuggets, not large items buried very deep. I would say the maximum depth would be about 12-inches or so.

I would like a Supertraq along with a cloth bag and a decent headset
Question by: Kenneth E. Duffey Jr. on Feb 15, 2019, 2:54 PM Link
Order while we still have them in-stock! As far as a bag, and headphones, you can check under "carry cases" and "headphones" under the "accessories" tab. They will also be listed under "compatible accessories" on the Lobo product page.

I have a tesoro lobo that i have owned for years. Im guessing 12 to 13 years.
What do I need to do to get it working again. Im thinking i paid around nine
hundred for mine. Might not have been. Anyway, I see it has a lifetime warranty.
What do I need to do?
Regards, jim
Question by: James parker on Jan 3, 2020, 6:59 PM Link
Unfortunately, the lifetime referred to in the "lifetime warranty" is the lifetime of the business that produces that device- Tesoro has sadly gone out of business, so the warranty is no longer effective.

I was left a Lobo super track by to sorrow but the battery compartments aren't there can I just hook up 9 V battery
Question by: Stacy on Feb 12, 2020, 5:20 PM Link
This device ran off of AA batteries, not 9-volts. Unfortunately, Tesoro has been out of business for a few years now, so the part you need will be difficult to find. We are sold out of them, so I think my best advice might be to check on eBay or Craig's list for parts.
