Product Overview
The Tesoro Silver uMax is one of the lightest and easiest to use metal detectors on the market today. This model is based on the best selling Tesoro detector of all time. The all metal mode can be used to pinpoint your target or to find everything and leave nothing behind. The discrimination mode allows you to selectively filter out trash items such as bottle caps and pull tabs from soda cans.

Based on a Classic Design

This is the next generation, cutting edge design of the best selling Tesoro Silver Sabre metal detector. What sets this model apart from the pack is the number of useful features that you are getting for your dollar. It is exciting to see that years later, Tesoro has kept true to the ingredients that made this the cornerstone of the line, a friendly metal detector at an honest price!

The Best Selling Tesoro Detector

The Tesoro Silver Sabre series has had a very long history with Tesoro Electronics. It was first introduced in 1983. In a time when "lunch box" detectors were the norm, the original Silver Sabre metal detector was perceived as a toy unit. There have been many men who bought one for the wife and wound up using it because it worked as well as any other detector on the market. Advertised as "strong, simple, silent", the Silver Sabre has gone through many changes over the years. The Silver Sabre Plus added a no motion all metal circuit. The Silver Sabre II added a new plastic housing and new Hybrid Circuit technology. Several years ago we introduced the Tesoro Silver Sabre Max with an incredibly small housing and Max Boost technology. A number of men bought one for their wife and wound up using it because it worked as well as any other detector on the market. (Sounds familiar doesn't it?)

Back To Their Roots

Tesoro decided to bring the Silver back full circle to where it started. The original Tesoro Silver Sabre was a turn on and go detector with Silent Search discrimination and all metal modes. The new Tesoro Silver Max returns to its roots and offers strong, silent and simple operation once again. The Tesoro Silver Max metal detector uses a microprocessor to control the audio tone and battery test. It comes with an 8" Concentric coil and the latest plastic faceplate design.

I've lost my guy over this metal detector! Review by Samantha
I purchased this metal detector as a gift for my guy and he ABSOLUTELY LOVES IT! A few highlights as relayed by him:

- It's lightweight and easy to carry around and operate with one arm.
- Long battery life! (It takes a standard 9 volt battery.)
- Highly portable and collapsible for easy transport.
- Does an excellent job of distinguishing between what is potentially under the surface.
- The audible alert is a major help in accurately guiding where you need to dig.
- The price is a steal!
- Easy to "learn the ropes" to get quickly started on your treasure hunting adventures!
- A freebie digital magazine subscription (from www.metaldetector.com)? Yes, please! SCORE!!

And now for the cons [There are not really any cons], as relayed by myself:
- Horridly fast, courteous customer service. These folks couldn't be mean or un-helpful if they tried!
- You may find yourself or the recipient of this metal detector losing track of time as this product will make your new hobby an addiction!
- You may find that you are either going to far flung detecting sites or being coerced into tagging along. Every treasure hunter needs a sidekick! (A.K.A. - someone to carry the camp shovel, flashlights and water.)
- Some new "treasures" may wind up on your glass kitchen table thereby scattering years old dirt and debris on said table but dang it if you didn't find an early 20th century penny!

As you can see, the cons aren't really cons. I'm just being facetious. If you're thinking about buying this metal detector, make sure you've done your research and when you find that other comparable models simply do not stack up, hit the add to cart button for this gem and don't look back. You won't regret it! (Posted on December 27, 2017)

Very light, great scouting tool. Review by Terry
Tesoro Silver uMax is a great scouting tool for new sites. It's very light and fast. I set the discrimination to before 5 cents and hunt in all metal. When I get a target hit I quickly hit the switch to Discriminate. That eliminates most of the trash. I can turn the Discrimination up to eliminate pull tabs, then decide to dig target. This way. I can go through a new site very fast. I have dug all US coins to 6". I also have dug dimes and quarters to 9". Very satisfied with this detector! (Posted on July 12, 2016)

An AWESOME metal detector! Review by Jack D
I want to thank Moe for his expertise and fantastic customer service as he assisted me in deciding on the purchase of a Tesoro Silver uMax recently. The first day out with my new Tesoro I found an 1857-O Seated Liberty Quarter Dollar, and this was on a site that I had previously detected with another good quality detector. What a tremendous find with my brand new detector! The Silver uMax was incredible, just as Moe had suggested. I am totally sold on Tesoro's quality, and the Silver uMax is perfect for my needs. Thanks again! (Posted on July 20, 2015)
