Walco Detecting Harness - Distributer

Post  GemQ on Mon Jan 16, 2017 4:09 pm

All,

Another member asked me about the harness I use to alay pressure on their back. The harness was given to me by a friend and I just wanted to confirm if anybody new where these could be bought for the other forum member. There is a sticker saying Walco Prospecting Supplies but I've been unable to find them on the internet (I thought Walco only made picks).

If you have a similar design those details would also assist  a fellow forum member get back out into the yellow stuff.

Any assistance much appreciated.

I don't know about the pictured harness but the early model with a single sash strap over your shoulder was the best detecting harness ever made. Walco make very good stuff.

Cheers, Jim

Hi Redfin, I reckon getting the right harness is one of the most important parts of detecting. Have a look at these: https://www.facebook.com/The-Prospectors-Pick-116698508457529/?fref=ts I don't sell 'em but I do use them and they are real good. Alway's best to try before you buy though...maybe a dealer near you could get one in??? They go for around 370 bucks and so are not cheap...hope it may help.

Thanks Tony, I'll have a chat to them. There may be distributers in the east.
Definitely a try before you buy.

Hi I have the earlier single crossover type, great harness had it for years. Last year tried to order one for the wife.I was told they are not making them any more due to manufacturing costs. That's a pity because they are ultra comfortable cheers joe Very Happy Very Happy
