I bought one from Jim chick years ago and as he said it’ll cut out ( bleeping) when you get nearer the collar, it did at 10” and was a right feckin pain… if these pick up inches away from the collar then I’ll buy one.

Not a bad price that if come with warranty and can be fixed , I hate the mk3 box but love collar I’ll stick with. MK3 for now until it packs 8n then will try new one if they not gone tits up by then

Probably just copied it exactly so to save on trying to invent something new. It doesn’t look great but if it works better then the carrot then I’ll change over

Once you get your head round the mk3 boxes they were better than mk1. 

agreed ....

my first mk3 the depth was always short....or long depending on your view....if it said 3 foot....the depth was 2 foot....but it was deadly acurate as to the exact spot above the collar/ferret...

the new mk3 i have is deadly acurate both with depth and being right above....

as much as i like the old grey knocker box....the new m3 is better
