Turning the ORX on

Post by Chilgrove » Thu Nov 07, 2019 4:47 pm

A friend has an XP ORX but I think he is not finding much. He had an Etrac before. Yes we have to be over it to find it but I wonder if any experienced users have any tips I could pass on to him?

For example when I turn on my Deus I know it is important to hold it out horizontally until the flashing reverts to "normal" speed. Does this also apply to the ORX ?

It's safe to say YES, keep it away from metal/ground/pinpoint probes, and horizontal, like you would normally use it.

Why is it that on every forum I'm ever on all I see is innundo's that are begging for some type of commical response! lol!.

I'm not experienced with turning an 'ORX' on but I should imagine that holding it out 'horizontally' may do the trick! ha ha ha!.

I would say the length of the stem is the really important. The right length to encourage the user to keep the coil low to the ground, and to protect their back so they don’t stoop.

Plus the usual stuff about swinging slowly. There’s a great video by Gary that’s worth checking out

I use orx and is as good as most other machines. Like other machines it takes time to master and understand what it's telling
you.
