Meet Windy City (A Little About Us)


Welcome to

Windy City

Metal Detectors 

Since 1985

A little about us.

We sell and rent metal detectors and also offer a lost item recovery service.

We are a family-owned and operated business. We have been serving Chicago and surrounding areas since 1985 with quality metal detectors and accessories. Our talented team is passionate about this industry and dedicated to keeping you on the cutting edge of technology. Windy City not only sells and rents metal detectors, but we have also been using them for over 40 years. Therefore, in addition to providing top-quality equipment, we can provide you with tips and hands-on instructions to make your metal detecting experience more successful. In 1985 due to a lack of local dealers and lack of information on the hobby Windy City detectors was formed and has developed into a multi-line metal detecting dealership that has been servicing customers in the Chicago area and elsewhere with metal detectors for security, industry, and hobby as well as specialty equipment for serious treasure hunters.


We carry the following brands, many of which are also available for local rentals.

Garrett, Fisher,Minelab, Notka, Detech, Teknetics, XP

We pride ourselves on being able to provide you with the metal detector that fits your needs and is within your budget, you can count on never being oversold. We are with you not only before the sale but also long after - if you ever need additional help, we are there to lend a hand.

You are important to us and we will do our best to make you feel like part of our family!
