Locate with one hand tied behind your back. Not that you'd want to, but the point is you can with a Magna-Trak 200 Series locator. The Magna-Trak 200 is ergonomically designed for complete one-handed operation. You can adjust volume and sensitivity with the same hand that holds the locator. So your other hand is free-or untied-to use other equipment. A large LCD display illuminates a digital readout and bar graph so you can locate visually. Used with audio tone, the Magna-Trak 200 allows for pinpoint accuracy, even in congested search areas. No mechanical controls-the membrane is sealed from dust and moisture-and the water-resistant housing permits use in the rain. Engineered body with ergonomic handle with textured grip, lightweight-only 3 lbs! (Seven-year warranty.)

Magnawand

The Magnawand Model ID2100 magnetic locator was designed to help the professional land surveyor. Using the patented Target Identification (TID) feature, the surveyor is able to identify between a vertical survey marker and unwanted objects. The amazing TID feature will save you money and time digging unnecessary holes, especially when the ground is hard or frozen; TID also makes the ID2100 great for locating survey pins along fence lines. The detector is not too small or large-just compact size, length 34". The tube is made of strong ABS, not plastic, and the unique end design also protects the switches. Carrying case included.
