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.)

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.
