Looking for survey pins or property markers, a buried well housing, pipes, or other iron objects? A magnetic locator is the ideal tool for the task.
Our daily magnetic locator rentals are $55 (plus a combined delivery and pickup surcharge). Rent for 2+ days and save $5 per day.
We’ll deliver your magnetic locator rental right to your door (and pick it up when you’re done). There’s no need to sit in traffic or deal with parking just to rent a thing to find your survey pins or property markers.
Unlike metal detectors, a magnetic locator only detects magnetic fields from ferrous objects (those containing iron) and ferro-magnetic objects (those containing iron, cobalt, or nickel).
A magnetic locator won’t detect copper, aluminum foil or any other kinds of metallic debris. It can be used in rain or snow because it’s water-resistant. This magnetic locator can locate an object from 6″ to 16′ below the ground, depending on the size and depth of the object. The larger the object, the deeper it can be located. Magnetic locators aren’t affected by wood, mulch, concrete, or rocks (unless those rocks contain iron).
When it finds an object, the locator shows a number, as well as a bar graph on its display. Both of these indicate how near to a ferrous object the locator may be. The stronger the magnetic signal, the higher the number, and further the graph extends across the screen. The locator also emits an continuous sound that gets louder as it nears a magnetic signal.
This rental kit includes the following accessories: A printout of the survey plat for your property (if available), a 300′ tape measure, and a shovel for digging.
