Magnetic Locator Rental
Looking for property markers / survey pins, propane lines, or other buried utilities? A magnetic locator is the tool you need.
Starting at $85 per day.
What's a magnetic locator?
When the thing you need to find is deeper than 6-8 inches and it's made of iron or steel (think property markers / survey pins, well casings, gas and propane lines, septic tanks, etc.), a metal detector isn't the ideal tool for the task. It may get the job done, but the experience will be long and frustrating. The difficulty in using a metal detector for these cases is that they detect all kinds of metal—the kind you want—and the kind you don't.
Our magnetic locator rentals, on the other hand, only detect ferrous metals like iron and steel. You won't waste time digging holes at every signal, just to find nickels and dimes. It won’t detect copper, aluminum foil or any other kinds of metallic debris in the way of what you seek.
They're not affected by wood, mulch, concrete, or rocks (unless those rocks contain iron). And, they can be used in rain or snow because they're water-resistant.
When it finds an object, the locator shows a number, as well as a bar graph on its display. Both of these tell you 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 a continuous sound that gets louder and higher-pitched as it nears a magnetic signal.
How deep can a magnetic locator go?
A magnetic locator can locate an object from 4″ (10cm) to 15′ (4.5m) below the ground, depending on the size and depth of the object. The larger it is, the deeper it can be located.
