What can you find?
Locate your property pins before putting up a fence or to settle a dispute with a neighbor.
Need to find a manhole cover buried under pavement or grass and dirt? You can locate it up to 9' (2.74 m) deep.
Water Valve Covers
Find the water service shutoff valve between your house and the street.
Locate buried steel water well casings up to 9' (2.74 m) deep, or steel well-pit covers up to 6' (1.8 m) deep.
Unsure where your septic tank is? Locate the steel handles on the lids of concrete tanks.
Detect an abandoned fuel tank or steel drum buried beneath your property, up to 9' (2.74 m) deep.
Locate abandoned or buried steel oil well casings up to 9' (2.74 m) deep.
Looking for treasure buried in a steel ammunition box? Find them up to 12' (3.6 m) deep.
Since a magnetic locator only detects iron, it can help you hunt for these valuable chunks of iron meteors.
Whether you lost your gun while hunting, or are trying to find one to solve a crime, you can locate it up to 10" (25 cm) deep.
Abandoned barbed wire fencing can be a danger to livestock and people. Trace the buried wire with a magnetic locator.
What's a Magnetic Locator?
A magnetic locator is a specialized type of metal detector. They are designed to find property pins, cast iron pipes, septic tank lids, and more.
It only detects magnetic (ferrous) metals like iron and steel.
Standard metal detectors can reach a depth of around 6 to 8" (20 cm). A magnetic locator, however, can detect objects buried up to 16′ (4.8 m) deep.
Property pins are between 4" to 12" (10 to 30 cm) deep. A septic tank lid can be up to 4′ (1.2 m) underground. Cast iron pipes can be a few inches to a few feet deep.
What kind of metal does it detect?
Magnetic locators will only detect magnetic metals like iron and steel.
It won't detect non-magnetic metals like brass, copper, gold, silver, or aluminum. You can locate objects as small and thin as nails, or as large as steel drums.
How does a magnetic locator work?
Buried iron and steel objects generate their own magnetic fields. These objects create distortion in the earth's natural magnetic field. A magnetic locator measures this distortion and represents it as a strong or weak signal.
When you're near an iron or steel object, the locator indicates the strength of the signal in three ways:
1. Number on the Screen A number is shown at the center of the screen. This number is a measurement of the magnetic field detected.
2. Bar Graph A bar graph extends either to the left or right. The graph is a visual indication of the magnetic field.
3. Changes in Sound
The locator emits a "scratchy" sound while it's turned on. As you near a magnetic field, this sound gets louder and higher-pitched.
Together, these indicators tell you how near to a iron or steel object the locator may be.
The stronger the signal, the higher the number on the screen. As the signal increases, the graph extends further to the left or right. And, the sound increases in volume and pitch.
