    Ahhh.... The dust pan that can locate everything.


    I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to agree with your initial feelings.

    If that thing works like it says... I'll take a one right now. I do nothing but trouble tickets and most are broken/non existent tracer wire on PVC. This thing would make half my jobs a breeze from the sound of it.

    The questions are:

    How much did you pay?

    Have you tried to use it independently of the sales demo?

    Does it really work, and can you actually confirm it works, and is it accurate to within a few inches?

    What checks have you done to confirm it works?

    I'll reserve any opinions and further comment until you've posted your responses.

    They 1/2 work, meaning it picks up everything roots, rocks, lines. The process for depth measurement on a item is terrible and not accurate. Really if using it to verify something you already know is there you go "whoa this does work" If digging to find something you don't know is there because it told you something was There will probably be nothing there and you get pissed. Not a professional tool.

    thats what is done on the trade shows.

    You are spot on Cuda we've used it at our construction site where we are installing 8'' SDR storm drain and it can't locate it?!? the backfill material is clean DG, we buried it in steps and tried locating it in steps, then compacted and tested in steps……..nothing, but I could locate the pipe only by manipulating the unit with a wrist motion because we knew exactly where the pipe was, (I believe thats what they do at the trade shows)
    we excavated and installed 4'' sch 40 PVC, 2' PE pipe and nothing, for 7k it shouldn't be this difficult and inconsistent !!!! I have found that other locating companies shelved there units. Im curious why there is no reviews anywhere are they being deleted ? the unit has been out for 4 Years ? I just started to call locate companies and asked if they have the unit, I only found two out of 17, and both where very nice and descriptive…….end result was sorry
