With 1 hook-up point I could locate all 10 mains in the 3 block radius that originally I used 6 dfferent hook-up points. The RD8000 is a locating king. I haven't seen anything with so many different frequencies for troubleshooting, but it was great and it found that main.
    you will damage out locating like that

    The idea to that was not that I locate like that, it was all to say that through troubleshooting like that I found out that I was off on my original locate. Most definitely have to hook up at those different locations especially for the services. The point of it was that the RD8000 found what other pieces of equipment couldn't find, and here that happens a great deal of time with gas.

    The rd 7000 and 8000 reciever are super light compared to the rd 4000. the 8000 weifghs about as much as a paint stick.

    I have been checking for the same kind of equipment so here is what I can share to extend the discussion. Try this list of receivers and see which will be fit for your use from the list.
