    I demo'd one when they first came out on the market, I hated it, and it was WAAAAY overpriced for the capabilities. I do hear some good things now and again posted here though. For me and my company, no way.....but others, they may have had good luck with them. I say go get yourself a good Metrotech 810 Jim. Cheap, reliable, user friendly and effective, what more do you need?

    i have the dynatel 573 dl with the Aframe, a metrotech would be my next choice. i need the fault finder.

    friend of mine has a sr-20 and likes it, of course the ridgid guys think it's a top notch machine but i never have seen one on a jobsite.

    thanks a bunch

    I use to use the SR - 60, I was working private locates at the time and ABSOLUTELY loved it. It does cost alot up-front but the first time you find something that no other machine says is there, it pays for itself. They chew up batteries though, seriously the biggest draw back over all for me anyway.

    The guys at the University of Illinois purchased some and there damage rate went from one a day to zero. I tried the sr-20 and liked it much lighter than the rd,I also like the continuous depth, mil. readings and the fact you don't have to swing the thing once you are locked on to the target. Freqs are limited but I hear the sr-60 can program any frequency.

    You can program the 60 with EVERY other manufacturers frequency out there (good if you have multiple pices of equipment from others), both the box and the locating unit itself, you can crank that sonbitch up to 10 and break the knob off if you want.

    My only other complaint is the way it is designed when holding it, kind of bulky and clumsy feeling. Other than that and the batteries, I LOVED everything about it. If I EVER go back to locating I want THAT to work with.

    I use the shit out of my SR20.
    1. Streaming current and depth interfaces nicely with a GPS.
    2. They are deadly accurate on deep lines. More so than any other I've used.
    3. They're flimsy.
    4. They are pretty pricey.
    5. Nice warranty.
