    Just a Rycom 8879 here. I wish I had a second piece of equiptment but they took them away. It would be nice to have a back up just incase my primary locator broke.

    I mainly use the 4000 ive used a new rycom but when coupling it doesnt seem to catch everything. I have a 4 ft deep att duct when coupling with the rycom nothing hook up the 4000 it bang out a awsome tone I just dont trust them nomore now I used to use the ol rycom with the yellow wand and the reciever strapped to your neck awsome for gas and long locates out in the country would tone a hot pair on a cable for miles.

    Watch that copper rod dude! At $4.00 a pound for copper you could get mugged if locating in the wrong areas!
