Magnetic Locators

    MAGNETIC LOCATORS & BUYER’S GUIDE

    Magnetic Locators are specialized instruments used to find buried ferrous metal objects. Ferrous metal is primarily composed of iron and has magnetic properties. Because Magnetic Locators only detect ferrous metals, they are widely used in property surveying, excavation, or plumbing projects to locate buried ferrous objects ranging from the smallest corner pins to large septic tanks and drums. In surveying, Magnetic Locators are useful in locating underground utility lines, property pins, or corner markers. Tiger Supplies is a trusted dealer of professional-grade Magnetic Locators for sale from leading brands such as Schonstedt, ChrisNik, CST/Berger, Pipehorn, and SubSurface Instruments.

    BUYER’S GUIDE FOR MAGNETIC LOCATOR

    Magnetic Locator Vs Metal Detector

    While both Magnetic Locators and Metal Detectors are used to find metals, Metal Detectors are designed to find all types of metals while Magnetic Locators can only find ferrous metals. 

    How Does A Magnetic Locator Work?

    Unlike other types of locators, Magnetic Locators do not emit a signal. Instead, it detects and measures the magnetic field distortion surrounding a buried metal target and gives an audiovisual alert whenever a magnetic distortion is detected. For most units, the audio signal gets louder as it approaches the target. The depth and orientation of the target affect the signals of the locator, making it crucial to know the nuances of a specific model’s audio and visual alerts. 

    Features of Magnetic Locators

    Magnetic Locators are lightweight, easy to operate with one hand, and rugged. Many models are also waterproof and safe for underwater detection like the SubSurface GRAD-ELEC Gradiometer. Magnetic Locators can detect targets buried from 20” to as deep as 1000 feet. You can also adjust their detection sensitivity. 

    When it locates an object, the locator alerts the operator with an audible tone, visual bar graph, or both. Options such as LCD displays and keypads help you manage these functions. Some Magnetic Locators for sale even have a backlight that allows you to read the display in poor lighting.

    All of our Magnetic Locators are also durable and waterproof for accurate location in dirty or wet conditions like rain or snow.

    Accessories for Magnetic Locators

    Most Magnetic Locators are powered by alkaline batteries. Many also come with soft or hard cases for convenient transportation and storage. Tiger Supplies provides all the accessories you’ll need to use your Magnetic Locator straight out of the box.

    Locating buried metals is a crucial part of preparing the job site to avoid costly mistakes. Browse our shop for top-of-the-line Magnetic Locators for sale at the best price.
