    Overview for Schonstedt 43166 GA-72Cd Magnetic Locator with Carrying Case

    TheSchonstedt GA-72Cd Magnetic Locator helps users find iron and steel objects underground quickly and easily. Equipped with highly sensitive sensors and a rugged build, the GA-72Cd is widely used for finding not only surveyor pins, markers, and manhole covers, but also unexploded ordnance (UXO) and other explosive remnants of war (ERW) around the world. 

    Reliable Iron and Steel Detector With over 60 years of experience in manufacturing underground locators, Schonstedt is known for its reliable metal detectors trusted by industrial and military organizations worldwide. The GA-72Cd Magnetic Locator uses their patented HeliFlux sensors which are known to provide exceptional stability and ability to detect ferrous objects to extreme depths. In partnership with the United Nations, Schonstedt has donated hundreds of GA-72Cd locators to underserved countries, helping to demine huge minefields in vulnerable communities.  

    Easy to Use for Any Skill Level The GA-72Cd Magnetic Locator is simple to operate. Just turn it on and start detecting. It provides an audio signal that you can modify to either increase in frequency and volume or completely go silent when the locator’s tip is directly over the target. It also has a digital screen that displays signal strength, polarity, and battery status. The polarity and signal strength are indicated through a bar graph, allowing you to identify the size and nature of the object being detected. The audio and visual alerts work together to inform you further of the object’s orientation (whether vertical or horizontal) and if it’s a magnetically detectable nonmetallic duct, cable, or pipe.  

    The GA-72Cd has only two controls – one is a two-in-one knob that turns it on/off and adjusts the sensitivity level and the other for adjusting the volume. Both controls are located on the underside of the cover to provide easy, one-hand access during a search. 

    Rugged Build for Tough Conditions The GA-72Cd Magnetic Locator has a rugged, all-weather polycarbonate and ABS casing and a 21” waterproof tip, making sure it gets the job done even in tough environments. It operates for up to 60 hours of intermittent usage on two 9v batteries and can withstand extreme temperatures (-25°C to 60°C).  

    Built with reliability, ease of use, and ruggedness in mind, the Schonstedt GA-72Cd Magnetic Locator is the ultimate underground detector for quickly locating buried iron and steel targets even in demanding environments.
