Magnetic Locating Introduction

For over half a century Schonstedt has been the worldwide leader in designing and manufacturing underground metal locators.

It began back in 1953 with the development of the GA-52Cx, the "yellow stick" that remains the choice of surveyors around the world to find underground markers, septic tanks, and other ferrous objects. The GA-72Cd soon followed, complete with extra-rugged construction, a visual display, and a sensitivity indicator that makes it the underground locator of choice, especially useful in unexploded ordnance (UXO) and demining applications. Rounding out the magnetic line is the innovative GA-92XT series, the most portable, accurate, and easy-to-use magnetic locator in use today. The XT retracts to fit in its holster (included), and extends for one-handed operation and fingertip control.

Testimonials

Although we are half a world away I am genuinely impressed by the level of service and total commitment attitude of Schonstedt. I could also add that in a day and age when planned obsolescence is the norm, Schonstedt has certainly broken the mold.
