Magnetic Locator Introduction
For over half a century, Schonstedt has been a leader in designing and manufacturing underground magnetic locators.
It began back in 1953 with the development of magnetometers for military & aerospace applications, giving us today 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 an underground locator of choice, especially useful in unexploded ordnance (UXO) and demining applications.
- Next came the innovative GA-92XTd: the extendable, easy-to-use and portable magnetic locator. The GA-92XTd retracts to fit in its holster, and extends for one-handed operation and fingertip control.
- MAGGIE is a pistol-grip magnetic locator that combines the best features of two flagship Schonstedt products—the sensitivity and precision of the GA-52Cx, and the single-handed operation and visual display of the GA-92XTd.
- Now comes Spot, the “Next Generation Stick Locator” with engineering and accuracy equal to the GA-52Cx, in a sleek, ultralight-weight package with improved ergonomics. If you’re looking for High Accuracy at a Lower Cost, put Spot on the trail of your next locate!
