Principles of Underground Magnetic Locating

Time to make a move to the new Schonstedt XTD, the greatest innovation in magnetic locating since the celebrated "yellow stick".  In its holster, the XTD leaves both hands free on the way to the job site, then gives you the freedom to do your best work with one hand tied behind your back.

Make Your Move to the Schonstedt XTD Magnetic Locator.

The locator that's always by your side, whenever you need it.

One-hand operation makes finding faster, providing both audio and visual (XTd model) indication of ferrous objects up to 16 feet underground.  And the new XT follows the Schonstedt tradition of ruggedness and reliability.  So go ahead, make your move to the new Schonstedt GA-92XT.

Detect the magnetic fields of all ferromagnetic objects like property markers, manholes, septic tanks, well casings, valve boxes, cast iron pipes, steel drums and unexploded ordnance up to sixteen feet below the surface.

The GA-92XTd includes a custom case designed to withstand the rigors of field use and a carrying holster.
