This advanced yet easy-to-use locator is specially designed for finding buried or paved-over valves, boxes, manhole covers or other concealed metallic objects. It also locates targets made of aluminum, brass and lead.
Pushbutton tuning quickly and easily maintains optimum sensitivity for pin-pointing of buried metallic objects. Also features auto-tune circuitry and ground effect rejection VLF (very low frequency) control, which eliminates annoying false signals from wet foliage, pavement or mineralized ground.
The M-97 features an adjustable shaft with double-locking stem. The waterproof search coil holds up extremely well when locating in adverse conditions. The unit folds up for convenient transportation and storage. Just compact the lower stem, twist the search coil 90°, and fold the search coil flat. The M-97 then fits easily into the optional carrying case.
The M-97 is available with either an 8" or an 11" search coil. Both versions operate on two 9V batteries (included).
