This unit is amazing! Recently I ran over the ML3 with a 12,500 LB Backhoe. While the shaft has a two inch bend to it, the unit still works flawlessly. Unbelievable!

I own 5 septic tank trucks in NC and we run all day long. These work great for locating tank tops. The short version I'm happy with since we only locate tank tops and these fit in the truck easily.

Happy with this unit but next time I think I will buy the longer version of this model since I thin the longer version would be easier on swinging back and forth.

Made in the USA The ML-3 is a much-anticipated and welcome addition to the ML family of magnetic locators from SSI. ML-3 magnetic locators represent the best in innovation at work for the water/sewer industry, surveying industry and military.

That's because the ML-3 reflects many of the items on our customers' technological wish lists. The ML-3 short is 40" to meet surveyors' personal preference, providing an ergonomic, lightweight, rugged, one-handed operation option to traditional magnetic locators. The ML-3 offers unparalleled durability, as all components are housed inside the aircraft-grade aluminum monotube units.

But don't let its looks fool you. It's 100 percent waterproof up to 220 feet - a first for the industry - so it can be used in difficult weather and submerged under water. Plus, its auto-zero feature allows the user to "cancel" ambient magnetics or magnetic gradient in the soil or water. And it's digitally tuned, so it offers unparalleled accuracy in detecting ferromagnetic objects.
