Frequently Asked Questions

Are Schonstedt Locators Made in the USA?

Yes, all Schonstedt devices are made in the USA. The company was founded in Reston, Virginia in 1953. Today, it operates out of Kearneysville, West Virginia. The history and proven track record of Schonstedt mean you can be confident in your purchase. Plus, you will also be supporting American jobs.

What Is the Difference Between a Magnetic Locator and a Pipe and Cable Locator?

As the name implies, magnetic locators detect magnetic fields. These are naturally emitted by iron and steel. Conversely, pipe and cable locators detect electromagnetic fields. These can either be the field emitted by wires and cables or a field emitted by the transmitter. In the case of the latter, the device detects objects interacting with the field.

How Do I Choose the Right Schonstedt Locator for Me?

Each Schonstedt magnetic locator or pipe and cable locator has unique benefits and drawbacks. For example, the GA-92XTd is very compact and easy to carry. The GA-52Cx is extremely sensitive and rugged. Evaluate your job needs to find the right option. The Engineer Supply team is happy to help you find the right choice for you.

Do I Need a Separate Carrying Case?

No, all the Schonstedt tools come with carrying cases. The GA-52Cx, GA-72Cd and GA-92TXd have hard cases. The Maggie has a soft carrying case and the REX has a shoulder bag. Engineer Supply also has transportation cases for storing your tools.

Why Are Locators Important?

When digging, it is essential to know what you may hit underground. Additionally, if you need to find a target component, you need to be able to effectively trace it. No matter why you need to locate metal objects and utilities underground, locators are the key to getting visibility.
