Good locator

I couldn't decide between three and four stars for this review. I am not overly impressed with the design of the cover, where you have to expose all the electrical workings just to put the batteries in. Having said that, it does work well for finding buried pins.

The Trig Instruments staff member I talked to, said that although these are an older design, there are a lot of them on the market and they do give a good life span. I have since looked at their other brand on Trig Instruments display at the NZIS conference and I think I like it a bit more. I will keep going with this one, but next time I will try the other one I think.
