Why does the Schonstedt GA-92XT Locator cost so much?
Just like a sports car, iPod, or any other modern convenience that's designed to offer the highest degree of functionality in the smallest package possible, Schonstedt's line of GA-92XT magnetic locators tend to have a higher price tag than some of the less-sophisticated detectors out there. Why the steep price tag? To begin with, Schonstedt produces their locators to extremely high standards right in the USA, as opposed to manufacturing them more cheaply overseas - and this pride in quality shows in each and every piece of equipment. Next, consider the convenience factor: Schonstedt's GA-92XT is small enough to operate with one hand, which makes finding property markers, well casings, cast iron pipes, and unexploded ordinance a far simpler task than it used to be. And then there's the 7 year warranty, which is unrivaled by any other compact locator on the market - sounds pretty good after all, doesn't it?

  • Patented HeliFlux® sensors assure your locator is as technologically advanced as a space satellite
  • Piezoelectric speaker assures the sound quality is crystal
  • Comes in a custom case which protects is during transport and on the job sites
  • Holster is standard with each finder for hands free carrying
  • Unit operates in both the retracted and the extended position so if there is limited capability to open, it still operates
  • Control the volume and sensitivity with just a finger allowing you to modify easily and quickly
  • Battery compartment is readily accessible for quick changes
  • 7 year manufacturer warranty
  • Made in the USA
