First off, the best price I've found for a new one is $790 at the moment. Is that even close to a good price?

Second, I want to be able to trace more than irrigation wire with this. Can I attach it to a phone or cable ped and do utility locates?

What about 110v or 220v drops?

I paid about $800 for mine new and yes you can trace cable TV ,telephone, power lines, gas line tracer wire and invisible dog fences.

Keep your eyes open on eBay. You can find them very reasonable some times.

Yes it will trace anything. If its over 3 feet deep its a little weak. But 0to 3 feet it works great.

I think eBay prices can be around 3-400 dollars, and I'll expect you could pay less for a comparable device carrying another less-known brand name. You could also pay more for a device carrying another name.
