Tempo 508S has always worked well for me.

Thanks, James. That's the one I was using but I can't find it. I need a wire finder finder. ha. Buried in storage I guess.

Yah, we switched to the Armada Pro 800 last year. That unit rocks! 200% of the performance of the previous wire tracker we had been using.

Mike go over to the irrigation forum and ask idjim, he is the wire locating guru.

If you are going to be in business for the long term, take the advice of the others and go Armada 800.

We put 2 - 800's into service last year right after getting a few 521A locators earlier. We just purchased 2 more 800's this year for the simple reason; they are far superior over anything else out there.

Wow! Just what I've been looking for. I don't need a large wire locator such as the irrigation guys use and didn't want to spend the $600+ Here's this unit made specifically for LV applications for a couple hundred. Thanks for coming over here jim and giving this tip.
