    I am ready to buy a valve and wire locater for locating irrigation valve boxes. What are the best options. I have read that the tempo 521 is among the best.

    I think we need to stop talking about the 521 on this site, I'm worried it's going to drive up all the e-bay bids and I won't get to realize my fantasy of picking one up for $50.:jester:

    It's a good machine but only as good as the operator who interprets the signals. At least on ours sites there's a lot of ghosts out there created by all the utilities in the ground.
