Locating Equipment


We trust RIDGID Tools for our locating equipment. Why? The answer is simple…trust. Millions of RIDGID tools go to work every day in plants, on construction sites and in countless other harsh environments. These tools operate in extremes of heat and cold, withstand dirt and mud, and perform reliably day in and day out. RIDGID tools are known the world over as industry-leading products that allow professionals like you to complete jobs more quickly and reliably.

Cues is our top brand for sewer inspection equipment and their Accupoint precision locator provides depth measurement, guidance and compass orientation to allow for easier sonde and line locating with greater efficiency and safety.

Schonstedt manufactures two types of instruments used to locate underground objects: Magnetic Locators – to find ferrous metals such as boundary markers, paved-over valve and manhole covers, drums and storage tanks, well casings, septic tanks, land mines, unexploded ordnance, etc. Pipe and Cable Locators – to find and trace any linear, electrically conductive material such as telephone, cable TV and fiber optic lines, water and gas pipes, and AC power lines.

Radiodetection also offers three types of radio locating devices, the RD8200G, RD8200 and the RD7200. Each Radiodection model provides reliable and accurate detection in rugged environments through a user-friendly LCD screen and high-performance alert system.

MTech sells utility-locating equipment from several top manufacturers, including RIDGID, Cues, Schonstedt and Radiodetection. By providing quality tools from the best brands, we give your operation the necessary underground utility locators to prevent damage when working on construction or project sites. 

The equipment uses electromagnetic or ground-penetrating radar to reliably locate underground pipes and wires. These devices improve productivity for your business by promoting safety and using the most advanced technology from industry-leading brands. MTech also offers both product specific and general industry utility locator training.

Ridgid Utility Locators

RIDGID products transmit signals into the ground to identify hidden dangers that could impact a building project. Here are a few of the products we offer:

  • Locating receivers: SeekTech and NaviTrack receivers use an omnidirectional antenna to visually map utility lines and find sondes. You can use them with a SeeSnake camera or a line transmitter. 
  • Line transmitters: Use direct connection mode or an induction signal to trace buried utilities. You can choose from 5-watt and 10-watt power options. 
  • Adaptors: Use an adaptor with SeekTech or NaviTrack products to provide a flexible power option that connects to an 18-volt battery. 

RIDGID locators can find more than just utilities. The MR-10 magnetic locator finds buried objects made of iron or steel, like cast iron pipes, well casings and maintenance hole covers. The A-Frame Fault Locator finds insulation faults in buried wire. The best part about any Ridgid locator is how incredibly easy and intuitive it is to use.

Cues Accupoint Utility Locator

The locator uses three different sonde frequencies to trace various non-metallic pipes. It also has four active line-locating frequencies. This equipment uses a visual display and audio signals to guide users toward the target cable or pipe with less guesswork. The device also visually indicates a pipe's location for easier following and provides depth readings when positioned above the target, giving you all the necessary information to complete locating tasks. 

Schonstedt Magnetic Locators

These instruments are designed for one-handed operation, allowing users to control them more easily. Most types of underground locating equipment from this brand also come with a padded carrying case to protect the device when not in use and make it easier for your team to transport their tools to various job sites. These instruments also include four to five levels of sensitivity control to make locating more precise. 

Radiodetection Utility Locating Equipment

With these devices, you can locate pipes and cables quickly and accurately, boosting your operation's productivity. You can also prevent damage to buried objects. The instruments are lightweight and easy to carry, providing less fatigue for workers. They are also rugged to withstand wear and inclement weather conditions at job sites. 

Three models provide varying levels of detection to fit any job. The RD8200G is the most advanced option and works incredibly well for damage prevention. The RD8200 provides precision and accuracy, making it an excellent choice for urban environments with many crisscrossing underground pipes and cables. The RD7200 is a practical, everyday detection tool to trace even long-distance pipelines.
