  • Help to compare Rigid active transmitters.

    I am over the purchase shock of the 200' color lcd/ self/ dvd/ sonde & scout. Looking towards this summers pending excavation jobs I feel I must purchase a transmitter. Typically our public locates are on the money except that our rural township's employees use devining rods to locate the water lines. I am interested in either of Ridgid's 5 or 10 watt transmiters to go with the scout. Typical we dig for sewer lateral replacement in medium dry sand with municipal water lines 8' to 12' deep. There is typically a copper exterior faucet to attach a lead within 60' of our excavation. Open to your recommendations?

    I have read here on the forums that the 5 watt transmitter is more then enough unless you are doing locates on lines 1/4 to a half mile long then you need to bump up...

      The scout is great for locating the sondes but for utility lines you should be using the seektech You can read about each one on the Ridgid web site.
