Mag 5s HDD Locating System


Extreme Fire Power for Fiber

The Mag 5s is designed with urban utility construction and fiber installation in mind. Areas with high active interference and heavy rebar and wire mesh under concrete are no match for this powerful system. You can start your bore under a rebar-saturated parking lot with sub-kHz frequencies and finish 100 feet deep under a creek with 41 kHz frequency, using one Mag 5s system. With this power and versatility, the Mag 5s simply gets you from point A to point B with the most advanced interference killing technology in its class, and at a lower price point than the competitors’ most basic units.
