Same - Superior high frequency (480 kHz) performance.  Pipehorn is the best tool in the industry when direct connect is not possible, and on the toughest conductors: coated iron pipes with insulated joints, unenergized power (street/parking lot lights), worn-out tracer tape & wire, short side services & stub-outs, concentric neutrals, and fiber.  Nothing sweeps areas for un-marked utilities like a Pipehorn.

New - Simultaneous conductive transmission of both high (480 kHz) and low (9 kHz) frequencies for congested areas and for long distance locates (800-HL).  Check either signal with the flick of a switch.

New - No more air broadcast on high frequency conduction. Better signals on the worst conductors.

New - Fast-response signal strength meter and sharp audio tone for precise pinpointing.

New - Watertight  reinforced receiver wand.  More durable than ever.

New - All weather / high impact ABS housing on transmitter.  Audio tone indicates battery strength and good connection. Low profile (wont tip over).  Bright yellow (easier to see).

New - Lightweight, space saving carry bag.

Two models available!  - A single high-frequency unit (480 kHz) and a dual frequency unit with both 480 kHz and 9 kHz for all of your locating needs.
