McLaughlin - McLaughlin GX Utility Locators

The McLaughlin GX is a utility locator designed for the professional locator. There are three locating modes: Peak Mode with Manual Gain Adjustment – the industry standard; Peak Mode with Semi-Auto Gain Adjust – narrows the peak signal for easier identification of utilities in congested areas and deep utilities; and Combination Peak & Null mode for quick detection of signal distortion.
