VM-850 Pipe and Cable Locator

Vivax-Metrotech VM850 Pipe locatorThe NEW VM-850 is designed specifically as a single frequency true left/right locator with separated twin response left/right antennas. New Product!

Metrotech, one of the original names in Pipe & Cable locating, has been producing the well tried and tested 850 for over forty years. The instrument includes a distance sensitive left/right guidance systemTM (pioneered by Metrotech) to provide accurate easy locating.

The 850 are the locators of choice for many Customers around the world. We continue to sell impressive quantities of both. Over recent years components for these products have been made obsolete, increased in cost, and are increasingly becoming difficult to find. This presented the challenge of designing a new VM-850 without losing the features and performance that made it successful. We believe we have met the challenge - the new VM-850 combines the classic look with stunning simplicity and performance - if you liked the classic 850’s you will love theDownload the brochure new one.
