Electronic Locating System

Ditch Witch announces the release of a new electronic locating system, the 720ML. Designed for ease of use and engineered to be extraordinarily sensitive, the 720ML can detect metallic or ferrous objects such as marker stakes, manhole covers, valve boxes, and cast-iron pipe around excavation and horizontal directional drilling jobsites.

The 720ML has only two controls, located at the base of the display housing, so it can be easily operated with one hand. Its easy-to-read digital bar graph displays signal strength and polarity to help pinpoint the target, and the operator has a choice of two audio modes. Four sensitivity settings allow the operator to customize the 720ML to suit soil conditions.

The lightweight 720ML is easy to use for extended lengths of time, and two 9-V lithium batteries keep it operating for more than 60 hours. The unit also comes standard with a rugged case to withstand the rigors of field use.
