 GA-52Cx Features

Schonstedt™ underground magnetic locators have been setting the standards for reliability and dependability for over 40 years. They are designed to withstand the rigors of daily on-site usage and a wide range of environmental conditions.

  • Unmatched sensitivity allows you to find what you’re looking for quickly, without the risk of passing over your target.
  • Our locators last 100% to 250% longer than others, making your investment a solid one.
  • 85% of the Surveyor market can’t be wrong.


The GA-52Cx Locator detects the magnetic field of iron and steel objects. Both provide audio detection signals that peak in frequency when the locator’s tip is held directly over the target.

No. 1 Around the World in Performance and Reliability

A Long Time Fan

Fantastic equipment! I have been using your products since the late 1970's, from land surveying tasks to municipal utility work, and they perform wonderfully in all types of weather. From surveying in the heat of the Dakotas, to the islands of Arkansas, to the winters in Michigan, they have performed well. Keep up the good work.

    GA52 Magnetic Locator Schonstedt

    The Schonstedt GA-52Cx Magnetic Locator detects the magnetic field of iron and steel objects providing audio detection signals that peak in frequency when the magnetic locators tip is held directly over the target. In basic terms, if a magnet can stick to it, this locator can detect it.
