    A good advancement in wall scanning.
    It does what they say it will do. However, it is a sensitive detector and you need to learn to use it. For example, when you have water pipes, electrical wires, and wall studs in close proximity, you may have to change the mode setting to distinguish the differences in materials and their location. Power consumption does increase significantly with use of the back lighting, but this is probably to be expected with most any design. Since it worked for me, I recommend this tool and believe it to be a good value.

    better every time
    I have had this unit for about 1 and a half years , the first times I used it I thought what a waste of money. Please take the time and read the user manual, I did and now , look forward to use it all the time. And it has been 100 % bang on every time, love it . but like I say read the manual and you have to slide it slowely , .

    Really sensitive and rugged instrument
    I primarily use this tool to locate studs and rafters. When it find the center of a stud it is spot on probably within a 16th of an inch of the center. It will also find scraps left behind when used on ceilings, don't get fooled. It doesn't work as well at finding electrical wiring, but does locate copper piping fairly well. It's a good idea to practice with it in an area where you know where the items you are looking for are located. A felt tip marker makes a good accurate point through the target hole.

    good on metal stud and wood but electric wires ...
    it detects metal stud and 2x4 perfectly right on the center but when it comes to live wires it gets nothing it doesn't detect a thing at all. little bit bulky design as well compared to other detecter. what i like is the hole at the top to mark ur center .

    Works well (too well)
    In a few areas it reads too deep. Ie, picked up the range on the other side of the wall I was checking for conduit.

    Hi
    Was wondering if you ever sell this reconditioned wall scanner with the case
    Thanks
    Mike
    Mike on Jan 12, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Mike,

    Unfortunately, with reconditioned tools, it's uncertain whether or not the cases would be included.
    Do you ship to Australia ? And how much for the shipping cost ?

    Regards

    New Vs. Reconditioned

    What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

    Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
    • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
    • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
    • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
