Acurate deep depth/stud fined
Finds studs and metal under drywall that other stud finders don't find. Very accurate. Wish it had live electrical finder, maybe the next model will

Works great. Easy to understand and use. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because at this price point they should have included live wire detection. Made in excellent milwaukee standards, lightweight and sturdy. Gives great stud location with a diagram on screen, also works great on metal in concrete detection.

what is the difference between the 2290 and 2291
Contractor on Jan 5, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Actually both gentlemen that previously answered this question answered incorrectly. The 2290 is the earlier (and now discontinued) version that had voltage detection. The 2291 (current model) does not have the voltage detection.
The 2291-20 would be the tool only. The 2291-21 would be the tool kit that includes the battery, charger, and case.
Does this item detect conduit and plumbing in concrete
Fernando on Sep 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: METAL Mode In metal mode, the Sub-Scanner will detect both ferrous (>14 mm Ø) and non-ferrous (>16 mm Ø) metals in concrete up to a depth of 6". The Sub-Scanner can not reliably detect metal behind mate- rial of varying densities. Materials such as carpet, wire metal mesh backing, damp walls, and stucco may affect readings. Alternating surfaces, such as thick grout lines or extremely heavy plaster on drywall, may be detected or show as metal or studs. STUD Mode In Stud mode, the Sub-Scanner will detect wood or metal studs and joists behind wall board, wooden panels, plaster or other non-metallic wall materials. The Sub-Scanner can not reliably detect studs behind material of varying densities. Materials such as carpet, wire metal mesh backing, damp walls, and stucco may affect readings. Alternating surfaces, such as thick grout lines or extremely heavy plaster on drywall, may be detected or show as metal or studs.
Will this scanner detect PVC pipe buried in concrete about 6" deep

metals in concrete up to a depth of 6". The Sub-Scanner can not reliably detect metal behind mate-
rial of varying densities. Materials such as carpet, wire metal mesh backing, damp walls, and stucco
may affect readings. Alternating surfaces, such as thick grout lines or extremely heavy plaster on
drywall, may be detected or show as metal or studs.
STUD Mode
In Stud mode, the Sub-Scanner will detect wood or metal studs and joists behind wall board, wooden
panels, plaster or other non-metallic wall materials. The Sub-Scanner can not reliably detect studs
behind material of varying densities. Materials such as carpet, wire metal mesh backing, damp
walls, and stucco may affect readings. Alternating surfaces, such as thick grout lines or extremely
heavy plaster on drywall, may be detected or show as metal or studs.
Would this scanner be able to detect the actual thickness of a concrete slab? I understand this product can detect things within a concrete slab but what about the thickness?
Paul on Jan 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The scanner can detect rebar up to 6" in concrete. It will not inform you of the thickness of the slab.
