The ML-1M is one of SubSurface's longest-enduring and industry-leading products for magnetic detection. Whether you're seeking corner markers (iron or steel), well casings, steel drums or septic tank handles, this is the go-to magnetic locator for you. And for good reason. The ML series offers simple one-handed operation with an easy-to-learn keypad featuring only three buttons - no menus or cumbersome instructions to follow. The audio unit has the volume built into the on/off key; just hold down the key while it cycles through the settings. The ML-1M features strong monotube construction, providing structural integrity you can count on. In addition to the features of the original ML-1, the ML-1M is metered, offering you added features without added complexity. The digital meter provides for visual signal strength, polarity indication, gain setting plus battery life display. These versions are engineered to operate identically with the same controls.
