ML-1 M Magnetic Locator and ML-1M Magnetic Locator (Metered/Digital)

The ML-1 is one of SSI’s longest-enduring and popular 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-1 features strong monotube construction, providing structural integrity you can count on.


  • The electronic keypad “clicks” when a key is depressed. A “real” speaker is in the front panel, providing outstanding volume.
  • Microprocessor remembers the volume and gain settings from the last time the unit was on Non-metered (ML-1) and metered (ML-1M) versions are designed to look, feel and operate the same
  • Strong aluminum monotube construction from the tip through the end of the handle and ABS injection-molded electronics case (3 ¼” tapered to 2 ½”-wide X 4 ½” tapered to 2 ½”-deep) provide the best structural integrity in a hand-held locator.
