Leica UTILIFINDER+ Buried Utility Locator

Reduce risk of utility strikes

Leica UTILIFINDER+ Locator

Cable and other utilities could run underneath any part of a domestic property. Before excavating for a path, landscaping a garden or installing a fence, it is critical to search for buried utilities.

The Leica UTILIFINDER+ is an intuitive detection system designed to easily locate buried utilities around domestic properties and small building sites.

Providing the perfect entry-level instrument, integrating ease of functionality with the latest digital detection technology, the UTILIFINDER+ provides the user with three utility search modes:

  • Auto

Detect live cables with Auto mode
Use Auto mode to search for loaded power cables and other utilities with a detectable signal. A signal is produced by a current passing through the utility and is detectable by the Leica UTILIFINDER+ in Auto mode. This mode also features a proximity alarm to warn of shallow buried utilities.


Induce a signal with UTILIGEN
Some cables may not carry a detectable current but still pose a serious threat if damaged. 

To detect these dormant cables, plug the UTILIGEN into a household socket and apply a detectable signal. Use the UTILIFINDER+ to detect this signal and obtain a depth reading with a simple press of a button.

Where possible, the signal will also connect onto other utilities, such as telecom cables and water pipes, which the UTILIFINDER+ will also detect.


Search for drains with Leica UTILIDRAIN
On occasions you may want to trace the route of drains or waste water pipes or find a blocked pipe. Insert UTILIDRAIN into the drain and pass along using drain rods or reels.

The UTILIDRAIN will emit a traceable signal which can be detected by the Leica UTILIFINDER+. Obtain a depth reading with a simple press of a button.


One instrument for all your detection needs
The UTILFINDER+ offers many options to work on any site. Locate buried utilities quicker and keep crews safer with:

  • Single trigger
    Positioned directly under the handle for simplicity of use, press and hold the trigger to activate UTILIFNDER+, release to switch off.  The use of a trigger extends battery life and removes the On/Off button, which can leave the instrument turned on, draining the battery power.
  • Large clear mono display
    The large clear display provides easy reading of the Signal Strength Indicator (SSI). This display provides easy reading and information to the utilities position. Numeric and graphical signal strength indicators provide a confident locate.
  • Audible confirmation sound
    Supporting the display, an audible sound confirms the presence of the detected utility.
  • Obtain a depth reading
    Knowing the depth of the utility provides additional information and can contribute to safer work practices.  Depth estimation is obtainable when using the UTILIGEN or UTILIDRAIN accessories and can be provided down to a depth of 3 metres.
  • Ruggedness
    Protecting against wet and damp conditions, the UTILIFINDER+ has been designed to be IP54 certified.
