  1. Dear David.
    Would this GPR be your first choice for a buried services location company? What would it be if it wasn’t this?
    Thanks. Best regards

    1. Appreciate the comment ๐Ÿ˜‰
      This would be a great choice for most utility locators. It isnt the cheapest, Proceq software has more advanced features then the competition, however I have had connection issues onsite with proceq software aswell, Which can cause frustrating delays in scanning. The main competition is the GSSI GPR models, which I recommended if the capital expense makes sense. A similar GSSI model can cost about 20% more, however it is more reliable and a great build quality, has all features, however software takes some time and reading to figure out. There are basic GPR models like Opera Duo for about $15000. Overall GSSI is the most trusted brand on the market for utility locators.
