Fisher M-97 Metal Detector

The M-97 is an all-metal metal detector that can search through concrete and asphalt and was designed for finding buried or paved over valves, boxes, or manhole covers, or any other concealed metallic object. It also locates targets made of aluminum, brass and lead.

Please remember, like all Valve and Box Locators, the M-97 is a Metal Detector which should not be used as a substitute for a Utility Line Tracer. Fisher Research Laboratory manufactures a complete line of equipment for Line Tracing (Pipe and Cable Tracing). New to the M series is the ease with which the M-97 can be stored. Just compact the lower stem, twist the search coil 90 degrees, and fold the search coil flat. The M-97 fits easily into the optional carrying case. In the Fisher tradition, the M-97 is affordable, tough, and simple to use while providing maximum performance. A two year limited warranty comes standard with the unit.
