UtiliGuard® Locating Equipment

Need Accuracy? You Just Found It.

In utility work, accuracy is everything. More accuracy means less risk. So, we packed the Ditch Witch UtiliGuard with accuracy-enhancing features, highlighted by AIM®, which automatically recommends the best frequency. UtiliGuard also has a 12-watt transmitter that sends signals farther, an easier-to-read display and many other features you won’t find on any other locating system. Only UtiliGuard.

Innovative Design

Choose from 70 standard frequencies via user­-configurable software.

AIM® scans the surrounding area for noise and recommends the best frequencies for the fastest, most accurate locates.

The only locating system that provides the horizontal and vertical distance (depth) to the utility, to enable users to make accurate locates of obstructed utilities.

Ruggedly built UtiliGuard has an industry­-best IP65 rating, to ensure excellent performance in dusty, dirty or wet jobsite conditions.

Six­-button, intuitive operator interface is easy to learn and use and includes multiple languages.

High­-contrast LCD display is visible in all conditions, including direct sunlight.


Dual­-output 12-­watt transmitter drives signals farther down large, direct­-buried utilities.

Dual-­output transmitter connects to two utilities at once, reducing the time required to locate multiple services.


Superior battery life—transmitter 100 hours, receiver 30 hours—is more than twice as long as the competition’s.

Bluetooth® technology simplifies communication and data transfer to other communication devices.

UtiliGuard is direction enabled, i.e., provides the direction of the current to help you identify the target line.
