I'm sure the technology on this instrument is very good, the price I cant justified it but I believe the user interface can be much easier to read with that very nice display, the display is a beauty but there is way more cheaper scanners with a way cheaper display and it is much easier to see, recognized, identify what we see on their very basic
calculator display.

I am trying to give my honest opinion because I love this brand and believe in it!

I am a big Makita fan, all my power tools are Makita and my next power tools will also be Makita. Keep up the good job guys!

Does anyone have a clue if this would work for locating rafters thru a roof?

Can you scan for studs through stucco or hardy board?

I would've expected a much better display and colour coding, and even better screen (a $100 phone has better screens than this) I'm really disappointed with that, I don't need it for concrete which seems the main feature of this tool... but honestly, there are scanners that you attach to your phone that give a better picture of whats behind a wall.

I had the Bosch unit it used to beep at everything behind a wall never knew what was what. I would love a scanner that actually sees through, up to 1” of gyprock! And it literally said cable, stud pipe, think these are still at the guessing stage! For now I will stick to my £4 drill bit to let me know what is behind the wall 🤪 everyone like a gamble eh!!

Had this and returned it. It will not tell you what it detected in drywall or any other material just shows object and depth. In drywall it only shows radar mode so wave forms that sorry I have no idea and don't wanna know. Bit harsh but at £1k I hoped for more. It does find rebar absolutely spot on and out of the 3 I tested Bosh and Hilti The Makita was teh best in my opinion. What let's it down is the size its huge

I use a Bosch roller scanner and this looks similar but a different graphical interface.

How does it go through tile? Specifically if it was a partition wall, fibre board sheeting then tile on top

Can it detect live/ not live wires? Can it detect pipes? Does it work on concrete blocks wall the same as reinforced wall?
Need more information when you spend this kind of money.

Why not use Lidar and better screen... Better to increase the price and actually have sales than to half ass it and nobody buys it so you end up losing money...

But you didn’t even show the other side of the drywall to prove the tool was correct? Who directed this rubbish video?! C’mon blokes!!
