Products

Prices do not include shipping charges.

All lead Sets are Hand Made in the USA NOT Machine made and are individually tested. Everything you see on this website is built in-house from OEM components. For my staright lead sets I use a larger gauge & higher quality, High flex, tinned copper lead wire resulting in stronger leads. Period.

We manufacture different Direct Connect leads sets for Radio Detection, certain Ditch Witch, Certain Dynatel, certain Metrotech, certain Pipehorn, certain Subsite & certain Vivax equipment. Many of my lead sets will fit other transmitters that are not listed depending on the end connector as many have common wiring configurations.

ALL of my leads sets use the insulated Crocodile Clips on the ends as used on the Radio Detection RD 8000. Only the transmitter connector plug is different unless otherwise noted. These have been found to have the best opening capacity, (approximately 1" or 25 mm), and longevity of all of the end connector clips I have used.

Warranty : I test every set before it leaves here so I warranty that they work when I ship them to you but I will repair or replace them if they fail for any electrical or mechanical problem in the first 30 days. I will not warranty broken off crocodile clips or wires pulled out of the connector from abuse, cut wires, normal wear & tear, etc. Returns to me to review the problem are at your expense. They will be repaired or replaced at my discretion.

Our standard direct connect straight lead sets are 10 Ft but we can make up sets in any length you want. We can also "Private Label" lead sets or have "No Label" if they will be used for resale. Please note that custom made sets are non-returnable and non-refundable. Just use the "Contact" button and email us for a quote.

A FREE small size "Cable Cuff Pro", a Reusable Cable Management Tool, is supplied with every set of straight leads purchased while supplies last!

Heavy Duty RD Leads

These lead sets fit the Radio Detection RD4000, RD7000, RD7100, RD8000 & the RD8100 and use the 8 pin plug.

The Heavy Duty * RD lead set I sell is is 10 ft per lead or a useable distance of about 19 ft when spread apart, (6" is kept together near the connector end for an additional strain relief) and are ready to plug in and use.

I use the OEM RD equipment plug & the OEM insulated Crocodile clips, the lead wire is High Quality, Heavy Duty, 16 awg kinkless, vinyl coated, stranded 65/34 tinned copper wire, resistant to chemical corrosion and fungus.
Tinned, copper lead wire is important as when the insulation gets cut the leads wires get moisture and untinned copper stranded wire can get brittle and break.

* Please Note: the factory leads supplied from Radio Dectection and others are 18 awg or 20 awg wire with thick insulation but the wire is a smaller diameter than the Heavy Duty 16 awg wire I use for my for my straight lead sets.

About

As a former locate technician, I have had to deal with the inevitable lead or clamp failure.


Unfortunately it's a matter of "when" not "if" they will fail in our line of work.

I wasn't happy with the construction and durability of the factory leads so I designed my own set using a higher quality and larger gauge wire and different assemby tecniques.

After making some for associates, I started Rdleads.com in 2013 and have expanded from just leads for the Radio Detection RD 8000 to leads for older Radio Detection products, Ditch Witch 830T, certain Metrotech products, certain Vivax products and for the Subsite 910/950.

Repairs

  • Radio Detection Leads


  • When your leads arrive for repair I inspect them to determine what parts are missing or defective then arrive at a cost and will contact you with a cost estimate of all parts and labor and a time estimate prior to doing any repairs. This estimate is free.


    Please keep in mind that the wires will be cut back at each each end as these are the failure points and your repaired leads will be slightly shorter.


    If you decide not to do the repairs, upon request, your leads will be returned to you at your expense, (a PayPal invoice for the shipping cost will be emailed and when it is paid your items are returned.)


    Please note that it is usually NOT cost effective to send a single set for repair as you will also have the cost of the return shipping. Wait until you have multiple sets before you have them repaired.


    Do NOT under any circumstances send any equipment to me for repair without me approving in advance as I accept no responsibility for items I have not authorized to be sent to me.

  • Radio Detection Clamps


  • When your clamp arrives for repair I inspect it to determine what parts are missing or defective then arrive at a cost and will contact you with a cost estimate of all parts and labor and a time estimate prior to doing any repairs.


    Please keep in mind that the cable will be cut back at each each end as these are the failure points and your repaired clamp cable length will be slightly shorter. If it is determined that the wires inside the cable are badly oxidized and have to be cut back too much, a cost for replacement cable is currently about $30.00. If the ends of the clamp to stay closed but do not make contact evenly, a PVC clamp "guide" can be fabricateed and attached to one side at a cost of about $15.00.


    Labor runs $45.00/hr plus the parts costs and the return shipping. It takes about 3/4 hr to 1-1/2 hrs for a clamp repair depending on its condition.
