    That's what I think too, but I had to rewind the DVR to make sure I heard it right.

    Curious if it was just a mistake in the voice over script or a "producer embellishment" decision to write the script using 10 ft instead of 10 inches

    It detects 10ft deep once you have removed the first 9ft of soil.

    Reminds me of a Discovery show where they were showing a firetruck factory. Made a claim the CNC laser could cut with 1 millionth of an inch accuracy.
    Total BS. I used to work for the CNC mfg. Had an accuracy of ~ +/-.004" per meter.

    and then only if the target was a Greyhound bus parked over a soda can, lying next to a bottlecap rubbing up against a zinc penney..
