Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JMC Not very durable...
It lasted for about 9 months with light use. The manufactured hinges ended up wearing out, and I had to replace the pivot point with a screw.

Have not used it, but expecting it to work as described. Taking it to Alabama to measure set backs on my new purchased land.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ElKabong Don't know why they bother making this wheel
At times a rolling wheel is absolutely indispensable in my business and I have purchased 2 of these Lufkin wheels but I will never purchase another. Shoddy quality and the price has increased all out of proportion to the value delivered. On one of my two broken wheels the internal gears have striped and on the other the shabby folding handle latch has broken leaving the wheel worthless. NEVER AGAIN!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nick Poor quality and design
Reset button never worked smoothly. The folding handle latch eventually broke. After repeated uses the dial is off kilter.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mudflaps Nice Wheel
Bought this wheel to measure distances for an outdoor range (laser struggled in fog). Works well on crushed granite, which the smaller wheels didn't. I haven't had this for very long so I can's speak to durability but so far it seems fairly solid and holds up well to being thrown in the back of the truck.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by D1040 For small projects
Lasted three days the handle is fasten to the aluminum shaft with rivets which pulled through the aluminum. Not a good tool for large construction projects.

I'm a contractor and needed a large measuring wheel. This one looked good on the shelf but when I opened it on the jobsite it is completely missing the clip that locks the handle open. It is packaged to where you can't tell this before you buy it. Reading some other reviews, I guess missing the clip is no big deal as many say the clip quickly breaks anyway. I had to use the wheel with a floppy handle and am now trying to figure out how to get a clip to replace the missing one.
