This was a relatively inexpensive measurement wheel, and it works just fine on hard surfaces (where it can easily keep traction). I was also pleased that the handle was long enough for someone 6'6" to comfortably use this. The counter (see picture) was easy to read and easy to re-set. I recommend this measuring wheel because it is a good value in comparison to other measuring wheels with more features you just may not need.

Light weight, compact, acurate
I use Lufkin 4 in. ABS Plastic and Aluminum Measuring Wheel in property preservation. I get paid by the size of lot I mow. With this measuring wheel, I can accurately measure home property lots. The pole collapses to were it takes up less space in my work truck and is light weight. And the pole will extend to a good length for walking.

I considered buying the larger model but decided that since this was a Lufkin product it would work well. I took it out for its maiden voyage in cold weather with a little ice on the ground and it worked like a champ. I have no complaints.

10k feet is nice since 5,280 is a mile. The small wheels make it difficult for rough terrain. Telescopes out & in easily. Simple enough.

Too Small of Diameter Wheels
If you're measuring a site with any type of rocky terrain even small rock, then this product is not for you.

    This was small and easy to carry, but did not work well outdoors. Indoors it also did not work well on long runs due to the two wheel design. The two wheel design made it accurate on short runs.

    Really nice measuring wheel
    I bought this measuring wheel for measuring large pastures on my farm. It did a great job and allowed me to then come up with the size of the pastures in acres. Not the best wheel for really tall grass and rough terrain. I'd go with the larger measuring wheel for that kind of terrain, but if you have short grass or any semi-smooth surface, this wheel works great..

    Works great on dry, smooth surfaces
    After reading some of the other reviews I tested 3 of these in the store and they all gave me the same reading over a distance of 35 ft. I bought one and used it the next two days on smooth concrete and linoleum floors. Worked great. Outdoors on rough asphalt it seemed to work fine but I didn't verify the readings with a tape. Before taking measurements over grass, gravel, etc. I'd check it against a tape or a unit with a full size wheel. My only complaint is the lack of a stand or wheel brake so you can let go and let it stand on its own or lean against a wall.

        Accurate, easy-to-use measuring device
        I bought this measuring wheel mainly for measuring my lawn for calculating needed product rates, such as fertilizers. Obviously, accuracy is less important for this application, but I still like to know that my measuring devices are accurate. So, I did a few tests to check it's accuracy, especially after reading other reviews of disappointed purchasers of this product. I did 10 tests of the roughly 29 foot width of my driveway. Before performing the tests, I placed hard stops at both start and stop locations to ensure that I was measuring the same (almost exact) span of driveway each time. In 5 of the test runs I came up with 28.65', 3 times it read 28.60', and 2 times it was 28.70'. Based on my calculations, I saw a roughly .17% margin of error. Stated another way, the most it was off was .6 inches over a 29 ft distance. It's quite possible that the variances came from slight drift of the wheel while placing it at the starting position, or even hitting a small piece of mulch on the driveway could make the wheel 'jump' slightly enough to make the reading off by a half inch. In any case, it would certainly suffice for measuring just about anything where one would be using a measuring wheel rather than another device capable of greater precision.

        Inexpensive & does the job
        Not sure why they went with 2 wheels instead of 1, but it's still the same, reliable measure. Don't let it get wet!

          Just what I needed.
          It's difficult for me to bend over and every senior should have one if you do any area measuring.

          Very inaccurate, different readings every time
          I tried one in the store and measured the same distance (10') several times and got varying readings by over 6". I figured the first one had problems so I made the mistake of purchasing an identical one.(without checking it) Got it home and did 10 identical runs of an exact 7' length. 2 out of the 10 times I actually got a 7' measurement, 6 times I got a measurement of 7' 3" to 7' 6", and the other 2 measurements were over 6" off. Each test was done using the exact same starting and stopping method of the measurement. Trying to measure a 30' length? Do the math to figure the major inaccuracy of this product. (I'm sure there must be a "Made in China" label somewhere I didn't see). Please don't waste your money on this model. I wouldn't recommend the next level up of the Lufkin either as it uses the same counter mechanism. I can get a more accurate measurement stepping off with my feet since my foot with shoe is exactly 1'. Oh yeah, I just noticed I was wrong - There is a "Made in Taiwan" label
