Over all truly a great product , for the get it and go measurement project. I have been using it for landscape design and irrigation projects. Little in easy at first do to the collapsible handle but you will get used to it and it will do the job, that’s the only reason I didn’t give it five stars. But it’s a great affordable buy. And does the job.
Very happy with this. I was wondering how it would do off pavement since the wheels are smaller compared to more expensive units. The tires are hard with a grip layer and the unit has enough clearance to roll just fine on a lawn and in mulch--no problems there.
It has a rotary ticker that tracks feet and inches. It can run backward so you can subtract off a length if you wished.
It is accurate. I measured against a 25' tape and it was exactly on target.
The unit is very light and the telescoping handle make for ultra compact storage. Handle extends from approximately 2' up to 3'6" (total unit length).
The reset button is next to the ticker and small, which means you have to pick it up or bend down to reset it. Can't really do it with a foot. Not a big deal but that is the only thing that could be improved.
This is a light, compact, and easy to use measuring wheel. A few things I did not like. One the wheel is difficult to use in tall grass like fescue. The built in kickstand at the bottom is a little on the small side. So you really have to balance the wheel on a flat smooth surface before letting go of the handle. If not it will tip over easily. It seems to be accurate enough for measuring a yard. For what it is it worked great. The aluminum handle collapses down easily to about 2 feet tall.
