Q1: How is the measuring wheel measured?
A1: By pressing the reset button of the measuring wheel counter, then starting measuring, the count increases when moving forward and decreases when moving backward, and finally the distance can be obtained by the number of revolutions of the wheel. The mechanical distance-measuring wheel is designed with high quality and precision, small, light, and durable, and is widely used for measuring and evaluating construction work such as road works, pipeline laying works, wire and cable works, etc.
Q2: What is the measuring wheel used for?
A2: The measuring wheel is mainly used for land surveying and mapping, road construction, cable laying, and course marking. It can also be used for the construction measurement of landscape and golf courses, the measurement of traffic accident distance and location, and the measurement of farmland construction management, etc.
Q3: What is a measuring wheel?
A3: A measuring wheel also known as a surveyor's wheel, click wheel, odometer, or trundle wheel – is a tool used to measure distances. Measuring wheels have a counting mechanism that counts the number of rotations and uses the circumference of the wheel to calculate the distance covered.
Tips: What sizes of distance measuring wheels are available?
sisco has distance-measuring wheels in 5", 6", and 12". The small wheels are compact and easy to store. They work well for indoor flooring and allow you to get close to the wall. For each yard or meter you measure, they will rotate more times than a larger wheel, which means the tread will wear more. As the tread wears, it will become less accurate if used on rough surfaces. For outdoor use, it is usually better to use larger wheels. They will spin more slowly, wear less, and will cut through rough surfaces better.
