Measuring long tracts of land wouldn't be possible without measuring wheels. They offer quick, easy and accurate measurements. When you need to make a fast measurement and don't need the complete accuracy of surveyor's tape, a measuring wheel will get the job done. Sears has a wide variety of wheels ranging from large to small, and from single- to dual-wheeled. Whether you only need to measure up to 1,000 feet or up to 99,000 feet, there is a land surveying measuring tool to help you make simple and reliable measurements.
Measure long distances with measuring wheels
Measuring large spaces, inside or out, is the first step of any landscaping or home renovation project. You have to know exactly how much room you're dealing with before beginning. This is easy with a measuring wheel that uses the diameter of the wheel and number of rotations to provide broadly accurate measurements of distance. In choosing your measuring wheel, you'll want to consider what you measure and the general distances you'll need. Sears has variety of different wheels to help you measure out any landscaping or construction job.
The most common use for measuring wheels is in surveying land. If you're going to have to measure large areas, you'll want to look at buying a measuring wheel that is 14 to 15 inches in diameter. They'll allow you to cover more distance quicker. The maximum distance of continuous measurement that they can make is close to 100,000 feet. They're a great addition to your surveying tool set.
If you're going to be using your measuring wheel for smaller jobs indoors, you'll want to look at smaller diameter wheels. Our dual wheel options are great for working indoors. They use two small wheels that will give you more stability without sacrificing maneuverability. Usually these will help you get a very accurate estimate when it comes to laying carpeting and other floor coverings. These wheels have shorter measuring maximums, but if you're only working indoors, that won't be much of a hindrance. It's best to get these measurements prior to picking out garage flooring so you know can fit your space best.
There are both analog and digital measuring wheels available. If you're doing a lot of professional work, digital wheels are the way to go. They allow you to take different measurements in different units. Analog models, although just as accurate, will typically only allow you to take measurements in one measuring unit. One thing you need to keep in mind when using a measuring wheel is that they're made for smooth, flat surfaces. If the space you're measuring is rough, or has a bit of debris to get around, your measurement will not be entirely accurate. Make sure you take these factors into account as you make your measurement. If you need absolute accuracy you should look into getting yourself a line reel, which will give you more precise measurements.
Using a measuring wheel will give you the figures you need to start any project. Sears has the wheels you need to start your project off right.
