GeoMeasure Wood-Fibreglass Tripod
Rugged and Heavy-Duty
The GeoMeasure Wood Fibreglass tripod is one of our beefiest tripods. Weighting in at just under 15 lbs, there is no need to worry about this tripod shifting on you as you work. Once set this tripod is not going anywhere.
The central pillar of the legs are made of wood, and the two supporting dowels are made of fibreglass. This means that this tripod will stand up to years of abuse on the worksite. There is no need to worry about one part of the leg cracking or breaking rendering the entire tripod useless. There are three separate parts to each leg, meaning that the tripod is still usable even one portion is damaged.
The wood-fibreglass tripod is our recommended choice for those looking for a tripod for a total station or robotic total station. The additional weight over fibreglass and aluminum tripods ensure that the tripod stays firmly rooted in place.
Each leg also features two different locking mechanisms. At the top of each leg there are quick clamps, that can be easily adjusted. Simply lift the handle and pull the leg of the tripod out. To tighten simply push the handle down, and the legs will remain in place. To ensure that once the proper position has been set that the tripod does not move, at the bottom of each leg is a screw clamp. No matter the conditions, as long as the tripod is set correctly, you won’t need to worry about your equipment shifting.
Each leg features a large step in order to help push your tripod leg into the ground better securing it. This makes it easier to set the tripod without having to push on awkward angles, or put your equipment at risk. The feet also feature a metal point that is 1 1/2″ long. There is no need to worry about the tripod slipping or shifting while you are working. This is the tripod that will keep you equipment secure.
With the triangular flat head and the 5/8″ screw, you can fit just about any equipment to this tripod. Whether you need to work with a GNSS base, a total station or a robotic total station, this tripod can work with your gear. All of our GeoMeasure GPS, Accessories, Total Stations as well as Hemisphere GNSS and CHCNAV receivers are compatible with this tripod.
For easy carrying, the tripod features a carry strap, as well as a strap to keep the legs of the tripod closed. There is no need to awkwardly shuffle around while you try to keep the tripods legs closed, or having to lug the tripod around on your shoulder. The convenient carrying strap means that you can simply throw the strap over your shoulder while keeping your arms and hands free.
