1. Wheel size
Measuring wheels are designed to give you a distance estimate while you walk, and for measuring curved surfaces. The wheel size you choose will depend on the terrain you"re measuring. MG210MCS (30 CM / 12 Inch / 2 Wheels)Or MG12FIS (30 CM / 12 Inch / 1 Wheel) diameter wheels are ideal for indoor jobs, for decorators and painters, for instance. For building contractors or landscapers, a MG12FIS (30 CM / 12 Inch / 1 Wheel) wheel would be the wheel of choice. For big outdoor jobs with rough terrain, like fencing, irrigation, or laying concrete and asphalt, you"ll need a MG10MCM (50 CM / 19 Inch / 1 Wheel) wheel.
The wheel"s construction is vital to its accuracy and longevity. Professional measuring wheels are usually constructed from either metal or durable polymers, with rubber tires. UPGREEN has chosen to use a heavy-duty polymer composite on all its Measuring Wheels, because of its proven warp-resistance over time, and its lightweight properties. Combined with an adjustable telescopic handle, this makes UPGREEN "s wheels highly portable, easy to store, and comfortable to use. UPGREEN has also chosen a highly visible bright red for its wheel color, so it stands out on busy jobsites or in traffic. A convenient kick-stand is featured on all models.
3. Measuring counter
Measuring counters are mostly mechanical, although some wheels on the market offer a digital readout. UPGREEN offers a 5-digit gear-driven counter that subtracts when you roll it backwards, with a simple reset button. UPGREEN "s high-quality digital counters won"t suddenly disappoint in the middle of a job. Available in metric or imperial models, they measure up to 9999.9 (or 99999) in either feet or meters.
Paint Marking Measuring Wheels
Road and utilities crews have a unique situation when it comes to selecting a measuring wheel.
Working near the road can be dangerous and minimal time should be spent on the road side near dangerous traffic conditions.
Most workers using a distance measuring wheel while marking locations with spray paint
(aka "marking paint", or "upside down marking paint").
The user has the measuring wheel in one hand and the paint in the other.
So in order to mark a specific point you either have to bend down and apply the paint or carry a separate bulky inverted spray wand.
In both cases your hands are filled with no way to write down any notes, other than to lay one of the items in your hand down.
And, your finger can get very tired spraying paint all day.
Hence, paint marking measuring wheels like Upgreen Measure wheel is a great solution to these problems.
