Whether you call them tripods or ‘legs’, these accessories are a much needed addition to any surveyor or construction professional’s arsenal. They provide a level base to easily mount and securely hold your instrument. Tiger Supplies offers a wide selection of surveyor tripods and construction tripods for use with total stations, optical levels, digital levels and laser levels. Even better, most tripods have a universal thread so you only need one. But be sure it’s a good one. Whether you're choosing one manufactured by Topcon, Nedo, Pacific Laser System, or any of our other specialty brands.
Types of Tripods
There are a number of important factors to keep in mind when choosing a surveyor's or a laser level tripod. Consider whether you are working indoors or out, and just how heavy your instruments is. Wood is more susceptible to expanding and contracting with weather but is very durable and sturdy. Fiberglass is another highly durable alternative, while aluminum is a more lightweight option. When working indoors or on slippery surfaces, flat bottom surveyor tripods prevent slipping. Alternatively, you can steady your instrument on your pointed bottom surveyor tripod with a stabilizer or tripod star. Some tripods even have retractable feet or built in stabilizers!
Other features, such as color or locking mechanisms, are about personal preference. Some surveyor and laser level tripods come with multiple locking options. There are also various height options, flat or dome heads, elevating columns, and much more to choose from.
Surveyors are all about accuracy. Leveling your total station, GPS antenna or other surveying instrument using a tripod to achieve that goal. For work with specialized equipment you need a stable base. Choose from wood, fiberglass, or composite tripods. All surveyor tripods provide excellent support and come with carrying straps for easy transport around the job site.
