Made of sturdy materials, this Abney level is designed to withstand standard wear and tear. It has the standard design of an Abney level, with the rectangular base, viewfinder, and spirit level to guide you in getting the proper reading.
As with all Abney levels, the 780-00 is lightweight and small, making it easy to handle. It comes in a rugged pouch for protection when not in use. Both the pouch and the level itself come in a bright orange color making it easy to spot. And at just 5 1/8" long it fits easily into the palm of your hand.
This Abney level measures both minutes/seconds and degrees for slopes and grades. Its low price point is another advantage of this level. Combine that with its ease of use, quality, and portability, this Abney level is the perfect choice to take simple, quick measurements that do not require the use of a more complicated instrument, thereby eliminating the hassle that comes along with one.
