If you need to take measurements over a large area, this wheel is ideal. Easy to assemble, light-weight with a carrying case so if you are walking miles to the site, it is easy to carry with other things like drawings and files etc. It has an easy to read display and simple to operate.

This wheel is cheap - but in the wrong sense. Rarely clicks over to units above single metres and even then records same distance differently each time

Not the best Measuring Wheel
Very cheap and suitable for my purposes but a flimsy version and would not suit anyone who needs to use it every day.
The calibration is not exact and if you use it too quickly the numbers can slip so that the reading is out, i.e. the two sometimes jumps over too early so that in one case I had walked 18 metres and the read out gave 28m so I had to re check on a couple of runs. But at a quarter of the cost of best quality types, it was ok for me.

I found the wheel to be good in operation, the other reviewer must have got a lemon ! The only thing I find awkward is the stand, a bit fiddly, but for the price its great value for money. The mechanism works fine & zero's well. I also checked the accuracy & was surprised how good it was. If you want a wheel with a better stand, buy a 'Stanley' wheel !
