Within the protection of the rugged base, the wide-stance ball bearing center guarantees you smooth movement and superior alignment control. The level transit is optically lined up over a reference point by looking through an eyepiece and aligning the cross hairs over the point, assuring you of precise positioning every time. Recommended job range up to 400 feet; accuracy within 3/16 inch at 150 feet. Your purchase comes with a protective carrying case, sunshade, rain hood, objective lens cap, and instruction manual.

I wanted the best quality optical transit/level I could find, but at a low cost. Without going to automatic (self-leveling, etc.) -- I found this to be the best deal I could find. It's easy to setup and use. In particular the optical plumment is great for locating directly on top of benchmarks/stakes. I use mine for fence work, calculating areas, site work in restoring my barn, and mostly for outside plant grade/level work. For my use, it has been a great investment. I use it year round and have found the optics to be tolerant of severe weather extremes and easy to use in high or low light. I work by myself, and also found it easily portable (light) and quick to setup and take down.

As an engineer, I didn't have need of a highly accurate instrument, but wanted something more durable and accurate than that you'd find at Home Depot or Sears. This David White gun is durable (metal construction), is smooth turning and has a bright, easy to sight through scope. You'd pay twice this much at a surveyors' supply store for a transit of this calibre.

My only caveat is that on my scope, the internal focusing carriage was loose on arrival, but this was an easy fix.

All in all a good value for the money.

This transit is a less expensive alternative to the theodolite. It is extremely accurate at 200', but a little difficult to see a line at that distance. The optical plummet is worth the extra cost to get a more accurate reading. Unless you are doing multiple layouts on the same site where a total station or a theodolite is necessary, this transit should be all you need for laying out buildings, straightening steel buildings, fencing, or any other type of layouts
