the one at home depot works great make sure you get one with a 12'' wheel so you can get through tall grass or ruff turf

Engineering supply companies also have wheels. I got one at SESCO in Fairfax. And do get one with the 12&quot; wheel. One type even has a built in calculator.<p>----------<br>Lanelle<br>

might get one from lesco if they are in your area. they cost a little bit more but they seem to be indistructable. might run around $ 50.00

Wheel good for precise measurements but for rough ground, toroguy steps ...<p>Mark a distance of about 100 feet. Pace off normal pace, naturally, count paces, divide paces into 100 feet = your average pace. If you're draggin butt that day, try it a few times. Wheel is better on smaller lineal distances like shrub beds, when you are buying sod & materials, don't want left overs.<p>A-1<br>Nilsson Associates<br>Green Industry Consultants
