    Did some searching for a web site that offer good quality distance measuring wheels. The cheapest I have found is 99 bucks.. Anyone know of a place where I can get a good one for less?
    Thanks in advance

    Home Depot or Lowes. I paid about 70 bucks for mine at a surveying and engineering supply store, and now I see them for about 50.
  3. I got mine at Lowe's. If I remember right it was under $50. Works great, has a collapsable handle so it fits in the tool box easier.

    If your not going to use it a whole lot, like me, go to Lowes and buy the el-cheapo model. It has a small wheel which isn't real great across grass but for measuring beds and such it works fine. Mine was $29.95!!!!!!!

    Thanks all. Amazing how much time you can spend in a Lowes and Home Depot and NOT see something!. Appreciate the links also will check them out.

    I purchased the big-wheel at TSC its been several yrs, but i think it was around 60 dollars. Works fine and its quick. But like Homer says if you don't use them much a cheapie is fine. Marks Mowing Service

    Harbor freight tools has the small weel one ,it's $12.00. Works O.K. I have a big one in my work truck and keep the little one in my pickup, that way when people ask for an estimate I always have a weel.
