Trumeter 5063 Rail Track Measurer - Dual Reading
The dual-reading version of Trumeter's market leading rail wheel, the Trumeter 5063 Rail Track Measurer is an ultra heavy duty, professional-grade rail measuring wheel featuring both metric and imperial readings on two separate displays. It is the rail industry standard measuring wheel and a common sight on track throughout the UK and, indeed, the world.
Not to be confused with poor quality alternatives or those wheels that claim to accurately measure both road and rail, the Trumeter railway measuring wheel has been designed solely with the railway engineer's needs in mind. In fact, it was developed in conjunction with some of the UK's leading rail engineering firms and is purchased by primary rail contractors and their contractors for projects throughout the UK rail infrastructure.
Unlike the 5061, the 5063 is a dual reading track survey wheel. It comes with two separate counters, one placed directly above the other. The first measures in metric units (metres and decimetres) while the the second measures in imperial (yards). This combination makes this wheel the ideal tool for use on the British railway network with its mix of metric and imperial units.
Both displays use reliable analogue mechanisms which move as one - moving the wheel forward over the rail counts up, moving it backwards counts down.
The dual reading track measuring wheel from Trumeter has a solid steel frame and a steel wheel with flanges either side that keep it stable and firmly positioned on the rail head. The wheel itself has a rubber tyre which stops the wheel slipping on the rail whilst the handle is collapsible allowing the unit to be folded away and carried in the free carrying bag. Accuracy is guaranteed to ± 1% for all measurements.
