What Good Is A Measuring Wheel?

Measuring wheels are used to get accurate readings for a wide range of applications, including laying concrete flooring, measuring square footage for real estate sales, even fence building. Why spend the extra money on a measuring wheel instead of measuring tape? For starters, a measuring wheel is a one-person operation. If you have a wide area to measure such as a driveway or foundation, you can use the wheel to quickly and accurately get the measurements. More advanced measuring wheels come with built-in calculators that can computer volume and area dimensions. These models often store a certain number of readings in many cases, something a measuring tape definitely can't do.
