First off, I really appreciate any help you guys can give me. New surveyor. This has to do with help about purchasing a robotic total station package. I mean the whole setup. If anyone has been in the same situation as us, and has been pleased with the purchase, please let me know..We are a very small surveying company. Our business has been focused mainly on residential, commercal, and topo jobs. I'd say 95% residential. Needless to say, business has been SLOW.
My question is: does anyone have any advice for a newbie for a total station package that wont cost an arm and leg? Used is fine also. We have an old school hp48 with tds (our favorite), trimble tsc2 (w/ gps r8), and carlson data collectors. We really don't want a heavy car battery to lug around either, since we might be down to 1 man crews. So... for small residential surveys, does anyone have any ideas for me? I REALLY appreciate any help you guys may have for me.
Thanks again, Mike
