I'm looking for a robot too, but thought I'd have to go to the 1200 series...
Good for you money bags... I don't have that kind of coin. 25K for a instrument/collector/radio set up is waaaaaaaaaay out of my leauge. I would rather keep my helper, probably will anyway, he cuts a lot of line and digs a lot of holes, and jumps a lot of fences, and I don't plan on hitting the road alone. I am not trying to replace my helper, just increase our productivity for a very small investment... but I am just a business minded surveyor that is not going in the hole or own a payment plan to get more efficient piece of equipment in a tough market. I am not a big gear guy, I am a smart gear guy... I can adapte to something proven and effective... our current convetional total station is not even refectorless., we touch it all with the glass.
"Solo suveying" is a two man operation ;) or it is for me... and my dude.
for he heads up BerK
