A measuring wheel is a highly useful device aimed at measuring long distances when their estimates are needed in a rush. The wheels avoid the hassles that one encounters while using long measuring tapes. A counter on the wheel calculates the distance measured and gives you the right figure in the US or metric units.

“This is a study measuring wheel that I bought to replace a cheaper plastic-bodied one that broke. It is mostly metal and more durable. Like it a lot” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
9. Keson Measuring Wheel ($70.97)
This 3-foot measuring wheel has an enhanced pistol grip and a reset trigger. A counter resets the unit and has an integrated brake which automatically stops the unit to avoid adding random values. It has a center-line balance, and the unit folds up to half of its size for portability. The reset on the housing is reinforced to protect it when resetting the counter with your foot. The inbuilt kickstand allows the unit to stand on its own for hands-free working.
“I have used two other brands of wheels before this one, neither held up more than three months. This wheel lasted me a year, and I immediately ordered a replacement wheel when the counter on mine finally stopped working properly. I estimate for a paving company, so my wheel gets a ton of use and abuse. I just throw it on the back of my truck, and it rolls around with whatever else I may be carrying at the time. Sturdy construction, nice features (trigger stop and thumb reset are great), and very accurate measurements. The only downside to this model wheel is the glass covering the numbers tends to fog up; I used a knife to pop the glass out to eliminate the problem.
The bottom line- this $80 wheel blows away the $60 models I went through every three months, and it has all of the features you could want in a measuring wheel. Highly recommend and will continue to use as long as it is in production and the product quality remains as is.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.

“I bought this after educating myself on the various styles and costs with this wheel and manufacturer seeming to be in the “sweet spot”. of quality vs. price I received it in one day and from the moment I got it I realised it was top notch. It is very light at 1.5 lbs. But sturdy with a folding handle and stand that both seem to work well. Don’t know if the handle clip would hold up to hard use but, if your careful, it should. The wheel is on roller bearings and spins freely, and the counter is mechanical working both forward and backwards. The counter is encased in rubber, and the numbers are magnified for easy reading. I took it to a field we measure for a car show, and it flowed smoothly across the park grass. I recommend this for medium duty use and quality of design and construction. Unless you are using this for your profession, I don’t see why you would need to pay more.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
