Our Most Popular Selling Grade Rod, the Crain SVR Surveyors Series Grade Rod.
The Crain Surveyors SVR Series is a very popular and well-built Fiberglass Surveying Grade / Level Rod, and is a recommended product by the EngineerSupply Product Team. We have not seen a higher quality or tougher grade rod than the Crain SVR Series.
The Crain SVR Series Leveling/Grade Rod incorporates many versatile design advantages not found in other leveling rods. The SVR Series features a newly redesigned locking mechanism that is tight and accurate, an unique shape, a special measuring scale, compatibility with laser levels and EDM systems. The SVR has a rectangular-oval shape, and flat on the front and back with round corners. This convenient shape prevents the scale from rolling, making observation much easier, and is easy on the hands. The rod is also water-proof, corrosion-resistant, and non-conductive.
In addition to being a leveling rod on the front, the SVR rod has a measuring scale on the back (with the exception of the dual-scaled rods) that allow the user to read overall height measurements at eye level, which is useful in making clearance and height measurements. Also on the back-side with the measuring scale, there are alternate 1' red and white markings that are suitable for stadia purposes.
Improved Locking Mechanism
The newly redesigned locking mechanism now features round buttons. Tight and accurate, the lock is specifically designed to resist jamming from sand and dirt.
Easy to disassemble
Simply press the lock buttons and pull the sections out. To further disassemble, a Phillips screwdriver is needed (screwdriver sold separately).
