  2. Good Afternoon, The ECII-D is a very popular, cost effective and simple to use device for measuring heights. The distance to the object can also be calculated using trigonometry. This is done by placing a mark on the object 2metres from ground level. You then step back from the object until you can see the 2 metre mark and the top height. Press the ‘ON’ button twice quickly so that ‘HGT’ appears in the display. Then point the ECII-D at the 2 metre mark and press the ‘ON’ button until you hear a short signal after which you aim at the base of the object & press ‘ON’ again – after the signal the distance to the object will be briefly displayed to confirm that the distance has been calculated. Finally point at the top of the object and press ‘ON’ again until you hear the signal – the total height from the base to the top will then be displayed. If you wish to measure horizontal distances such as crown spreads a laser device is required with an in-built digital compass. We are unaware of any such devices for less than £500 – indeed they would be in the region of £1500-£1700 (ex vat) with this type of functionality (ie the Haglof Laser Geo which is the most highly specified hand held laser device currently available). There are many measurement devices on the market but not all of them are suitable for outdoor use – particularly in bright sunlight – so you have to be careful that what you choose will do what you want. All of the measurement devices offered by Sorbus are well proven for use outdoors. If in doubt ask for a demonstration or speak to an independent user to confirm functionality. Attached is some general info on the rest of the Haglof range. Should you wish to discuss the functionality of any of our range in more depth please don't hesitate to call or drop us an email [email protected] Kind regards Sorbus International Ltd A4 - HAGLOF - Double sided.pdf

  15. Hi Lee The basic MD300 microdrill does not have any form of recording drilling data. It is intended to be a rapid & cost effective method of quickly drilling trees/timber to detect decay/defects & residual wall thickness - which can be read off a 1:1 telescopic scale on the instrument. Thanks, Phil Wade - Sorbus International Limited
