Call for Product


Leica Geosystems offers you a large selection of high-value tripods for all survey instruments and applications. The right tripod choice is decisive if the indicated accuracy of an instrument is to be reached. The classification “heavy duty” and “light duty” is widely based on ISO Norm 12858-2. They differ through the stability requirements and instrument weight.

The most important criterion for a good tripod is its stability, quite explicitly, the torsional rigidity. With that, a very valuable, but not the only, argument for the original tripod from Leica Geosystems has been named. Other substantial benefits are the height stability under load and the minimal horizontal drift. Also not to be underestimated are advantages such as long life, optimal vibration dampening, water resistance, outstanding behaviour in solar radiation and their weight in relation to load-bearing capacity.

The stability of the original

Leica Geosystems tripods are manufactured solely from wood or aluminium. Wood, especially the beech and birch used by Leica Geosystems, offers the best stability values, measured on vertical movement and horizontal drift over time. Wood also exhibits optimal vibration characteristics and therefore delivers
