Our most popular instrument because it can level(horizontal) and plumb (vertical). Two hundred foot range with an accuracy of 1/4" at 100 feet. Use it to level the ground establish pitch and then set your posts using the vertical arc. Brass leveling screws insure long life and fast easy set ups every time. Built in 15 minute horizontal circle allows you to set rough angles. Unit has a 1/2-20 thread so look at the 60-ALQC21 or buy it as a package with tripod and 8ft rod (06-808C).Comes in a hard-shell case and a one year warranty.

I was very satisfied with the CST/Berger 54-200BN transit level. The benchmark measurements I made showed that it agrees within 1% of tape measurements for stadia distance, and is well within 1% for typical angle measurements that I am likely to make. It serves my purposes well, and it only costs a fraction of "total-station" instruments, which may be better suited for land surveyors.
Unlike more expensive products, the CST/Berger 54-200BN provides only a measurement. For engineering calculations, you are on your own. I needed to consult a Surveying textbook to code the necessary calculations into an electronic worksheet. I think such a skill is within the capability of many mechanical engineers. This effort required about one week of work, but allows me to transcribe simple transit measurements from a field book into a worksheet. From there I get the calculations necessary for reliable contour plots.
There is a bit of difficulty setting the unit to level due to a rubber bumper for a stop in the leveling process rather than a solid metal stop, allowing the unit to have a small bit of play. The bubble level was also not calibrated from the factory, but a quick adjustment had it set easily.
I would definitely buy this unit again. It will serve its purpose well for my intended use.
