Frequently Asked Questions

What is a rover rod?

A rover rod is a surveying instrument that’s used to extend a GPS rover’s range. It can also be used to provide a prism pole or a ranging rod with additional support.

How do I plumb a rover rod?

If your rover rod comes with a bubble vial, make sure that the vial’s screws are secure enough. Then, plumb the rod until the bubble stays at the center. To make sure that your rover rod is plumb, you can use a mounted plumb bob, a total station, or other optical instruments as your reference.

What should I look for when buying a GPS rover rod?

When buying a GPS rover rod, you have to get one that’s lightweight and durable, like a carbon fiber rod—the most common type of rover rod. It’s also best to get one that has an extendable feature for a longer rover working range and ease of storage.

What are the best rover rod brands?

There are many brands out there that make top-quality rover rods, but a few worth mentioning are Dutch Hill and Northwest Instrument, which are available here on Engineer Warehouse.

Rover Rods

Setting up targets for electronic distance measuring instruments cannot simply be done without prism poles. On the other hand, ranging rods help in ranging over straight lines or placing survey markers. Although prism poles and ranging rods are designed to be stable, it’s best to provide them with additional support, especially when they are used in tough field conditions. In fact, stabilizing them can result in improved accuracy and convenience when surveying. The most versatile yet stable support for prism poles and ranging rods is a rover rod. 

Because ranging rods primarily serve as a support for other equipment, they are made of highly durable materials, such as carbon fiber. Despite the fact that they are sturdy enough to endure harsh elements, they weigh just enough to be easily transported. They also feature molded grips for added comfort whenever they have to be held or carried. To improve the visibility as well as the working ranges of surveying instruments, rover rods can add about 2 meters to their heights. On top of that, they feature graduations for easy reading and integrated vials for leveled setups and accurate measurements
