The Forestry Pro is the enhanced model of the Forestry 550 Laser Rangefinder. This widely used and praised forestry industry specific laser rangefinder is now equipped with three-point measurement capability to meet market demands. This newly added function enables a user to obtain the height of a tree even when the top or base of a tree is blocked by branches or bushes, preventing the use of conventional separation measurement where the laser beam is required to reach those points.
Measurement unit (m/yd./ft.)
Actual (linear) Distance
Measurement example (Three-point measurement: height between two points)
When three-point measurement is achieved, the height between points 2 and 3 is displayed on the internal LCD with Hor Hgt+Hgt2 (solid), and Hgt(2) and Ang(2) are shown on the external LCD. Points 2 and 3 can be reversed.
Measurement example (two-point height measurement)
When the measurement is successful, you see the height from the base to the top displayed on the internal LCD with Hgt + Hgt2 (solid).
For more information, refer to the external LCD.
“Base” and “Top” can be switched.
In addition to actual distance, horizontal distance, height, angle and vertical separation (difference in height between two targets) measurement functions, three-point measurement (height between two points) is available
The results are displayed on both internal and external LCD panels. The external panel displays all results simultaneously.
Two measurement modes (Target Priority Switch System) are available:
First Target Priority Mode displays the range to the nearest target taken from multiple results obtained with a single measurement.
Distant Target Priority Mode displays the range to the farthest target taken from multiple results obtained with a single measurement – especially useful for forestry and hunting.
High-quality 6x monocular with multilayer coating produces bright images.
Waterproof (up to 1 meter for 10 minutes) but not for underwater usage. The battery chamber is water resistant.
High-eyepoint design allows easy viewing even with eyeglasses.
Capable of measuring different distances in succession, for up to 20 seconds, when the button is held down.
Measurement range: 10-500 m/11-550 yd./33-999 ft.
Display in feet as well as metres and yards is available with this model.
