An Aluminum Tripod that elevates to a height of almost 10ft. This crank-operated elevating tripod is ideal for laser scanners such as the Faro X 330 when combined with a 5/8" 3/8" adapter.

Make routine 3D laser scanning jobs easier with this extra heavy duty elevating tripod. The lightweight (yet sturdy) aluminum frame decreases the overall weight of a scanning set up while still providing extreme functionality.  If you find yourself needing bigger equipment, we have the perfect solution: our Jumbo Tripod for the Focus 3D and TX5. The aluminum telescope tripod has a 5/8 inch connection, but adding a 3/8 inch connection adapter allows the use of the tripod combined with the FARO Focus 3D or Trimble TX5.  Add a tripod dolly to your order to increase ease of use and function, allowing for seamless transportation between scans.

    Solid Tripod with Height Advantage

    Posted by Jarrod Carter on 13th Oct 2017

    We really needed a tripod that we could use to get our FARO scanner elevated enough to get good data from the inside lanes/median of freeways. With this tripod we could get the elevation without having to encroach on the travel lanes whatsoever. Naturally, closing down a lane to get access for measurements is optimal, but that is not always possible on busy freeways.

    The tripod functions very well and has withstood rugged use.

    Fantastic Out of the Box

    We received this tripod in advance of some work we will be performing in the near future where we knew we would need the extra elevation to ensure good data collection. We have not deployed the tripod in the field yet, but we are impressed with the construction an operation thus far.

    Best Sturdy Rugged Tripod

    Posted by Unknown on 5th Sep 2013

    We have a FARO Focus 3D laser scanner and we needed to do a scan project on a sky scraper. We were nervous that a gust of wind was going to blow the scanner right over so we needed a sturdy heavy duty tripod that can hold a gust in high altitude. The telescoping feature was a bonus. I highly recommend it.
