Buy Dumpy Levels Online Australia


Optical dumpy levels, or auto levels, are an older technology but they are still important levelling tools. They are used to establish or checkpoints in the same optical plane. They are often used for surveying and building to transfer, measure or set horizontal levels.

A dumpy level consists of a telescope mounted on a tripod. Since a levelling rod or staff is also required, it needs two people to operate, one to hold the rod and another look through the scope and read off heights from a crosshair in the viewfinder.

Very old dumpy levels were manually levelling using a spirit level.  These required more operator skill to get accurate readings.  All RedBack models are automatically self-levelling. Once the operator has roughly adjusted the bubble vial into the auto levelling range, the system will self-level. It’s then simply a matter of looking through the scope at the staff being held by the second person and reading of the level. Auto levels are much easier to use and quicker to set up.

These levels can be used to determine:

  • The height of a particular point
  • If you need to dig further or backfill
  • Differences in heights between points
  • Contours of a land profile
  • Data for road cross-sections
  • Volume for earthworks
  • Levelling surfaces
  • Setting inclined surfaces

A RedBack dumpy level is built to withstand anything the worksite can throw at it and comes with a two-year manufacturers warranty. It features fine rotation adjustment, distance estimation, angle estimation and adjustable eyepiece for the crosshair.
