its pretty difficult to compare total stations by manufacturer alone.. are you using this new Linertec? Are you considering buying one? Need a manual?
I'm just curious. They are being sold here in Brazil recently, representatives of PENTAX. I know it's dificel make the comparison. I wonder if the Topcon and Sokkia, operators are satisfied with LINERTEC. And what other brand like it is.
Hello everyone there.
I bought one, model LTS-205N.
I've been using it for about two months in not hard conditions, just surveying small urban parcels and some rural properties.
What I have to tell by now?
1 - This week I sent it to local support - It was not operating well, its level wasn't accurate, it's compensator seems not to be good. Maybe its defective, maybe it just isn't a good machine. It's early to tell you.
- I particularly am so careful with the equipment, I am suspicious minded the quality of the equipment is not that good.
2 - The Linertec Online Customer Support: It seems not to exist once you send them messages and after months it returns nothing, just the automated message telling you it was received, not even describing they will answer you.
- April, 2018: I sent a message asking for the operators manual to operate a rented Linertec LTS-205N. The automated message indicated it war the message #44 they received. - Result? No answer.
-July, 2018: today I sent other, telling about the problems I'm facing and suggesting them to get it back to certify it do not happen with others, as it's a new brand on the market.
I hope it helps others to know more about Linertec Total Stations and if you have been using this brand, please, let your opinion here.
Thank you! Regards.
