Trimble advertise the Trimble TSC7 as military-spec with rugged design. However, up until now, we’ve never had the opportunity to test this out. It’s therefore a big thank you to the KOREC customer who did this for us!
An experienced land surveyor, our customer was delighted to find himself furnished with a Trimble SX10 and TSC7 logger in his new job along with a new truck, all be it one that was still waiting for the back rack. At the end of a recent job, with rain falling and nowhere to place kit on the truck, the surveyor carefully balanced his TSC7 on the wheel, under the arch and out of the rain, whilst he loaded the remaining boxes.
Unfortunately, that’s where it stayed and the surveyor was unaware of this until he felt the truck wheel bump over an object on the ground.
The panicked surveyor immediately called his office to report the accident to a very understanding boss. KOREC was contacted and a next day TSC7 replacement arranged through the hire service. On closer inspection, the TSC7 screen, beneath the screen saver, was found to be undamaged and the unit was consequently dispatched to Germany for repairs where it was found to be fully functional apart from a cracked outer casing!
Our thanks to the customer for sharing this story of the TSC7’s rugged with photographic evidence.
