Has anybody used total stations of the South Surveying & Mapping Instruments Co.?
www.southinstrument.com/

Are they good? Do they work efficiently and without problems?
This Chinese company claims that is a very good choice, considering value for money.
A South total station (15cc accuracy, reflectorless) costs 2200 euros, while a Topcon (same capacity) 5500 euros, Sokkia 6100 euros and Leica over 7000 euros.

Please answer me, I am a new Land Surveyor form Greece, just staring my job, with limited financial resources!
Thanks

send me an e mail @ jim@surveyequipment.com and I will send you across reconditioned Leica Total Station prices, which in my opinion will be a far better option

Spend your money wisely. I have sold 2 in the states. No More what a piece with constant issues EDM and Quality. Go see the Leica Agency in Helena. I believe it is Metrica Agency.
