For sale is an excellent condition Oberwerk hardwood surveyor's tripod, very similar to the newer TR3 version that sells for $400.

I'm selling the tripod along with an Oberwerk 18" carbon fiber elevator center column (not geared) with a range of 18". The mounting plate at the top of the column has a standard 3/8-16 mounting bolt. This elevator column was an $85 accessory from Oberwerk; it is included free with this tripod.

Overall weight is 12 lbs 10 oz.
Lowest height (to top of mounting plate) with legs compact and elevator in low position: 42"
Highest height (to top of mounting plate) with legs fully extended and elevator extended: 83"

This is an extremely sturdy tripod, especially in its lower range. With legs fully retracted, the top plate can go from 42" up to 60" by extending the elevator. I doubt anyone will use it with legs and center column fully extended, but it will probably work for lighter loads.

Overall excellent condition, both mechanically and cosmetically, with some nicks and scuffs from normal usage.

Includes a built-in carrying strap that also keeps legs closed for transport. Has built-in center spreader bars, but no center plate (available separately from Oberwerk or elsewhere).

A great opportunity to own a beautiful hardwood tripod that is sturdy and versatile. Save hundreds over the new equivalent.

Tripod and CF elevator column for only $179 + $29 flat rate CONUS shipping via UPS. PayPap only (no fee).

I'll be glad to answer any questions you might have.
