From the iOptron Tri-Pier spec page:
Uneven Ground Range = 3.35" (85 mm)
If you need more, use patio or cinder blocks

There is no problem adjusting for uneven ground. My patio fall away for water drainage so the tri-pier must be adjusted to level the mount. I use a couple of 1" scrap pieces of wood on two legs. This makes leveling much easier. This leaves just a small amount to adjust on one leg. Cytan is right. It's not exactly an eagle but I really like it. It really makes the mount that much more rigid.
Edit: I bought mine used so that much better 😁.

I've got the iOptron Tri-Pier and it's never been an issue. In the rare case I run out of range in the individual leg adjustments, I just go grab a big flat rock, or paver, or whatever is handy and get a better starting point that way.
