The Grass Height Prism Gauge is made from solid glass and stainless steel. It is designed to tell you the actual height of cut that the mower is cutting on the turfgrass area. By placing the specially designed prism directly on the golf green, tee, fairway or athletic field and looking through the instrument, you can determine the actual height of cut as well as the quality of cut and smoothness of the surface.
The Grass Height Prism Gauge features graduated measurement lines that are viewed through the solid glass prism that are superimposed on the turf allowing you to measure the actual height of the turfgrass and compare it with mower bench settings.
The "quality" of cut may also be inspected by comparing the turf over the viewing plane of the prism. Graduated lines are inscribed at 1/8, 1/10th and 1/16th of an inch as well as 1 mm intervals and measures grass up to 1 5/8 inches or 40 millimeters tall.
It is ideal for inspecting golf greens, cricket pitches, football/rugby pitches, grass tennis courts or any finely manicured place cutting height and surface smoothness is important. Prism is 8 1/2 x 5 x 3 inches in size.
Grass Height Prism Gauge includes solid glass prism mounted in secure stainless steel bracket with readings in millimeters and inches (1/16th - 1 5/8 inch) and (1 mm - 40 mm). Additionally the storage case pictured below is included.
