Leica TS16 1″ R500 New or Used?
I have been looking for a TS16 Robot and found used one from an overseas Authorised Leica Dealer.
The dealer rates the Gun as Excellant. Manufactured 2018, Fully serviced and calibrated, 6 months parts and labour warrenty. Price US$26,640 plus import tax. TS16 comes with RH17 Bluetooth Handle, Power Search, GRZ4 360?ø Prism, Captivate Measure & Stakeout and other accessories, CS20 with Captivate and accessories.
I can purchase a new TS16 1″ R500 from the local Leica dealer for US$ 41,780 with CS20 and all the accessries included. The new TS16 comes with Auto Height and ATRPlus. One year warrenry supplied.
Both guns don’t come with imaging option. I’l be able to get it with the new TS16 and R500 can be upgraded to R1000 if needed.
I have in mind to get a AP20 Autopole in future for this set.
What would you do in this scenario? Go for a New one or the used one?
Does the imaging feature usefull in TS16?
What reflectorless range you prefer? R500 or R1000?
Please educate me as I’am new to Leica Robots.
My intended use is cadastral, Construction setouts and Topographic (Feature & Level).
Thanks in advance.
