I am looking to purchase the Radstar RS 300 or sun nuclear 1027. Do I need the thermal printer, or is that a waste of money?
Depends how you want to deliver the report. I have three RS300s (probably buying a fourth this year) and just download to a laptop on site and email the report. That way I can make a nice looking report with a bar graph, etc. The software downloads it as an excel file, so it’s easy to produce a PDF to email.
Ditto…I just download it to computer and attach the pdf to the report. Just FYI Menards sells an aluminum Johnson tripod that works great with the Radstars. Been using them for years.
