    The new Vertex 5, an ultrasound instrument system is a true 'work horse' that will hand you accurate and reliable measurement results in most forest terrains and conditions. This is also the best Haglöf selling instrument and the professional foresters' preference for accurate height, distance and horizontal distance measuring. 

    - Ultrasound distance measuring - great accuracy and proven reliability in the forest.
    - Works in dense vegetation.
    - Audible beep signal for measuring results.
    - Low battery consumption.
    - Reference users worldwide.
    - BAF function.

    Fast and accurate two-point measurement with the Vertex 5 system.

    Fasten the T3 transponder to the tree at any height, walk a distance of your choice and measure as many heights on each object as you wish, with the four last measured heights shown in the display.

    1. Aim at the transponder, press the button and read the distance to the object.
    2. Aim to the height you want to measure, press the button and read the height on the Vertex instrument display.


    Measure slope in the terrain and have it presented to you in degrees, grads and percentage.

    Plot Radius

    In sample plot inventory work it is important to use the correct radius measurement.The ultrasound method is very suitable for this application.

    BAF- Basal Area Factors

    Working with factor gauge or prisms can be difficult when some trees cover others in the forest. Poor sighting can prevent a correct diameter measuring.

    With the Vertex 5 built in BAF function, the minimum tree diameter for trees to be included in the plot can be featured.

    0.5, 1 to 9 (m2/ha) or 5, 10, 50 (ft2/acre).  Vertex 5 can be used in dense vegetation and undergrowth.


    Communicate with IR or Bluetooth. Transfer values to the MD II or DP II calipers, or other handheld units with HAGLOF data format.
