- Questions & Answers
Product QuestionsWhat is the weight capacity of the mount, can it be mounted on a Porta II tripod, and is there a pillar or pier extension for it. Thanks.Question by: Tim2 on Dec 29, 2014 2:23:00 PMThis answer is being revised based on an error that a customer recently pointed out to us.
This mount can support approximately 10-11 lbs on each side. The 65 lbs noted earlier is the capacity of the wooden tripod made for this head. There is no extension for this and it cannot be mounted on the Porta tripod.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Jul 29, 2015 5:44:00 PMQuestion by: Tom212 on Jan 19, 2015 11:57:19 PMYou would need an interface adapter as this mount fits tripods with 3/8"-16 threads (most high-end photographic tripods) and most surveyor tripods use 5/8"-11 thread screws. It may be possible to get a 3/8" attachment for your surveyor tripod from that tripod's manufacturer.Answer by: Chris (Admin) on Jan 20, 2015 9:36:23 AM
