Established Since 1986

Rotosure Measuring Wheel was founded in 1986 by Mr. Ronald Risi, whom at the time was successful in manufacturing a wide range of plastic wheels, for a number of applications such as toys, trolleys, carts, prams, BBQ’s to name a few, and it was from this success that inspired the challenge to re invent the trundle wheel “Measuring Wheel”.


It was at this point Rotosure “Rotary Measure” was born


Innovation that Revolutionized the Measuring Wheel

Rotosure started off with its first model comprising of a simple wheel and counter attached to a fork and handle. From this point several major features where added to the next model being the Rotosure 12" such as the Pistol Grip, Trigger Brake, Fold in half Knuckle, Carry Handel, Kick down Side Stand, Inline Balanced Movment,and most important of all, a precisely machined wheel that runs on ground steel roller bearings. It was these practical features that revolutionized the measuring wheel, and have been copied by most of our competitor today.
