The Davis Model 6463 AeroCone Rain Collector is a tipping bucket rain gauge designed to meet the guidelines of the World Meteorological Organization. With the 6463 Davis rain gauge, rain enters the collector cone, passes through a debris-filtering screen, and collects in one chamber of the tipping bucket. The bucket tips when it has collected an amount of water equal to the increment in which the collector measures (0.01"). As the bucket tips, it causes a switch closure and brings the second tipping bucket chamber into position. The rain water drains out through the screened drains in the base of the Davis AeroCone rain collector.

The body and base of the Davis AeroCone rain collector are constructed with tough, UV resistant plastic. The tipping bucket pivots on bearings that minimize friction and wear. Stainless steel adjustment screws under each chamber of the tipping bucket allow you to fine-tune the calibration. Mounting holes are predrilled in the base and a built-in leveling trough aids in installation. A Bird Spike kit is included with the 6463 Davis rain gauge.

Davis Rain Gauge December 8, 2013
Reviewer: Don Kemmeter from Rhinelander,, WI United States  
As far as I know it should be OK but I can't be positive until I mount it and it rains.  Can you get another display unit that shows the amount of rain collected? You might have to substitute a different one than the original.
