    • Self-Leveling Cross-Line Laser


      Can the horizontal laser line be projected higher or lower than the height that the unit is sitting on the tripod. In other words, can I shoot a horizontal line 6" off of the floor or 12" from the ceiling with the unit sitting 4' off of the ground on it's tripod?

        According to Bosch technical team, they do not offer a laser with the desired function. The laser beam will just project on the service and you cannot adjust the beam.

        Yes, but the laser would need to be mounted so it is facing down

    New Vs. Reconditioned

    What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

    Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
    • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
    • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
    • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
