    Awesome timesaving tool!
    PROS: ACCURATE!!! Lightweight. User friendly. Huge timesaver.

    CONS: Can be difficult to use outdoors without laser glasses. Sometimes has difficulty with metallic substrates and glossy finishes due to laser scatter (use a target in this case).

    I have purchased three of these for myself and my employees - they pay back the investment in time saved the first time you use it. Anything over 50' and outdoors you'll want to throw on a pair of laser glasses if you want to see the dot - not the most powerful. But, this thing is accurate to within 1/8" at 100', and 1/4" anything over that. The days of jacking around with a tape in the wind are over!

    I also use it when figuring what size of aerial lift to use. Just stand in your projected base area and shoot to your working height - takes 30 seconds.

    I sent two guys to layout dimensions for 15,000 square feet of cladding on a building. It took them a day and a half to bring me back 300+ dimensions using a boom lift.

    I have also used this personally in my own home measuring for trim and saved myself several hours with very quick and very accurate layout. It stores the last 20 dimensions with fairly easy recall - read the manual and play with it to figure it out.

    Good so far
    I've only had this for a week, but it appears to be everything I expected. The device is very configurable and is fairly intuitive(important for me as I seldom read instructions). It seems well made (rugged)Easy to slip into a pocket or nail pouch if necessary. The laser is brite enough to see in a well lit room, haven't tried it outside as of yet.After a week I would recommend this device.

    Good value
    Beam washes out in daylight on longer measurements. Several measurement functions - area, volume, determine angles or length of sloped surfaces. overall good value

    Ahhh, gotta love it.
    I do a lot of small projects, and it is always disturbing to go around furniture or having to move it, and takes more time; or even have someone to assist you; when using the measuring tape. Now I do most of the things myself and use my time where I really need it. It works great indoors, it can also be used outdoors but when the sun is really bright, you can't really see the laser, but there are some special glasses for that. All in all, it is a great working tool, that keeps productivity flowing, and makes life easier. This tool is easy to use and understand form a beginner to a pro. I personally love it, worth every cent.

    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 120 days.
