New level time. Any reccomendations? Want something simple enough not got to be fixed on machine or anything just for general setting out. Which is best value?
sounds very reasonable for that ...I got a good deal on a Fluke/PLS HV2 unit from Trade Survey Direct. Really great service from them actually, so much so that the rep is coming out FOC to to show us all the features of the laser and a Leica Utilifinder that we also bought from them and make sure we are happy with it.
Can level over 300m, set slopes, plumb walls and even set square with it. None of the others I was looking at in the same price bracket (think it was about £6/700) could do that
Really pleased with it.
Nice to see yet another manufacturer/dealer on here ... and being circumspect in their responses too ... good on you Mark ... dare say you'll get a few responsesHi Jimoz,
I will be very careful that this reply does not sound like a spam promotion...
Fred kindly posted a link to our site above. We solely specialise in Laser Levels and have a number of either mid-range (Fukuda) or premium brand rotary lasers (Spectra Precision),for horizontal groundworks aimed to meet varying customer budgets. Most have the ability to set slopes and gradients in both the X & Y axis either out of the box or in the case of Spectra using optional remote controls.
All our kits include a tripod and staff as standard but the packages can be easily customized to remove them from the kit. So you would just need the Laser and Detector.
If anyone else has any questions or need any advice (bearing in mind my replies cannot appear as being spam or an advertising promotion) I am happy to help.
Laser Levels Online
Hi,Hi Mark @Laser Levels Online , thanks for the reply. Didn't come across as spam. I see your other thread and the laser the other member bought is a good deal. Quite a functional set up with the receiver. I'm wondering if I should of had the same!
Last week I went mad on eBay one night and bought a leica 200. I thought it was a good deal at the time but not so sure now. Was spelt wrong, both laser and the brand so I thought nobody else was looking at it as they seem to be fetching more. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lecia-rugby-200-Lazar-site-level-/133109571764?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&nma=true&si=Js43o3CnNLdccjOpD1tSdXSj1eE%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc
Bit dubious with eBay on this kind of stuff but atleast I can test to see if it's within tolerance. Also looks to be able to set out a 90 deg corner which is bonus for me. Ill see if I can test the calibration tomorrow then let you know if I dropped a bollock!
Yeah, I would definitely recommend getting the local firm to just double-check the calibration on a rig and then you will know for sure.Thanks for advice mark had a play this morning seems to be in calibration. Like you say bit of a lottery as regards to whether it's any good and of course wouldn't want to be buying nicked gear. Obviously you assume nicked gear wouldn't be on auction sites bit different to buying off the local smackhead. You're right about the 90 deg function seems a bit long winded but again have had a bit of a play this morning and maybe I'll get the hang of it. With regards to grade have pegged the levels for a drain this morning I just find it easier to adjust height on stick for the distance knowing that 12.5mm per m is 1:80. What a luddite eh!
Local firm will check over and calibrate for 45 so thought I'd drop it in to them to be 100%. Will look out for battery
Really pleased that it all worked out.Got it calibrated 45 plus vat. New staff holder clamp 30 plus vat.
Using it today that 90 deg function is wicked. Don't get me wrong the multiple line lasers which throw out a 90 are brilliant but this was fine for me. Throws a red dot out at 90 deg and not to hard to spot in daylight. Checked it with 3,4,5 to see if accurate bang on.
Great to talk with you Simon earlier in the week.Just taken delivery of a spectra precision package and magnetic receiver kit from Mark.
Very impressive service and happy to spend time on the phone trying to explain the operation of various functions over the phone ,no easy task considering my total lack of understanding regarding anything electronic with more than two buttons.
With a bit of luck I will remember how to use it Monday.
Highly recommend a call if you are in the market for a laser.
