Looking for a rotary laser
« on: September 07, 2017, 08:08 PM »
I just started a kitchen remodel job where the customer added installing crown in the living room.  Kicker is the room is 35x28 with a ~13' ceiling. Historic huge 1880's home converted to condos in the '80's.  Two piece and I have some 12' high window trims I need to plan around.

A rotary laser is going to be a must I think and plenty of room in the budget for one.    I have two hilti three axis line lasers but never purchased a rotary.

Any good suggestions?  I will also be using this for outdoor site work at some point. Im reading green is the new IN color. Is it worth the extra money?  I have purchased enough Hilti hammer drills, jackhammers and concrete anchoring products to know they make good stuff just not sure I want to drop $1600 on this.

Anybody have opinions on other companies?  The new dewalt looks cool just not sure I want to buy one of their first production runs.

DeWalt has been selling rotary lasers for a few years now, so they have some history with them.

I have a Bosch myself and it works OK for my needs. It's a red laser and I don't use it outside.
Has a remote control and target and came in a blow-molded case in which everything snaps into
its storage space and it travels well. I've had it about 4 years now and don't use it too often, maybe
once a month on average. It's still working like new but then it is basically new since it has not been
used that much.
It's a table saw, do you know where your fingers are?

I've had PLS lasers since they came out and they work great.  I mostly use mine for installing automatic sliding door entrances.  Also have the Bosch GL3 and like it a lot, nice thing about the Bosch is that you can lock the vertical line for displaying angles.
