best laser levels11/20/15
There is info on the subject of laser levels in the knowlege base, but i am looking for latest and best that guys are using for cabinet installs. Thanks, Harold.
I just use a PLS 180. Simple and effective
I bought the guys a bunch of Bosch GLL 2-15 and have had no complaints
I think the Bosch GLL3-80 is a good option.
The GLL-3 adds another vertical line 90 degrees to the first.
thanks guys. bought the bosch with the pole and there was a 25.00 discount from bosch on amazon.
Can't go wrong with the Bosch in my opinion. I have the Bosch GLL 2-50 and it's been great I use it for setting cabinets and even hanging doors. Plus the magnetic base has strong magnets and I don't have to worry about slipping
We use the PLS 4. It is a great laser level and practical for every type of job we come across. We also have a Stabila rotary laser (05155) in combination with the tripod, but that takes up space and this is best for longer layouts and getting items set on elevation. Depending on your budget, i would go with the PLS 4 as a best bet. The stabila rotary was about 700 and the PLS 4 was 400.00 both are worth the expense, but PLS 4 would be my choice if i could only have one.
It looks like the PL4 does not have the two 90 degree planes feature.
That seems like that would be very handy for squaring up L shaped layouts? (IOW no more 3-4-5)
On the Woodweb the Bosch gets good reviews.
The Stabila is 1/3 more, I don't know if their quality applies to lasers, it may I just don't know.
The Hilti gets good reviews as well as the PLS, but the Bosch seems to get mentioned more.
Check out the PLS 180 - it's what we use 90% of the time. I find the PLS lasers have a finer line than the Bosch. They have been very durable over years of installs!
