1.  Don't buy the cheapest one you can buy.  Look for a rotating construction that is easy to use to use, accurate, can handle getting wet and can be serviced if needed.

2.  Always purchase an automatic leveling laser. For example a Leica Rugby 610 or a Rugby 810 laser. The manual lasers are a real hassle and will just end up getting you in trouble on your jobsite.  Auto leveling lasers are the only ones you should buy.

Red beam construction lasers have bee around for many years, but more recently green beam lasers are becoming available.  Within the family of red beam lasers you have line or dot lasers that work up to 100 ft and red beam rotating lasers that can work up to 1000ft.  Examples are the Leica L2+, Leica L2P5 or the Leica Rugby 640 and Leica Rugby 840.

Green beam lasers are 4 times brighter than red lasers when using them a a visible laser dot or line for indoor applications.  Out doors in full sun you cannot realistically see any construction laser dot or line (red or gree) and that is where your electronic laser receiver comes in to see the laser for you.  For outdoor applications whether red or green, a good electronic laser receiver is the way to go.  The green light laser does cost a bit more. but for indoor applications, the green beam line or dot laser is much easier to see.

From my 30 plus years in the laser and instrument business, there a a few things you can check for yourself  before sending the laser off for repair.

Power is the first! If your construction laser is using standard alkaline batteries, try some new ones.  ( Sometimes even new batteries can be faulty, so check a couple sets).

When choosing laser level tools, it is important to consider what type of job the laser level will be used to help complete. A home improvement project might require a manual line level, while a professional framer might require an auto-leveling rotary laser level.Read More
