OVERALL: Easy to use, no harder than my laser measuring device. Impressive construction, strong measuring rod and tripod. Balances quickly and accurately, very nice set.
ROTATING LASER: Easy to use, only three buttons. Can quickly set to 360 or smaller angle. Top laser produces straight line easily when unit placed on back.
MEASURING ROD: A total of eight feet, collapses down to about 2 and 1/2 feet. The receiver attaches quickly and easily with clamp.
TRIPOD: Extends to about 5 1/2 feet, legs are in three sections. Double clamps hold the sections in place very well. Laser attaches easily and securely.
CASE: Double walled , much bigger than you might think, kind of a pain to store, but worth it. Every piece fits well into its slot. Worth noting that the tripod and measuring rod don't go in the case.

This was my first experience with a rotary laser level. Cool! First used it to measure and map the grade in the backyard in order to determine fill dirt volume required for a construction project.
What I LIKE? 1) All parts are high quality; 2) Nice lightweight tripod and telescoping 8-ft rod; 3) Range and accuracy (1/4â per 100â) is fine for most jobs; 4) Levels itself quickly after set-up (much quicker than bubbles on a manual optical level); 5) kit also includes a sturdy wall mount for indoor use where the tri-pod isnât tall enough; 6) don't need a 2nd person to do the job.
Future applications insured! Great addition to my getting-more-valuable-every-day toolbox!

This is a bad to the bone rotary laser. While you start with a trusted brand that only produces high quality products and stand behind with top notch customer service, you get a tool that will not let you down. It comes with everything you will possibly need on the jobsite except a cup of a coffee. Seriously, it has one of the nicest set-ups I've had the chance to use and I have used some horrible units with tin tripods that make your camera tripod look like they cost a million bucks. It self levels within 60 seconds and has multiple speeds. The sensor works well on the leveling rod to determine grades with beeps and tells you low or high. The only thing I have yet to try is if I can see the laser some 500 ft away let alone 800...I doubt it. None the less, this is a great rotary laser and truly has everything you need out of the box including the batteries.

Though I already own a very high-quality, vintage transit used for the very same purpose (not laser), I was tempted into getting this kit. The ability to lay out a foundation, paint line, flooring, tile, etc by myself is a huge time savings as a DIY guy; I can imagine the labor savings to a contractor not needing 2 guys to do this task.
The items are well made and easy to use. Storage is compact. Yes, there is a potential "error" is laser as the light can be refract off particles in the air. If doing a large area, such as a foundation, my suggestion is to shoot the foundation/layout from multiple directions to "double check" the work and minimize any error.
Great product but I too feel the price is a bit on the high side THOUGH you do receive a quality product that is built to last & relatively easy to use.

Easy set up. Fine adjustment is not even an option with this. It should have a telescoping hand crank so you can fine tune the adjustment after you set it up if you are trying to set up the laser to be a very specific height.
Accuracy is -/+ 1/4" at 100ft. so at the max range of 800' your accuracy is -/+ 2". Glad I am not using this at 800'! I find it interesting how a laser beam can be so inaccurate. I have noticed this with many Bosch products. Their accuracy isn't very good at range.
For the price....I don't know if i would buy this again. I just happened to get a great deal on it. Time will tell. the kit this came with was a pretty stellar kit, hopefully it works for quite a while.
