48 in. Tradesman Aluminum Level is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every house should have one This level has helped me in numerous house projects of all kinds. It has passed the sturdiness test since I’ve dropped it from the ladder a few times and it did not break. I sometimes even use it as a ruler. Every house should have one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cant level w/a bent level Mine is bent. Seemed ok at the store but after some minor use it's clearly not an accurate strait edge. Placed it against a flat glass surface to reveal bumps and bends that keep it from being a reliable measure. I am not happy - returning it now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great value, does the job, but weak construction. I thought it was going to be great to have such a lightweight level for a framing project of mine until, accidentally, it was hit by a falling stud. Now I have a level with a two inch curve in it... If you're careful it's okay but if you're going to put your level through the wringer, get a sturdier box version.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value I used this level almost immediately, and have been using it since it's purchase. I'm glad Home Depot had it in the aisle as a featured value product. That reminded me I needed a 4 ft, level in my home improvement project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a good tool for DIY bought it for my back yard project. it fits my needs. for DIY(not pro use), it is really good for its quality and price. no complaint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price. Good for the price. Sturdy enough for home use and maybe light jobsite use. Accurate off of the shelf. A much better choice so far than the plastic one I did have and snapped in cold weather. I still have a nice wood one for more precise work. If you need one to have around the house, this is worth having.
