Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stylish, Sturdy, Made in USA This level played as a quarterback in my project to put together a wooden base for my outdoor shed. Without it, I know I could not have achieved the perfect grading I wanted unless I ran masonry thread with thread level. To hold my wooden base, I had the base bricks about 6 feet apart and I found this level to be perfect when leveling the concrete bricks on pea pebbles. For my project, its size certainly mattered. It did not feel heavy on my arms when I was moving around with it. The magnetic strip holds really well and adds great convenience. It looks stylish and feels study but the best part is that it’s made in USA. I am looking forward to using it for my next project in coming spring to build a floor deck. I love it and certainly recommend it to everyone. March 15, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good Level , not Great Light weight, sleek design, only draw back I could find is the magnetic side is week. I was not able to attach this magnetically w/ out concerns of it falling. Only draw back I could see. Also works well as a straight edge. January 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nicely made; easy to read The Empire Level is pretty much a "you get what you see product". It's a level. I was impressed at the lightweight design. Being that most 78" levels, are bulky to use and heavy, the Empire 78" level is made from Aluminum making it usable in other situations that are not normally suited for such large length levels. This level is extremely easy to use. The magnetic strip on the back only compliments the ease of use. It is easy to use, easy to read, and well made January 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Quality Level for the Price This level is accurate and made of high quality materials. The true blue vials are very easy to read in bright daylight and darker areas as well. The center level can be read from the top/front/back of the level (perfect to view from multiple angles). Love how light weight, yet very durable and made of high quality materials. One of my favorite features is the Lifetime Warranty on the "True Blue Vial". I ordered this item online, and checked its accuracy once I received it from the shipping company. I have attached the link to show you how to check for vial accuracy. I would recommend purchasing a case to help protect your level when its not in use, as i find this is how i damaged levels in the past. February 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Quality This product made my task of leveling new deck steps much easier and more accurate. It is easy to read and most accurate. July 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Made in the USA, excellent quality and value Made in the USA, excellent quality and value. So far a great product. light and accurate. July 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very handy I'm please with the product .gets the job done quicker for large area leveling for patio or other jobs July 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really accurate huge level This is my second Empire level and this one is just as good as the old one. I test them against my metal lathe bed which has been leveled with a certified precision machinist level. Both Empire levels show the bubble exactly centered with the lathe test. The 78 inch level seems huge, too long for many tasks, but just right for my next project which requires a 14 foot composite circular beam which needs to be flat and level with as much precision as possible.
