Customer Questions & Answers

Does it measure in metric

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, you can switch between ft and in, just in, and mm measure.
Answered by: sacherjj
Date published: 2015-11-04

can this measure solution levels as in clear water levels in a tank (distance to solution surface)

Asked by: Anonymous
I would doubt it. It gets funny with liquid surfaces and glass. If you can float something on the liquid, then you could use it.

Does this have a stick attachment that holds it at waist level? It will already add the lenght of the foldable stick to the disatance.

Asked by: Anonymous

Does this distance measurer work in outdoors, in broad day light? Not all laser measuring tools do.

A picture of this measurer shows it does.
Asked by: Rb
Yes, this display is backlit with a color screen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very handy and useful Only drawback is the laser is diffuclt to see outdoors, may need to use or hang a white background to see laser dot. Indoors it's excellent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time saver This tool is such a time saver in framing, piping, and hvac. I use this tool everyday it's is great for accurate measurements over long distance. I never second guess this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and accurate results! I do a lot of odd and end woodworking projects that can mostly be handled with a simple tape measure but one job this Milwaukee Laser Distance Meter has proven invaluable with is installing crown moulding. Regardless if I am using a fat blade tape measure it never fails to bend just as I am reaching the starting point of my measurement prompting me to slowly try it all over again. This is frustrating and time consuming when you are doing this alone! In comes this Milwaukee laser measurement system that I have found very accurate +/- 1/16" at 15-20' spans which in my opinion is better results than the old fashioned tape measure way because I was always dealing with slight tape bows anyways. I can now pull out the end bracket, push it tightly into the ceiling corner, aim it at the other corner, push the power button once to capture the measurement, and then go to my miter saw and make the cut! Fast, simple, and effective! It can also store multiple measurements but I haven't used this function as I would rather do one measurement at a time. The old adage, "Measure twice, cut once" is definitely me. There is also the ability to calculate volume with this tool and I could see where that would be extremely helpful as well. I used to do home energy audits and one component of that was calculating the total living space volume of homes and it was always time consuming to do so with a tape, pencil, paper, and calculator. I only wish this was around when I contracted with the power companies! Anyone doing something similar would save a ton of time and benefit greatly using this Milwaukee laser distance meter. It comes with a nice heavy duty nylon case to keep it either on your work belt or well protected in your toolbox. I can definitely see myself grabbing for this more and more! Highly recommend for tradespeople that find themselves always looking for another hand when it comes time to measure large spanning distances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy Very nice product. I looked at a few competitors in the price range and all had similar features. I think many/all may be made by the same manufacturer (as the downloadable manuals had identical graphics) so I picked this one for the 5 year warranty. The aluminum foot on this one can be used in several positions and is very handy for corners - either outside corners or measuring room diagonals. My only minor beef with this is that the "measure" button can be hard to find if you are not looking at it - a little tactile aid would be welcome for a future upgrade. Sometimes when using the device you need to have the unit in odd positions and can't look directly at it and if your finger slips off the button you sometimes have to bring the unit down and reposition. I have never used this outside but laser glasses and diffuse reflective targets (e.g. red reflector tape) can be used to enhance visibility.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A math lovers dream! This little gem does it all! Area, volume and distance calculations, Pythagorean equations, measurement addition and subtraction. All the while, however, it remains fairly simple to use. This is a great tool for measuring long distances between walls and for things like flooring estimates, wall space, room volume, etc. You can also store multiple measurements at the same time and easily delete one or all of those. In no way will this ever replace a tape measure, but it beats the heck out of a tape measure in specific scenarios.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Works as advertised, but buttons are too stiff, and so flat that there's no way to tell which button your finger is on, or even if it's on a button at all, without looking at the tool. Too many buttons dedicated to little-used functions, yet more common operations require pressing multiple keys at once. That said, I'm sure most people would be happy with it when comparing it with using a tape measure, but when comparing it with similar tools it leaves something to be desired. I did however, get it to measure almost 230'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for roof areas I not only build & remodel homes, but also am an insurance adjuster. This will be great for measuring roof areas, where I don't have to get on my hands and knees to climb around a steep pitched roof area using a tape measure!!
