I have the one that is larger and the vertical is better coverage. This one is horrible even for a small job. ended up returning it to get the larger one.

Does this laser have the ability to lock?

No, it can not be locked.

Does this laser project a line on the ceiling if placed on the floor?

Asked by john September 19, 2019

Answer

It will project onto the ceiling but I don't think the self-leveling feature will work. It can be laid on its back pointing up but it's pretty unstable.. When pointed to the wall it will projet a foot or son onto the ceiling as well.

Is this good for hanging drop ceilings?

It would work good if your room isnt larger than the lasers range.

This is a fine addition to the Bosch line of tools! I used this 40 FT. SELF LEVELING CROSS LINE LASER WITH VISIMAX GREEN BEAM on a brick wall I was repairing, and it made the job so much easier than having a string in the way! The picture doesn't show the clarity of the lines, but they are very easy to see! My next project using this tool, is going to be re-tiling my shower! I highly recommend this tool!

This Bosch laser level provides a distinct and very visible green line in both horizontal and level orientations and a vertical plumb line. It is self leveling once it is held stable with the adjustable clamp or placed on a tripod. It is intended for indoor use only and the laser line is not very visible in the outdoors. The unit includes a tripod mounting, which is a threaded insert similar to what is on the base of a camera. Also included is a padded case that holds the unit. The case is made of a sturdy and strong plastic and should be kept in the case to prevent damage when not in use.

This is my second generation laser level. Like so many others, my first one had a single red beam that was limited and was not self leveling like this gem. I was anxious to see if my back pack tripod would work with this unit so I tested it in my basement (see photo) with great results. Next, I tried the mounting device clamp which is very flexible and has rubber pads in order to protect the clamping surface. The last image was to create a level datum for a drop ceiling project. The hallway was fairly dark and the sun was bright coming through the door window but you could still see the green laser beam on the door and the concrete block.

This is one great laser level! This Bosch 40-ft Self-Leveling Cross Line Laser with Visimax Green Beam is the best laser level I've ever used. The green beam is super bright and easy to see (compared to the weak red beam of my old laser level.) The self-leveling feature works as soon as you get the laser head roughly level on a tripod or the included clamp mount. I used my camera tripod screw mount that fit the standard 1/4-20 female thread in the bottom of the laser head, but the clamp mount would work equally well on almost any board or edge that's the thckness of a 2x4 or less. As with all laser devices, you should never look directly at the laser beam outlet. This laser level worked extremely well for giving me an absolute level line to use when I was installing a shiplap feature wall in our master bedroom. The laser head is somewhat delicate, so you need to be careful not to drop it. The kit includes a nice little padded pouch to protect the laser head when it's not in use. It uses just two 1.5 Volt AA Alkaline Batteries that last a long time. I'm sure I'll find lots of other uses for this little gem.

Bosch GLL40-20G 40 ft. Self Leveling Cross Line Laser with VisiMax Green Beam - a Home Depot Seeds Program Review I really like using a laser level. I already had a single line, red laser level that I got when tiling a bathroom. I found very useful for lots of other things like straightening pictures, lining up hooks and checking door frames. I got this Bosch Self Leveling Cross line Green Laser (GLL40-20G). I’ve had a little opportunity to use it and compare it to my existing red laser. The Bosch Green Laser is MUCH brighter! I’m able to see the laser lines even in the brightest of lighting. I fins the red laser washes out in brighter light. Generally this isn’t a problem since what I’ checking is pretty close and the red laser is useful even in brighter light. Stretched out over a distance greater than 20 feet or so is a little more problematic for the red laser. The Bosch green laser is rated for 40 feet and it’s very readable in brighter light. This line, according to the documentation, is accurate to +/- 5/16” at 30 feet – plenty accurate for my needs. The Bosch is cross line laser so there is a horizontal and vertical line displayed simultaneously. This is really useful for checking a corner of, say a picture frame. It also means you can set it up and shoot vertical and horizontal layouts without moving the laser. My red laser is not easily mounted though it can be taped or tacked to another surface. It has a large, flat bottom surface that can be held easily to a corresponding flat surface. The Bosch Green Laser has a reasonably flat bottom surface as well. It also has a 1/4” tripod mount like that found on tripod for photographic use. The Bosch Laser also includes a very interesting mount that can be clamp to lots of things like boards, pipes, table and counter edges, etc. The laser can then be mounted to this clamp and used without holding it. I tried it with the laser and found it worked very well. I also found it worked better than “very well” for my camera since it allows me to mount the camera stably to almost any surface. Frankly, this mount will probably spend more time in my camera bag until needed for the laser level. The red laser has two bubble levels in it to verify level both vertically and horizontally. These bubble levels are very hard to read in low light but are very easy to make sure you’re shooting a level line across a wall or up a door frame but, since it’s handheld, you need to keep checking the bubbles for level. The Bosch laser is self leveling. Once mounted and turned on the cross lines will blink every few seconds and level the perfectly as long as the mounting is within about 4 degrees. If it keeps blinking you need to “eyeball” adjust the level until pretty close then the self leveling takes place and the blinking lines should stop. This works really well except that the laser level must mounted in the upright position and the mount must be at the height on the line you’re shooting. If, for example, you’re trying to layout nails six feet up for pictures on a wall, the mount must be high enough to show the horizontal line leveled and not blinking. You can certainly level the laser at a lower height then tilt it up to the level you need but the lines will start blinking which may be annoying. It also means that your mount or tripod must be good enough to allow dead straight up and down motion without any tilting left or right. The self leveling works in a handheld application, say on a wall, as long as you hold the level upright to the wall using the sides as reference but the surfaces on the sides are somewhat uneven and it feels awkward holding the sides to the wall while getting the self leveling correct. The Bosch Laser Level can be set to virtually any angle need for layout but you will have to deal with the blinking unless it’s upright and level. The Bosch Laser comes with a carrying bag that can be looped on your belt but there’s no room in the bag for the included mounting device. It’s pretty small and light – about the size of a tape measure. The ON/OFF switch is a little stiff but the reason is that the switch also locks the self leveling mechanism into place so it doesn’t get damaged. It doesn’t turn itself off automatically and will run until the two AA batteries – included – run out of power. I really like the Bosch Green Cross Line Laser. The cross lines are very bright and simultaneously run vertical and horizontal accurately. The self leveling is terrific and is far more accurate than me eyeballing a bubble level – especially in low light. I couldn’t find anything my red laser would do that the Bosch would not though the Bosch is best properly mounted on a tripod or other mount. The uneven side surfaces on the of the Bosch it make it a little more awkward to take advantage of the self leveling if handheld against a wall doing a quick check of level on a mounted picture. Squared sides that are perpendicular to the bottom of the level would be a good thing. Having the back squared and perpendicular would also extend it’s ease of use and versatility. The blinking every few seconds if the laser isn’t close enough to level for the self leveling mechanism to work may be annoying to some but I didn’t have a problem with it. The included batteries, great mount and bag are ice touches. Since this Bosch Laser Level does everything my red laser does and much more, I’ll probably be giving the red laser away and keep just the Bosch.
