Great value for 4' and 2' level
Good price for a sturdy level that is accurate enough to do general DIY work around the house like leveling shelves. Has plastic ends to protect the aluminum body and your work surface. Only downside is the lack of measurements on the level itself.
by GGoose
Amazing value!
We have several expensive Milwaukee (our favorite), and Stabilla levels. This Empire True Blue tested to be accurate against all of them. The kicker: This Empire True Blue is about 1/6 the price. For the pro: This is a great, accurate, lightweight level. And you can let it bang around in your truckbox cause it doesnt cost a fortune. For the homeowners: This is a pro grade tool at a handyman price. Highly reccomend! Super light, accurate, durable. And it matches my tool box

My old 4ft level has been used over 30 years. It is still working but had its share of drops, dings, and use. Bubble mounts getting loose. Looked at levels and chose this one. More expensive than one made in China. Made in USA, well built, light weight, and level bubble has high visibility.

I'm no expert, but after several decades helping my master carpenter husband on countless projects, I have a pretty good idea about how tools should work. Kids using all the good stuff, so am replacing tools as needed. I didn't want/need the magnetic strip but the store was out of the regular levels, and I needed one, so bought it anyway. I ended up returning it for one without the strip. My project was outside, in the dirt, building a block stairway. Lots of iron in dirt resulted in a mess accumulating on the strip, which refused to wipe or clean off. I am perfectly happy with the 2nd level, which wipes clean after each placement. Easy to read, light enough for me to move around. By all rights, I should have purchased the box style, so dirt wouldn't accumulate in the channel or "leak" through the openings when leveling, but not a deal breaker. Good color, easy to find :)

Straight as arrow light as air....
Outstanding level for this price point! Empire is one of the original level companies and they are still making a great product. The bubbles are easy to read. The tolerance lines are nice and tight compared to most. And best of all the unit is nice and light for a four footer. The end caps may not be heavy rubber but this one has hit the travertine a few times already and is still intact and true. Now be careful your helper doesn't step on it if you want it to stay straight, but that's the weight trade off. At this price I would definitely recommend this level. Now if I could just find straight lumber....

Great Level for the DIY'er
This isn’t your contractor grade level. But is a great valve for the homeowner and DIY'er. I put it against my levels and it was just as accurate. The better levels have the line closer together for a closer reading for plumb and level. The cheaper levels, their lines are wider apart. I have a pic below showing the difference of a cheap level and this level. You'll notice the difference in widths of the level lines. Closer they are the better reading you’ll get and a better quality level.The level bubble not the easiest to see being clear. Yellow bubbles are easire to see and read. This is light weight, the grips are comfortable and levels are somewhat easy to read from top and sides. This is a good quality level just not contractor grade so only 4 stars.

Nice light duty level
I already had the 24" and 72" Empire Professional Box levels, but needed something in between, so I chose this less expensive model to fill the gap in the middle. This is a simpler, lighter, slimmer design than the Professional versions, but is still very well made. It is great for light duty use for a DIY or homeowner environment. The vials are large and easy to see, and the side of the level has a hole, so you can see the center vial from the side, which is a really nice feature. The vials are recessed, so they seem relatively well protected, but they aren't covered like the Professional model. The two large handles near the center make the level easy to grab and hold, and the relatively narrow size, and lighter weight, makes it a little easier to use than the bulkier Professional model. Overall, a very nice level that will work well for me.
