Milwaukee surprised me with the range of innovation they brought to a level. It's honestly not the tool I expected to show off to my friends but it's proven to be incredibly useful - Outdoors maintaining the run of a fence with a grade - Indoors running pictures of a wall - In the shop woodworking adjusting for your not so level floor While the digital readout and optional noise letting you know when you're getting to your set degree are great, the power of the level is with the pin-point measurement. Need to hold a reference at 83.7 degrees? Line it up and press the Pin-Point button to add a new reference. Need to invert it? Doubletap the Pin-Point button and you're done. While that's the best there are a range of other features. THe level provides a range of measurements (degrees, percentages, in/ft or mm/m), sensitivities ( whole, tenth, hundredth), tolerances (precise, standard, rough), bright or power saving modes and various languages. The 24 inch version is perfect for providing utility in the house or woodshop (used the most for me) while also being helpful for larger projects outside sometimes augmented by sticking it ontop of a longer level for the best of both worlds. Pros: 1.) Pin-point technology & incredible readout 2.) Power lasts for a long period of time 3.) IP 65 rated - and it's showing no signs of my abuse from dropping it, dropping things on it or submerging it 4.) Handy carrying case - beefy padding, comfortable strap, extra pockets for charging cables and reference manual Cons: Nothing comes to mind - it anything I'd prefer a usb-c charging port instead of the micro charging port which tells you how far I have to go to find something

A very impressive level! This 24” digital level by Milwaukee (model MLDIG24) is high quality, incredibly accurate and precise, flexible, and easy to use. There is no “bubble” - only an electronic display, which is accurate to 0.03 degrees. The dual displays (color on the side, large monochrome on top) are bright and clear, even readable in direct sunlight through polarized sunglasses. The top one is for angular measurements only, while the circular one on the side includes menus for setting various options. The unit measures in angle, percent, in/ft, and mm/m and the sensitivity/precision can be set to whole units, tenths or hundredth for extremely precise measurements. It operates in English, French or Spanish. The unit takes about 5 seconds to power up and initialize, and powers down either automatically or via the power button (hold for three seconds). The included special-purpose battery charges through a standard mini-USB port, and a charging cord and power adapter is included. The top display always shows the current angle and the direction needed to reach the “target” angle. It comes with 0 and 90 degrees preset targets, and adds the option to set a “PIN” target to any angle. The side display shows a more graphic depiction of the rotation needed to reach the target, with a moving directional indicator showing needed rotation as you get withing 10 degrees of target. There is also an audible option where the unit beeps at varying frequency within 10 degrees of your target until the target is reached. Both displays are adjust for orientation: if you flip the level over the displays flips accordingly, so they are always readable. The entire unit comes with a strong padded storage case with shoulder strap, and includes a dedicated zippered compartment for the charger and cord (and other small items if desired). Two things I did not like. The unit only does absolute measurements. You cannot, for example place the unit on an angled surface, set the unit to “0”, then measure relative angles. The only option is – ugh – math. I also had lots of trouble accessing the battery compartment. The cover fits tightly and the latch is difficult to operate while lifting the cover, and there are no instructions to give you confidence you aren't going to break something. I used a small screwdriver to pry up the cover while depressing the latch. See photo. As usual, Milwaukee makes high quality, outstanding tools. There is virtually nothing to dislike about this level except the high price. It's more level than most people need, but if you want the best – this is it!

Milwaukee Redstick 24in Digital Level This 24 inch box level has digital readout on the front and top. It is simple to use immediately for simple leveling horizontal or vertical, but has advanced features to set specific angles, for example. It operates on a rechargeable battery (included) and comes with the USB cord and plug adapter to charge it. It appears well made, strong and durable. The displays are bright, clear, and easy to read. The color display on the front turns green when level. There is an audible mode that beeps when level as well. Comparing to my old bubble levels, this digital level is very accurate. I used it most recently to install some bathroom cabinets. It is really convenient to use. I was able to see the digital level display while on the floor adjusting shims for leveling, and did not have to keep standing up to check the bubble like I would have with my old levels. This level comes with a great soft case with a carry strap. It has a zipper pouch to carry the cord and adapter, and stores and protects the level nicely.

Milwaukee 24 in. Redstick Digital Box Level with Pin-Point Measurement Technology - a Home Depot ...
Milwaukee 24 in. Redstick Digital Box Level with Pin-Point Measurement Technology - a Home Depot Seeds Program Review I think everyone would agree that a level is an essential tool for everyone. I never thought about a really clever one and have gone so far as to balance a bottle one a 2x4 to get a pretty close approximation of level. I got this 24 inch level after I got the 72 inch version of the Redstick. The operation of the two levels is identical and even use the same documentation booklet. I’ll try to summarize and note the differences. Both of these Digital Levels sure opened my eyes to just how much technology can be incorporated into something like a simple level. Obviously the major difference between the 24 inch and 72 inch levels is well...four feet! At 24 inches with the plastic endcaps on it will fit far more easily in tighter spots. Without the endcaps it’s about 21.5 inches so it can get even a little tighter. While much longer I found helping my brother flatten an eight foot long slab of wood to be far superior with the 72 inch level. I found I was less concerned with “exact” level from end to end since there’s far less length to vary a reading. Seriously though, I can live with a variance of a couple of hundredths of a degree over six feet, and even that is easily mitigated by swapping ends and averaging the measurements. This is a digital level with a rechargeable, Li-Ion battery recharged by an included USB cable and an included wall outlet USB charging adapter. There’s an included carrying bag that holds the level and has a pocket for accessories and documentation. I must admit having “accessories and documentation” for a level never crossed my mind. The level has a hang hole at one end for storage when not in the bag. There’s a top display and a front face display. While the top display is pretty generic, the front display is a bit more capable with some color, indicators for set tolerance, battery indicator, PIN settings, etc. The front face also has the control panel for powering off and on, selecting options, setting precision, tolerance, setting desired angles, etc. In addition to the visual displays there’s an audio alarm for when you get close to the selected PIN angle or to the 0 and 90 degree angles. I made sure the battery was fully charged – which took about close to one hour then went through some initial configuration changes like Mode (angle, percent, in/ft, mm/m), Sensitivity (hundreds, tenths, whole), Tolerance, Sounds, Power Mode and Language that you’ll want to make before using. The documentation details ways to do all of this as well as how to do in-field checks of the level. For the most part, the documentation is pretty good and understandable. In use, the level was very accurate with documented accuracy of 0.03 degrees at 0 and 90 degrees and 0.1 degrees between those angles with Milwaukee providing a three year accuracy guarantee. This is far better accuracy than I will probably ever have a need for and with the digital display, far better than I could hope to get eyeballing a bubble in a standard level. Once it’s turned on and starts up, there’s very little that can go wrong. It is, after all, a level. When a desired angle has been measured, pushing the PIN button remembers the angle for repeatability. It’s also possible to manually set a PIN for producing a desired angle. Checking, producing and reproducing angles is simple, accurate and repeatable. If there was anything I could suggest is some sort of magnetic attachments. The level is a good, rigid aluminum but the plastic endcaps are removable. Perhaps there could be an option for magnetic endcaps. I may even fashion these myself by gluing some rare earth magnets into them. The Milwaukee 24 inch Redstick Digital Level, like the 72 inch version, is quite the instrument. This is definitely NOT your father’s level. It’s smart, accurate, durable and consistently produces repeatable results but these come at a pretty steep cost. If your business or work demands excellence in precision measurements the cost could be well worth it. If a bottle balanced on a 2x4 is all the precision you need then you might look for a different product. Personally, while I don’t have the need for super precision, I’m glad I have this 24 inch version of the Redstick Level. Now I have to fashion the magnetic endcaps.

Fantastic tool, though it takes a bit of getting used after using a "traditional" box level. After using it for a month I'm very happy with it. It has a single readout on the side that functions in a similar way to the side view bubbles on a traditional level and an additional display on the top to mimic looking down on the center bubble of a typical box level. It seems solid enough to withstand some abuse at the job site and has nice bumpers on the end that can be easily removed if need be, though I worry about scratching the displays so I left the plastic film on for now... Where this level trumps traditional levels is the ease with which you can check for angles other than the standard 0°,45° or 90°. For example, you can set an arbitrary angle eg 35°, that you are aiming for and it will beep and indicate when you are close and then beep differently when you are at that angle - so you don't even have to be looking at it to know you are at your target. Another really useful feature is being able to set the display to inches per foot instead of degrees - handy for making sure you have the right fall for plumbing or drainage on a slab. You can tell that some thought went into the design and making it as featureful as possible, while still being fairly intuitive to use. PROS: - No more guessing when you want an angle other than 0°,45° or 90°. - Set ("pin") arbitrary angles as your "target" and save them. - Beeps and flashes as you get near your target and differently when you are there. - Can measure in degrees, inches/foot, mm/m, percent. - Sensitivity adjustment. - Tolerance adjustment. - Includes USB cable and charger. CONS (some minor things that would have made it more perfect): - Built in help guide to remind you how to use its features - especially useful for features that you don't use all the time. - "Quick Start Guide" could be more helpful and neglects to mention that the very first step you need to do is dig out the lithium battery buried in the box, insert it into the level and then plug the level into the USB charger. - USB cable is a bit short. - Battery cover door is hard to open - presumably this is because it needs to be waterproof but if you need to swap the battery on a frequent basis (eg if you have backup battery that is always charged), then the door will likely break.

This is the 24” version of the new Milwaukee digital levels (model number MLDGIG24). It’s also available in 14”, 48”, and 72” models. It is a full-featured, highly accurate level. Photo 1 shows you what you get (Level, USB adapter, USB cord, Battery, and Case with shoulder strap). Once you take it out of the box, the first thing you’ll notice is that this level does not include a standard bubble. That may or may not be important to you. To get started, install the battery (see Photo 2) and let it charge (the battery compartment can be a little tough to open—use caution so you don’t break the latch—fortunately, you won’t have to open the latch too often). It took about an hour for it to reach an 80% charge (green charging LED blinking). In the display there is a small battery icon that indicates the level of charge (I didn’t see this mentioned anywhere in the documentation). The included Quick Start guide (which is in color) does a better job of explaining the various modes and functions than the manual (black and white), so I’d start with that. As you approach level (see Photo 3), the main, side display (there is also a top display—see Photo 4) has a rotating indicator around the actual readout. This indicator rotates clockwise to indicate the left side of the level needs to be raised, and vice-versa for counter-clockwise. When you hit level (see Photo 5), the display turns green. You can also turn on an audio signal that lets you know when you’re approaching, and then achieving level. It’s easily turned on or off by double-tapping the power button (there is no visual indicator showing whether you set the sound to on or off). Some key features are Mode selection and PIN Mode. From the menu, you can select whether the display shows the angle, percent, inches per foot, or millimeters per meter. There is a separate button for selecting PIN mode. This feature lets you set the level to indicate level at a selected angle (it still reads the selected angle, but the display turn blue, like the way it turns green for true level). For example, if you’re trying set something at a 30 degree angle, you set the level so it indicates level (turns blue) at 30 degrees. The level also saves a list of the last five PINs (though the Quick Start guide says only two) so you easily return to them. To conserve power, there are two ways that the level enters the Sleep mode. You can leave it alone for three minutes or, lay the level on one of the faces, which puts it to sleep immediately. After another 10 minutes, the level shuts off. When in Sleep mode, you can either move the level or press any button to wake it up. I checked the level’s accuracy with a digital angle finder I have, and the Milwaukee level was dead on. Overall, I think this is a great level. The displays are easy to read and I found the controls easy to master. All my gripes are very minor so I didn’t take any stars off. I think this is a well-made, quality level. It comes with a 3 year warranty.

The digital readout is a great way to find exact level or angle for your project. There is a front display and a top display. The front shows you numeric value (Angle Degrees, Percent, IN/FT, MM/M) and a horizon type indicator that shows tilt from center line. As you approach the set tolerance level it switches to spinning lines showing you direction the level needs to go down to meet the target value. The top display also shows a numeric value but its graphical display is two vertical lines with a gap between them and a horizontal line with a center point. The objective is to put the horizontal center point on the gap between the vertical lines. In standard mode when the target is met (i.e.: 0 degrees or level) the front display lights up green. The other mode is Pinpoint. It allows you to select from three predefined angles (45, 30 and 22.5) and two user set angles which can be adjusted in hundredths with the up down arrow buttons. Once the custom angle is set, it is saved in memory until you replace it with a new value. There is no option to delete the custom values. When a pinpoint value is selected, the target shows as blue marks on the front horizon dial. As with standard mode, as you get within the tolerance range the spinning lines tell you which direction the level needs to go and when target is hit the display turns blue. The Pinpoint value only stores in degrees but if you switch display mode to percent, etc. the target is converted accordingly. Sensitivity can display Hundredths, Tenths or whole numbers. Tolerance adjusts the start of the color activation as the level approaches the desired target. Power mode can be set to High Contrast, Auto and Power Save (front dial disabled to save battery). Languages supported are English, Spanish and French. The kit included a nice durable case, instruction manual, quick start guide, RedLithium USB battery, USB charger and a nice USB cable with metal ends and a braided cord. The battery is rated for 2000 charges. There is no standalone charger included. Charging occurs by connecting the USB charger to the port on the level. Overall I like the level and find its digital accuracy far better than a bubble level. However, based on price, this level is targeted at professionals and not the DIY crowd. My only disappointment with the level is the battery door. The clip is very stiff and I had to pry it open with a screw driver to install the battery. I am concerned it will break after multiple uses so the battery will not be removed until it fails.

Milwaukee 24-Inch REDSTICK Digital Level w/ PIN-POINT Measurement Technology is all about accuracy. It's a digital system with a readout that gives precise readings without all the guesswork. For those who need this it's an excellent choice because of this digital feature. The electronics are pretty straight forward with the control panel on the front of the tool. It has a menu button, up and down arrows, an on/off button and a pin-point setting button. The pin point feature allows you to lock in a setting and then use it as a target when you go to replicate it someplace else. It saves multiple settings and an audible sound is available as a setting to aid in repeating the angle. The display provides several readouts in degrees, percent and inches/foot, if you need them. This is obviously not available in bubble levels. The display itself is large and simply designed. Most of the time, I suspect, you'll use the menu to save your preferences for sensitivity, precision and other settings. Then using it is reduced to turning it on and off when you work. As with other electronic levels it comes with aids like sound to tell you when you're on the pin-point setting and other visuals in the display. It is all encased in a rugged, rigid, frame with rubber end-caps and a padded carrying case that has a handle and shoulder strap. It comes with a battery recharge wire and outlet plug. From my use, definitely use the plug in the wall outlet for a faster charge instead of the USB computer connection which is slow. The outlet charged in less than an hour. The USB connection is good when out in the field for emergency recharges and can also be connected to the USB port in your car. I found the level easy to use, a tad wider than my regular 24-inch level, not much heavier at all. Obviously, the benefit is the highly accurate digital readout instead of a bubble site that allows readings beyond the level, 90-degree and 45-degree points. Its pricey, but so are other top levels like Stabila in that price range.

I was having trouble finding out which part of the railing needed to be adjusted. When I set the Digital Redstick level between the right angles of the railing I could quickly see which section had dropped by how much. (I hate to be fixing the wrong thing ). The read outs on the level were large enough to see clearly. I was able to read how much per foot I needed to raise the rail then a chime sounded when I got there! The instructions were a bit limited,but the level almost taught me how to use itself once I got it charged up and turned on. This comes with a carrying case and battery charger .

This is an awesome product for anyone requiring a level! The level serves it purpose for smaller insignificant jobs as well as the jobs that require extreme precision for success!! The digital screen is very easy to read and gives a lot of information. I have double checked some trim work that appeared to be level with a normal bubble level and I was surprised at how much more precise this digital level is! The level comes in different sizes which is nice. The 24” size is perfect for my needs. Not too big and not too small. The level comes with a usb charging cable and a very nice Velcro carrying case. In my opinion, I would recommend this item to anyone purchasing a level!! Great Product!!
