Missing End Cap
The level looks like it would be decent but it's missing an end cap. It's a bummer to see this lack of quality control.
Response from Milwaukee ToolDec 14, 2021

    Good level
    Great long level. It is an actual 8' level. I have a hard time standing it straight up inside in some locations. This is a great layout tool. I have used this for cabinet installation, as well as floor leveling. Compared to my machinist level, it is exceptionally accurate. It is not spot on to 0.001 degrees, but that is completely unnecessary for 99% of all applications. It is more than adequate for anything most tradesmen would do. The dial is very large, and this is a great feature. Makes it easier to read and adjust as you struggle to support the whole level hanging 8' out from you. The edge is flycut to about a 63 microinch finish, as shown in picture. While I do not own a surface finish profilometer, my comparison gage shows it at about 63. Feels about right as well. Given the overall goals of these Milwaukee levels, I would have liked to see a finer finish, at least a 32 microinch finish. All things considered, it is a well made level that is ready to go out of the box. Great for large layouts, and when a laser isnt appropriate. Great to have around, but remember, it is a true 8' level. It can be difficult to transport!

    Love this Level!
    Ok, I did not understand what my older brother, an architect and former builder, was telling me when he said to get a magnetic level for my deck and DIY projects. I have this now and love it! It is rock solid among the best that I have ever seen compared to what you find in the store shelves. This has already been accidentally dropped and not a scratch or break in the level bubble. It is more than accurate to hang large mirrors as well as wood work. I liked it so much I ordered more of my new brand Milwaukee levels in 30" and torpedo. I highly recommend this to everyone from DIY to professional builder. Love it and look forward to many more uses over my lifetime with it!

    Solid and Accurate but Expensive Level
    I own a numerous levels from several different manufacturers. Milwaukee's entry into the market is bold and quite a solid offering. I'm impressed with the overall feel of the level and it's fit and finish. One distinguishing feature is the overbuilt spirit vial, which is much more sturdy that those even from the top of the line manufacturers. That only really makes a difference if it takes a direct hit, which isn't that common, but it's nice to have. The bubble is large and the vials are set up such that they're very easy to read. I lined it up with my yellow reference level and the readings were spot-on. I compared flipped and rotated the level to check for parallel and consistency and it was spot-on. That's good because if a level fails that test then it's not much good. The level is a little thicker and wider than many other levels. This is a bit of a mixed bag as it feels chunkier. That probably means it will last a bit longer but it also means it's heavier and takes a little more effort to use. My only beef with this level is that it's coming in at the top end of the price range for levels. I haven't seen anything on it to justify that price point and it's unclear if these will hold up over time like the best of breed. I would really like to see this come in somewhere lower in the market.

    Sturdy level
    I just love these Milwaukee Redstick levels! They are built tough, accurate, and are very easy to read. The handy thing about the 16" level is that it fits right in your toolbox, but is also bigger than a torpedo level, and so is quite handy on the job site. The box level style is a little more bulky than a standard level, but the solid metal frame and rubber bumpers on the ends serve well to protect it. As anyone knows that has done any kind of project, levels will fall sooner or later, and only the good ones stay true. The magnets are quite strong, in fact I have bumped it while it was stuck to a metal surface and it moved, but it snapped right back and did not fall! It even has a handy hole for hanging it up in your shop. Of course the most important thing about any level, I found it to be true and accurate. This is a professional quality level at an affordable price.

    Perfect size for any size job, durable and accurate
    This level is great for any size product. It reads very accurately and is a great size and weight, making it easy to haul up and down the ladder. It can take abuse on a job site without really getting damaged, so it's very durable and high quality. I dropped many times from the top of the ladder, and it's still perfectly accurate with barely a scratch. I can't praise these levels enough. Milwaukee definitely takes pride in their products.

    Ideal for big jobs, great accuracy
    Milwaukee tools stand up to the test of time, and this level is no different. It is strong, durable, high quality, well made, and supremely accurate. We just used it over the weekend when we built the deck to make sure we were level. We could put it on the roofline to check the level and could read it clearly from the ground. It is a very long level so it's perfect for large jobs. The magnet holds it in place but also helps pick up nails and screws etc when the job is done. Great value for the quality you're getting here.

    Awesome level for metal work
    We do a lot of metal work on buildings, restoring brick and stone, among other things. This level is awesome. It is large so it works great on the big jobs where the shorter levels just don't cut it. I don't mind the price, because the warranty, quality, durability, etc is well worth it. Milwaukee always stands beside their products and their products are worthy of a great review. This level is very easy to see and read. I would recommend the shorter levels for smaller projects as this length is very awkward on a smaller scale. The magnetic helps hold it in place while you make adjustments and can also help pick up scattered screws, bolts, etc. Milwaukee makes their products really durable and sturdy with high quality materials and excellent accuracy.

    great level
    The milwaukee 59 inch redstick magnetic box level is a top of the line level. It is costly,but well worth the extra money. I have many levels for my work and love quality tools. This level has very strong earth magnets to hold strong. The level has a all-metal back bone that gives it weight and a nice feel. I found the 59 in. length to be helpful over a 48 in. level in some cases. It is a very solid level.

    Heavy duty
    As a plumber I always need accurate and heavy duty tools. This 2' magnetic level was perfect for my needs. I used it most recently on a double laundry tub installation. The heavy weight and substantial "feel" of the level helped it stay in place while I adjusted the legs underneath the tub. I didn't need the magnetic function for this job but it tested it on some nearby ductwork and it held quite well. The vials are nice and large so they're easy to read even with the lousy lighting I was working with. I've been very pleased with all of my Milwaukee levels so far and count them as my favorites.
