Single Laser Level That Can Do These Tasks..

Does anyone know of a single good level that can:
Interior applications:
* 5 point alignment for squaring, plumbing and leveling, such as:

Exterior applications:
* Can have a receiver mounted to a excavator to dig to a certain depth
* Can used a hand held receiver to check for proper depth of trench
* Can do a slope
Like the topcon laser/receivers...

However, I don't want to buy multiple levels, are there any that can do "all of the above" that anyone is aware of?

As far as I know, no.

Lasers for interior work have a very bright line, but by the nature of the thing, it is less accurate. The line is quite thick.

Exterior lasers, on the other hand, are difficult to see inside, and downright impossible to see out of doors. They pretty much require a detector. But they also have a range of 500-1,000 or more feet. And accuracy can be around 1/16" at 100'.

As far as shooting slope, the only one's I know of are pretty pricey, like 1,500 dollar range. David White and CST/Berger are good brands. These are only exterior, and require a detector. The one on my wishlist has a 2,000' range.

Re: Single Laser Level That Can Do These Tasks..

I think your asking how to buy a prius that can haul like a one ton truck.

I really like my dewalt green 3 line. It gives three 360 degree lines. So if all 3 lines are on it will cross 6 times like a 6 point for laser. Shows very bright in a bright room. Exterior is tough during daylight. The little reflective plate it comes with helps.

Exterior wise I break out the Bosch rotary laser.
