Re: GIVEAWAY: PLS 3G Green Laser Level Kit!


I regularly use a torpedo, 2', 32", 4', 6'. Things that come along once in a while: bucket/hose, plate level, lasers, and a plumb bob.

I have a stable of stabila's and use the 78" often for tile work. Once in awhile I'll pull out a dewalt laser for laying out lines for tile work.

Re: GIVEAWAY: PLS 3G Green Laser Level Kit!


My red laser has replaced most levels for interior work. I still carry 2' and 4' stick, the 6' stick rarely leaves storage.
A green laser has been on my wish list for a long time, the improved visibility would be appreciated

Re: GIVEAWAY: PLS 3G Green Laser Level Kit!


depends on what I can find when I need it, I keep a 4ft in my truck, a 7ft in the garage, and probably a few 2 footers laying around. Anything under 2ft gets lost all the time so I have no idea where they are.

For laser levels I have a cheap piece of junk thats better then nothing.

Re: GIVEAWAY: PLS 3G Green Laser Level Kit!


I keep in my tool pouch a torpedo level, on the truck I have a 2 foot level and a 4 foot level also a six foot, then I have a magnetic torpedo on the truck but I have a 4 foot magnetic I keep in storage for metal stud framing, also on the truck I have a laser plumb bob for framing and a laser torpedo level I use for lay out, tile int walls etc before pinging a line then I have 4 or 5 string line levels for fence work and block and a 4 foot masonry level for block work, I also have a post level (really a plumb c/k), last but least I have a self leveling rotary laser.

Jez I never thought about how many ways I have to c/k for level and plumb, back in the 90's when I was a crew chief we would use a digital level called a "smart level" to set up suspension and steering I think we will see more and more of these in construction not only to read a level but also to shoot a laser line

Re: GIVEAWAY: PLS 3G Green Laser Level Kit!


I still use levels of all kinds in my work.
I often have to figure out and diagnose problems with existing homes in part using levels so that my engineer can come up with a solution.
I use everything from a torpedo level to 6' level to a laser level, not as nice as this one though.

I have about 10 stabila stick levels, a milwaukee plumb dot and a PLS redline laser. Also a David White Transit.

I'm ready to graduate to green lasers.

We have a laser but it only does one direction so this would be a nice improvement. Thanks for the opportunity especially since I don't post here alot.

Re: GIVEAWAY: PLS 3G Green Laser Level Kit!


A whole bunch of cheap levels and a couple years ago I invested in a Stabila plate and jamber set.

I have several less expensive red laser levels, none that are my " go to's".

I sure would like to try a green laser

I have 6 or 7 different length stick levels, a few torpedo levels, a red beam laser level, a collection of line levels and I think I have a water level around here somewhere but I never use it.

Re: GIVEAWAY: PLS 3G Green Laser Level Kit!


I pretty much just have different length stick levels, did have a water level sometime back they are interesting to use. A laser level would be nice and make my job easier on some of the chopped up houses I work on where the siding need to match up on different levels.

Re: GIVEAWAY: PLS 3G Green Laser Level Kit!


I have a variety of levels. I've been using the same PLS5 for about 15 years. I also have a Stabila 12' plate level and a variety of 24", 48" and 72" bar levels. I also recently purchased a Hilti PM 2LG green line laser.

I like the PLS5 for vertically plumbing points, but the red laser is harder to see in daylight.

The Hilti PM 2LG with green line does both band and laser point.
