I am about to embark on building my own home. To add to the complexity of the build, the site is super remote on an outlying island in Fiji which means a couple of things. Firstly we need to build for cyclones (hurricanes) so will be building an all poured in place concrete structure with a standing seam hip roof. The next challenge is that getting certain pieces of equipment can be a challenge, running down to the Home Depot isn't really an option for many things. For the most part, I need to buy equipment as rentals are not available. Finally, the build is on a moderately sloped lot.

I have a container of building supplies leaving LA in a few weeks and want to add a laser level to my kit. I've been reading reviews and am a bit confused as to what I need. It seems as if many laser levels are trade-specific. I am looking for a laser level that will serve me well for most things, from foundation layout, getting the walls straight, square and plumb to hanging cabinets level, to laying floor tiles, etc. What are your thoughts on the Stabila 180 (overkill???) or the 160G? Are there any other contenders I should be looking at? I would prefer to stay under $1500-2000 if at all possible.

Thanks in advance.
