Makita has released three new laser instruments engineered for precision and efficiency: the Self-Leveling Combination Cross-Line/Point Laser, as well as the Laser Distance Measure 164’ and Laser Distance Measure 262’.
"On jobsites there is a constant effort to raise productivity, and contractors are seeking tools that help them solve problems and make them more efficient in every application," said David Fernandez, Product Manager, Commercial Products. "Now, Makita is giving contractors solutions for various stages of construction with three precision laser instruments."
Makita Self-Leveling Combination Cross-Line/Point Laser (model SK103PZ)
The new SK103PZ gives contractors one instrument for all laser needs within a 50’ distance range requirement. The SK103PZ provides all possible reference lines required in leveling, aligning, plumbing, and squaring applications. The Combination Cross-Line & Point Laser capability of SK103PZ will eliminate the need to invest in various multi-directional laser types that would otherwise have to be purchased and handled separately.
A key feature is the laser line capacity, and the laser line fan length spans well past the 90 degree point position to provide a 180 degree horizontal line and 120 vertical line for full reference line coverage. Accuracy is vital in the measurement phase of construction, and the SK103PZ has a line and point accuracy of +/- 1/8” error rate at 30'. The SK103PZ also has key durability features including rubber over-molding, laser glass inset, and a pendulum lock to protect the laser diode during storage. The pendulum lock also allows for sloped applications.
Laser Distance Measure 164’ (LD050P) and Laser Distance Measure 262’ (LD080P)
Makita’s two new distance measuring instruments offer a fast and convenient solution to distance measuring applications that would otherwise require multiple steps to achieve. Compared to conventional tape measuring methods, laser distance measures provide unmatched levels of productivity and sophistication to various measuring applications.
The LD050P has a distance operating range of up to 164’ with an accuracy of +/- 5/64”. It provides both unit standards of measurement and 7 measurement functions: distance, area, volume, permanent, min/max, add/subtract & Pythagoras (2 point), and Pythagoras (3 point).
The LD080P has a distance operating range of 262’ with an accuracy of +/- 1/16”, with both unit standards of measurement. In addition to the 7 measurement functions of the LD050P, the LD080P also offers stake-out and Pythagoras (partial height) for increased versatility. Both measurement tools are equipped with an industry standard Type 635nm/Class II Laser and will provide up to 5,000 hours of run time on a single charge (AAA batteries sold separately).
