Very good value for the money
I purchased this as a factory reconditioned unit, with full warranty, which enabled me to buy a much higher quality instrument for my budget. This unit is very well made, and once it is set up, it is easy to use. I purchased a Bosch tripod to go with it, which I am also very happy with.

The three Bosch models in this lineup are essentially identical except for the magnification. This unit has the highest (32x), which is good for longer distances. The tradeoff, however, is that the image is quite sensitive to very small movements or vibrations of the instrument or tripod.

The carrying case is very well made and has a place for the level and all supplied accessories. I was surprised that the unit required calibration even though it had just come from the factory. The spirit level was not in alignment when I spun the unit 180 degrees. The manual describes how to fix this issue, but it was quite tedious as a first time user.

The level also needed line-of-sight adjustment; that is, the optics were slightly out of horizontal alignment. Again, the manual explained how to fix this, but it too was a tedious procedure. I would have expected these errors to be adjusted out at the factory.

Speaking of the manual - I would call it minimally adequate. If it had been better done, I would have given 5 stars. The illustrations are all gathered at the beginning of the text, so you have to keep flipping back and forth while reading the instructions. Also, the instructions themselves would benefit from some clarifications and better examples. It's great that the setup instructions are there, but it took me 2-3 readings and several trial-and-error passes to figure out exactly what they were trying to communicate.

Overall, the instrument is made with quality parts and is well assembled. The two things I would like to see improved would be a little heavier cross-hairs in the optical sight, and white paint in the markings on the circular degree ring around the base of the unit. Black on black is not super visible. A "nice to have" would be a vernier scale for accurately reading values between degrees on the circular degree ring.

A great tool for a great price.
I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. Buying a reconditioned tool makes it possible to own quality tools.

Satisfied Customer
The reconditioned Bosch GOL32-RT32X I purchased through CPO was shipped promptly, in excellent condition. Had it checked and found it to be only .003 off at 300 ft. Have used it several times, it is easy to adjust and use. Would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a accurate and dependable level.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
