Works great but unreliable
This product was buyed for my kitchen remodeling. This was my second laser level. Worked great, ( with little use) around a year but 14 months after the buy, the horizontal line went out.

It works for me.
I'm putting in a patio. Worked great for setting elivations. Performed well for back fill grading and leveling. Liked the tripod. It's light duty, but then again it dose not have to hold much.

cross laser fits the bill and the wallet
The best price we could find for a reliable and accurate cross laser. We set trim, cabinets and fixtures; being able to utilize a laser of this quality cuts set up time in half and gives us a verifiable state of quality. I recommend this product for every contractor's tool box.

Decent for the price
The laser is good, the tripod isn't. I am glad that I have my own camera tripod that allows me to adjust the height of the laser a lot easier that the tripod that comes with this level. The level is very light and flimsy.

Overall the Skill Self-Leveling Cross-Line Laser is what I was looking for at a reasonable price.

AMAZING
I am an avid DIY'er, and this last level makes my jobs go so much faster. My first project with the laser was a loft storage unit in my garage. I even double checked it with my level and it was spot on. Great buy for the price and I will be using it for everything around the house.

Worked as advertized
I bought this to use to install kitchen cabinets. It worked exactly as advertised. The tripod is chincy, but I have good photo tripods so that was not a problem. The lines are clearly visible in a daylight lit room.

Worked great for the installation of my kitchen cabinets.  The tripod could be a little beefier, but was adequate for my installation.  I haven't used this level for any new projects, but was worth the purchase for the cabinet installation alone.

Great Value
Great product for an even better value.
This is on par with similar brands in the two hundred dollar range.
The only drawback is this unit isn't strong enough for outdoor use or distances over 50'

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.
