Listed below are the three types of leveling lasers:
Manual: The laser is kept level through the use of glass level vials. The user must check these vials periodically because the level bubbles may more during the day in response to vibrations or temperature change. This type is best for inside construction jobs.
Semi-Automatic Leveling: In this type of leveling the laser has a compensator, which is a gravity based pendulum. In this type of leveling the user turns leveling screws to center a level vial. Once the laser is rough leveled, the compensator maintains the laser reference at its specified accuracy.
Automatic Leveling: In this type of leveling the laser has a servo motor system, with electronic level sensors that send information to a processor which activates motors that drive the laser to level. When using a servo system, the user mounts the laser on a tripod, turns on the power, and waits for the laser to drive itself to level.
The question of course is what type of leveling laser is best for me, as a contractor? At Lascolaser.com we believe that can depend on many different variables, one of the best ways to answer that is what type of contractor are you? And what type of work do you do?
The small do it yourself contractor that needs an inexpensive laser for inside leveling might be able to get by with a lower cost manual laser. The medium size contractor that works both inside and outside jobs might be best to pick a semi-automatic medium priced laser. The larger professional contractor doing large jobs would be best to buy the automatic leveling laser that is easy to set-up and best for all types of larger inside and outside jobs.
