DeWalt: Laser Distance Measurer

January 4, 2010


The laser distance measurer DW030 provides users with a quick and efficient way to estimate space on the jobsite. The DW030 can be used by estimators, foremen, superintendents, plumbers, electricians, general contractors, and HVAC and industrial maintenance professionals to measure distance, square footage, and volume. The DW030 has a compact design and rubber overmolding for easy grip and operation. Additionally, the unit has large, clearly marked buttons that allow users to quickly and accurately select between units, area, distance, and volume buttons. For added ease of use, the DW030 has a backlight display for improved visibility on jobsites. According to the manufacturer, the unit is built to withstand a 6-foot drop and is resistant to water and dust, providing users with a unit that can endure jobsite abuse and various weather conditions. For improved accuracy, it measures distance from the back of the unit, which means users do not have to calculate the size of the laser into measurements. Additionally, a flat-bottom design provides added stability while measuring from set positions.
