BOSCH Self-Leveling Cross-Line Laser GLL2-10

Bosch Laser level makes sure your work is “on the level.”

Self-leveling laser tools are ideal for many professional and DIY installations.  Self-leveling lasers are useful for installing tile to hanging shelving.  These laser levels ensure that your layout lines and installations are level and or plumb and are great for providing a hands free visual line.

Recently the folks at Bosch sent me their GLL2-10 self-leveling cross-line laserto check out.

First Impression:

The Bosch GLL2-10 self-leveling cross-line laser is lightweight and about the size of a large tape measure. Two AAA batteries power this unit.

It has two independently functioning horizontal and vertical beams provide level and plumb lines.  The horizontal level projects a level laser line with 100 degree fan angle, the vertical laser level projects a vertical plumb line along floor, up the wall, and across the ceiling. Both lines stay visible at all times.

The Bosch GLL2-10 self-leveling laser has a “Smart Pendulum Leveling System,” which means it self-levels, senses and indicates when an out-of level condition exists and turns off the laser line, allowing you to correct this condition by adjusting the laser on its stand. This automatic “Out-of-Level Sensing” shows a green LED for “level” and red LED for “out-of-level.”

Using the Bosch GLL2-10 Self-leveling laser level:

I found Bosch GLL2-10 Self-leveling laser level easy to use. The only control is an on / off switch.  There are no fancy bells and whistles, just a level and plumb line that is bright enough to see indoors and in most outdoor daylight conditions.  The GLL2-10 provided an accurate [ ±7/32-inch] level and plumb line up to 30 feet.

Overall Impression:

For an entry level laser the  Bosch GLL2-10 will pay for itself on the first tile or cabinet job.  There are no fancy options just and on and off button.  I do recommend using this device with a tri-pod.
