Dewalt adds visibility and power to self-levelling laser line-up

Dewalt has combined its power tool battery and laser technology know-how and added a 10.8V red and green beam self-levelling cross-line and 360° line lasers to its portfolio. The DCE088D1G and DCE089D1G are the first models in the DEWALT range to feature a green diode.

Industry trends have shown that green lasers are the future for applications in construction, specifically for indoor tasks, as the beam is four times brighter to the naked eye than red.

Industry trends have shown that green lasers are the future for applications in construction, specifically for indoor tasks, as the beam is four times brighter to the naked eye than red. They provide greater visibility, especially in very bright, light conditions, and over longer distances. They are also ideal for the precise installation of drywall, drop ceilings and ventilation systems, amongst other applications.

The 10.8V XR Lithium-Ion platform is said to offer extended laser runtime compared to regular AA batteries as well as added versatility. The 10.8V battery pack can be easily removed and transferred between the new lasers, or to another compatible DEWALT power tool, and vice versa.

The green beam self-levelling cross-line and 360° line lasers provide a working range of 30m with an accuracy of +/-3mm at 10m. Additional useful features include a pendulum lock for safe transportation. Furthermore, the durable over-moulded casing has been designed to maintain calibration of the tool, and to protect components in extreme construction environments. Drop-tested to 2m, and IP65 certified, it has been engineered for sustained resistance to solvents, water entry and debris.

Featuring the same technical product specification as the green diode lasers (enhanced visibility rating excluded), the latest extension to the DEWALT portfolio also includes red beam self-levelling cross-line (DCE088NR) and 360° line lasers (DCE089NR) with a range of 15m and an accuracy of +/-3mm at 10m.

*DCE088D1G and DCE089D1G models only

Key features:

  • 10.8V XR Lithium-Ion battery pack for extended laser runtime and fast charging
  • Locking pendulum to prevent internal component damage during transportation
  • Wear-resistant IP65 rated over-mould to withstand harsh jobsite environments
  • Integrated magnetic pivoting base with ¼” thread
  • Full-time pulse mode allows use with a detector (increasing working range to 60m)
