Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by another fine tool from bosch gets rid of the need of the guy on the dumb end time saver August 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! Easy to use. Placing foundation sticks is really easy. Have yet to read the manual as everything I need seems intuitive. I was able to position a fence easily. My neighbor's house was my reference and held the GLM 80 against a vertical rebar. Used my GLM 80 in laying out a work shelf that would also hold my computer. Getting distances was a snap AND did not have to move furniture! I am sure it will make not only laying out posts for a pole barn but the installation as well. May 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I would give it 10 stars if you ywould let me! This is a Winner tool, I am a DIY guy and bought this for myself for Christmas. Is it accurate? YES. So far I have only used it for measurements, I have found it to be dead on accurate-as in measure once, cut to size, and assemble. It is that accurate (to the 32nd). I am a former machinist and enjoy the close tolerance that can be achieved using this tool. Using the angle to get a length is a little tricky, and might be better to use a tripod. I am waiting for a deal on the R60 level that can be used with the GLM-80. I like the rechargable battery that comes with the GLM-80. It was more expensive than the other basic GLMs but I am more than happy with the purchase. No more making inside measurements holding one side, bending the other side of the tape rule 90 degrees and guessing for me!While putting flooring in my attic I was putting 2X4s across the rafters so I could brace and nail my plywood to it. I was suprised that 22 1/2" is not always 22 1/2" either I was pounding the 2X4 in or it would fall through. Using the GLM-80 I could fit the 2X4 perfect every time. I am sold! January 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by After 6 months Real estate appraiser. Use it to measure single family residences inside and out. Accurate and easy to uses. Display can be seen in strong daylight. On the other hand when outside in strong daylight the laser is very difficult to see at over 40'. The charge socket cover keeps peeling back when in use and makes it difficult to place back into the belt pouch. December 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fast and Easy I measure offices for cable installation almost daily. The GLM 80 has been a great addition to my tools, it is faster and more accurate than a wheel or tape measure. The only down side is that it is not easy to see the laser on dark surfaces more than 100 feet away. The battery is great, I charge from my computer about once a month while I am at my desk. July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Surprised at Accuracy I bought this laser measure a couple of months ago, as I had been looking at buying one for about a year now. We are looking at purchasing a new house, so it has really come in handy measuring/verifying room sizes. I cannot believe how accurate it turned out to be. And better yet is the distance that I am able to measure (I have even used it to measure property lot lines). I would definitely recommend this product. June 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Accuracy that has helped improve job quality! I run a construction company in Kenya, and last time I was in the US I picked this tool up. Because of the accuracy, especially in indoor measurements, I have been able to improve the quality of the finished product and in a short period of time. It also feels durable and has a solid battery life. I highly recommend this product! April 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flooring I needed a laser measurer to do square footage fast in cluttered homes where a tape measure just won't cut it. Had this a year now and it works great, saves me a ton of time. April 11, 2014
