Lasers are typically utilized in the early stages of construction, and measurement needs will vary based on application requirements. The Makita self-leveling cross-line laser (SK104Z) gives the user horizontal and vertical reference lines required in leveling and aligning applications. It has a fast self-leveling time, achieving stability within 3 seconds for increased productivity. For work on uneven surfaces, the self-leveling is correctable to up to 4 degrees of slope. Depending on ambient light in the working environment, the SK104Z has a line visibility range up to 50 ft. For added durability, the SK104Z has recessed laser windows that are highly protected from fracture damage and drops, and the full over-sized rubber over-mold provides increased protection. For added convenience, the multi-purpose magnetic bracket allows for attachment to a tripod with a 1/4 in. or 5/8 in. thread, or to metal and wood objects.
