Milwaukee 165-Foot Laser Line Detector 48-35-1211

Milwaukee 165-Foot Laser Line Detector

Going green on your lasers gives you better visibility, but even interior lighting limits how far you can see green beams compared to their full potential. Following the successful launch of green plane and line lasers, the Milwaukee 165-Foot Laser Line Detector extends your range beyond what your eyes can see.

Milwaukee 165-Foot Laser Line Detector: The Big Deal

Out of the gate, it’s a big deal that Milwaukee now has a laser line detector to pair with their plane and line lasers. Beyond that, it’s the setup speed highlighting this model. It’s not just one thing that improves the process, though, it’s the combination of its features.

LEDs on the front and back give you a visual aid no matter which side of the detector you’re on. The front LCD display boasts highly visible arrows to let you know where your line is compared to your target. There’s also an audio alert with high and low settings to complete the package (you can also turn it off if you don’t need it).
