Milwaukee M12 Single Plane Laser Boasts Improved Runtime and Visibility
Ask any building Pro and they’ll tell you that there are very few tools more important than a reliable level. The basic function has remained unchanged throughout the years but, over time, the design has undergone major advancements to improve accuracy and overall functionality. Adding to the Milwaukee Cross Line laser levels lineup, Milwaukee introduces the M12 Green Single Plane Laser claiming more power, visibility, and versatility than previous models.
Milwaukee M12 Single Plane Laser Performance
- Model: Milwaukee 3631
- Power Source: Milwaukee M12 battery
- Accuracy: +/- 1/8 in.
- Working Range: 125 ft.
- Working Range with Detector: 165 ft.
- Runtime: 30 hrs. (with M12 4.0Ah battery)
This M12 laser level offers all-day runtime capabilities as well as class-leading long-range visibility. Its overall runtime is a big step up from other M12 multi-plane lasers that usually top out around 15 hours of continuous runtime.
Green lasers tend to consume more power since they project a more intense beam than their red counterparts. The plus side is that this laser’s high-vis beam makes it a great option for long-range applications up to 125 feet with the naked eye and 165 feet with a laser detector. That kind of range makes it a great option for most residential
