1. Don't buy the cheapest one you can buy. Look for a rotating construction that is easy to use to use, accurate, can handle getting wet and can be serviced if needed.
2. Always purchase an automatic leveling laser. For example a Leica Rugby 610 or a Rugby 810 laser. The manual lasers are a real hassle and will just end up getting you in trouble on your jobsite. Auto leveling lasers are the only ones you should buy.
3. When you purchase a construction rotating laser, purchase a good tripod for the laser. Just setting the laser on a bucket, is an accident waiting to happen.
4 Look at the type of batteries that run the laser. Are they only alkaline, nicad or li-ion batteries. Can you buy a auto charger to charge up the batteries? A car/truck charger is a great accessory that many contractors really like.
5. Service and follow up down the road are very important when you purchase a construction rotating laser. A good laser dealer can check calibration for you if your laser is mishandled or dropped. That can save you both time and money down the road.
