PLS 180G laser Review

The PLS 180G is a pro-grade self-leveling, cross line laser level that comes in both red and green.

I was impressed with the Kit, what was included, how robust the laser body was and most importantly how crisp and bright the green laser was.

The PLS 180G Kit has an IP 54 rating. The two digits classifies the degrees of protection provided against the intrusion into the tool enclosure.

• 5 = Limited protection against dust ingress.
• 4= Protected against splash water from any direction.

The PLS 180G laser is rated for 1/8” at 30-feet.

We tested accuracy at 30-feet confirming plumb and level lines with a Stabilia level that was also checked for accuracy.

It comes with a magnetic L-bracket, and the UB9 Universal Wall/Ceiling.

This PLS 180G laser is powered by 3AA batteries and is rated for a 3 hour plus runtime. We found this to be an accurate rating.

Over the last two or three years I’ve gotten the chance to review a dozen or so lasers and have come to the conclusion that I have a preference for green lasers.

Studies have shown green appears up to four times brighter than red to the human eye, which makes the lasers more visible on the jobsite.”

It’s hard NOT to love the sharp, crisp green lines. Their easy to see and really bright. I like the PLS Velcro protective case and all of the mounting options that come in the kit.

This PLS laser also has a receiver which will be helpful in bright environments.
The PLS 180G laser kit sells for $422.

For us, the biggest pet peeve with lasers is having to use disposable batteries.
It’s always a pain when we pull out our laser from the trailer and the battery is dead or only lasts a short while.

The devil advocate would argue that with AA batteries you can always get them. I’m not in that camp.

I’d like to see PLS come out with a rechargeable unit or batteries.
Maybe they can partner with a tool company and utilize their battery.

PLS laser levels are backed by a three-year warranty with same-day replacement by local dealers to minimize downtime.

These lasers new additions made a good laser even better, no doubt.

The green lines are super bright and crisp – its BEST feature!  

These new models are now more robust and job-site durable, and should give you years of reliable service.
