Kobalt distance measurer

Postby GroundquestMSA » May 21, 2013 12:09 am

As an extra, or for anyone who needs a low cost instrument, I recommend the Kobalt LDM-35.
Available at Lowe's for $69 and online for less
Range of 115'
Gave consistently identical readings as Bosch GLM50 and GLR225
Lifetime Warranty

I've had no trouble with it so far. While the warranty won't be a huge comfort if it breaks and stops your survey, Lowe's (and possibly other retailers) is very good about replacing Kobalt stuff.

With the Lowes military discount this is a total steal.
