Question about Dewalt Self-Leveling Line Laser Horizontal&Vertical - DW087K

1 Answer

DW087K hello, I bought brand new DW087K. I tried to operate and I was wonder-struck that laser beam thickness is not the same at different distances. For example, I put DW087K 7 m 40cm from the opposite wall, and siwtched on horizontal laser, the thickness of the beam was about 9 mm - 10 mm and the beam was not clear, blur. Is this normal? then I tried to put from the opposite wall at a distance of 2 m. the laser beam thickness was normal about 1 or 2 mm and the laser beam was clear. It was outside, temprature was +10 C, battery indicator was ok. I tried also indoor, distance was 5 meters, but the thickness was about 4-6 mm, and near the DW087k the thickness was ok. Where could be the problem?

This is one of the cheeper lasers and is designed for predominantly indoor use this Dewalt DW087K unit has a visibility range of 14 yards. Although from experience they do drain the batteries quicker than you would think and cause the laser to be hard to see as well. Hope it works for you!!
