DEWALT has announced that they will introducing a new line of green laser levels that are compatible with their 12V MAX* and 20V MAX* cordless power tool battery systems. In addition to being DEWALT’S first-ever green lasers to be compatible with both battery platforms, the new lasers also feature compelling user-friendly features.
These are also DEWALT’s first green spot and line lasers that are capable of being powered by the 20V MAX* platform.
Features common to the entire lineup include:
- 12V MAX*/20V MAX* battery compatibility (up to 8.0Ah)
- Green laser technology for high visibility
- Over-molded housing
- Magnetic base
- Battery state of charge indicator
- Tripod threads
- Fine adjustment knob
- Locking pendulum
- Pivoting laser head
- TSTAK-compatible tool boxes for kits and bare tools
The new lineup features (4) new laser products:
- 3×360° Line Laser (DCLE34030G / DCLE34030GB)
- Cross Line Laser (DCLE34020G / DCLE34020GB)
- Cross Line 5 Spot Laser (DCLE34520G / DCLE34520GB)
- 2 Spot Laser (DCLE34220G / DCLE34220GB)
The G suffix denotes the kit configuration, while the GB denotes the tool-only configuration where the battery and charger are sold separately. Each laser comes with a DEWALT 20V MAX* 2.0Ah battery, 20V MAX*/12V MAX* charger, wall mount bracket, target card, and TSTAK storage system-compatible tool box.
We have been working with the new 3×360° laser as part of a paid sponsorship with DEWALT, and will discuss it in more depth separately. In the meantime, here are some of the key features shared by all four of the new lasers.
Fine Adjust Knob – allows for fine-tuning vertical beams along the horizontal axis for efficiency and productivity.
20V MAX* and 12V MAX* Compatibility.
Up to 10 Hours Per Charge – for the 3×360° laser on average when powered with a 2.0Ah battery with all 3 laser lines in use.
Compatible with most DEWALT 20V MAX* Batteries up to 8Ah.
The integrated magnets are strong, there are more of them than in preceding models, and they’re distributed across a greater height.
IP54 Rated – “provides some level of protection from dust (limited ingress) and liquids (light splashing) during normal and reasonably foreseeable use.” This applies to the lasers but not the battery or charger.
