Bosch GLR225 laser distance measurer
By Anthony Capkun
Bosch Measuring Tools introduced the latest addition to its line of laser measuring tools. The GLR225 promises versatility and “best-in-class accuracy in a package small enough to fit in a pocket or tool pouch”. The unit has a range of up to 230 ft and an accuracy of 0.06 in. at 33 ft. For added versatility, the GLR225 gives you the flexibility of measuring from four distinct reference points: from the front or back of the laser, from a 1/16-in. threaded tripod mount, or from a swing-out extension pin. It can calculate measurements in seven different modes: length, area, volume, minimum/maximum, continuous, indirect length and multi-surface area. After measuring, the unit can show results in inches, feet/inches, decimal feet and metric. It comes with a soft belt-loop case, hand strap and four AAA batteries. Optional accessories include laser view-enhancing glasses (DLA001) and a laser view-enhancing target (DLA002).
