Bosch GLR500 and GLR825 laser range finders
By Anthony Capkun
Bosch Measuring Tools is introducing two additions to its lineup of laser range finding tools that bring the company into the long-range laser measuring category: the GLR500 and GLR825. The units are capable of measuring over extended distances (825 ft for the GLR825, 500 ft for the GLR500) and remain accurate to within 1 mm. As with previous models, these measurers offer the flexibility of measuring from one of four distinct points: from the front or back of the laser, from a 1/16-in. threaded tripod mount, or from a swing-out extension pin. New to the GLR500 and the GLR825 is the capability of delivering 11 distinct types of measurements (versus seven on the GLR225): length, area, volume, minimum/maximum, continuous, indirect length, double indirect, combined indirect, stake out, trapezoid, multi-surface area and timed measurement. To help you keep track, both tools have enough built-in memory to store up to 30 individual measurements and results.
