Trimble Introduces New Versatile Laser Tool for Construction Applications


DENVER, April 23, 2010 — Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today a new addition to its industry-leading line of laser tools—the Spectra Precision® 5.2XL Point and CrossLine Laser. The versatile automatic self-leveling laser tool can be used in a wide variety of construction applications.

The announcement was made today at INTEX EXPO 2010, a premiere interior and exterior commercial construction show.

The Spectra Precision 5.2XL Point and CrossLine Laser combine two products in one—a 5 beam laser pointer and a horizontal and vertical crossline laser—making it an economical laser tool for contractors.

For interior building and remodeling, the laser is used for horizontal and vertical alignment, wall layout, acoustic ceiling installation, point transfer up and down, wall and floor tiling, finish carpentry, and 90 degree squaring. The 5.2XL laser is as easy-to-use as a hand tool and can supplant a level, square, plumb bob, chalk line, and optical instrument.

With the addition of the Spectra Precision HR250 Handheld Receiver, the 5.2XL is also ideal for short-range exterior general leveling and alignment tasks including elevation checks for decks, pools, septic tank installation, masonry work, and landscaping.

Automatic self-leveling assures accuracy and fast setup. Bright points and crossline beams assure easy viewing in all conditions. The 150 degree vertical line intersects with the plumb up point for fast plumb alignment. The included magnetic universal mount, adapter, and ceiling and floor target extend the versatility of the tool.

The tool is rugged with a protective rubber over-molding and is designed to withstand drops of up to 3 feet (1 m). Water and dust resistance also improve reliability.

The 5.2XL Point and CrossLine Laser is available now through Trimble's Construction Tools Dealer Network.
