New Economical Laser for Interior Applications and General Construction from Trimble

Durable, Easy-to-Operate Horizontal and Vertical Rotating Laser with Plumb Capability

SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 2, 2008 — Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) today introduced the new Spectra Precision® Laser HV101 multi-purpose laser. The laser is a rugged, cost-effective horizontal and vertical laser used for a variety of interior and general construction applications.

Positioned as an entry-level laser, the Spectra Precision Laser HV101 is highly intuitive, requiring minimal training. The laser offers fully-automatic electronic self-leveling in both horizontal and vertical planes. Its visible beam can be pointed or rotated at four preset speeds, and the scanning functions are designed to make it easier for the contractor to perform interior layout and aligning.

The composite material housing of the Spectra Precision Laser HV101 is rugged, lightweight, and weather resistant, making it easy for a contractor to carry and use in demanding jobsite conditions. The robust design allows the unit to be dropped up to 3 feet (1 meter) onto concrete and still remain functional. A remote control is included allowing operation of key functions over the jobsite.

The Spectra Precision Laser HV101 is available in two basic configurations. The Interior Package is for installing ceiling grids, locating finished floor levels, laying out interior walls, and checking counter and cupboard elevations. The Universal Package includes the Interior Package components plus the HR150 receiver and rod clamp. It is designed for outdoor leveling, establishing vertical alignments and squaring / maintaining layout requirements on residential and small commercial construction projects. Accessories can be added to either package to customize the product�s configuration for meeting the specific needs of the contractor.

The new Spectra Precision Laser HV101 horizontal and vertical laser is available now through Trimble's Construction Tools and Building Construction dealer network.
