Slope Laser Level for setting Grade
When wanting to set a grade or gradient its much quicker to use a slope laser level. A slope laser allows the user to set one or both axis on a predetermined slope or grade. The operator can then use the receiver to pick up this constant grade along the axis that it is set.
There are three main ways a Slope laser level can set a grade.
Manual Grade Setting is where, with the use of a remote control, you can slope up or down the plane of the beam on one or both of its axis.
Digital Grade Setting is where you can input the percentage grade required directly into the level. The laser then automatically sets the desired slope on the selected axis.
Auto Grade Match Tracking
Auto Grade Match Tracking is a feature by RedBack lasers where you can set the height of the receiver and have the laser auto slope up or down tracking to the height of the receiver and locking on.
Some RedBack Grade / Slope Lasers feature one or more method of setting grade. Note all manual grade models by RedBack Lasers utilise an included remote control allowing single person grade setting. Some brands with a grade/ slope feature need two people to operate as they do not have a remote e.g. Topcon RL-H5A.
A Rotating / Rotary laser level with slope features is ideal for all manner of Drainage, Plumbing, Earth moving and Concreting Applications. For occasional Slope / Grade requirement a laser with manual grade match would be fine. If you are setting grades on a more regular basis then a Auto Grade Match or Digital Grade Slope laser level would be the best fit.
