A new, affordable series of lasers and levels – 2LS (tools) – is now available. The 2LS brand is designed to bridge the gap between do-it-yourself lasers and industrial quality lasers, levels and surveying instruments used on large construction and civil engineering projects. As a member of the Topcon Group of brands, 2LS products incorporate advanced features not available in other builder-type laser and optical products.
For almost a decade, Topcon Positioning Systems’ Millimeter GPS™ with LazerZone™ has been a standard for accuracy and productivity in grading and asphalt paving.
