how does everyone feel about this laser for small grading work and lawn install\landscape design work. I'm looking for something self leveling and that calculates slope.
are there any other reccomendations in this price range

I have 2 Topcon lasers. I've had them almost 5 years now and they have been great.

I'm pretty sure that laser won't "calculate" slope. I think all of the cheap lasers need to be manually tilted to get a slope in one direction.

Ya it won't calculate but I think I made a decision that I'm gonna start with manual for now then move up to an auto slope

The CST is crap.

This is the best cheap laser I could find. I have used it for 100's of hours.

I ended up ordering a new h4c on eBay tonight with freeshipping for $685 my local dealer told me $685 but can't get one for atleast a week or more. I plan on using it
Next week quite a bit so hopefully all works out. Sorry about any grammar I'm typing on my phone at work
