Laser question what do you think

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.
