    Do you use a electronic level or manual calculations. I have been doing it manually but I am looking at SmartTool's electronic level.

    Ideas, Comments?

    Manual for the most part, but we've also got a grade laser, so it's as easy as punching in the appropriate grade when needed. :)

    what kind of grade laser do you have? I'm looking at getting a CST/Berger LMH600PKG. Any familiarity with that unit by chance?

    It's a Topcon, not sure what model number.

    From what I understand, the CST/Berger's can be a real PITA to get serviced if they need it. We've got a servicing Topcon dealer less than an hour away, and they have loaners. I believe CST's need to be sent back to the factory (Chicago?) to be serviced, and if you aren't working through a dealer, good luck getting a loaner. Check into this pretty hard before you buy one.
