    I always do the whole string line setup. I am looking to make life easier and get a laser. Any input on types that work. Everything I do is excavating.

    Check out ziplevel, one man operation. Works awesome!

    Bosch grl500hck, I don’t use mine everyday but it is an awesome little laser. Only down fall is that you have to charge the target on the base,instead of the Spectra lasers where you just swap batteries. 32C79E4D-8701-405F-9480-F0345E4D79B0.jpeg

    This used to be on my wish list, do you have one? I saw the video before and it looks pretty awesome. I had my laser stolen a year ago and went to buy a new one at the local survey supply house. I asked about the zip level, as they had them for sale as well. They talked me out of it, saying I was much better off with a laser level than a zip level. Can't remember all the reasons, but they said getting it re calibrated every year is an expensive hassle, as you have to send it in to the company.
    P.S. the laser levels are also a one-man operation...

    A level with grade abilities is worth it. Yiu can adjust x and y axis to pitch pipe and patios etc. If ur on a budget check craigslist theres always a few by me. I have 2 that I got super cheap that way. Years ago my first one was manual leveling I would never buy another again. The self leveling models are worth the cost upgrade

    Honestly I got a a relatively cheap set from home Depot a while back. Works well for what it is, shoots accurate just no bells and whistles.

    I've got a cheapish Bosch model and find all kinds of used for it. I've done a small patio, decks, interior tile work, hanging light fixtures, and grading for a wall foundation.
