A top-of-the-range model in the Fukuda Laser level family, available at a very competitive price.
The FRE-208 is a TRUE GRADE laser where the User can easily input the exact % of slope required, digitally. The instrument will then simply set the laser beam to that slope. This can be in one axis only (single grade) or in two axis X & Y for dual grading. A radio linked Remote Control with a 50m range makes this quick & easy.
The laser also has plumb up & plumb down, red laser dot beams. By mounting the instrument on its side, (called lay-down) this gives a squaring facility. ie. 90 degree setting out - a very useful feature.
Constructed with a robust, waterproof housing, an automatic drift system and the facility of radio controlled Dual grade - has made this the Grade laser of choice for Groundworks Contractors.
The FRE-208 is also suitable for indoor use, where the rotating speed can be reduced to improve visibility of the laser beam by eye; together with a concentrated beam, SCAN facility.
General builders, groundworkers, roofers and others often need to calculate slope or at least they must have some understanding of it.
Slope, grade, tilt or inclination can be expressed in three ways:
1) As a ratio of the rise height to the run length (for example 1 in 20) or equally in terms of the fall height to the run length.
2) As a percentage called the "grade" which is the (rise ÷ run) x 100; eg. 1m rise ÷ 20m run x 100 = 5% (instead of rise can read fall ).
3) As an angle (almost always in degrees)
Of these 3 ways, Slope is normally expressed as a ratio or a percentage grade much more often than an actual angle and here's the reason why.....
Stating a ratio such as 1 in 20 immediately tells you, that for every 20 horizontal units measured, your height changes by 1 unit.
Stating this as a percentage, whatever horizontal distance you measure, your height changes by 5% of that distance.
Stating this as an angle of 2.8624 degrees doesn't give you much of an idea of how the rise compares to the run!">
The FRE-208 (auto) self-levels horizontally & vertically, is accurate to +/-3mm over 30m & has a 500 metre diameter range using the supplied laser detector.
For site Groundworks use, this is a TRUE GRADE laser. Simply input the slope % directly within the range +10% to -10% of fall. This enables the User to accurately and easily set slopes (grades) in both X and Y axis, as required, with high precision and stability.
The kit includes a Radio Remote Control - to enable you to adjust the rotating speed (for indoor work) and outdoors - to set Grades (slopes), as described above. A very useful feature, which allows control from distance without the laser level being disturbed. Note: Outdoors: set the rotating speed to maximum (600rpm) to give the best operating distance with the supplied detector.
A rechargeable battery pack system is built-in and as back-up, the FRE-208 will operate on normal alkaline batteries too. We always keep spare rechargeable batteries in stock as part of our Spares, Repairs & full Calibration service.

News: Laser Levels Online have announced the introduction of an extension to their Fukuda rotary laser level warranty. As of 15/10/2015, all Fukuda branded rotary laser levels, now come with a 2 years parts and labour warranty. Customers are already confident in Fukuda's high quality products, but now have the added confidence of a two year parts and labour warranty as well. Fukuda rotary lasers purchased prior to 15/10/2015 are covered by a 1 year warranty. Fukuda cross line laser warranties remain unchanged.
Calibration and servicing:
If you routinely work on large job sites, which require you to have a physical Calibration certificate, issued in your name and matched to the Laser via its serial number, you must ensure you tick the above box marked "Paper Certificate" (where applicable) to add a Calibration certificate to your order. The Certificate will then be generated and included with your Laser. Please note the issuing of a Calibration certificate DOES NOT delay or hold up the despatch of your Laser in any way.
