Product overview:

The Fukuda FRE-203XR is accurate, well-featured & competitively priced. It replaces the extremely reliable Fukuda FRE-301R, to which it shares many of its internal components. It builds upon this foundation to incorporate many new features and improvements. This is currently the only model in the Fukuda range which is extremely robust, having a drop-test specification of 1 metre onto concrete. The top glass "lighthouse" is protected by a metal die cast cover whilst a robust roll cage adds increased durability.

Its a professional laser level kit from the Fukuda Laser Company. They are specialists in their field of laser level manufacture & certified to ISO-9001.


The FRE-203XR quickly auto levels to set horizontals, verticals and 90 degree site squaring. An invaluable feature.


In addition, this laser can be switched to Manual mode where the spinning beam can set a grade (fall) in the X axis, Y axis or both together (dual grade).

You can only grade match with this system and not key in a value, however it will set up to a 1:10 (10%) grade.


For Indoor & Outdoor use with a 635nm, class II red laser
Sealed water-proof construction (IP66)
Self-levelling both horizontally & vertically
Up and Down dot for setting Plumb & groundworks squaring
Accurate 3 axis electronic sensor

One metre drop test specification onto concrete
IR control via handheld Remote
Anti-Drift system (Bump sensor)
Dual Grade & SCAN facility
Auto shut-off - if instrument goes outside of its levelling range
Low battery indication
Rechargeable battery system

Spare alkaline battery pack
Full 36 months parts & labour Warranty

You have the facility to totally stop or move the red dot slowly in either direction using the remote control. Rotational speed is adjustable in 4 increments up to max. of 600 rpm.

For Indoor use, the SCAN facility comes into its own. This enables the User to stop the dot, then make it oscillate as a short intense red line in one area of the room only. Left/right keys on the remote control moves this laser line to the exact area of working. A really useful feature.


DUAL Axis Grading:

You can keep XX axis auto level, whilst setting a Grade (tilt angle) on the YY axis. This is helpful for setting falls of drainage, car-parks & access ways. Or you can set grades in both axis together (ie. DUAL Grade facility).

Additionally, a perfectly plumb laser dot is generated above & below the instrument via the prism system. With the instrument set on its side to spin vertically, these dots can be used to set 90 degree right angles for groundworks site Squaring etc.


Horizontal accuracy: +/- 2.8mm over 30 metres (+/-20 arc seconds)
Vertical accuracy: +/- 2.8mm over 30 metres (+/20 arc seconds)

Upgrade the kit to include the Fukuda FRD800R Detector - The perfect choice for the Fukuda FRE-203XR!


Fukuda Lasers have developed a "top of the range" detector for the Professional Trades person which is easy-to-use and accurate. It is ideal for use with any brand of rotating red beam laser level.


The FRD800R Laser Detector is a highly versatile, well featured laser receiver for both basic and advanced leveling and aligning applications; designed for general, concrete and site preparation contractors.


It features a digital readout of elevation that provides a numeric display of +/-45mm to 1mm resolution. Accurate measurements can be made without moving the rod clamp, saving time and increasing productivity. The readout is displayed on large front and rear LCD's, showing exactly how far the elevation is from on-grade. A back-light assists readings in low ambient lighting. 


Selectable units of measurement can be displayed to meet your specific application: in mm, cm or inches. A 125mm long red pick-up window, more than double the industry standard, allows quick acquisition of the laser beam. Readings are shown in three ways: via back and front LCD, coloured LED indication and by audible sound, selectable loud/normal/off.


This detector is designed to survive tough construction site conditions, being water and dustproof to IP55.


It can be used as either a hand-held or staff mounted detector for a wide range of construction applications.



Digital readout of elevation to +/-45mm, so not only will high or low arrows be displayed, but the exact distance from grade will also be numerically displayed. This eliminates the need to get exactly "on-grade" to make measurements, thus speeding up setting-out.

Large 125mm reception height acquires the beam quickly and makes it easy to stay in the beam.

Simultaneous elevation LED's signal in low light levels and over a longer range for easier reading in poor light conditions.

Multiple deadband sensitivity settings, three in all, allows adaptation to meet all your jobsite requirements.

Dust and weatherproof housing to IP55.

Continuous usage, 40 hours battery life with auto switch off facility.


FRD800R Detector upgrade includes:

FRD800R instrument

4 x type AA alkaline batteries 

Mounting clamp bracket

Instruction & safety manual

Please Note: If you upgrade to the FRD800R Detector, the default Detector will be removed from the kit.


Calibration and servicing:

We check and calibrate all Lasers prior to dispatch, to ensure they meet or exceed the manufacturers published specifications at the time of shipment from the factory.
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.

Calibrated Fukuda FRE-203XR Laser instrument 
Laser Detector with mounting clamp bracket (Option to upgrade to Fukuda FRD800R with Digital Readout mm / inch)

Can this laser be used to square out houses on the foundation when doing footings


  • Posted by Laser Levels Online - Support on Monday 8th of July 2019

    Hi Patrick,

    Thank you for your message.

    The Fukuda FRE-203XR is a multi-function rechargeable, fully self-levelling rotary laser level which has an accuracy of ±2.8mm @ 30m and can level on the horizontal, vertically and square at 90deg with a range of 500m diameter. It also has the ability to set slopes and gradients. It is a general use laser for all trades and so will be ideal for all types of groundworks, foundations footings and setting out.

    A guide on how to square with a rotary laser can be seen here:

    Best regards
