We are the main UK Distributors for the FUKUDA brand of laser levels, where the FRE-205 is by far the most popular in their range. We have been selling it for many years and these kits have proved to have a very good reliability record.

The FRE-205 is a horizontal levelling laser which has been designed specifically for exterior Groundworks but at a very affordable price. It is constructed with a rugged housing and has an automatic drift system (bump sensor), together with the facility to Dual Grade; making this the laser of choice for Groundworks Contractors working to a budget.

Included in this special DUO kit is an EK-112R Cross line laser to cover most indoor work. Its auto levelling has very bright red beams & is supplied with an "L" shaped, magnetic mounting bracket (for wall mounting etc). This combination has proved to be very popular even for Groundworkers who have found the Crossline laser useful for other indoor tasks.


Rotary Laser Level:

The FRE-205 auto levels horizontally; is accurate to +/-3mm over 30m and has a 500 metre range, using the supplied laser detector.
For site Groundworks use, the laser has a dual grade facility too. Switch off the auto levelling by pressing the Manual button on the remote control. This enables the User to accurately and easily set slopes (grades) in both X and Y axis, as required.
Note: If you need a True Grade laser (where you key in grade values), see model FRE-203XT.
The FRE-205 kit also includes a 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 a distance without the laser level being disturbed.
Note: Outdoors, we recommend setting the rotating speed to maximum (600rpm) to give the best operating distance & stability, when using the detector. For User convenience, the FRE-205 can operate on either the 4pc x 'AA' Ni-MH rechargeable batteries (supplied) or 4pc standard 'AA' alkaline batteries. 


Cross Line Laser:

The EK-112R auto levels quickly & accurately; giving a fine, very bright, red laser cross - ideal for both horizontal & vertical setting-out. Both beams can be switched On & Off independently.
A transit latch protects the mechanism (to avoid transportation damage) and the case is surrounded by a black rubber cover for worksite protection.
It comes with a very handy multi-function magnetic "L" shaped bracket which acts as an All-in-One system: a wall mounting Bracket & a 5/8" tripod Adapter. This gives the User the choice of mounting the laser onto a tripod or a Floor to Ceiling Pole with either 1/4" or 5/8" threads. (Please see our Accessories section for various Pole Kits.)


This "2 in 1" DUO package covers both indoor & outdoor groundworks applications, for the General builder.
All in all, its a very versatile & popular kit.

Technical specification

+/- 3mm @ 30 metres, max. operating diameter 500m (250m either side of the instrument).
An accuracy of +/- 3mm @ 30 metres is equivalent to 0.1 mm/m and to put that into perspective, the best premium German spirit level has an accuracy of +/- 0.5 mm/m or +/- 15mm @ 30 metres.

Dual Grade facility:

Dual axis X and Y axis up to +/-9% (1 in 11.1)

Both X & Y axis can be set to give a maximum fall of up to 0.9m at 10m distance away. (ie. 1 in 11.1 & +/-9% grade)

Wow, received delivery of this item today and immediately carried out a 2 peg test on it. Super impressed. Over 30m this thing showed zero deviation. Strangely the two points I picked on our floor are exactly the same level - coincidence but my first two readings from level position one were 1566 &1566, my second two readings from level position two were 1556 & 1556. I like that this unit just takes standard AA's also as it means it can be stored away for long periods minus its batteries and whenever it gets called into service just pop some new AA's into it. Delivery was super quick to Ireland, well done to all at laser levels online.

Upgrade options

Upgrade the kit to include the Fukuda FRD800R Detector - The perfect choice for the Fukuda FRE-205!


Fukuda Lasers have developed a "top of the range" detector for the Professional Tradesperson 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 levelling 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 the 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.

Built for professionals

Fukuda is a fantastic mid-range laser brand which offers a lot of features for your money.

Although it may not be a brand you have immediately heard of (although that is changing as it's popularity grows), it's lasers and internals can be found in models which are sold under an array of different brand names around the world, including IMEX, PLS, Haupar, Draper, MCE Rotec, Linestorm, Powerline, Lasertec, General, Swiss+Level, TUF, Lamigo, BMI UNILASER, Geotop and CPI.

I have worked in the construction industry for over 25 years dealing with hundreds of suppliers, the quality of their products is fantastic, the delivery is next day so you can't complain about that and the customer service is second to none, if you need a leveling tool don't bother going anywhere else.
