SPECTRA PRECISION WARRANTY (From October 1, 2017) - 2 year "No Cost” warranty

The new worldwide warranty program—effective October 1, 2017—provides expanded “No Cost” warranty coverage for many products including the Spectra HV101.

Year 1 & Year 2: Free replacement instrument giving full cover against defects due to material & workmanship (parts & labour).

The new warranty policy cannot be applied retrospectively to products sold prior to October 1, 2017. The old policy will remain in effect for these products - see below.

SPECTRA PRECISION WARRANTY (Prior to October 1, 2017) - 3 year limited

The HV101 is backed by the industry's only 3-year instant over-the-counter Exchange Warranty.

Year 1: Free replacement instrument giving full cover against defects due to material & workmanship (parts & labour).

Year 2: Limited cover against defects due to material & workmanship. We will provide a replacement NEW instrument for a supplemental payment of £300 + vat.

Year 3: Limited cover against defects due to material & workmanship. We will provide a replacement NEW instrument for a supplemental payment of £300 + vat.

Optional accessories are also covered on a similar basis:

Laser Detector HR320  - Free for Year 1 & Year 2,  with a supplemental payment of £75 +vat for Year 3.

*Warranty period commences from the date of receipt of the equipment*

Please note: The Tripod & Staff are not covered by the 2 Year Warranty. Please see individual product listing for their respective warranty period.

Included in the kit:

Looking for the HV101 with the full length System Case otherwise known as the "gun / guitar" case?

The case that is included in our kits is the smaller "briefcase" style. Not the larger "gun / guitar" / system case style. We did used to sell the larger system case as an option but what we were finding is that if the kit has got wet on site then it's easy to dry off the laser and store dry. If you have the larger case which also stores the tripod and staff it's very hard to dry a wet and dirty tripod and staff and so we now only sell the smaller case which doesn’t store the tripod and staff.

Also included in the kit:

The Spectra Precision HV101 Kit also includes the following:


Telescopic Levelling Staff (Model: TLS4S)

(Colours / Brand may vary)

4m, 5-section, Telescopic Levelling Staff. 
Five robust aluminium sections with abrasion proof scale.
Closed length height 970mm, extending to maximum height of 4m.

Millimetre scale on back and E-graduations (1cm) markings on front
Rear mm scale (for use with laser levels) has ZERO mm marking at ground level.
Red / Black coded front sections.
Accepts all Laser detector mounting brackets.
Removable, rear mounted circular Bubble Level.
Carry sleeve.
Height: 0.97m closed length to extended max 4m. 
Weight 1.15kg.


Surveying Tripod (Model: S-LAT)

(Colours / Brand may vary and may have branding on tripod leg)

Maximum 1.5m height. 
Robust aluminium tripod. 
Extending legs with quick-release, toggle clamp adjustment. 
Flat top, mounting head. 
Head size 130mm
5/8 inch x 11 thread. 
Closed length 0.925m
Max. Opened height 1.5m approx.

Purchase options:

Upgrade the kit to include the Spectra HL450 Detector


The Spectra Precision HL450 Detector is an easy-to-use tool that accurately measures elevations across the site, and is ideal for use with any rotating laser level.

The HL450 features a digital readout of elevation that provides a numeric display of ±40 mm to 1mm resolution. The readout is displayed on the large front and rear LCD's and shows exactly how far the elevation is from on-grade.

Accurate measurements can be made without moving the rod clamp, saving time and increasing productivity.

The HL450 has a 102 mm (4 inch) reception height, double the typical industry standard, which allows quick acquisition of the laser beam. Also included is a patented anti-strobe sensor that prevents construction lights from setting off the Detector and makes it easier to identify the laser beam signals.

The Detector is designed to survive the tough construction site conditions. It is totally waterproof (IP67) and can withstand a drop up to 1.5 meters (5 feet) onto concrete.



Digital Readout of Elevation allows faster readings by displaying the exact numerical distance from grade, eliminating the need to move the detector to get to "on-grade".
Anti-Strobe Sensor stops construction strobe lights from setting off the detector and eliminates phantom strikes for easier identification of true laser beam signals.
Large reception height allows faster readings by acquiring the beam quickly, and makes it easier to stay in the beam.
Durable in tough environments provides less downtime due to damage or service requirements after accidental drops.


HL450 Detector upgrade includes:

HL450 instrument
Alkaline batteries x 2
Mounting bracket
Instruction & safety manual
3 Year Warranty

Please Note: If you upgrade to the HL450 Detector, the default HR320 Detector will be removed from the kit.

Product Comparison:

Please note: Some features listed are only available using optional accessories.

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.

Kit comprises of:

HV101 Rotary Laser Level (checked and pre-calibrated)
HR320 Laser Detector, Staff mounting bracket & Batteries (Option to upgrade to HL450 Laser Detector)
2 type 'D' Duracell alkaline batteries
Adjustable wall mount M101

4m Measuring Staff
Red Magnetic Target 1176
Red Laser Enhancement Glasses
Laser site sign
Safety & User Instruction Guide

Hi, Will the spectra hv101 cast cross laser lines for internal use! Looking for a laser that can do the majority of laser applications in one! Internal and external work Thanks


  • Posted by Laser Levels Online - Support on Thursday 26th of July 2018

    Hello Elliott,

    Thank you for your message.

    No, the Spectra HV101 is a rotary laser and so although it can give you a horizontal datum and be laid on it's side to give you a vertical datum it cannot do both datums simultaneously. 

    A better option for you would be the Stanley X3G. This gives the most simultaneous datums and can be paired with the LD200G Detector giving you a range of 60m outside. Although there are a couple of limitation with this laser, it is the best "all-rounder".

    You can see the Stanley X3G here:

    I hope this helps.

    Best regards

Will the spectra hv101 premium kit work with the spectra cr600 detector? Thanks


  • Posted by Laser Levels Online - Support on Thursday 29th of September 2016

    Hi Elliot,

    Thank you for your message.

    Yes, the Spectra CR600 will work with any red beam Spectra Laser e.g, HV101, HV302, LL100N & LL300N.

    I hope this helps.

Hi, Is the Spectra HV101 the right level for us, we build swimming pools and do hard landscaping. So many to choose from don't want to make a mistake. Thanks Mark


  • Posted by Laser Levels Online - Support on Wednesday 21st of September 2016

    Hi Mark,

    Thank you for your message.

    Your best options would either be the Fukuda FRE-301R or the Spectra HV101.
    These products can be seen here:
    Fukuda FRE-301R
    Spectra HV101
    These lasers are multi-function instruments and so will level on the horizontal, vertical, square at 90deg and set slopes and gradients and can be used inside and outside.
    Both instruments have the same level of accuracy (±3mm @ 30m) and the same range (300m diameter). The Fukuda is a midrange laser brand where as the spectra is a premium brand. The Fukuda is rechargeable where as the Spectra uses alkaline batteries.
    In simple terms, these are the types of lasers that what ever the building project throws at you, they have a multitude of functions to meet your needs.
    The Spectra is a complete kit but the Fukuda does not include a tripod and staff as standard. If you do not currently have a tripod and staff - budget around about and extra £80.00 or so depending on the spec.
    Alternatively, (and largely depending on your budget), if the HV101 looks a great option but you want it to be rechargable, even better accuracy, even tougher and have a 5 year warranty then the big brother of the HV101 - the HV302 is another great option.
    I hope this helps.
    If you have any further questions or require any additional assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.
    Best regards

my company installs temporary warehouse buildings and these can sometimes be 80m wide x 100m long can you recommend a laser level kit that would cover this area, obviously the laser could be set up in the middle making the distances to be covered 40 and 50m


  • Posted by Laser Levels Online - Support on Friday 14th of February 2014

    Hi Bill,

    Yes, the Spectra HV101 Standard Indoor & Outdoor Kit would be the most suitable laser for your application as it levels on the Horizontal, Vertical and does Setting out  / squaring. You would require the "Standard Indoor & Outdoor Kit" version as it includes a detector which is critical for use outdoors.


    If you have any further questions or require any additional assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • Posted by Laser Levels Online - Support on Monday 10th of February 2014

    Hi Tony,

    The HV101 Standard Indoor & Outdoor Kit would be the most suitable.

    However, you might also want to consider the Fukuda FRE-301R:

    Alternatively, if you envisage doing a mix of interior and exterior, then the FRE-301G:
