Product overview:

Coming April 2019

The CR700 Detector is ideal for contractors doing both site preparation and general construction. It can be either staff or machine mounted, making it ideal for a wide range of applications. Using the magnetic mount, the CR700 detector is easily moved between backhoes, small excavators, box blades or skid steer loaders. With such a high degree of flexibility, the CR700 is made tough enough for any job.


Designed for tough construction site conditions.

Rugged, magnesium housing can withstand a drop of up to 3 m (10 ft) on concrete. 
Super-bright coloured LED elevation indicators visibly indicate grade elevation information to the operator—even in poor light and up to 100 m (350 ft) in bright sunlight. 
Adjustable bandwidth lets the operator tighten the on-grade band to easily meet a variety of accuracy requirements with tighter tolerances from rough grading through form leveling. 
Wrap around detector cells with continuous pickup through an operating range of 270° provide less dead spots and improved productivity, especially for machine applications. 
Longer, above-grade detector cells make digging with a back hoe easier than ever.

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.
