    Just wondering if any of you lot use laser levels and have any recommendations.
    I've only ever seen a Dewalt one I was very impressed, idealy I would like to spend less than that though as I do maybe 2 small tiling jobs a year.

    I have a Leica but if anything happened to it I wouldn't hesitate to get a DeWalt DW088. Loads of people I've worked with use it and rate it highly.

    Got a Bosch GLL 3X 3 line level, been a good tool.

    Red line lasers are slowly with green line lasers, easier to see, so you might find a few bargains if you search.

    Tacklife on Amazon. Their stuff is brilliant quality for the money, especially for the odd couple of jobs.

    Have had a DeWalt 087 for probably 10 years and it has proved to be excellent. Tiling, installing cabinets, door frames, block-work, levelling TVs, checking the drop on a floor or ceiling, ... and much much more.

    DeWalt's are really great designed and properly constructed laser levels, their only downgrade is the price I guess. But we all know that good things does not come cheap. If you're looking for a good alternative, try to choose from Spectras, Bosch or Topcon brands for example.
    Also, I hope you'll find this articles useful if you plan to take one: https://wisepick.org/best-rotary-laser-level/, https://www.thespruce.com/best-laser-levels-4150481, http://www.toptenreviews.com/home/tools/best-laser-line-levels/.
    I guess the best solution for you would be to rent laser levels, if you plan only two tasks per year, you'll save a bunch of the money! :)

    I have a Bosch GCL2000. Happy with it, does everything I need. Horizonal line, vertical line and plumb line (top and bottom lasers). Got a cheap £20 camera tripod to mount it on as the lines keep flashing when you arn't level, so you don't need anthing fancy with built in levels.

    Seems to eat through AA batteries though.

    From what I've seen, Dewalt are the most popular for laser levels.
