    I have a 4 ft and a 6ft Fatmax. Best levels I've ever had. Even though I don't use them much nowadays, I wouldn't part with them.

    I would have been robbed trying to clear everything into skips, so I did some searching and the grab lorry works out cheaper.

    It's £380 for each 32 tonne load. That's the equivalent of four skips. With 1.2m by 600mm foundations there sure is a lot of muck to shift.

    Checked 600, 1200 and 2000 levels this morning. 600 and 1200 are accurate with the bubbles in same place. The liquid in the 1200 level has gone lighter in colour.

    Surprisingly 2000 is out. Checkec it both ways on flat surface and bubble is in different places. Not happy as i paid something like £70 for this one and neen abused.

    I would soon be moaning to the company, if it was my level & having paid £70 for it.

    Think I'll write them an email about 2m one. Is only anout 3 years old. See what response I get.

    Would never have checked them otherwise as trusted the brand.

    Sent them a message on the website.

    I paid £55 for the level in 2015, so less than I quoted above.

    I hope so, the 600 and 1200 one have a milled aluminum finish to top and bottom. The 2000 one is just powder coated.

    Still ok for chases as don't need it to be 100% accurate, but no point in keeping a level that is out.

    Can't you just replace the bubble? I always carry a couple of spares...

    Received an e-mail reply back from Stabila, Germany and they say they give a 10 year warranty on accuracy of the levels.

    They have provided details for agency in UK for any warrant claims.

  20. Is it spirit level season.

    Just dug a 600mm one out my shed for a job and the liquid is now clear. Virtually unusable in daylight.

    Not a level I use very often, normally bigger or smaller.
