The GCL 25 laser by Bosch has five different points that offer solutions across the most common applications. The applications it is built to examine include: horizontal leveling, vertical leveling, squaring, plumb transfer, and layout. The best part about this tool’s versatility across common applications is that you no longer have to pack two lasers to the jobsite or off-site project, because you have the combined power of two-in-one. This laser saves you time, money, and space with the simple switch of a button.
The Bosch GCL 25 laser incorporates several special features to increase both the performance and user ease of the tool. Located conveniently on the exterior of the tool is the on/off sliding button, LED battery status, and line/point selection keypad. The on/off sliding button features a pendulum lock function and is easy to reach. It has three different levels that are: the laser is on and in self-leveling mode, the laser is on but self-leveling is off, or the laser is off. The LED battery status is located on top of the tool for added user convenience so that you don’t have to go looking for the current battery status. In addition, this laser is ergonomically designed for a comfortable and solid grip. On the interior of the tool are the tripod thread, self-leveler, and accuracy feature. The tripod thread measures at 1/4-inch and 5/8-inch. The self-leveling feature measures within 4-degrees. The accuracy feature allows for accuracy within 1/8-inch on horizontal points, 9/16-inches on vertical points, and 1/8-inch on cross-line. The points are also visible for up to 100-feet, and the lines respectively up to 33-feet. This laser is also protected against dust and splash water with ingress protection 54 (IP 54).
The keypad is controlled by how many times you press the keypad. When the pendulum is unlocked and the laser has self-leveling on, the different levels are: default mode where you will have cross-lines (turning it on), 5 point mode (first press of keypad), horizontal line only (second press of keypad), vertical line only (third press of keypad), and return to default mode (fourth press of keypad). When the pendulum is locked (slope mode) and the laser has self-leveling off, the different levels are: cross-line mode (default mode), horizontal line (first press of keypad), vertical line (second press of keypad), or back to default (third press of keypad). Please note that when you are in slope mode, the points are used to plumb and align partitions based on their 90-degree angle to each other. The important precondition for these applications is to have the points leveled. Using the points in non-self-leveling mode may lead to an error. To avoid this error, only the lines are activated for the leveling applications when the laser is in slop mode.
This GCL 25 laser is outstanding in comparison to the GPL2, GPL3, or CPL5. To begin, it out numbers the other models by featuring a cross-line in addition to five laser dots. It also has a plumb range of 15-feet, a horizontal point range of 100-feet, and a lines range of 30-feet. The accuracy is unique to the GCL25 of within 1/8-inch at 30-feet. The self-leveling within 4-degrees is also only a feature you will get with this laser. It is also not limited to basic applications, covering plumbing, horizontal leveling, squaring, and versatile alignment. It also has the ability to set right angles.
This kit includes one GCL 25 bare tool combination laser, 4 AA batteries, a target plane, carrying point, and carton box.
