Leica Rugby 820 Horizontal Laser Levels

Rugby 820 Horizontal Laser Levels

The Leica Rugby 820 is the worlds most rugged horizontal laser level with duel grading capabilities.

The Rugby 820 features manual grading in both the X&Y axis when used in conjunction with either the Rod-Eye 140 & 160 laser receiver and automatic grading when used with the RodEye 180 laser receiver.

  Product Features

Toughest laser level on the market - IP 68 water & dust protection.
Unbreakable Li-Ion Battery with easy charge options.
Overmould protection for drop
2-Year Knockdown, 5-Year Free and lifetime manufacturers warranty.
Market leading laser detectors with 12cm detection window.
Ideal for levelling concrete or transfering benchmarks & levels.
Ensure exact levelling and positioning of formwork.
Smart Targeting - allows simple one man setup for slopes for drains, ramps and drive-ways.

Tying in Slopes:
When creating a slope between different levels such as a driveway from a property to the road, simply set  the Rugby up over  either end of the slope and align the x-axis guide site in the direction required.

Next place the staff at same level as the laser and adjust the height of the detector until it indicates is aligned with rotating laser and lock off the clamp.

Then simply move to the other end of the slope and place the staff on the finished level, adjust the slope of the laser plane manually by having a second person pressing the arrows on the laser level until it strikes the centre of the laser detector. If using the Rod-Eye 180 laser receiver this can be done as a one man job by simply pressing the Smart Targeting button which will re-align the laser automatically.

Once this is done you can start your grading as any time the laser detector beeps the bottom of the staff will be perfectly aligned with the slope between the two points.

Concrete Works:
When pouring concrete you require a robust laser level able to withstand the harsh conditions encountered. The Rugby 820 is the ideal choice due to its incredible accuracy and simple one button set up. You can even completely submerge the laser into a bucket of water to clean off any concrete you may get on the tool.

Formwork Levelling:
When setting up formwork  the new Laserman Rod-Eye 160 or 180 Laser Detector are the perfect partner for the Rugby 820. With their Digital readout these new laser detectors display the distance in (mm) needed to adjust the formwork to obtain the correct level eliminating the need to move the detector on the staff.

Land & Site Leveling:
When levelling sites the Rugby 820 features a working range of 800m and the new range of laserman Rod-Eye laser detectors allow you to find the laser even easier with their industry leading large detector windows.

  Smart Tageting -
The Rugby 820 features manual grading in both the X & Y axis. However when used with the RodEye 180 Detector this process can be automated. Simply adjust the detector to the required height and the laser will adjust the slope to match.
  Unique Li-Ion, Run charge & Solar battery concept
When accuracy is paramount the Rugby 810 laser level delivers.
  Best In Class Laser Detectors
Both the Rod-Eye Laserman 140 or 160 laser detectors available with this model feature a 12cm detector window twice the industry average.
  Toughest Laser Levels On The Market
IP 68 protected and the only laser in the market with Military Grade Certification mean these lasers can even be submerged in water.
