Milwaukee Laser Distance Meter 2282-20

A while back we did a review of the Milwaukee Laser Distance Meter 2280-20.  Now we are here to tell you about the 2282-20.  Ok there we told you.  Ok your probably thinking about the stats and should you upgrade.  First is the question of upgrade.  If you own the 2280, no I wouldn’t spent my money.  The meter does have 7 measurement function: length, area, volume, indirect measurement (Pythagoras), and stake-out, timer and horizontal mode.  Accuracy of 1/16″ and a range of up to 260ft.

The screen is easy on the eyes and even someone like me or an 80 year old woman can easily figure this out.  I do like this laser, but a bluetooth meter might intrigue me a little more.

What we Like

  • Accurate
  • Range
  • Ease of use

What We Don’t Like

  • Doesn’t have a bottle opener

  1. Nice intro…lol I’m looking into them now myself.. still using the old school tape measures… would be great for AC installs, and duct Fab….

  2. I really want one of these things. I’ve narrowed it down to the Bosch (GLR225), DeWalt (DW03050), Johnson (40-6005), & now this Milwaukee version. I have a couple of projects this spring/summer that I think this type of tool will be useful. Wish me luck. Laters TIA
