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.
