Hilti introduced their new measuring system, the PD 4. Over the years we have used a variety of Hilti’s lasers and we have to say they are very easy to use, durable and work great. We haven’t had a chance to get our hands on this laser system, but we can only imagine that it would be just as well built as the other measuring systems Hilti has to offer.
The new PD 4 is 100% waterproof and dust tight. This device takes reading from 7.8″ to 230′. We are not sure what the accuracy is for these measurements, so if anyone has an idea, please let us know. This has a single button operation to control the laser. The laser comes in a soft pouch and runs on two AA batteries.
Again we haven’t tested this system, but looking at the picture, it looks like Hilti put a nice rubber protective sleeve around the laser to help minimize the damage from drops.
