My youngest daughter house is near completion and their yard needs grading. Also have two fields need to install one an open ditch through and the other not sure can even drain it till grades are shot. I can rent laser lever for about $250 per week but issue is not able to finish those jobs in one week. Work gets in the way.   We can shoot all the grades in one day for about $90 rental but my other son in law who is engineer for roads in our county said you need level on the job to keep checking it. I can hire someone to do the grade shots but none we are comfortable with asking on borrowing equipment. Found out borrow often means paying for but not owning.

 

So am considering buying a laser level for these three jobs. Lowes has a Bosh that is $5?? we think would be sufficient but am asking for recommendations on a laser level or for the grade shooting period.  Thanks

How about buying what you need, then putting it on Craig's list or FB market place after your done with it?  Seems if you get anything within $250 of what you paid for you would be ahead.  And if you break you already own it.  :o

We have a Dewalt transit. Use it when we put up bins as far as site prep and leveling the forms. Think we paid $1300 12-13 years ago. Saw a used one on Craigslist couple months ago for $1000. Buy one, use it then sell it when you’re done?

I am amazed the idea of buying and reselling did not enter my mind. Especially since I am in process of selling some equipment no longer need. DUH 

 

Thanks for waking up those brain cells.

If you buy one and want to sell it let me know. I bought a used $130 one off ebay 10 years ago. It still works..most of the time... but its time for an upgrade...
