Overview for the Leica Rugby 420 Dual Grade Laser
The Leica Rugby 420DG is a fully automatic, self-leveling laser with dual grade capability and enhanced operating range up to 1,800 feet. Designed for applications, such as land leveling and tiling, this rotary laser features manual axis alignment and laser plane stabilization for increased accuracy. The Rugby 420 includes a Rod Eye Plus laser receiver with anti-strobe protection and three accuracy levels for efficient use outdoors. Capable of tilting on both axes for accurate measurement of slopes, it also comes with a NiMH battery pack that powers up the device up to 100 hours!
Self-Leveling and Dual Grade Matching
Whether you have to precisely lay out a construction site, perform control measurements, install ceilings and partitions or align concrete forms, the Leica 420DG grade laser delivers accurate results with its self-leveling accuracy of 1/16th inch per 100 feet. Featuring an infrared beam that is invisible to the eye, this device has an automatic dual grade capability up to -5 to +15% in both axes and offers real-time grade matching that allows you to easily match any existing slope.
Laser Plane Stabilization and Axis Alignment
Save on labor costs and align the Rugby 420DG with a simple one-man operation using its manual-axis-alignment feature. It also has laser plane stabilization that delivers the most stable and accurate plane of laser light over the whole range.
The Leica Rugby laser level can be set-up on a tripod and is equipped with a large, graphic display and five-button keypad that provides easy grade entry by selecting the axis, then pressing up or down to enter the required grade. You can also press the Star button to open the menu and change settings.
Leica Rod Eye Plus Receiver
The included Rod Eye Plus laser receiver is integrated with an anti-strobe protection that detects and ignores flash from other sources so that they will not interfere with the Rugby 420DG laser’s performance. With an operating range of up to 1,500 feet, this laser detector is Leica Rugby’s perfect partner for any exterior work.
Rod Eye Plus allows the use of three different detectable accuracies, fine, medium and coarse. The nine-channel arrow display and audio output provide you with all the information needed to lock on the laser beam. It has two, large graphic displays and three LEDs that can be used as a reference for the receiver’s position. The Rod Eye Plus also has a detection height of two inches and a versatile rod bracket to secure mounting to both square and oval rods.
The Leica 420DG dual grade laser is equipped with a beam masking function that turns off the laser beam to allow multiple laser usage on the same site. It self-levels within +/-5 degrees and alerts you of height changes to prevent elevation errors. It also features wind sensitivity setting for working under adverse conditions and personalized identification for anti-theft protection.
High Performance for All Day Use
Designed for maximum durability in any weather condition, the Rugby 420 DG is dustproof and water resistant with its IP57 rating. It has a high-impact composite housing with protective rubber over-molding. With rechargeable NiMH batteries, this dual grade slope laser lets you work up to 100 hours without interruption.
This Leica dual grade laser package comes with a Rod Eye Plus with bracket, carrying case, NiMH rechargeable battery pack, charger, universal charger cable and a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty.
