DeWalt introduced a new line laser, model DW089K, which features multiple design enhancements to improve productivity on the job site. The company says it's ideal for professionals tasked with residential and commercial applications such as installing cabinets, drop ceilings, chair rails or doors and windows.
“Contractors are increasingly using lasers to improve their productivity and, according to our research, many professionals want a line laser that assists with layout work,” project manager Ward Smith said in a statement. “The third vertical beam that our new unit offers aids in layout applications to solve many of the common frustrations our users experienced.”
The DW089K features a second plumb line that forms a 90-degree intersecting line on the floor and ceiling. This third vertical beam allows contractors to use the tool for layout applications without the need for a second laser, saving time and allowing users to be as productive as possible, according to the company.
For commercial wall layout applications, the DW089K has a track clearance of more than 1-3/4 inch, which means there is no need for additional accessories to raise the laser over drywall track.
The line laser also has a micro-adjust knob for easy alignment, a metal roll cage for durability, and an integrated pivot bracket and universal wall mount.
The new product will be available in September and retail for approximately $329.
