Multi-Use Combination Laser
The GCL 25 laser by Bosch has five different points that offer solutions across the most common applications. The applications it is built to examine include: horizontal leveling, vertical leveling, squaring, plumb transfer, and layout. The best part about this tool’s versatility across common applications is that you no longer have to pack two lasers to the jobsite or off-site project, because you have the combined power of two-in-one. This laser saves you time, money, and space with the simple switch of a button.
The Bosch GCL 25 laser incorporates several special features to increase both the performance and user ease of the tool. Located conveniently on the exterior of the tool is the on/off sliding button, LED battery status, and line/point selection keypad. The on/off sliding button features a pendulum lock function and is easy to reach. It has three different levels that are: the laser is on and in self-leveling mode, the laser is on but self-leveling is off, or the laser is off. The LED battery status is located on top of the tool for added user convenience so that you don’t have to go looking for the current battery status. In addition, this laser is ergonomically designed for a comfortable and solid grip. On the interior of the tool are the tripod thread, self-leveler, and accuracy feature. The tripod thread measures at 1/4-inch and 5/8-inch. The self-leveling feature measures within 4-degrees. The accuracy feature allows for accuracy within 1/8-inch on horizontal points, 9/16-inches on vertical points, and 1/8-inch on cross-line. The points are also visible for up to 100-feet, and the lines respectively up to 33-feet. This laser is also protected against dust and splash water with ingress protection 54 (IP 54).
The keypad is controlled by how many times you press the keypad. When the pendulum is unlocked and the laser has self-leveling on, the different levels are: default mode where you will have cross-lines (turning it on), 5 point mode (first press of keypad), horizontal line only (second press of keypad), vertical line only (third press of keypad), and return to default mode (fourth press of keypad). When the pendulum is locked (slope mode) and the laser has self-leveling off, the different levels are: cross-line mode (default mode), horizontal line (first press of keypad), vertical line (second press of keypad), or back to default (third press of keypad). Please note that when you are in slope mode, the points are used to plumb and align partitions based on their 90-degree angle to each other. The important precondition for these applications is to have the points leveled. Using the points in non-self-leveling mode may lead to an error. To avoid this error, only the lines are activated for the leveling applications when the laser is in slop mode.
This GCL 25 laser is outstanding in comparison to the GPL2, GPL3, or CPL5. To begin, it out numbers the other models by featuring a cross-line in addition to five laser dots. It also has a plumb range of 15-feet, a horizontal point range of 100-feet, and a lines range of 30-feet. The accuracy is unique to the GCL25 of within 1/8-inch at 30-feet. The self-leveling within 4-degrees is also only a feature you will get with this laser. It is also not limited to basic applications, covering plumbing, horizontal leveling, squaring, and versatile alignment. It also has the ability to set right angles.

Top reviews from the United States

- I love that it can do both the 5 dot and the lines. This makes it a very convenient tool.
- It comes with the magnetic stand that has a micro adjust.
- The self leveling laser head is locked when the laser is shut off.
- It's very accurate. compared to a co-workers pls line laser and it was spot on.
- Can do the horizontal line, vertical line, and dots separately or together.
- includes a small nylon pouch in case you just want to carry the laser around and not all the attachments.
- Kind of heavy. Overall I don't mind the weight except the magnetic stand and laser are so heavy it will not stick to finished corner bead without sliding down. (Not a problem with the other smaller lasers)
- The laser line fades pretty quickly. As stated earlier, I compared this to a PLS180 and the Bosch's line got fainter as it got further from the center, whereas the PLS stayed bright the whole area it was visible. Will only be a problem in very bright rooms.
Overall this is a great laser with only a few small shortcomings hence the 4 star rating. I have only owned this laser for a few weeks. I will update this rating if anything changes over time.
The self leveling feature works but it is only self leveling for a limited amount of slope. If you are using this indoors to install cabinets or something similar it should serve you just fine. I used it to install cabinets and it worked great. However I tried to use it outdoors to install a garden fence that was plumb and at a right angle to another fence and the yard was too out of level for the amount of self leveling so I put it on a tripod and leveled the tripod first.
It does not work with NiCd/NiMH rechargeable batteries. Those batteries are 1.2V and normal alkaline batteries are 1.5V. Most electronics work with both but this unit does not. I prefer to not use alkaline batteries as they tend to leak when you leave them installed. I know you can just take the batteries out when you store it but not everyone remembers every time so I prefer to just use rechargeables everywhere. I will probably try lithium disposables.
Overall it works pretty good.
