At a Glance

This PLS5 system package comes with the HVD 500 laser detector and a bracket for pendulum layout target, in addition to the standard floor stand, magnetic wall bracket, carrying pouch, and hard carrying case (available with the PLS5 tool-only package). The tool measures 2-1/2 x 6-1/2 x 4-1/4 inches for portability around the job site. For your convenience, the PLS5 can run for more than 30 hours on three standard AA-sized batteries (included). All PLS tools are designed and manufactured to meet strict quality control guidelines, and the PLS5 is backed by a three-year limited warranty.

Versatile, Precise, and Easy-to-Use for Improved Efficiency

As a construction professional, you know exactly how time consuming and tricky to master bubble vial levels, plumb-bob setups, and complicated rotary lasers can be. Developed by contractors to help you work more efficiently, the PLS5 point-to-point laser is precise, portable, and simple to use, making it ideal for everything from drywall, carpentry, HVAC, and electrical work to steel erection and glazier use. This mew design is smaller, more durable and easier to use then the original PLS5.

The PLS5 features five bright, easy-to-see beams with all beams square to each other, which lets you quickly trace plumb lines from floor to ceiling or from 50 feet off the ground. The PLS5 is the ultimate Layout laser as it provides Plumb, Level and Square layout points. With the HVD laser detector, you can even shoot level benchmarks and set control points in bright sunlight. This included detector extends the working range of your laser tool from 60 feet visibly outdoors to 250 feet with the HVD detector. Indoors in normal lighting the beams are visible to 300 feet.

The PLS5's intuitive design also includes a cantilevered nose that makes it easy to see the laser's down beam over two-by-fours, metal tracks, and plates. It comes with the unique PLS pendulum target, which transfers the beam down to the work surface and can be used to transfer control lines from floors to walls.

The PLS5 is accurate within 1/8-inch at 100 feet. To help ensure this accuracy, if the self-leveling range is exceeded, the beam shuts off to alert you.

PLS Benchmark Dampening Ensures Consistent, Reliable Layout Results

Like all PLS point and line laser alignment tools, the PLS5 is fully self-leveling, and it takes full advantage of the patented PLS pendulum design and magnetic dampening to deliver real, usable results. Dampening is the settling down effect on the laser beam, and thanks to this advanced technology, all PLS point and line lasers settle down instantly when moved to a new layout point.

Additionally, this system compensates for job site vibrations caused by compressors, generators, and other heavy equipment, preventing the laser point from "jumping" around and ensuring that your laser delivers accurate, usable information. This helps your team get jobs done right the first time to save you time and money.

Three-Year Limited Warranty

PLS has upgraded its warranty from a single year to a three-year limited warranty. During this warranty period, your PLS product will be repaired or replaced (with the same or similar model at our option), without charge for either parts or labor, through PLS.

If your laser tool ever does need to be serviced, PLS offers fast, 48-hour factory turnaround on repairs or replacements to help ensure that your PLS laser line tool continues to provide accurate performance and improved productivity for the full duration of your career.

Being in the custom home remodeling business I'm always demonstrating to clients how out of square or plumb their existing structure is. When it comes time to re-working the project I had to wrestle with a plumb bob or spend time squaring up. I've looked at the three other shooting type laser tools and found that the PLS5 is the best value for the money. Even the accessories are well thought out 'cause they help me layout square using their pendulum target and the wall bracket lets me position the laser anywhere on the job. It saves me a ton of time and I do more with my PLS5 than my little rotary laser. I need the accuracy and I like the fact that the beams settle down very fast. Squaring is easy because you shoot 90 degree angles as soon as you turn it on. I tried the RoboVector but could not use it much past 30 feet. Beams got too big and I never knew when it was in self leveling range. Sent it back. PLS5 is more money but I learned a long time ago that you usually get what you pay for. Side by side comparisons rates a thumbs up from me for PLS

It is almost a great unit if only:
1) it had brighter beams for daylight use, such as setting square on a house foundation etc. Inside there is plenty of light.
2) the five beams were not offset. When squaring for a foundation layout one must allow for the 1" offset. If I set the laser's plumb-bob beam over a corner mark and point the front beam to my next point, the 90 degree point is going to be 1" off. I don't like this because this is one more thing I have to adjust for. When paying this kind of money I should not have to make adjustments for this.
The PLS5 could learn from a competitive product, the RoboVector, that doesn't have the 1" offset in its square. You get a true square, not just a 90 degree. I can set the plumb on a corner point, point to my next corner and see another corner that is in square with the first corner point. The RoboVector's beams are not as bright which hurts its use outside. The RoboVector is considerably less expensive.The PLS5 is more accurate and that meant a lot to me. See specs.
The PLS5 is a good unit, more accurate, expensive, and with some limitations. A new version (PLS5X) is supposedly better for outdoors. Check it out too. Probably worth the extra.

We build homes and small offices, and we bought a PLS-3. It gave us quicker readings on leveling foundations, and squaring up corners, than conventional leveling tools, strings, triangles, etc. It saved us time, money, readjustments, and it was accurate out to 100 feet.
We have now added a PLS-5, and are doing even more, squaring up walls, making measurements on ceilings without going up a ladder. We recently laid out an entire cathedral ceiling, doing all the measurements and angles while standing on the floor. Both units have paid for themselves in less than a month of use.

List price for the PLS5 is actually $495.00, NOT $999.95 as Amazon claims!

$378.94 is actually only 23.5% less than Pacific Laser Systems' MSRP of $495.00. Amazon has artificially raised the list price by 50.5% to make this look like a better deal than it is! It's still a decent price, but it's nothing like the savings they're reporting!

I have been researching these for a couple weeks now. This is what I found out, the older model has a 1" offset which some people do not like myself included. There is a new model without the 1" offset were everything is in line. The problem is they did not change the model number. So you don't know which one you are buying! Other than that I recommend this laser for a five beam or the Spectra LP40 for a 4 beam laser... UPDATE the new model is called THE NEW PLS5!!! $299 at ACE TOOL...

After looking for a laser level for the past year, I finally took the plunge and bought the PLS5. Out of the box, I was not disappointed. Simple, easy to set up; plumb, level and square. Have already used for a framing job and I going to use on a garden shed to square the foundation. Am not a professional, but this really helps. As someone says, if you can find a better one, buy it. For my money, this is perfect

I have used this instrument twice so far in setting hollow metal steel door frames. Since the PLS5 comes with a mounting bracket that contains magnets it was prefect for the job. Quick and easy to use, I checked it with my "known" stick level and found the PLS5 spot on. The time I have had it is short but so far I am very pleased. The only down side seems to be battery life after the first days use I had to replace what where new batteries. However the 108 degrees may have an effect. But so far so good.

This tool is the best layout laser I've used. The self-leveling feature (which is gravity-operated, not motorized) works quite well and the beam settles down very quickly, none of the see-sawing you get with a cheap unit.

The 5 beams make plate layout for an addition quick and painless (although a second floor target would be helpful). When we raised the addition walls, there was no fooling around with a spirit level - bump the floor stand against the bottom plate, pull the wall to where the dot hits the top plate, and nail the brace. Fast. Simple.

To my knowledge, this is the only 5 beam laser that uses a pulsed beam, meaning that it will work with a detector in an exterior application. That's the biggest reason for the price difference between the PLS and the Bosch or Stanley. We used it to set the corner pins for our most recent addition. Fast. Simple.

Would I buy this again? Without hesitation. (I can't believe how long I went without one.) I researched the different options quite a bit before taking the plunge on the PLS (the most expensive) and I am confident I made the right choice. I am a remodeling contractor and have an ever-growing list of what I can use this for. (Can light layout for a cathedral ceiling, top plate alignment, and on and on.)

Go for it. You won't be disappointed.
