Leica Disto D5 Digital Laser Rangefinder with 2.4-inch Screen and 45-degree tilt Sensor
on March 3, 2014
I use this for Antenna Tower feedline and guide wire work.
Saves 80% in time and waste of materials.
Looks expensive but its not, it's German too!!!

Leica DISTO measurers feature clearly labeled keys on the touch pad that let you easily access and control a wide range of features. With convenient shortcut keys for commonly used functions like addition and subtraction, along with area and volume calculators, Leica DISTO measuring tools let you turn individual measurements into useful numbers on the spot.
Unique Full-Color Display and Long-Range Accuracy for Outdoor Use
Because accurate results are only useful if they're easy to read and reflect the correct target point, the DISTO D5's integrated digital Pointfinder offers 4X zoom capabilities and a 2.4-inch color display. The high resolution of this display provides a crystal-clear image to make finding your target at long distances quicker and simpler, and the display is even easy to see in glaring sunshine.
The compact DISTO D5 also showcases Leica's trademarked Power Range Technology, which allows it to offer precise measurements over a range of 0.05 meters (0.16 feet) to 200 meters (650 feet). For use from 100 meters to 200 meters, a target plate (not included) helps maintain accuracy. This pairing of an easy-to-read screen with an extended working range makes the D5 a perfect pick for a wide range of outdoor construction projects.
Clever, Dependable Design Provides Precision
You require accurate measurements to prepare for any job, regardless of its size. The Leica DISTO D5's readings are accurate within one millimeter (0.4 inches), which means they are likely to be much more precise than measurements you'll get from using a tape measure.
The Leica DISTO D5's Pythagorean functions include the automatic calculation of room dimensions such as wall areas and peripheral lengths, while trapezium functions help you quickly calculate roof slopes and frontage areas, and triangle functions let you compute the area of multi-cornered rooms. Plus, with a laser dot that is clearly visible, you can always see your target point, making sure you get exactly the measurement you're looking for.
Innovative Construction Ensures Usability
The Leica DISTO D5's built-in tilt sensor quickly determines tilts to 45 degrees in either direction without requiring any complicated input from you. The tilt sensor also helps provide you with true horizontal distances, even when there are nearby obstructions, guaranteeing reliable measurements.
The Leica DISTO D5 also features a convenient time delay release option and memory space for up to 20 measurements, so you never have to worry about forgetting an important number after taking a measurement.
A comfortable, ergonomic grip helps the Leica DISTO D5 sit securely in your hand. This also makes it easier to get steady measurements and avoid drops that cause unnecessary wear and tear. The Leica DISTO D5 is also splash- and dust-proof, an important consideration on busy construction sites.
