Fast, Reliable, Digital Leveling

TULSA, Okla. August 27, 2009 ” For transferring height, setting slope or leveling in both indoor and outdoor conditions, the Hilti PRE 3 Rotating Laser simplifies it all. With single-button operation and integrated Hilti Pulse Power technology, the PRE 3 delivers precision measuring and leveling readings even under harsh working conditions.

World-renowned Hilti quality is apparent in every facet of the PRE 3. With an operating range of up to 1,300 feet in diameter, the PRE 3 features a large laser receiving window with digital measurement that quickly localizes the laser beam, saving time on the job while providing reliable readings. The durable design includes automatic shock warning and shutdown should excessive vibration cause the potential for inaccurate readings, so that the operator can use the PRE 3 with confidence. A protective head cover allows the PRE 3 to function effectively and efficiently in tough outdoor conditions. The long-life Li-Ion battery with Hilti™s CPC technology provides up to 40 hours of continuous running time and can be charged at the same time the PRE 3 is being used.

The rotating laser provides digital versatility for a wide range of applications. For transferring and checking reference heights, setting slope, leveling formwork for decks and excavations, measuring and leveling for building construction, pouring concrete and much more, the PRE 3™s accurate Pulse Power technology readings and single-button operation increase productivity.

Setup is quick, too. The PRE 3 has a self-leveling range of plus-or-minus five degrees, and the digital readings provide a precise visual confirmation of how much the reading is above or below the desired level. When using the optional tripod, the PRE 3 attaches quickly with an easy-to-use self-locking mechanism.

The tripod is one of many PRE 3 accessories that save time and increase versatility. By mounting the PRE 3 on the tripod and using the portable receiver, a single operator can cover a lot of territory. Also available is a holder for the laser receiver, a slope adapter that aids in setting the PRE 3 to inclinations up to 60°, spare battery packs, a main charger and a car battery charger.

Backing the Hilti PRE 3 is Hilti™s Calibration Service for reliability and accuracy. Even with Hilti™s built-in protection features, precision instruments can be affected over time by everyday use and more. Through the Calibration Service, the PRE 3 will be calibrated and adjusted as needed, with the calibration confirmed in writing. The PRE 3 is also covered by Hilti™s Lifetime Service, a unique service agreement that includes two years of no-cost coverage.
