Home Appraisers: A Possible Replacement For That Older Disto Laser Measurer?

I told you a couple of weeks ago about my expensive Disto Plus nearing the end of economic life here, Bad News For Appraisers That Bought Disto Laser Meters From Matt Johnson and Lasermeters.com !  Well, this past Thursday, it died for good! After 5 years of using a Disto, I was almost paralyzed without one.  I drove to Lowes and Home Depot to check on a replacement and found the Bosch DLR130K for $99 and the Ryobi Laser Measure TEK4 for $149. I liked the Bosch Laser Measuring device as it was really small, compact and flat for firm velcro hold.   I really wanted the Ryobi, but it has a weird shape underneath that velcro wouldn’t easily hold well inside my “Side-Kick” case.

So, I began my search online on Ebay and found the Bosch for $20 starting bid plus shipping, Ryobi for $59.95 plus shipping and multiple Distos starting at $100+.   This morning, I settled on the Bosch for $46.51 plus $13.50 shipping for a total of $60.01, saving myself $50 off Retail Plus local taxes, for a new device.  And, it was shipped this morning, should be here by Wednesday.  I’ll try to remember to give you a report on how this device performs.  Honestly, I only use these for one function, distance only.  Bill
