Editor's Review: Tool Test: Laser Measures

review date: November 1, 2008

The PD 40 has by far the longest range of any tool I tested. It has fewer features other similarly priced models but performs its functions admirably. One the Hilti is its cumulative-distance feature, which automatically adds each measurement to the last. For estimating finish-carpentry tasks, it can’t be beat. It doesn’t have a memory function, but it displays the last three measurements. The Hilti is also the only tool I tested with a lifetime warranty. Hilti also offers a basic model, the PD 4 ($200), which focuses on simple distance and continuous-measuring functions.
