Leica Geosystems Introduces the Leica DISTO™ Special5

Leica Geosystems AG, the inventor of the laser distance measuring devices, celebrates the 750,000th sold Leica DISTO™ with a special edition. The special model, limited for this occasion to 1,600 pieces, is in unmistakable Leica red. The Leica DISTO Special stands out through its precision, ease of use and measurement comfort.

Using the latest laser technology enables a measurement range of 0.7 to 650’ within 1/16”. Most importantly, using a laser distance meter will save time in daily measurement tasks, raising productivity considerably. Even in difficult measurement situations, only one person will be needed to measure.

The Leica DISTO Special has numerous functions that make your work easier. The Pythagorean function allows for the indirect measurement of height and width – a necessity in inaccessible places. All of the DISTO functions are simple to use and intuitive, making your measuring task simpler and easier.

DISTO’s products are sold through a network of authorized DISTO Plus distributors and dealers throughout North America. Buyers can also select, specify and purchase products directly online at www.disto.com.
