Trimble Introduces New Spectra Precision Laser Tool for Interior Construction

Rugged Spectra Precision LT20 Crossline Laser Tool Provides Bright Beams

Munich, April 15, 2013—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today the new Spectra Precision® LT20 Crossline Laser Tool. The LT20 is an easy-to-use, automatic self-leveling laser tool that projects ultra-bright horizontal and vertical lines. The highly versatile laser tool can replace a level, square, plumb bob, chalk and optical instrument for increased accuracy and faster completion on the interior construction jobsite.

The announcement was made today at bauma 2013, the 30th international fair for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment.

The LT20 Crossline Laser Tool includes a durable housing with generous overmold to withstand the rigors of the professional construction environment. With its rugged design, the LT20 can survive a drop of up to 1 meter (3 feet) on concrete.

The laser tool is used in a wide variety of interior applications including wall layout, acoustic ceiling installation, drywall track installation, cabinet installation, finish carpentry and vertical plumb and alignment. The laser beam uses a wide fan angle for maximum coverage.

The Spectra Precision LT20 includes a versatile accessory that allows for mounting on tripods, columns studs or poles. The mount has vertical height adjustment and horizontal rotation capability for maximum range and quick setups.

The LT20 Crossline Laser Tool is available now through the Spectra Precision Dealer Network.
