The AS2 Magnum Pro Shot slope laser is designed for grading and pipeline contractors working on large commercial or municipal sites. Compatible with most machine-control receivers, the AS2 features electronic servo-leveling that readies the instrument when the desired slope is dialed in. The AS2 has a 3,300-foot-diameter working range when used with the company's R8 laser receiver. Rotational coverage is 360 degrees, and grade capability is 0 to 25 percent in increments of .01 percent. Compound-grade capability is possible with an optional kit. The water- and dust-resistant instrument operates for 65 hours on four alkaline batteries, and a rechargeable battery pack is available.
