DeWalt has introduced a new laser distance measurer in an effort to provide users with a quick and efficient way to estimate space on the jobsite. The DW030 can be used by estimators, foreman, superintendents, plumbers, electricians, general contractors, HVAC, and industrial maintenance professionals to measure distance, square footage and volume. The company says it built the DW030 with a compact design and rubber over-molding for easy grip and operation. Additionally, the unit has large, clearly marked buttons that allow users to accurately select between units, area, distance and volume buttons. For added ease of use, the DW030 has a backlight display for improved visibility on jobsites.  The DW030 is built to withstand a six foot drop and is resistant to water and dust, providing users with a unit that can endure jobsite abuse and various weather conditions.
