Our Rating

Pros and Cons

  • Portability - The Dewalt DW089LG Green Beam Laser weighs only about 10 pounds and has dimensions of 6 x 12.5 x 17.75 inches, meaning it is easy for one person to carry around, especially with the convenient carrying case.
  • Green Laser - Green lasers are much more visible than red lasers. For example, the Dewalt models similar to the DW089LG that have red lasers only have an indoor visibility of 50 feet instead of the 100 feet the green laser is capable of.

  • The green beam laser technology makes the tool quite expensive compared to a similar red beam laser.

  1. Recently bought one of these lasers only to discover the unit was not calibrated properly. Only correct in one of the vertical dials, the horizontal and other vertical were way out 15mm in about 6 meters. Took it back to shop they exchanged it for another only to find out this had the same problem. Went back again and tried two more new ones in the shop those were out too, left laser there and a Dewalt Rep was going out to investigate. On conclusion Rep said there was some problems in a batch, store took delivery of several more all checked by Rep and OK’d. One was left aside for myself, on taking it back home and testing it in my garage even this one exceeded the tolerance. My conclusion is these lasers are not calibrated properly and cannot be used to accurately do work with, I am now going to try and take it to Dewalt’s service centre to rectify the problem. In the mean time check your lasers.

    • Hi Glen

      I am sorry to hear about your problems. Dewalt has a great customer service and I hope they will send you a good replacement. Thank you for your feedback.


  3. The deal beaker for me with this laser is that it has no micro adjustment, but just a fake adjustment turning wheel, very poor from Dewalt . I went to purchase one and thought it was just the display model. I really don’t understand why they would do this . This feature can save a lot of time on site.
    Is there a reason Hilt lasers are not on this list ? They seem very well built.
