The new 40-6001 is accurate to 1/16th of an inch over a distance of 165 feet. Features include a patented sound activated measuring mode; 10 measurement memory; indirect (Pythagoras) measurement capability for length and height; and single distance, area (square) and volume (cube) measurements, all with a large backlit LCD screen and a compact size. Designed to work indoors and outdoors, the new Laser Distance Measure is ideal for carpenters, framers, flooring, plumbers, electricians, HVAC, appraisers, painters and MRO.

"We designed the Johnson Laser Distance Measure for ease-of-use and maximum value without sacrificing quality," said Jeffrey Johnson, Director of Product Development for the Laser Distance Measure. "The Johnson LDM is fully loaded with more features, the same or better accuracy and a retail price 20% lower than comparable products. While the competition sells for over $200, Johnson's LDM is near $165," Johnson continued.

Johnson Level has added over 60 new products in the past three years, focusing on creating the industry's broadest and deepest lines of contractor tools in key categories related to leveling, layout, measurement and marking.
