1501-4800 Magnetic BIG J Heavy Duty Aluminum Level

Note from Johnson Level:

The 1501-4800 contains many features that make this level JOB SITE TOUGH.  One of these features is the Quik-Change replaceable cover plates and vials for service in the field.  Oversized vials make the process of leveling even easier.  The machined working edges assure that this level will give its user maximum accuracy.  The rare earth magnets on the edge of the level are great for acting like a "third hand" and holding tightly to ferrous metal surfaces.  This review was done by Coptool and can be viewed in its original form at coptool.com

Product Review:

Recently we received one of Johnson's 48" Magnetic BIG J Heavy Duty Aluminum Level 1501-4800 for review and our initial impressions were very positive. The construction is solid and very nice design with large viewing bubbles, rubberized end caps and even the comfortable center grips. The magnet along the side is a very nice feature, personally had never used a magnetic 48" level it's like having 3 hands, I've seen the light. That being said we handed it off to one of our favorite contractor and long time Ohio Power Tool customer with a mission to try and break it. We will report back soon, in the meantime Johnson Levels has some other cool products like free Android Apps (Leveling Bubble & Visual Level) and just announced today a full line of measuring tapes and long tapes, check out the full press release below.  

MEQUON, WI -- Johnson Level & Tool has expanded its measuring tool line with five series of power tape measures and four series of long tapes.  These 18 new tools join a 2009 expansion into laser distance measuring and measuring wheels.

Johnson Level's new tape measure program ranges from a basic professional tape measure to a high-impact stainless steel model, with retail prices ranging from $4.99 to $14.99.  Its long tape measure program consists of fiberglass, steel and nylon-clad high-grade carbon steel models, nearly all containing the Gear Drive system which rewinds tapes three times faster than traditional long tapes.  Retail prices range from $15.99 to $89.99.
