This is a very well made level and has an all metal body. The trade-off to that is it is slightly heavier than some of the other levels I own. The all metal design means the level comes with a 0.0005″ accuracy, and has a guaranteed lifetime accuracy to be accurate to 0.029°.The hand grips are comfortable and the rubber finish ensures a good non-slip grip in all working conditions.I especially like the oversized vial on this level, not only is it twice the normal size, but also has a very contrasting yellow/green color – it almost looks luminescent. It includes an all-metal hang hole on one end for storage.I have a similar Milwaukee level that is magnetic, but sometimes you do not want magnetic. When I’m grinding and welding up I beams, the last thing I want is metal filings stuck all over my level, so this is just perfect.
I bought the 48in level and like it. I’m no longer in the construction trades but I would still buy it. Wish they had told me it was made in Vietnam though! I thought it was made in the US a I try to buy products made in this country, I bought a German made miter saw and have regretted that decision ever since.
This thing is dead-level and seems like it will stay that way for a long time. I tested it right out of the box by marking a level line on the wall of my shop, flipped it over to check it the other way, and it was dead on my first line. The bubble is big and easy to read. The ends are a little bit grippy, so the level doesn’t slip and fall to the floor like some levels with slippery plastic or metal ends. And it’s a box level, so it should stay true for a long time.
Man these Milwaukee redstick levels are plain and simple high quality, stout levels. Then again I have never used a bad Milwaukee tool. I am a huge fan of levels. Its just that simple tool in the shop or on a job site, in which the use of one can make the finish product a sight to see or a complete disaster. This 48″ box level is perfect for those larger surfaces. Like leveling a floor, or structure. These levels are heavier than your typical levels, which is a good thing. Milwaukee aimed at making a more robust level that could handle the riggers of the job site, handle more weight with out bending or warping, and remain dead on accurate for its lifetime. In fact dead on accuracy with these levels for their life time is part of Milwaukee guarantee. Now these redstick levels will cost you a bit more than the average level you see hanging in your local hardware store or home improvement center, but they are oh so worth it. The magnets are really strong. The level is flat to with in .0005″ on both surfaces, so it can be trusted as a straight edge. I placed the level on the flattest machine surface that I have. Which is is my cast iron table saw top. Took the thinnest feeler gauge that I have which was .004″ and tried to insert it under the table saw at every point and there was not enough room to get the feeler gauge under the saw. This level is dead flat The vile are large and true to Milwaukee claim. They really are much easier to read. I I just really like these levels and they will become the new primary use levels in my wood shop. The others I am currently using in my shop will be downgraded to more messy work like laying tile, cement, and glue ups. Id highly recommend these levels to anyone in the market for a box level. You wont regret spending the extra bucks on this type of quality.
I use levels every day for work and have many of various sizes and quality. I saw this 32 inch Milwaukee Redstick and had to have it for two reasons. 1 Because of the design quality and 2. because of its size. I’m a big fan of Milwaukee products for my own professional use and was happy to see Milwaukee come out with a line of high-quality levels to compete against other brands that have been the standard for some time. I was pleased to see the metal frame inside the body of the level to keep it rigid and straight. Other levels from other manufacturers that were quite expensive are actually flexible. Not this one. Mine came straight and level and the vials were dead on and are easy to read. I like the handle also and the attractive red color. The other reason I like it is because of the length. The 32″ length is perfect for leveling cabinets front to back and other work that a 4′ level is to long for that a 2′ level is too short for.
You can certainly find lower priced levels but you will not find a level that impresses you more than Milwaukee’s Redstick levels. They come in a wide variety of lengths both magnetic and non-magnetic. All are high quality materials with exceptional machining and finishes. Like most other levels they have removable end caps but their vials are much larger and very easy to read. Milwaukee guarantees lifetime accuracy to .029-degree.
Amazing level from Milwaukee. The 48″ length allows me to set up concrete forms, decking framing and other small project uses.The level provides accurate leveling to true your columns, framed walls, and other supporting members. The 4-foot level provides an accurate reading with easy to see bubbles.This level can easily go from the professional project to the small job for a weekender. 4-foot is a great universal length.
Well built sturdy level. What i did first was check to make sure the level was on. I put it on a level surface (one i know is level). I layed it down then flipped it 180 degrees to make sure it is true. It checked out and seems on point. It is very sturdy. At the end of each level there is a rubber piece that comes out. I admit i dont know what this is for but seems like a bumper to reduce the amout of damage it would cause if you dropped it.
Well built and easy to read
very solid high quality level.
