Bosch GSL 2 Surface Laser Review

Bosch GLSL2 Floor Lifting & Preparation System

The Bosch GSL 2 Professional Surface Laser is one of the most advanced lasers available today. With its powerful laser beam it can lift or remove large objects like concrete blocks from driveways, sidewalks, parking lots and other areas where heavy machinery would normally be used. It’s capable of lifting up to 50 pounds (23 kg) per square foot (0.5 m²). Its power can reach up to 1,000 watts which is enough to lift up to 20 cubic feet (1.6 m³) of material at a time.

A Bosch GLSL2 Professional Floor Lifting & Preparing System is ideal for removing large items such as:

Concrete Blocks (up to 25 lbs. (11 kg) each)

Large Planks or Sidewalks (up to 40 inches wide x 60 inches long x 24 inches high)

Heavy Construction Materials (such as wood, bricks, stone, etc.)

It’s also ideal for preparing surfaces before painting and applying paint.

The laser beam is also able to easily cut through drywall of up to 3/4 inch thick and can go through just 3/8 inch when cutting wood or other materials.

Thanks to the use of two lasers, the system can automatically adjust for any unevenness on the ground that might prevent it from functioning properly. The unit runs on normal household current, with a minimum requirement of 120 volts and 60 hertz (cycles per second).

This unit is very easy to use, with no special training required. It features a large blue button that instantly turns the laser on in case of an emergency. It also has an automatic shut off after 8 hours to prevent overheating. It comes with a powerful 1,000 watt laser for lifting and cutting through drywall, wood, metal and other materials with ease.

It can be used on uneven surfaces without any problems and prevents the need for heavy machinery. A 1-year warranty comes with the system and it has a total weight of 27.2 pounds.

How to use the GLSL2

Step 1: Place the machine on a flat and stable surface. Be sure to remove all objects at least 3 feet away from the machine itself.

Step 2: Turn on the laser. To turn it on, press the large blue button in the middle of the device. The red and green lights will turn on below the button.

Step 3: While the unit is warming up, use the dial on the right side of the device to select whether you want to use the cutting or lifting feature. The laser can also be used as a simple measuring tool. When using it for measuring, turn the dial back to the original position, which is off to the far left.

Step 4: Once the laser is warmed up, you can use it to start lifting or cutting. To do this, simply place the laser on top of a material and apply pressure straight down. It’s best to keep a fairly quick pace when using the laser since it can overheat if used for prolonged periods of time.

Step 5: Turn the laser off by pressing the blue button once again. If you are finished working for the day, make sure to allow the laser to cool down before putting it away.

Step 6: The machine has a 1-year warranty on all parts and a 90-day warranty for labor. If you have any problems with your unit, contact our customer service department at 1-800-807-4033.
