ProShot Alpha 1 Laser Level
$1,200.00 + GST
This new premium product offers all of the features of the original Alpha but with the convenience of CLASS I laser specification, allowing hassle free operation on today’s “laser safe” construction sites. Made in California, it comes with a 2 year warranty.
The Pro Shot Alpha 1 is a compact and robust construction grade automatic level with class leading features. Designed and manufactured in California, the Pro Shot Alpha construction laser is designed for earthmovers, concreters and general contractors that require a reliable and accurate laser to meet their needs year after year.
The Pro Shot Alpha 1 features electronic self-levelling with no foot screws for quick and precise automatic levelling. The Alpha also has the added functionality of a manual grade, which is controlled by up and down arrows on the keypad. Unlike other lasers that have a grade override function, the Alpha can be precisely aligned to match slopes – even at longer distances. While operating in grade mode, the Pro Shot Alpha 1 self-levels in the cross axis and the height alert is active to ensure quality results. This laser surpasses most of its competitors.
The Pro Shot Alpha is made in California, USA and comes with a 2 year warranty.

Alpha 1 – a class of its own
With a Class 1 laser classification, Safework Australia deems the Pro Shot Alpha 1 to be safe for use under all conditions of exposure. That makes it the only laser in its class that can be used on any site in Australia without the need for a safety officer, signage or laser operator training. Larger civil companies have increasingly strict site safety requirements, having a hassle free Class I laser onsite could mean the difference between continuing your work and being kicked off site – saving you time and money!
|Classification||Description||For use in building and construction industry?|
|Summary of the Australian Standard 2397:1993 – Safe use of lasers in the building and construction industry|
|Class 1||Safe for use under all conditions of exposure.||Yes|
|Class 2||Low-powered lasers that may require some administrative controls but present little hazard (for example, eye protection is usually provided by normal blink and aversion responses).||Yes, but with Administrative Controls|
|Class 3A||These lasers emit higher levels of light and their use requires more stringent engineering and administrative precautions in order to ensure they are not used with optical instruments (for example, a builder’s level or theodolite) which would concentrate the beam so that it would all enter the eye.||Yes, but with Administrative Controls and Precautions|
|Class 3R||These lasers operate at the same power levels as Class 3A but have higher levels of irradiance (power density). These lasers can be used for building or construction applications but should not be used in dimly lit building or construction applications (that is less than approximately 100 lux).||Yes, but with Administrative Precautions|
|Class 3B||These lasers emit either invisible or visible radiation potentially hazardous to the eye and skin. These lasers must not be used for building or construction tasks.||No|
|Class 4||These lasers are high-power devices capable of producing diffuse reflections hazardous to the eye. Skin exposure to the direct beam of a Class 4 laser is also hazardous. These lasers must not be used for building or construction tasks.||No|

A tool for life – designed and manufactured in California
Each Pro Shot Alpha is hand manufactured and tested at Laser Reference in California, USA. Unlike rival brands, Pro Shot lasers have low ongoing maintenance and repair costs – authorised repair centres still repair and stock parts for units well over 15 years old. Uneconomical write-offs are an uncommon occurrence with Pro Shot Lasers. Reasonable parts pricing and warranties mean your Pro Shot laser will be your onsite companion for many years into the future. With authorised Australian dealers and repair centres in every state and capital city, you’ll never be short of support for your Pro Shot.
Fully self-levelling – even in slope mode
For grading applications such as driveways, drainage and carparks, the Alpha can be driven to match any slope up to ±8%. Unlike other lasers, once a grade has been set the Alpha’s self-levelling function is still operating. If the laser is knocked, or temperature/vibration has caused a height variation, the laser is still able to compensate.
Machine control compatible
For laser guided machine control applications the Alpha’s got you covered. A high speed 1200RPM mode has been built in that will give you twice as many laser strikes per second than other lasers in this class. What does this mean for the operator? Smoother control and higher accuracy.
Excellent power efficiency
With 115 operating hours, the Alpha 1 has one the longest operating times in the market. This laser will give you over a month of operation using just a single set of batteries.
Tailored kits to suit your application
We understand that no two contractors are the same, so we’ve tailored kits to suit earthmovers, concreters, general builders – and even billiard table installers! The choice of receivers ranges from simple up and down and on-grade lights to millimetre readouts. Got an excavator, bobcat or dozer? We can package the Alpha with a range of machine display receivers – from display only systems for fast trenching up to fully automated dual hydraulic control systems. Call us to find out what’s on offer for your industry.
