The all new DISTO™ A8 with Digital Viewfinder and Digital Angle Measuring features

See our Combo offers below!                               3 Year DISTO Warranty if registered within 8 weeks of purchase at

The most advance laser meter available!

The all new Leica DISTO™ A8 is the next generation in laser measuring devices with a built-in Digital Viewfinder and a built-in Tilt Sensor for digital angle measurements.

The DISTO™ A8 can now Digitally ZOOM in at a 3X magnification to your target using integrated crosshairs on the display which greatly increases your ability to align the laser dot at greater distances than ever before.  The adjustable brightness and grayscale display also enhances the ability to better discern target contrast even in sunlight.


The Tilt Sensor not only indicates vertical angle measurements, but also can obtain real horizontal distances when the target is obstructed, and perform various indirect height measurements.  Angle, Slope and Pitch can be measured simply by placing the body of the DISTO™ A8 on the slope itself or aligning it at the desired angle.  Not for measuring horizontal angles.

Incorporating Leica Geosystems’ exclusive Power Range Technology, the DISTO A8 can take measurements with ±1/16 in. (1.5mm) accuracy out to 329 ft. (100m.) without a target plate, and up to 650 ft.200m (200m) with a target plate. The multifunctional end piece makes it easy to measure from edges or corners and the system automatically recognizes the point of reference. The rugged housing is splash-proof and dust-proof for reliable operation on outdoor construction jobs.

The new DISTO A8 has all of the same features and functions of the DISTO the extraordinary 3X Digital Zoom and new Digital Angle measuring via the Tilt Sensor technology.  Indoors or Outdoors - Quick and accurate measurements over short and long distances is now easier than ever before with 3X Digital Zoom and Tilt Sensor  for vertical angle measuring.


Accurate to 1/16th of an inch with a range of 650 feet!
