To celebrate the 750,000th sold Leica DISTO, Leica released a special edition, the Leica DISTO Special 5, limited for this occasion to 1,600 pieces.

Leica Geosystems AG, the inventor of the laser distance measuring devices, celebrated the 750,000th sold Leica DISTO with a special edition. The special model, limited for this occasion to 1,600 pieces, is in unmistakable Leica red. The Leica DISTO Special 5 stands out through its precision, ease of use and measurement comfort.

Using the latest laser technology enables a measurement range of 0.7 to 650' within 1/16". Most importantly, using a laser distance meter will save time in daily measurement tasks, raising productivity considerably. Even in difficult measurement situations, only one person will be needed to measure.

The Leica DISTO Special 5 has numerous functions that make your work easier. The Pythagorean function allows for the indirect measurement of height and width - a necessity in inaccessible places. All of the DISTO functions are simple to use and intuitive, making your measuring task simpler and easier.

DISTO's products are sold through a network of authorized DISTO Plus distributors and dealers throughout North America.
