Futtura LT-710 Slope Laser spares

Futtura LT-710 & Stanley RL250GR

The Futtura LT-710 and Stanley RL250GR are effectively the same laser and so share the same calibration procedure.  These laser are electronic self levelling with a digital dial a grade feature and share much of the same internals as other Stanley and Futtura models with similar casings.

We shall assume that you know to what heights you need to calibrate each access axis to.  If you do not know then do not go any further.

Futtura LT-710 Control Panel

To enter calibration mode press and hold both the “Level/Slope” Button and “Power” Button at the same time until the display indicates it is in calibration mode.  The Display will show “CO1” which shows that the X axis is ready to calibrate.  To switch to the “Y” axis press the “level/Slope” button and the display will change to “CO2”.

The alignment of the axis is marked on the laser level casing with “X” axis being left to right of display panel.

To adjust the calibration for the selected axis press the up or down arrow keys as required once each axis has been calibrated power off the laser to save the new calibration.  Then repeat the operation for the second axis if required.  When adjusting the height of each axis you will note the display changing numerical value, see image below.

As always the Laser Level Review does not take any responsibility for your actions whilst using our guide, if you are at all unsure do not attempt to re-calibrate your laser and send it to a laser level service centre.

Additional Service Information

I have some additional information on this laser laser.  If your laser is displaying “Er.P” on the display screen then you are probably getting a fault with the laser with it not rotating.  This could be for a couple of reasons but every time I have come across this it has been for one particular reason.  This laser and other models in the Futtura and Stanley ranges have a few limitations in my view and experience.  First of all the build quality is extremely flimsy with nearly all plastic internal components.  A drop can cause major damage to these components.

One of the most common areas of damage after a drop is damage to the rotation motor and on the Futtura LR-710 and Stanley RL250GR this type of damage can be indicated by the “Er.P” error code on the display.  After a drop the pendulum assembly inside the laser casing shifts violently and the rotation motor can strike the inside of the casing. (somewhat of a design flaw).  This bends or breaks the flimsy shaft on the motor.  Sometimes you can straiten the shaft and its good to go but sometimes it will shear off, requiring a new motor if you can source one.

Had experience of these models and have anything to add please comment below.
