From the manufacturer’s website ( https://www.plslaser.com/rotary-lasers/pls-hv2r-red-rotary-laser/ ) regarding the PLS HV2R kit “* The kit includes elevating tripod and 16-foot grade rod.” Are these items included?
That’s the gamble.
Some non-essential items may be missing from the box. The unit may not be shipped in retail packaging. That is the reason for the reduced sale price and the reduced warranty.
