dewalt.com.au.
USING THE PIVOT BRACKET (FIG. 5)
The DW086-XE and DW087-XE lasers have a magnetic pivot bracket (E) permanently
attached to the units. This bracket allows the unit to be mounted to any upright
surface made of steel or iron. Common examples of suitable surfaces include steel
framing studs, steel door frames and structural steel beams. The bracket also has a
keyhole slot (F) allowing the unit to be hung from a nail or screw on any kind of surface. Position the laser and/or wall mount on a stable surface. Serious personal injury
or damage to the laser may result if the laser falls.
USING THE LASER WITH THE WALL MOUNT (FIG. 5)
The DW0860 Laser Wall Mount offers more mounting options for the DW086-XE and
DW087-XE lasers. The wall mount has a clamp (G) at one end which can be fixed to a
wall angle for acoustic ceiling installation. At the other end of the wall mount is a screw
7
hole (H), allowing the wall mount to be attached to any surface with a nail or screw.
Once the wall mount is secured, its steel plate provides a surface to which the
magnetic pivot bracket can be attached. The position of the laser can then be
fine-tuned by sliding the pivot bracket up or down on the wall mount.
LEVELING THE LASERS
As long as the DW086-XE and DW087-XE lasers are properly calibrated, the lasers
are self-leveling. Each laser is calibrated at the factory to find level as long as it is
positioned on a flat surface within average ± 4° of level. No manual adjustments must
be made.

Troubleshooting
THE LASER DOES NOT TURN ON
• Make sure batteries are installed according to (+) and
(–) on the inside of the battery door.
• Make sure the batteries are in proper working condition.
If in doubt, try installing new batteries.
Step 5
• Make sure that the battery contacts are clean and free
of rust or corrosion. Be sure to keep the laser level dry
and use only new, high-quality, name brand batteries to
reduce the chance of battery leakage.
• If the laser unit is heated above 50˚C (120˚F), the unit will
not turn on. If the laser has been stored in extremely hot
temperatures, allow it to cool. The laser level will not be
damaged by pressing the on/off button before cooling to
its proper operating temperature.
THE LASER BEAMS FLASH
The DW086-XE and DW087-XE have been designed to self-level up to an average
of 4° in all directions when positioned as shown in Figure 3. If the laser is tilted so
much that internal mechanism cannot level itself, it will flash the laser (Fig. 4) – the
tilt range has been exceeded. THE FLASHING BEAMS CREATED BY THE LASER
ARE NOT LEVEL OR PLUMB AND SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR DETERMINING OR
MARKING LEVEL OR PLUMB. Try repositioning the laser on a more level surface.
