Professional green laser level FIRECORE F93T-XG, which projects three bright closed lines around the perimeter and a full plumb line.
The level is absolutely identical to the F93T-XR model. Except for the color of the laser and its manufacturing technology. LD modules are installed in the review hero. And in red – crystal, both from the Japanese company Sharp.
The level is sold in different sets, including a receiver. For comfortable work on the street during the day.

Housing laser level
The FIRECORE F93T-XG laser level is just perfect. Without any flaws. All gaps are clearly maintained. The parts are also perfectly paired like the laser level Fukuda MW-94D-4GX.
A powerful rubber jacket, almost all over the body, is able to prevent mechanical damage in small falls.
But despite this protection, the skeletons of the towers are made of plastic. Therefore, when falling on the towers themselves, they are likely to be damaged.
The green version of the level uses laser LD modules from the Japanese company Sharp. Which, in conjunction with a cone prism, give a bright and thin beam at different distances.
See the photo of the beam thickness below
The battery compartment and two threads for mounting additional accessories are located at the base of the device. You can evaluate the quality of performance from the photo.
The level of implementation of these elements is really very high. It is in no way inferior to well-known world brands.
The battery compartment of the Firecore F93T-XG laser level is closed through a rubber gasket. This indicates a high compliance with the declared protection from dust and moisture.
According to the European classifier – protection code IP54
The case of this device is very ergonomic and compact. Like many similar products today.
For example. If you put it next to A small FUKUDA MW-93T-3GX laser level. You can see that they are almost identical. But there is still a feeling that Firecore is slightly smaller.
The Firecore F93T-XG laser level has a high-speed pendulum compensator with magnetic dampers. Automatic installation of the compensator takes just a couple of seconds. When switching on or moving the switched-on device from one point to another. This is an excellent indicator.
Quick installation of the compensator
When installing the device in auto-leveling mode on an inclined surface (namely, with an inclination above 4 degrees). The level activates the built-in visual alarm in the form of rapidly flashing laser lines.
It doesn’t have an audio alert.
In the off state, the compensator pendulum is tightly locked. This allows you not to worry about it with various vibrations during transportation.
Control laser level Firecore F93T-XG
Here everything is exactly the same as the model with the red beam. Only the color of the toggle switch differs. In the F93T-XG, it is green, in accordance with the color of the laser radiation.
Two-position toggle switch. In the “OFF” position, it turns off the level and blocks the compensator. And in the “ON” position-turns on the device and removes the pendulum lock. And switches the laser level to auto-leveling mode. The horizontal plane lights up immediately.
At the top is an informative control panel for planes and additional modes.
There is also a convenient scale of four indicators. Which can be used to predict the remaining battery charge. And understand the remaining amount of time the device is running.
Let’s go directly to the management. To turn the mode on an incline. Hold down the “LASER” button for 2-3 seconds.
The corresponding indicator above the same button will light up. And the horizon will turn on. The battery charge scale indicators will also light up.
Plane switching algorithm
Further successive clicks on the “LASER” button will change the planes, namely:
- 1 press – the horizon is turned off, one front vertical plane is turned on.
- 2 press – the second lateral vertical is connected. Both verticals are on.
- 3 press – the horizon is connected. All three planes are lit 360 degrees.
- 4 press – all planes are turned off. The device is turned off.
The same algorithm for switching planes and in the auto-alignment mode. Except for the 4th press. Here one horizon turns on again and then in a circle.
Oh, by the way. In TILT mode, the lines flash once every 5 seconds. This is another visual alert. It is made in order not to forget that the markup is done manually. A straight line is simply projected at any arbitrary angle.
This mode is not intended for marking horizontal or vertical levels!
This additional information will not be superfluous. And the rare blinking of lines does not interfere with work.
Another arrow button on the right switches the Firecore F93T-XG laser level to the special receiver mode. Which is included in the corresponding package.
When you press this button, the laser lines start to glow a little dimmer. And an information indicator also lights up above it.
Small life hack. In this mode, the lines are dimmer. This accordingly requires less energy. Therefore, if you have enough line brightness in this mode, you can save a lot of battery power
And more. The receiver operation mode can be activated with either an unlocked compensator or a locked one.
The Firecore F93T-XG laser level is a well-designed device. It contains all the necessary modes and features. Which are necessary for high-quality and professional markup.
Judge for yourselves. The maximum variability of supply. Now you don’t have to think about permanent battery supplies. Because there is a lithium-ion battery and an adapter for mains operation. Which is also a charger.
You can also purchase an additional battery and a separate charge to it. Then you can work with the device without stopping.
Well-thought-out switching of planes is done in such a way that you can leave either one horizon or one vertical. And this, for a second, is a fairly common situation, and as a result, it saves battery power.
And just as important, reducing the possibility of accidental short-term laser blinding yourself or others.
The presence of a markup mode at any arbitrary angle for non-standard projects. And the ability to work outside in Sunny weather with a receiver up to 50 meters in one direction. All this significantly expands the functionality of this model.
Three 360-degree planes that can be projected as close to the work surface as possible. A full-fledged plumb line and a discharge scale really make working with this 3D level very convenient.
The thickness of the laser line at different distances
So, at one meter from the wall, the thickness is about 1,8 mm.
At a distance of 5 meters from the wall, the thickness is just over 1 mm.
And at a distance of 15 meters about 3 mm.
This is a truly excellent result!
The possibility of mounting on different tripods
The FIRECORE F93T-XG laser level can be attached to all additional accessories available today. Since the base has two high-quality metal bushings with 1/4 and 5/8 inch threads.
The same thread cross-section is used for stanovy screws of various peripherals.
One of these accessories is included in the kit – a rotary base. Which allows you to slowly rotate the device around its axis. And also move to the sides for a short distance.
