I am looking to experiment with attaching a laser to my machine to hopefully help driving a straight line. It would be best if I can see the entire laser beam, not just a dot. I would need it to extend around 500ft - 1,000ft. The machines grind up asphalt from the roads, so it is very rough conditions. There is a lot of dust & vibrations. I could build a rubber mounted bracket to eliminate most of the vibration though. There are many times where the stripes on the road are not straight. I was thinking if a put a laser on as a guid it would help out tremendously. I'm sure by now you can tell I am very new to lasers. I would appreciate any ideas or suggestions offered. Since this is more of a test right now, I would prefer to keep the cost down as much as possible.

Thanks again,I look forward to your feedback.

One problem: no matter what direction you're driving, the laser will project a straight line. If you want a guide as to where you're going, that's fine.

If you want a guide as to where to go, perhaps a laser on a tripod would work better?

The lase3r would be used only on straight roads. The tripod might come in handy though. Do you know what kind of laser I would need?

If you are using the laser at night it will work geat, but in the daylight it won't be visible. See this

Well, if there were for sale yes. The last time I checked there was a big wait for them
thanks. The only green laser i want is a rugged water-proof laser. This way will probably let Jet Laser know their Ti is in demand. I wonder what makes them production, or is it back log.
