Description Technical Specs Manuals / Apps / FAQ's
The Disto D8 has been discontinued.
The replacement is the new Disto D810 touch.

360 degree tilt sensor
The in-built tilt sensor on the Leica Disto D8 does more than just determine angles. The combination of angle and distance measurement opens up completely new measuring possibilities, such as being able to quickly and efficiently determine horizontal distances over the top of obstructions, or the height of a tree, even though it has no reflective points. With the Disto D8, roof slopes and facade areas can be safely and rapidly measured from the ground. The Leica DISTO D8 is even capable of simple leveling tasks, digitally and without the support of a second person.
Digital Pointfinder
The digital Pointfinder on the new Disto D8, with 4x zoom allows you to point quickly and easily at far-off objects, even in bright sunlight. Although the laser dot may not be visible to the naked eye, the target can be clearly seen on the 2.4" high resolution color display, allowing absolutely precise distance measurements to be made, even over great distances.
With the Leica Disto D8, measurement results can be transferred wirelessly and error-free to pocket-PCs or PCs using the integral bluetooth technology, where they can be further processed quite easily in Excel, AutoCAD or other software.

Free software
The delivery package contains the transfer software "Leica DISTO Transfer" - easy to install and with automatic updates. The AutoCAD plug-in additionally allows convenient planning and drawing with your AutoCAD software.

Other Features ...

Outside viewing
The Leica DISTO D8 is designed with many functions and features to make measuring easier, particularly when you are working outdoors. Its large, high resolution color display presents the measurement results and additional information in an easy to read format.

An IP54 rate housing provides protection from the elements and job site conditions.

Power Range Technology
Power Range Technology allows you to measure long distances. Measure up to 100 m (325 ft) without a target plate and up to 200 m (650 ft) using a target plate, without having to take a single step.

Spot-on measurement
The laser makes it possible! The laser dot is clearly visible, therefore you always know exactly where you are measuring, which is especially useful in difficult to access places. So you can take absolutely precise measurements, even over long distances.

Details displayed
Additional information about the measurements, e.g. room dimensions or angles, is available at the touch of a button.

Indirect measurement
With the Leica DISTO D8 you can also indirectly determine the elevation on inaccessible buildings. Thus the Leica DISTO can be a life saver as well.

Types of Indirect Measurements

Single Pythagoras measurement
Just two measurements are enough to indirectly calculate the horizontal or vertical distances. It is important to ensure the 2nd measurement is at right angles to the target object, which is easy with the minimum measurements feature.

Double Pythagoras measurement
Using a tripod you can measure horizontal and vertical distances. The Leica DISTO determines the results for you out of three measurements. Functions such as minimum and maximum measurement help you find the correct measuring point.

Double Pythagoras measurement (chain values)
With just three measurements, you can also determine partial heights, e.g. balcony or window heights. This is, of course, possible horizontally and vertically.

Indirect easurements with the tilt sensor
The tilt sensor of the DISTO D8 has a measuring range of 360 degrees. That means with this device even overhead inclinations can be measured. This is especially interesting when determining roof slopes.

Horizontal distance
The tilt measurement allows you to determine the horizontal distance, even if the object cannot be directly targeted. This is particularly useful when obstructions like walls or hedges stand in the line of sight.

Height measurement without reflective points
Building or tree elevations that don't provide suitable reflection points can be determined with the dual tilt measurement. Point with the laser to the lower target of the requested height and trigger a distance and tilt measurement. Then direct the digital Pointfinder on the upper target and carry out a tilt measurement.

Roof slope
With this function you can, for example, measure a roof slope of a house from long range distances as well. For this you need to carry out two distance measurements, at which the Leica DISTO simultaneously determines the tilt. The final result is automatically calculated from this measurement.

Altitude Profile Measurement
Measure a known reference mark with the device and then measure from each of the relevant altitude differences. When the measuring points have all been recorded in one direction you can then determine a cross-country profile with the measured horizontal distance and the height difference.

Disto D8 Special Functions

Trapezoid function
The trapezoid function is used to quickly and safely determine roof slopes and frontage areas, for example. You only need to take three measurements, and the result appears on the display.

Trapezoid function with tilt sensor
If access to the object to be measured is limited and measurements can only be taken from one position, then this is simple with the integral tilt sensor. This trapezoid function can also be used to quickly and safely determine roof slopes and frontage areas.

Triangle function
The triangle function helps you quickly and efficiently to arrive at the area of a multi-cornered room. Divide the room into imaginary triangles. Then use three measurements to determine the areas of each of the triangles, which you can add together as you proceed. Finally all you have to do is read off the result.

Stake Out Function
Two different distances (A and B) can be entered in the device and then be used to mark off defined measured lengths. At each measured length, the display shows the current marking distance and a direction arrow. Additionally, an alarm signal starts to ring at a distance of 4 inch from the next stake out point.

5 of 5 Disto D8 October 11, 2013
Reviewer: Jerry Bird from Dallas, TX United States  
I have previously purchased and had great success and benefit from Disto products.  I has ready to move up to a better unit.  The Disto 8 allowed for the additional benefits I was looking for.
