Never used mine for agricultural fencing but worth the investment for arenas.
We fitted serval wooden gates over a large site all had to be the same height as one existing gate ground was all over had no trouble with the laser.
As with any tool bye the best you can afford

I have an ordinary Dewalt one with the extra laser reader and staff, they are super handy for doing a lot of things, once you have it you keep finding uses for it and it saves you lots of time, like setting gate posts in concrete and hanging gates as already described, anything really like the others have said that needs to be dead level from a datum point that may be a way away.

leicia and topcon here, both fantasic and wouldnt be without them, great for gates, menages etc. Both have digital readouts, it does make you a little 'anal' though as you start looking at 3mill as ten inches out! Not sure how or why you would use one stock fencing.

change my old one last summer for a self levelling unit, cant remember the name but its a subsidiary to leica, bought it from Frank Howard Tools (they have an online shop) came in at 350 plus the vat and we've been really pleased with it. it can also be turned on its side to give a vertical plane.
We use for arenas and double gateways.
As Pete said you cant often beat a humble stringline for setting out, proved many a "professional" wrong over the years.
