    These are issued to BG guys were they either get a red fail or green pass led for a Ze but me thinks you need a tester that gives you a reading I think Metrel does a budget tester

    Look at the site sponsor you can get a Metrel multi tester for £335 plus vat and dont get caught up with brand names because like Trigger says "Look after your broom.................."

    Listen this is not a lecture here but being stingy on your tester will only cause you grief down the road if you can spend £400 on a new I phone then get a decent tester if not then your approach to this trade will not benefit you

    £250 and calibrated. snap his hand off. only thing i don't like about the megger is the case. mine's been transferred to a flight case with plenty of space for leads etc.

    I refuse to use it as it bangs against my leg as I go upstairs plus the Fluke case looks and is the biz as you can store all of your lead without having to tuck them in unlike the Megger box it also holds a lot of my nick knacks leads etc plus you can use it as a seat at the CU and its good to carry.

    Still Megger rep not happy that I have a 1553 in a bright yellow Fluke case with FLUKE emblazed on both sides lol
