I used Flukes when I was doing my course but have now got a Metrel Easitest. Worked out cheaper than the flukes, easy enough to use and it doesn't trip rcds will doing zs tests! Only faults with it are the test lead with the button on it is really bulky and quite heavy and unlike the Flukes you can't just plug in the leads you want to use as they're all in a block.

I have a Megger 1552 but it didn't come with GS38 standard probes :_|

Lovely and easy to use, though I could do with an extra hand to wield both probes and test button :)

Anybody see the film Spy Game where the electricians were 'testing' the blown distribution board with both probes in one hand? I liked that! :DApplaud Smiley

costs about 80p on top of normal postage.....

Address it to the managing director stating your dissatisfaction with their poor service!
