I did it for 20 years + independant contractor
Bought a lot of tools thru the Ltd. company

No tech is going to buy a Hilti on his own as an employee unless a large tool allowance
How many 1" holes in a day(thru concrete) does the average hvac tech...
So your're trying to tell me that you expect to use a 18 volt cordless drill , set on hammer function with a 1/2"-1" concrete bit to go thru concrete walls?

Thats right Ridgid are not USA made
Ridgid like new Milwaukee cordless are made in China
You may have the narrow profile battereis,not as good there larger cousins.
There is 2 types of batteries for the 18v Ridgids.
If the company you work for pays for a new drill every 2 years that fine ..........if YOU have to pay for it every two years whos the sucker?:LOL:
As I posted I do know that they stand behind their warranty IF you took the time to send in everything AND regsiter on their site.
But a lot of people don't take the time

No one is delibrately trying to screw you.
Do you own a set of these tools?
I do and have friends that have them.
I used to have Milwaukee V-28's
Milwaukee and Ridgid are owned by the same company now.
Probably the best way to do it using approved tools
Additionally if in a plant use the necessary PPE for the job
Yes that was done a fair bit
Sometimes us kids would go down to find items and woe betide if the jars were left on the workbench and it contents strewn on the bench
Yes they probably are but keep in mind you are new to this game and there is always something new coming out.

I will just have to wait to see them in the physical.
I own a 28II and the meters are close but the 28II takes double A batts and the 87 still takes a 9volt

Strange they don't stock anything or know much about the product.
I can look online also, Fieldpiece had a suggestion for...
Like in my post, I am in Ontario a province in Canada:yes:

Did the Fieldpiece search at their wholesale distributor lists and came up with 3 local handlers in my place/area in Ontario.
So I thought

I used the Ideal solenoid voltage tester(vol conn) for 3 phase drops in a couple places.
Vibrates when voltage present.
I've used a lot of meters since 1975 in this "trade"
Amprobe, Sanwa,Hoiki, Mars, Radio Shack, Simpson, Greenlee, Fluke just to name a few.
Theres also a few off brands I care not to remember.

couldn't remember exact which it didn't do
I used one, another guys when first came out
20 less than new to repair? geez
no point fixing.
Uh yeah 902 doesn't do flame rod checks no micro amp dc? if I remember right? I've used them, 902 before.
I just have a yellow jacket water style manometer
Isn't one of those Gossen around $800 euro/$1000 bucks?

Biggest thing I find amusing is the amount of tools workers are "expected" to provide to get the privilidge of working for a company
Unbelievable... even we provided test meters, pipe wrenches and...
General minimum wage in Ontario, Canada here is $10.25
Yes I hear you about the tools
That is very fair that you buy them, I used to do that to it helps
Sometimes you wonder though
Another item to remember to is if you are working for a wage above minimum and a bit in this trade plus buying tools then you really got to wonder what you are doing in it.
Thats just not near...
