My 1586, 87V and 28II are made in the USA and i won't replace them for anything else. The only product of theirs i have that i know isn't made in the USA is 376... I have written Fluke and hope they give me a honest respones about products made in the USA. I requested a list of DMM and amp probes that are made in the USA and any other products made here.
I will be very disappointed if they completely stop producing products in this country. I do trust their testing products over all others and don't think i will be able to convert with out a tremendous effort and proof provided by another manufacturer!
I do wish Fluke had a DMM/Amp Probe that had all of the functions needed for HVAC work.
I would accept products made in Germany. They have a excellent reputation and produce some of the finest automobiles out their. Even the Japs copy their designs!
I have a Fieldpiece and like most said it does have a hard time reading zero but everyone in my trade school including instructors trust and use Fieldpiece, some have old abused meters that are still going
I have a mix of both. I find that Fieldpiece makes items more with the technician in mind. I use Fluke meters for the most part and Fieldpiece for my specialty tools. I recently picked up their wireless scale, I love it! I almost don't want to use it it is so pretty.
I STARTED WITH NOTHING, AND I STILL HAVE MOST OF IT!
