    Testo 570

    Does anybody own this manifold. I have almost bought digital gauges 100 times but always back out. It's either the 570 or a digi cool. Testo 570 just has so many capabilities.

    Check the Fieldpeice SMAN4 out. You won't have to worry about over tightening on these because we know it can happen sometimes and designed our valves to handle the abuse.

    I like this one...

    I know the title said testo but he did mention Digicool. There are a ton of guys on the forum that use them. Mine have been very reliable. A few coworkers had to stop using the Testo 550's because of repeated issues and down time sending them to Testo. They switched to Digicools and I have not heard of problem with them thus far.
    Gotta have the right tool for the job!

    Where is all the stuff MADE IN THE USA?

    If you are going to USE the capabilities get the Testo if not get the digi-cool. I have both and they are great but the Digi-cool is much tougher.

    The 1250 was rated for submersion but the the AK900 is not.

    I have a 550 and have had it in heavy rain with no problems.

    I borrowed a SMAN3 from a coworker and really liked it as well. The micro gauge was within 5% of my Bluvac (when below 500 microns). It was out to lunch above 10,000......

    I'm currently trying to workout a deal on a AK900. I like that I dont have to toggle between screens. The 550 will be my backup if this goes through ( only because it is older ).

    You cant go wrong with any Digital gauge IMO. They are all so much more accurate and responsive than analogs.

    The 570 might be overkill if you dont need all the options. Look into the 557 if you like testo.

    None of my suppliers have ever heard of Diggicool.

    It would seem that if the manifold was as robust as presented here, they would b in all the supply houses just as Fieldpiece and Testo are.

    I thought your uncle said you had a set of digi-cools that he got to use and you both didn't like them Maybe I'm loosing it and it was someone else .... So you have a SMAN4 now too?
