    megohmeters

    looking for my first megger purchase here. will be used on pm's and occasional diagnosing troublesome units, you know the usual stuff lol..

    i have fluke meters but for the amount of times ill be using it cant justify that price.

    in previous threads it seems most of the community here uses the supco...

    i just saw this http://www.extech.com/instruments/pr...=35&prodid=144

    anyone use it? what do you guys think? beachy you were going to get an extech meter right? did you how do you like them as a manufacturer?

    i like this because i can select the output voltage..... has low ohm capabilities (dont know what i need the low ohm for lol)

    any help?
    Gotta have the right tool for the job!

    Where is all the stuff MADE IN THE USA?

    I've never had great luck with ExTech holding up to field use, But I understand they've been sold so who knows you can beat their pricing so I always kept eying them.

    When I was looking at them A Friend of mine whose an Electrical Eng. recommend this one said it was a good "Bang for the buck"

    Ya I know what you mean.

    If go with ExTech let me know what you think and how it holds up.

    Up sale is when say, You by a meter for $100 and after say 6 months it just found to be Junk. They'll give you full credit if you a buy a replacement say valued at $150.

    In short full credit if you buy up in price
