I purchased my 560 in Sept. 2007 and before the warranty ran out I had sent them back for repair twice for leaking liquid refrigerant from the case (while charging) and the vacuum gauge stopped working. Today the vacuum gauge quit again. I like using the 560 but it's expensive, unreliable and takes two months to get repaired. Has anyone else had these problems with Testo digital gauges?

I suppose if you had two of them, at least one would be working when you need it...
Sorry, couldn't resist

It seems like a lot of the tools and products made today are just junk and do not last long anymore.To the man who always did it right. I love you dad and I will miss you to much for words.

If products are made well, then they are more expensive. Consumers with a Wal Mart mentality want cheap.
If products are made well enough to last a long time, quarterly sales (and therefore profits) go down.
Consumers (American in particular) and quarterly profit driven investors have created the mess.
The few Testo items I own seem to be well made but a 560 is not in my toolbag.
