    Smart probes + more

    Tried posting in tool section but no visitors there!

    Looking to upgrade in this world a bit with some new fancy tools, Id like to hear some feedback from peoples experiences. I will say Im not a fan of digital gauges so this is a big step for me. Ive seen too many malfunction, call me what you like.

    Smart probes
    -Mantooth -love the charging port capability
    -Testo- price point
    -Fieldpiece -350 range is tough to beat
    -Parker Sporlan Smart Service- have not seen a bad review yet

    YJ series 41 manifold/gauges
    -Ive got a manifold for replcemebt gauges only or I may buy the whole set

    Evac Kit - would love to pull a quicker vacuum with at 1/2 hose!
    -Appion
    -Bluvac
    -Accutools

    Digital manometer- yes I use a U-tube, also have borrowed a UEI for more pressure
    -Fieldpiece SDMN5 or 6
    -Testo
    -UEI

    Any more recommendations or tools you cant live without? Happy to hear any thoughts

    I have Testo smart probes, I use them when there is maybe a question of charge, I use temp probes much more than the pressure. I use the Testo 557 Bluetooth manifold, I love it, I don't use the Bluetooth like I should but love the manifold, 550 is pretty much the same, I like the external micron gauge it has.

    Appion hoses are second to none in my book, I use those with my JB 200N with no faults

    SDMN 6 is my manometer of choice, it has the vacuum pump for testing diaphragm switches

    Pile of other stuff but that's pretty much what you asked lol.
    I know there are a bunch of preferences and these are just mine

    Thanks for the reply! Ive been kinda leaning towards a SDMN6 for the extra features, its only $100 more. Hard to break away from my old habits of analog gauges and U-tubes.

    I still have my zepplin gauges, cant beat them, I like the versatility of the digital manifolds and their really accurate when I compare to the analog, almost to a fault as the digital reads way more finite. you wont be unhappy with the SDMN6, comes with hoses and probes, bag to keep it in. have fun getting new tools!
