I need to buy a multifunction tester for testing 3 phase installations.
Looking at Fluke 1662 Multifunction Installation Tester or
Megger 1741 Multifunction Installation Tester.
Has anyone used these and which one would you reccomend?

I have a Megger 1730. Never used it for 3 phase testing. In the 6 years I used it, it was a very easy device to use. I did however, had to send it back twice to Megger for repairs, at £280 a pop.

Can't comment on Fluke, good products, as I have the Fluke T110 voltage tester, which provided good service. It was replaced by Fluke however, on a product recall last year.

Don't discount other makes, the Metrel MI3000 is a solid bit of kit and a good price: Test-Meter
 
Plus one for the Megger here.
I’ve not used the Fluke, but I’ve got the 1741 and it’s a top bit of kit. 😎👍

i'd buy the 1741 if i were a total tool tart ( which i am ) but pension and part-time small jobs only stretch to essentials (beer, van, and fags) with anything leftover to 'er indoors for luxuries like food and bills.
