There are a good few threads on megger & fluke on the forums.

One in particular by test meter our forum sponsor which contains a comparison chart.


Personally, I'm a fluke man.:rockon2:

Have Metrel 3101 and Meg 1730, never use the Meg as prefer others! Each have their good and bad points but it is a matter of choice! Bit like side cutters, I love NWS others despise them! One man's Fluke is another man's Megger so to speak!!!

well, when you get it back, all repaired and good as new. test the 1000V IR range on said apprentice. bet he won't drop it again.

Surely once it's back from repair, you wont need to buy another one?
If you do though, I'd go with Megger and then you''ve got a spare set of leads.

sounds like poor training to me,surely the apprentice falls of the tower and leaves the meter safe.LOL

My apprentice would be expected to fall from the tower gracefully (so as not to alarm general public) whilst cradling my MFT to prevent damage or shock... or he could expect a shock when I give the bill, as he would be paying for any damage.:biggrin5:

I got a 1653 and prefer the megger due to the analogue display range on ir testing, the fluke just gives a static reading

I find it hilarious that it's always (and only) the apprentice who makes a c**k up! :wazzzup:

Where do you get them from!?
