Concur; Meggers standard charge is £280inc, or thats what I was charged. I did contact our forum sponsors, when my 1730 went wibble. But apparently if they can't fix it, it has to go back to Megger. I could not be without mine at the time for that extended period, so shipped it back to Megger. Does come back calibrated. Guess if you have other devices, thats not a consideration.

Perhaps Test Meter could comment on that.
Hi Midwest, I've just asked our repairs manager about this; we can fix most MFT issues in our calibration lab so it's very, very rare we would send them to Megger. (It would be something like needing new costly PCBs for us to do that.) All our repairs do also come back calibrated.

We're always happy to investigate and provide a no obligation quote or advise of other options moving forward.

Thanks for the reply. My issues, not yours, was turn around time and getting my meter back. So it had to go straight to Megger. Couldn’t take the chance you couldn’t fix.

No problem, I understand that.

In case you ever have need for repairs in the future, our turnaround time is normally very good, plus we usually use DPD to get things dispatched quickly. It's rare we can't fix things inhouse so if you ever need to send anything in, we'll always try give you a cost/time estimate as soon as we diagnose the issue. (Oh and we have hire equipment here too so if there was going to be a delay, I'm sure we could sort you out!)

An Affordable 2nd hand Fluke 1651B , for idiot proof low ohms testing.
( not as thorough as hi current surge PAT testers did, for earth continuity- but more useful !)

I've had my Megger 1552 for 8 years and it's still going strong. Had to have the cable plug plate replaced a couple of years ago as the internal plastic surround had snapped.

Tests can be a little slow to complete but TBH I'm in no great rush.

I'm currently running a Di-Log DL9083p And a trusty old megger mft1552 both very usable testers imho. I do love the megger more for consistency, especially as it has the high current loop test and 1000v insulation test. But for domestic stuff the di-log is perfect except it's missing a neck strap!
