Going to buy a new tester, would prefer it to have an earth stake test function, currently use an older style Metrel Easitest. Does anyone have the Metrel 3152 XC with software, is the software easy to use and can you easily? prodice certificates from it? Are any other manufacturers software packages and ability to save test results any good?

Any idea how that stake less earth testing works?

There’s 44% off the manufacturer’s list price for Metrel right now.

Have had the Metrel Easitest MI3000 for about 4 years now. Its been a great bit of kit, but the test button is occasionally non-responsive, and its also in need of calibration.
I have just purchased the Megger 1711 (the most basic) it doesn't do phase rotation, the Metrel does. It doesn't have rechargeable batteries, the Metrel does, and its only for 240V working. It seems a lot easier to use, and has some nice features, like the two lead no trip test plus its calibrated and has a 3 year warranty.
Time will tell if its as good as its reported.

I bought the Megger 1730 7 years ago. Great piece of kit. But been back to Megger twice to get fixed :rolleyes:. Point to note, I was told by forum sponsor, if they couldn't fix it, it would have to go back to Megger. Does Metrel have a UK base?

Do like that touch colour screen mind. More things to go wrong?

The Megger software was ****.

I have been using a second hand Metrel Easitest for about four years now and to be honest it hasn't missed a beat and has done me proud, I am tempted to stay with Metrel but the chap who calibrated my tester today was pointing me in the direction of Fluke. I suppose it is down to personal choice.
