    I also like the DM20 but it won't withstand an encounter with an electric fence. 2000k allows you to read the integrety of the insulation / short to earth.
    Add the shock boot and the ergonomic shape and the DM 20 is tough to pass on.

    ML will disagree with me but the FLUKE doesn't belong in an irrigators paws, they are too accurate and too pricey for the information we gather and the abuse they take.
    The pro 30 that i am high on fits in my shirt pocket with my talley book and pen. I have told Bruce and Austin at Armada that many times. It is manually ranging and cheap. I could throw 1 a week away and not lose any sleep. As it is i usually give away 4 or 5 a year.

    My Fluke rode with me only, seat-belted-in with the RainMaster remote. Plus, my brother-in-law designed the 23III that I have to this day with no problems at all. Excuse me, but I LIKE accuracy. :clapping:

    Rumor has it that a guy named Dan cut his baby teeth diagnosing the bowels of some pretty complicated controllers, i would be interested in his view and what he supplies his crews for in field use.

    Some of you have seen this pic, but that was my first-aid kit.

    We had a 521, as well. If Jim had surfaced earlier, the're sure as hell would have been a TDR in the kit!
