OEM brand revealed, great value

I just purchased an EXTECH 800Amp AC/DC True RMS clamp meter, model EX730.  I was quite surprised shopping Sears when I came across this meter as it is identical hands down.  The EXTECH is covered with Craftsman but all the layout and lettering is the same.  I looked at the manual and compared it to my EXTECH manual and is like a photo copy so convinced this is the OEM maker for this product.  I purched it because the reviews were quite high and it has outstanding features and high in accuracy when compared to others with same features and accuracy costing way more.  I am mad that the real EXTECH is >$40.00 higher in price from ****** for this same meter so wished I had came across this one first to save money.  The only difference is the case color.  I have not compared with others for accuracy and just received it so can't speak to satisfaction yet.

I needed to replace a meter that i use everyday in the hvac field. I saw the capabilities of what this meter could do and thought it would be ideal. The very first chance I had to use this meter will also be the last. Working on a rooftop unit that was blowing fuses, I was trying to track down an obvious short. I replaced wiring from the disconnect to the unit because this meter showed resistance between two of the three wires (3-phase) and ground with the wires disconnected form the unit. After replacing the wires I checked again and this meter still showed resistance on the wiring. I had to borrow a maintenance mans meter to finish diagnosing the equipment. Not only did I waste man-hours, I feel that I looked incompetent to my customer. In all fairness, the voltage, ammeter, and capacitance parts of the meter seem to function properly. If I can't ohm out components or check for continuity accurately, I don't trust the other readings the meter shows.

Sorry for your LUCK!!!!!

|

I bought this to work on generators and the hertz reading are all over the place!! Not accurate at all!! I had to buy another for the job and sears would not return the meter!!!!! I am stuck with it and not tooo happy!!!!! Sears is not what it use to be a friendly and knowledgeable store. The associate had no clue about the meter just told me it was electronics and they would not return the item as it was 9 days since i bought the meter!!! It was used and could not offer to repair or replace!!! So Sears sorry for your luck I am now buying my tools and METERS somewhere else. No wonder your going broke!!!!!

Good meter for the price!

|

As a car audio SPL competitor, a good clamp meter is an import device in your tool bag. Although this clamp is a little slower than a Fluke, it is a good meter for the price. You get a clamp capable of metering AC as well as DC amperage for the same cost or cheaper than a Fluke that will only meter AC amperage.

Clamp Meter does the job

|

I own twelve 30+ year old vehicles and use the meter to check current consumption. Since most multimeters max out at 10 Amps, repeatedly blew fuses in the meter. This meter does a good job of measuring current without disconnecting the circuit.

Not accurate

|

<p>This is my second clamp meter for today. First one was the same brand but not in the professional line. This one suppose to be a very accurate unit for the fact it is in the professional line. To give you some examples of measurements; a 3500W water heater is according to this meter (73756), about 1.8Amps. A 1500W heater is 2.1 Amps.  The bottom line is people buy Craftsman because of a long history of reliable products. I personally buy this brand from quite a while. I am trying to be a steady client of the store but this is very discouraging.</p>

works great

I thought I wasted my money accidentally buying this, the next larger size unit. Bingo, needed it just last week for a diesel engine starter on a boat that started fine with booster pack. One of the techs spent about an hour checking harness, batteries, switches, and the like before borrowing my clamp meter. Problem solved except now the other techs will want to borrow it also. LoL
