    any suggestion for a Kane 504 ? I want it for oil and gas boilers. It's £65 every year for cailabration.

    If you had a bit of spare money left I would go with testo but that’s my personal preference

    What Testo 327? But are they designed for oil boilers?

    Another vote for Testo - had a 327 now got a 320. Does a lot more than just fga if you get the optional sensors, and service costs are reasonable. Whatever you choose buy it from a reputable retailer, got my Testo off amazon to save a few quid and it turned up with European software, took it to Testo service centre and they swapped out the software and issued a new calibration cert for nowt, but cost me half a days work.

    Ive got the 504. Its basic but does the job. I don't use it day in day out so suits me. Like you say its £65 for a service and calibration and the sensors are long life.

    Testo 327 is a great piece of a kit. You can use them for all type of fuels , gas, oil lpg whatever you prefer.

    I have only ever used testo not cheap but I think it is the best good design lots of functions, and is multi fuel also with sensors can be used for differential temperature. Pressure testing.

    Maybe so but when your starting out on your own for the first time there's so many over head costs. I'm sure you can understand mate. I think Kane Are better value for cash than the testos.

    I have had my Anton for 8 years and it's practically in new condition. If it was a cheapy I'm sure I would have not taken care of it at all.
