    Is the above tool any good?

    Got an anton apm 150 at the mo thinking of changing it to the testo is it a good upgrade or not?

    I have them both and use the 510 for burner pressure checks. When I need it for anything above 100mb my 150 is in my bashing bag.
    The 510 is a nice little manometer that keeps my service bag light.

    Lots of different opinions but me personally think Testo is far superior with most of there equipment

    I use both as well, I got the 150 because I test service pipework between 1st and 2nd stage regulators. My 510 is used for burner pressures.

    then there's my 120mbr J gauge and my 60mbr water gauge too. Most eventualities covered!

    It's very sensitive though as it goes down to 2 decimel points. I swapped for the anton back a while as it's waterproof and I have a habit of leaving it hanging off the meter for a while.

    testo is good gear but expensive imho, but its your choice, I use a kane 455 and find it does the lot and annual services are the cheapest around.

    Used the testo.

    Hate it.

    Got an Evo sprint 2.

    Hate it.

    Give me a 455 any day of the week.

    I have a broken screen and the service does not want to fix it. ;-( Does anyone have a malfunctioning Testo 510 or somehow spare parts?
