Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged As All Get Out!! As much as my tools get abused this meter was a must have, and it's proven its worth every time my clumsy self drops it or gets it wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe Meter I bought this meter about a year ago and liked its safety features Readings were quick and stable. A big plus is It uses three AA alkaline batteries that can last up to 600 hours. The unit is packed with a pair of PVC test leads that does not plug into the meter easily, it requires a lot of force to get them seated properly. This premium Fluke multi meter should have been packaged with a set of premium Fluke silicone test leads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged Meter I bought this meter a few months ago the primary reason why I purchased this model is because of its rugged skin its able to survive use in high humid/hot/rain and constant temperature differences in the Gulf Coast. Very dependable high resolution helps the instrument be more accurate.Also the capability to be used as a bench meter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite I've used the 80 series for decades but when looking for a new meter for work I came across this one. Just about all of the same functions and features as the 80's but in a rugged case. Brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bulletproof...well, close. I purchased this meter back in March while I was working in an automotive R&D test facility. I have had several DMMs, but usually a splash of diesel or a hard drop would kill them. I finally splurged and went with a meter that I knew I'd be happy with, and I'm glad I did. I can rinse this off if it gets something nasty on it, and now at my new position in an aerospace R&D group, it's still trusted enough to be allowed through calibration and is my go-to for quick measurements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid meter in more ways that one Finally took the plunge and bought a Fluke... very glad I did. Never going back to the cheap $20 ones that are unreliable and tend to break with any abuse. I was leaning towards the 87V, but ended up buying this one instead as it is built like a TANK. I work in the industrial water industry so the added protection sealed the deal for me. Accuracy, features, longevity... all things you expect from a Fluke are demonstrated here. Great product.
