Dewalt and hitachi seem to have good quality . Dewalt for cordless , my xrp 14.4 v has lasted me 17 years ,batteries are just startijg to fail me .
Milwaukee saw-zalls are the best
Ended up getting an essentials, tried 3 shops round my area and none stocked the bluelab and I couldn't wait as mine was bust. Thanks go Everyone's opinions
Right – here’s my experience, as a warning.
I’ve never done this before – I’m an experienced gardener, but have never grown anything hydroponically. I did read up a lot, on all sorts of sites. Consensus *seemed* to be that all pH meters go bang quite quickly, so buy cheap, replace often. THIS IS WRONG.
I made the mistake of buying one of the yellow ones for about £12 (they’re everywhere on eBay and Amazon etc) – what a load of SHITE. No matter how often I calibrated it (several times a day, after maybe a week of use!!!) it would quickly drift away. Until I realised this was happening, I was upping and downing my bloody nutrient solution constantly – astonishing I haven't killed my poor little plant, but she seems to be doing well still.
I posted a negative review on Amazon; the Chinese manufacturer quickly responded to me, and sent me another one. This one doesn't work at all, always freezing at 0 or 7 when I try to calibrate it. Removed the batteries etc several times as they advised me; no success at all.
I’m trying to do this on the cheap (I know, I know, always a mistake…) as I’m a bit skint, and not even sure dope is the answer for me. But I’ve learned the hard way that there are some things you can’t skimp on, and the pH meter is one it would seem.
Hope that helps. Oh – yes, sorry, I’ve bought an “Essentials” one now for just under £40, as it seems to be a reasonable compromise between quality and price, but will report back here in a week or two. Also bought the storage unit thingy and some calibration fluid for it.
Was a weird one as i grew up (80s/90s) with these both being really popular well spoke of brands, but that really doesn't seem to be the case now, all Bosch stuff just looks plasticy to me now, and I bought a B&D 18v hammer drill a while back and it looks the part but just feels a bit piss weak :P
I also have to research and procure a full soft landscaping setup later this year and have all the joys of researching what is and isn't pish :P
My sig appears to be inflicted with entropy
SLH & Incredible Bulk DWC Actually good, honest.
Thanks, IT IS GOOD ADVICE.

probes are dead easy to get cheap as it turned out,mine was £12 plus a £2 phono adapter and a new 9v battery,so for 35£ i got an excellent bit of very accurate kit thatll last me a lifetime.
Hanna , milwaukee , oakton are excellent , many different quality grades, range from 40$pool to 3000$lab quality . If you get the cheaper ones , please take care of them and they will last you a good while .
