Been a while since I have posted anything.

Just got an advertisment for a tester called Inspector III by a company callled Tasco Inc. Their website is www.tasco-usa.com
Would like any one who has used thir stuff to let me know what you think of it.
Thanks

Looks like they are shooting at the Ideal SureTest. Home inspectors love them because a minimally knowledgeable person can come up with a lot of gee whiz info for a report.

I know that the Tasco Inspector II has been around for a long time, but I have never personally used it. The Inspector III must be their newest offering.
Tasco is the company that makes Greenlee branded circuit tracers and phase rotation testers.
I do own a Tasco circuit tracer that I bought around 1998 that still works, so it must be pretty well made.
It is the same as the older Greenlee model 2007 tracer.
They changed their tracer design a few years ago to an auto ranging type, now known as the Greenlee model 2011, that really blows chunks, IMO.
I looked into the Tasco Circuit Mapper a few years ago when they first came out, but at around $800.00, I didn’t think it was worth it.

Is there a UL label on the Testers, or did I miss it?
