Hello I am looking for recommendations for a new cable tester

I’m used to using the STM –8

It seems to have stopped working I do believe I dropped it one too many times

I didn’t really want to spend a lot of money on buying a new one I think they’re around 480.00 or so

I still have the remote testers

I was in a little bit of a pickle so I just bought one at Home Depot Klein tools it’s called the scout pro 3 cable tester

Wondering if anybody has used this particular model it’s OK but it only comes with one remote I don’t wanna invest too much more money in it if I was gonna be getting something else

I know it’s not a certifier and I was just curious if anybody could recommend something

I’m curious if anybody still uses the STM – 8

Thanks

JD

JD,

I think if you can run a search on this site, there are several posts on this topic. But, may be older and some newer test equipment may be available. We have a couple of the Byte Brother tools that the guys are real happy with from what they tell me. Not sure, but seems they were over $300 at the time.

Hope this helps.

I think the Ideal Linkmaster is affordable and compatible with the numbered dongles. It's in the $100 range, but you can search Ebay for a sub-$100 replacement STM-8. That should get you through the short term.

I've used the STM8 for many years, after recommendations from others on this board. Found one on ebay. I also dropped mine once too often and found a replacement on ebay. When I break this one, I'm done.
