Greenlee makes good products, hands down. They're a little expensive, but well worth it if you do a lot of service work.

I have an old Triplett 310

But as far as Digital meters, I'd go with a FLUKE. They're tough as nails. . . Megger makes good meters too. . My buddy has a Megger that's old as dirt with a hand crank on it, that's used to measure resistance only. Crank that baby up and it puts out 600 volts DC, so beware of the alligator clips!

Gotta say Fluke T-5-600 great unit does all I've ever needed and it's been kicked dropped burned and all sorts of abuse 8yrs old now. volts ohms and open jaw amps. hands down great.

I only use fluke. the 902 is a great model and the clamp on feature with the temp probe is useful, even for plumbing. A multimeter is never something to save money on.

I use the fluke 16. It will test the Rf on caps when servicing furnace blower motors and condensers.
And I think the fluke 323 Inductive clamp for amps
