Defective Gauges

I purchase 3 high pressure gauges from Northern and when I got them I headed down to my boat in lower Baja Mexico. When we got there, I unpacked the gauges (for my dive compressor) and installed one, and found it to be dead would not register any pressure, then I installed the second one, the same thing, then when I unpacked the 3rd one, I noticed that it read about 540 lbs without being installed, a 3rd defective gauge. I am now in the process of trying to get them back to Northern in hopes they will send me GOOD working gauges! One time is bad, twice is really bad, and three times............no comment, I hope they can do a lot better for me!

Pressure gauge met my needs

I needed a pressure gauge to measure the output of my snow plow pump as it wasn't raising correctly. I ordered this glycerin filled stainless steel gauge figuring I would put on a hydrologic quick disconnect and get my answer if the motor was good or failing. The NPT thread fit a standard QD and within minutes of receiving it in the mail I had the answer that my motor was good, saving me a few hundred dollars. Product arrived quickly and did the job perfectly. I would recommend!

This gauge is very easy to use with a variety of attachments. I use it to check the hydraulic pressure on my hay baler. Simple and measures up to 5000 psi.

Bought to use to diagnose hydraulics on my tractors. A little higher range than I really needed, but the dial is clear and easy to read through the 0-3500 range I typically use.

This is a high quality gauge at the right price. I use it to check the discharge pressure from a high pressure paint system. If you find it for less any where else please let me know.
