RCT-V5 Digital handheld rotary compression tester

Post by ian65 » Sat Apr 16, 2016 6:47 pm

Anyone got any thoughts on this..... pretty cheap if it works compared to the extortionate price for the genuine Mazda tester......... $350 USD or about £250 sterling

Old Mazda technology vs the
RCT-V5 Digital handheld rotary compression tester made by rotarycompressiontester.com

Tested along side of Mazda OEM compression tester thru research and development.

Presale units are not going to last long.

Got it last year and cost me £267.
I was told from Stuart Turnbull that I was the first man in UK got it! :lol:
Read out was fine and don't have problem with it.
Overall, it's a good product.

that's good to know it does them all. as it's always good to know from someone who has tried it out and seen it works ok.

This guy sells some also. In batches so you need to keep an eye out when he puts some up

It looks really good, especially with the little printer.
Be handy if some UK shops for rotary engine parts stocked them.
