    Default Dadant's Atago Deluxe refractometer

    I am wondering what Atago model is sold in the Dadant 2010 catalog, shown as Dadant "Deluxe" M00594.
    Anyone know?

    Thanks in advance,
    Sheri

    Hi,
    Not an answer, but Blue Sky has a couple to choose from.

    Thanks, lots of outfits sell them. I'm not looking to buy. Just wondering if this is the same better hand held Atago that Mann Lake sells, the HHR-2N.
    Guess I'll just have to call Dadants tomorrow.

    I purchased that model a couple years ago from Dadant because it was the HHR-2N. Now I am wondering about the pro's and con's of the digitals.

    I think the ones from Hong Kong only read Chinese honey and only have one readout, 18% moisture content, even for pure water!

    I have one like the one above and it seems to work well. But after some research they are only acurate to +or- 1%. So that means if you think you have 18.5% you may have 19.5%. The same look and style as this one is out there that has a +or- 0.2% and it will cost you about $100.

    Good luck, I really like mine even with the posibility of a varyance. Look for one that comes with a calibration brick and oil.
