General Tools NGD8800 Handheld Combustible Gas Detector
The General Tools NGD8800 is a combustible gas leak detector that uses a semi-conductor sensor to detect the presence of most combustible gases including methane, hydrogen, iso-butane, ethanol, ethylene, tetracholoroethylene, dimethyl sulfide, toluene, formaldehyde, diethyl-ether, ethyl-acetate, dichloromethane, ammonia, and R-22 with a sensitivity as low as 5ppm for methane. The NGD8800 gas leak detector is ideal for checking automotive exhaust and fuel systems, liquid and gas-fired heating systems, propane tanks, cracked heat exchangers, and manholes/sewers.
- Detects a wide range of combustible gases
- User adjustable sensitivity (High/Low)
- Tricolor visual display
- Audible and visual leak size indications
- 15.5” flexible stainless probe
- Ambient concentration reset
- User-replaceable sensor
The General Tools NGD8800 is easy to use with a three-button interface - a power/reset button, and adjustable Hi and Lo Sensitivity buttons. The gas detector features an audible alarm and a tricolor LED bar indicator that ranges from green to red to indicate the gas level concentration. The 15.5 in. flexible gooseneck probe is useful for hard to reach areas.
The gas leak detector provides two levels of sensitivity and defaults to the high sensitivity setting when turned on.
The NGD8800 combustible gas detector features an ambient concentration reset function that sets the meter's sensor to ignore the present concentrations of ambient combustible gas. This feature allows the user to pinpoint the source of the leak by enabling the gas detector to register only higher gas concentrations.
A leak check vial is included with the NGD8800 to verify that the gas leak detector is functioning properly.
The General Tools combustible gas detector is powered by four AA batteries with a battery life of approximately 40 hours. The meter includes a low battery indicator and is programmed to turn off after 10 minutes of inactivity to preserve battery life.

Good around the job
A good general use unit to keep around the site. Takes good readings and helps keep the workplace safe.
This is a good budget friendly model if you need a gas detector. Not a lot of bells and whistles but it you need solid measurements for safety hecks on a obiler install this is your tool
Simple and Solid
Now this obviosuly isn't anything fancy but it's a good workhorse meter that gets the job done. Good little addition to your toolbag and I like the light up graph style feature. I'd recommend it
I like it
Can't complain about this. My first time buying a General Tools product and would not be afraid to do so again. Zero's out quickly and the lights are bright. Solid!
I feel these are must have devices. I use them on every job i mess with gas. Its the first thing and last thing i use just to make sure everything is up to snuff. Simple to use and the led lights make detection a breeze.
Maybe a touch to expensive but solid performance so far and I don't foresee any problems. Overall satisfied with the purchase and the colored LED display is a nice touch.
