My old recover unit was becoming a hindrance with a leak at the flange located inside the unit.
I repaired it a few times but the leak would inevitably come back, plus after 10 years of use it was time to get a new one.
After reading reviews and examining prices I bought the Robinair RG3 Portable Refrigerant Recovery Machine.
My first impression of it was wow shiny, than after moving on to its functionality I found it to feel solid and well built.
The unit is an oil-less unit that has a high pressure safety switch which shuts it down if the pressure goes above 550 PSI, and of course it will works with any refrigerant R-22, R410a, R-12, R134a and so on.
The RG3 is the little brother of the Robinair RG6 which is a twin cylinder design and can recover refrigerant quicker.
The RG3 is a good unit for residential recovery but if quicker recovery time is your goal than the RG6 is a better unit to get although more expensive.
So far I am impressed with the Robinair RG3, keep in mind this is the first unit I have bought 10 years, hopefully this one will last as long.
If there is any change with it or I have any problems I will update this post.
