Hi Gents ! I need to add a couple of more refrigerant recovery machines to my growing business. I would like some input on what you guys are using and are having good luck with. Price is also always a big buying incentive.
I have been informed that the NRP GS2000 is an excellent model. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in

What machines are you already using (going on your words "add a couple of more refrigerant recovery machines")?
I purchased an Inficon Vortex unit for my employer and it's held up all right. It doesn't get the daily pounding it might otherwise get riding in a service truck all day long, since I'm on site all day. And I try to keep my equipment running well enough so that I rarely need to use the machine. :D
yellowjacket r70 series and we have had no problems, about 8 units in use
I HAVE HAD A STINGER 2000 SERIES-RIDES ALL DAY-BEAT AROUND ALL TIME,2YRS OLD,AND BEEN USED QUITE REGULARY.ITS A FAST RECOVERER WORKS ON R22 AND R410 ONE AS GOOD AS OTHER.ITS A LITTLE PRICY BUT WELL WORTH IT.REMEMBER YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.EL-CHEAPO= TROUBLE.THESE ARE FINE UNITS,BEEN USING MINE FOR 2 YEARS NO TROUBLE JUST DEPENDABLE.WORKS ON ALL TYPES OF REFEGERANT ALSO.
The Infinicon Vortex is great. I have one on my service truck, it performs well and handles the rigor of daily use. I personaly own a Promax HP410 for my own personal use. It is also a good machine. Based on the performance of my Promax I've been kicking around the idea of getting a Promax ProVax. It is a recovery machine and vac pump all in one unit. It looks pretty decent. 6 cfm pump. I haven't found the recovery rates lised yet on the recovery side.
