    appion or yellow jacket?

    im in the process of buying a recovery machine. I have narrowed it down to appion g5 twin or yellow jacket xlt. I can save about 100 bucks if i go with appion but I've learned the hard way that the cheaper route is not allways the best route espcially with tools. any suggestions on which one to go with?

    Appion works great, yellow jackets are slow IMO.

    appion but you need to put the CPS refrigerant transformator as well.

    if you use the appion on a warmer day, it will take you hours to recover 10lbs of juice.

    I have the appion g5. its quick. but if you let the tanks heat up it wont be so quick. the new cps recovery machine is faster then the g5. if you read the specs they are much faster when using the push pull method

    Appion for sure... however as noted on a warm or hot day the Appion will be slow.

    I bought the CPS refrigeration cooler MT69 (http://www.cpsproducts.com/product/recovery-MT69/), connect it between the pump and tank, put it in a bucket of water, and you are good to go.

    Take a look at the Appion TEZ-8 vacuum pump... expensive, but well worth it! One can literally change the oil WHILE pulling a vacuum. And it is FAST!

    the appion is a great machine. as for the refrigeration cooler. we've never needed it. We always put our reclaim drums themselves into a bucket of ice water. does the same thing as the refrigeration cooler without having to hook something else up.

    Appion and build a worm out of 3/8" tubing for it. Look at the CPS molecular transformator, you can build it, don't spend all that money on a coil in a carrying case.

    Ever tried it? I swear it's faster than a tank in a bucket of ice.

    Another + is when you're up on a roof using 50# cylinders. Instead of a trash can full of ice it's just a 5 gallon bucket.
