Recovery and Reclaim are two. Completely different things..
I'd just buy a regular recovery unit like the G5 or a yellow jacket and be done with it... No need to have the huge unit that most automotive shops have..
Amazon has the Bacharach Stinger it's r410a compatible and you need that with the price of r22 skyrocketing, it can recover many refrigerants and it has an optional 80% tank shut off switch to allow unsupervised recovery of larger charges.

Reason: i can't mention the price
Its quicker except for set up and then once liquid is gone you have to swap hoses and recover the vapor, which is slow slow. With the appion you hook it up go do something and in 10 minutes or so its empty. Doesn't matter if liquid or vapor, it drinks liquid and swallows vapor and doesn't miss a beat. Hands down the g5 is the best recovery machine on the market IMO.
