    G5 recovery machine

    I bought one of those little suckers since you guys seem to like them. Boy is that thing FAST! BUT, it sounds like a thrashing machine, shakes, rattles and rolls. That normal?

    Yeah mine does sound like that,but I can tolerate it because it does not stay on long That is by far the fastest machine I have ever seen.

    pulls so much for a light machine

    I'm impressed with it.

    I don't think there's many guys that would complain about shake, rattle, & roll as long as it sucks good.

    You only get to pick 3 of the following features.

    fast

    quiet

    light weight

    low maintenance

    Appion picked the 3 that matter.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Sound's just like mine. I'll admit I worried a bit about the vibration at first, but it's a super machine even though it does shake, rattle and roll.

    By far the fastest and lightest recovery unit I have ever touched ! I have had mine for about 3 years now and never had a problem with it . The great thing about them is that you can also use it to charge a system . It makes dumping 500#'s of refrigerant into a system a breeze .

    Did you know Appion uses your comments as a testimonial?

    Talked to those guys in St. Louis and they showed me your comments.

    My G5 is actually quieter than my old one but I can't remember what the old one was. I think it was a Stinger. I rebember all the screws shaking out .
