    best manifold for my 1250 DCs?

    ive used the titan 2 and they done a great job and really i think they are like over 5 years old and im not sure ive ever even rebuilt them.. ive heard horror story of a lot of others so at some point this year i will replace them just to get some new ones ..

    so what are the best options right now to mount my DC onto?

    i may even get some Aks next year so.....?(im about over these testo 550s as my r22 gauges)

    list some...

    Try the Brute II.

    I finally decided on t he Brute II 46081 for one of my AK heads to mount to. Great manifold if you are a die-hard
    evacuation thru your gauges types like so many others.

    Is the Brute the one with 3/8 hoses? I have an old one that I bough in 93 or so, very little use on it. Thought I might set it up for just vacuume.

    In that case I recommend the DigiCool ball valve manifold. I have my 1250 on it and love it.

    If you don't evacuate with manifold, no sense getting a bulky 4 port IMO.

    After I put Nylog on all connections I have had zero problems. Mine came from UEI and were pre assembled. I believe the digi-cool ones from Doug come in seperate pieces.

    I ordered directly for the sales rep by where I live so he probably assembled it for me trying to be a nice guy.

    i was referring to this one http://www.refrigeration-engineer.co...gm%99-Manifold , that one at TT doesnt look anything like the Digicool Paradigm manifold

    is this http://www.refrigeration-engineer.co...gm%99-Manifold not available anymore or still in test phase?
