    Anyone using NAVAC tools ? Thoughts?

    Hey guys just wondering if anyone is using navac tools? I am just wondering about the quality and where they are made and so on ? do you guys like them do you use them on a regular basis? I am in the market for a new vac pump and i am torn between a navac and fieldpiece but i would also like to know if anyone is using their tubing tools or manifolds and so on ? Thanks in advance Jesse.

    I have been looking at those tools too. Looks like quality tools with lots of bells. But no one seems to have anything to say about them, good or bad

    2 sac do you sell them ? I know tru tech tools sells them I dont know if we could get someone from tru tech to give us an opinion on them or tell us if they are comparable to other brands. I cant see them carrying a line of tools that they did not have faith in.

    No I don't. One of our suppliers is pushing them. He brought in a battery powered 2 cfm vacuum pump and I was less then impressed.

    Saw some videos of that little battery powered vac pump on youtube and i was more then impressed. Although for me I really dont see myself buying one unless on a roof or somewhere power isnt close i dont see a purpose. Most rooftops i work on have a receptacle close anyways its in the code here. I was just more interested in some of there other tools like their tubing tools and vac pumps i am in the market for a new pump but i know some guys are having issues with the fieldpiece and i am not really into the appion recovery machine but i seen navac is coming out with one to compete with the fieldpiece.

    If they do what they claim and can do it without breaking down, they look like a great option. I'd be skeptical as well without any recommendations. My biggest concern with the battery operated pump is lithium batteries don't give you any warning when they fail.

    The plug in Vacuum pump is actually a DC motor, built in analog gauge. Seems to perform well. The mircon gage is good, has a settable alarm feature to let you know when your desired mircons are reached.
    Personally my favorite is the pipe reamer tool. IMO this is the best reamer around. Instead of having a 3 blade arrangement, it has many blades allowing for a smoother action.

    And everything is made in China now.....

    I understand that too once you get accustomed to something it is hard to change. I was just wondering if anyone is using there stuff because there other stuff was tired and needed replacing. I am in the market for a new vac pump but I am also looking at some of there other tools and they seem nice. I agree with Artietech almost everything is made or assembled in china. I just wanted some feedback on them from people that have them. Bryan Orr on HVAC School always talks about there things but I have yet to see many people even use them. I cant find many places that even carry there line of tools. I might have to order from Tru Tech tools and have them ship to me in canada.

    Tru Tech tools has some "combo" deals on the vac pumps right now.

    My boss ordered all the techs the tubing reamer and flaring tool. Reamer is pretty nice because it doesn't cut too much material off. The flaring tool is nice too but I still use my Yellow Jacket automatic flaring tool with the grip on it. It's never failed me, just remember to drop a couple drops of oil on the cone.
