“I want a recharge machine that can put in exactly what the car calls for; if you put too much freon in a car, it won’t work, and you can actually blow up the compressor if there’s too much pressure.”

“If I buy a recycle/recharge machine, I want to know my distributor carries the replacement filters, so all I have to do is call him up when I need to service my machine.”

“It’s very important that I use a refrigerant identifier with every charging station because it’s my equipment, and I don’t want it damaged from the wrong contaminants coming in.”
