• Automatic Oil Drain automatically drains system oil captured during recovery, and the display reminds you to empty the bottle. Gradations on the container clearly indicate how much oil needs to be replaced.
• Refrigerant Charging allows users to select a charge mode from either the high side, low side or both, eliminating guesswork.
