Robinair RG3 Review

The RG3 is for smaller projects and appliances as its recovery rate is one of the lowest amongst those in this review. It uses only one cylinder to provide refrigerant recovery so this explains the slower recovery rate compared to the two cylinder models. We included it so that you could see what the differences are between one and two cylinder refrigerant recovery machines. See the Robinair RG6 for their two cylinder version.

If you’re only doing small residential projects and appliances, then this may be the most economical choice for your projects. The RG3 is light weight and easy to carrying up onto roofs or over obstacles.
