Leak detectors

ScotY on Mon March 24, 2008 7:28 PM User is offlineView users profile

Refrigerant Type: R134a
Country of Origin: United States

Just wanted to ask...what would be the best (I know, loaded question) leak detector to get for a home mechanic? I don't mind spending a fair amount of money, but would want something that will last and end up in the junk pile. It would only see gentle use.

Thanks, Scot

We have been very happy using the Tek-Mat in our shop the past few years.

I have that exact unit. It's a good unit. Only problem I've had is if it ever inhales a big hit of refrigerant, it gets confused and needs to be switched off and back on. Which is no problem because it is ready to use within a few seconds of turning it on.

It appears to me that AMA has selected products to be within the budget of a home user, but they're careful not to sell any lousy junk.

Actually we select products we trust and use in our own shop. Most of our tools are the Mastercool line. Which are as professional as one gets unless you like to pay for a name! We have always tried to offer a fair price on our items. Biggest problem is people listing knock-offs under the same number for half the price. We all have to use some sort of numbering system! But when price checking buyers need to compare apples to apples in my opinion.
