They dont make them any longer. I don't use it much anymore since I transitioned into HVAC. But when I do use it it's a life saver.

Anybody else?

I still have mine as well. Since I've only done HVAC, mine is just about brand new looking even though it is at least 25 years old.

Still comes in handy when you have a stuck comp that checks out electrically.

Rock that baby back and forth still she breaks free!

nice pic but I still dont understand how is it used. if a comp. is siezed and wont break loose with a good kick or a hard start cap whats the point in doing any more testing even if the windings are good!

is that the strictly commercial model?
No. It's more for 120v units. You need to use an adaptor for 208-230 units. There is only one meter that is dual purpose for amps and voltage depending on which way the toggle switch is positioned.

I have a analyzer model HA1 made by Universal Enterprises that is probably 20 years old. Any one else ever use this model? I haven't used it in some time but it always worked well when I needed it. I googled it and I see they are still available.

Not meaning to horn in on a thread but, I have a Model A-20 that I've had for years. I got it from a friend of mine who retired out of the AC business years ago. This thing looks practically brand new. I'm thinking about selling it but have no idea what it's worth. Still has the instruction book with it also. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I have had a couple of them over the years, but there is allot of extra bells and whisles on them you really don't need. I made my own for my first 20 years in the buisness, That along with a good dead blow hammer usually did the job of freeing the pot up, if not, it was time to make the compressor a boat anchor.
