Record Dr V
This RCM has actually been around a long time. Obviously manufactured in China (as are many RCMs) it all but disappeared from the market for a time not too long ago. Now it is back with Record Doctor V. (That’s 5 in roman numerals). This is a vacuum RCM for $200! It is all manual, but has a built-in vacuum. Vacuums from the bottom. It is not dissimilar in design or function from the Nitty Gritty units only at a fraction of the cost. In my opinion, if it were my money, I’d get a Record Doctor over a Nitty Gritty in a New York minute. Just my opinion.
