    I think that the only bad thing about the sanden style is that it's hard to keep oil in it. There is no internal oil reservior like a york, b/c it's normally lubricated by the freon in the A/C system. That is the only drawback as far as I know. If you could figure out how to keep it lubed, then it would probably work.
