I feel this kit lacked sufficient vacuum to fill the lines on a new brake system. I really had to do a lot of pumping to get fluid to each wheel.

A one man bleeder that worked

I used this product to bleed the brakes on my T-Bucket. It took me a little time to get use to seeing bubbles in the line continually during the bleeding process. The bubbles were apparently coming from around the threads of the bleeder which is expected when using vacuum. It did get the job done with minimal effort.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Worked as good as my old one which was very old & had broken twice, I kept fixing it & using it, but thought it was time for a new one. New one has been improved.

I Could Not Get This To Work

fromHalifax, NS, Can.
I tried everything to get this product to work without success. It would not pull enough vacum to move the fluid/air through the lines. After about 1 hour of trying I went back to the old method "my wife". It's not worth sending back - lesson learned.
No, I do not recommend this product.
