Default Feedback on Two Brake Bleeders

MV8000 Automotive Tune-up and Brake Bleeding Kit

I purchased this for about $35.00 and I think it is good for occasional use and not for more than 3-4 times a year. I used it more than that.

Over three years
1. The pressure gauge plastic covering fell off ( still useable).
2. The nipples for the plastic lines on brake bottle bleeder are soft, not hard plastic and fail to seal after a while.
3. The thin plastic cover for the brake bleeder bottle fails to seal after opening and closing many times.
4. The brake bottle is thin walled plastic and can get some hairline cracks.
5. Vacumn handle broke off and not all steel.
6. Housing of vacumn gauge broke partially.

Can't hande general use and being bumped around a little.

I always also put it back in original package when finished.

Purchased a Lisle 75200RT.

Thicker brake bleeder container, cap, nipple connections and fittings.

Tougher steel vacumn gun. Better carrying case.

Will see how it goes. Used once and works fine. About $60.00 but lists much higher.

Still sold but no longer manufactured.

Thanks for the in depth review.

Lisle makes equipment for the auto repair industry, thus more robust.
