I'm not sure why there are so many bad reviews for this, but it is a great product. This is my second one since I accidentally ran over my first one. Both have been very useful for much more than bleeding brakes. Priming lines, removing liquid from low places (in the home as well) and checking for vacuum leaks just to name few. Both of mine have had very acurate guages and have never leaked. I took a picture comparing the readout to a pretty expensive industrial guage. The container to catch the brake fluid is 120 ml, which is plenty to bleed your calipers. If you are flushing your entire system, you will probably have to dump it twice per wheel. It has a vacuum release lever which is useful for repeated testing (distributor vacuum advance etc.) It has held vacuum for about 20 minutes for me in the past so I guess other reviewers have either gotten a dud or were not using it correctly. Great product, lots of different fittings and a solid design. As long as you don't run over it with your car, it will last a long time.

I never feel compelled to leave a review, but I'm going to make an exception. Used to change brake and clutch fluid in my ZZR1200. Device does have a learning curve, which ended after I did my clutch fluid. Changed both front and rear brake fluid in 35 mins. I'm only giving 3 starts because like someone else said, with a few tweeks this could be a really good kit. Use teflon tape to get a seal on the bleeding nipple. I little bit of silicone goes a long way in helping to seal the attachments to the hoses. I didn't need to use silicone on the catch can, but did have to readjust a few times to get a seal. Just hook everything up and make sure you can hold a vacuum before you open the bleed valve. The only other issue was getting the hose right so the catch can would stand upright. Easy tweek that took a second to find the right angle. For the price, you can't really complain about the few tweeks that it will take. Going to change the brake and clutch fluid in my car today so I'll post an update if my feelings change.

Purchased this to bleed the brakes on my F-150. Had to go back and buy the auto refill kit to make the job easier to do. The refill kit should be included in the original kit.
Couple of hints, make sure that you have gotten a good seal on the small fill bottle, first time had a bad fit and was losing vacuum. Heard the leak, opened the top, resealed, much better vacuum.
Next time will follow Popular Mechanics advice and use kit to suck out as much fluid from the brake reservoir before starting. Would have made the job go faster.
Also, when opening the brake bleed valve, only crack open till fluid starts to flow; any more than that you are just sucking air from around the threads on the bleeder valve.
For something made in China, not all that bad, but wish the country of manufacture had been included on the web page description, probably would have bought something else had I known.

The plastic is high quality, the seals are silicone lubricated, the gauge does not bounce nor is dampened with slow response, and you will find the same model sold to science laboratories. I did not buy it to bleed brakes! I did buy it to: extract automotive fluid samples for analysis and troubleshoot/activate automotive vacuum devices. To my delight a very detailed manual is included covering topics like which EGR ports have high or low vacuum, testing fuel pressure regulators and even how to use the device's gauge to diagnose a multitude of mechanical failures. Because an engine is a vacuum pump, this device can differentiate sticking valves to blown head gaskets by watching the gauge behavior. There is no switch on this model to provide pressure.

The mityvac may be ok for testing some engine vacuum issues, however for brake bleeding it is very problematic, messy and will leave you wondering if there is still air in the system. I bought this after reading mostly positive reviews and was very suprised to se how poorly it functions for brake bleeding.

The problems:

1) My handle broke after only 4 uses - there is a metal pin that holds the handle on is is prone to becoming disloged

2) If for some reason brake fluid gets into the gun it will swell the seals and make it inoperable. I had read this and figured I would drain the plastic cup once it got to a half full amount. This did not work - through the bleeding process you end up getting brake fluid into the suction nozzel and eventually it will find its way into the gun.

3)It is nearly impossible to get a proper seal from the bleed nipple to the gun. The gun plastic cup leaks at the top no matter how tight you make it, some of the fittings have slow leaks and the worst part - most bleeder valves leak air in from the threads so no matter how little you unscrew the valve you get a slew of airbubbles that in most cases will not allow the vaccum to pull the fluid. The directions suggest surrounding the base of the valve with grease or wrapping it with white teflon tape. Even after wrapping with white teflon tape it will still leak and does not provide a decent seal. Preassure bleeding here is the only real sollution.

4) The clear tubing is not flexible enough making it leak a bit on the brake nipples

5) The awkeward configuration of the gun attached to the plastic cup makes it very hard to keep the cup upright and from tipping when you need to unscrew the bleeder valve and also hold a wrench.
