Correction on the JCWhitney price on the Mityvac complete kit that includes brake bleeding equipment. It is 59.95 rather than the 39.95 that I quoted yesterday. Sorry.

BTW that URL for FALCO tools is no longer any good - they were never an authorized reseller and they are now almost out of units and you can't order online anymore...

This looks like a decent one-person brake bleeder:

Power Bleeder

This is the cheapest price I could find on the web for this particular bleeder:

The electric powered brake bleeders offered by Power Probe are imported from Germany. Anyone know the name of the German manufacturer?

I was just reading the instruction sheet on the Motive Products Power Bleeder. It says to not pressurize over 20 psi. Is this enough to bleed the ABS system then? Someone mentioned 26-28psi was needed.
