Power probe stierius power brake bleeder

Josh Diagnostician Maryland Posted   Latest  

This is a power brake electric bleeder is does work and builds pressure, no leaks. It is not a power probe brand its some sort of German brand likely the actually people who make the one for power probe

Link to actual product, note it is 120 volt not 240

No adapters included just what you see in the picture. 

The power probe ones new look to be between 1600 and 1900 online, how's $600 ? Or say $730 packed and shipped to 48 states?

An interesting piece of equipment. If you google "Power probe stierius power brake bleeder" there are a lot of hits, including a 4 minute video of the tool in operation. However, $1600-$1900, or even $730 is a lot of money. You'd have to be doing a lot of brake fluid flush/fills to earn its keep. Maybe appropriate for a coach or medium/hd truck shop where the fluid volume per vehicle is greater…

I disagree with it not being for indie use. There are several manufacturers that have bleeding procedures that require 50+ psi pressure bleeding. This tool and others like it are great for bleeding all types of brake fluid filled hydraulic systems. The one that pays for the tool that comes to mind is the old 1990’s early 2000’s ford ranger/explorer clutch systems with the slave cylinder inside…

I didn't say not for indie use, I said might be overkill for indie use, it depends on how often you need it. If you're big shop doing flush/fills every day it's probably worth the investment as it seems pretty slick to use. If you're a small shop and flush/fills are an occasional thing then there are less expensive choices. I'm all for having the best tool for the job, but I can't buy the…

My point is it is required equipment. Not a choice to decide if you are selling enough flushes. you can’t do repairs properly without it.

To answer your questions I do not need it or 10 liters, the only brakes I do are my own and full power abs on buses which use a different special tool. Yes they do sell adapter to fit nearly all makes and models tooldiscounter​.​com/product/power… images​.​app​.​goo​.​gl/QqB9D6TNyZ1bPg… That branik/gearwrench bleeder is nice but requires an air…

This is a great tool! We have had one for 5 or 6 years and I can't imagine not having it. I run a very small shop specializing in Euro brands we use it alot! In fact Josh if you don't get a buyer at your price (which is more than fair) let me know maybe we can make a deal on it and I'll take a second one.…

Open to offers, I'd just like to see it put to use rather than sit in my garage.

We have two of these units at work and for the most part they work great. One question I have is every once in a while after doing a fluid flush, the pedal will go to the floor. I will then grab the trustee Branice unit and re bleed the system to regain a firm pedal. My question for the guys that own them have you run into this issue before? When filling the unit, do you purge the system of air…

We do Mercedes Benz service and is a must have tool for some models (with SBC brakes) I would hesitate getting a used unit as we are on the 3rd one in about 20 years. No need to purge as there is a diaphragm separating the air from the fluid.

Have you verified there is a diaphrag? I can’t find a parts break down to verify this. I know the branick units are completely separated by a rubber diaphragm but my understanding with these units is it’s simply a tank with an electric pump
