    Well der of course u need a compressor, you can keep pumping I keep sucking lol, no different between both they do the job the same, if your a mobile mechanic without a compressor on board then hand pump is for you, I do my work from home. Plungers fail the sucker keeps on sucking and its also good for removing transmission fluid before you change the filter no spillage when removing pan can your pump do that.

    I can't see any real advantage either of those 2 devices have over a good old One man bleeder kit or just a length of hose and a container. Giving the brake pedal a few pumps the old fashioned way will flush the master cylinder better than trying to suck it, or pump it out from the callipers

    Cleaner, quicker, easier when the lines are full of air or cannot be easily gravity bled where there’s not much height difference between master and slave. Gives you much more control.

    Trust me, it’s a real timesaver. I always suck the fluid out of the master first and wipe out the reservoir and then fill with new fluid and bleed.

    If your doing cars with ABS then before pressing back the brake pistons to fit new pads crack the nipple bleeder first, with a tube hooked on the nipple going into something of course, stops the fluid from pushing back up the lines.

    You do it the hard way....No need to crack the bleeder nipples to replace brake pads and rotors, even with ABS fitted
