Have any Aussie members bought them in Australia or only through US e-bay?

I am not 100% convinced yet after reading several posts about pros and cons of this Mityvac and Power Bleeder.

Can Mityvac suck all of the oil in the engine and can I use it for brake bleeding?
Some argue that it does not work 100% and some say that we need Motive Power Bleeder for brake bleeding.

Only a way to get them here in Australia is through ebay with rediculus postage of U$60.00.

Are there any other products which can do both jobs.
Thanks for your inputs.:bowdown::bowdown:

I'm not sure MityVac has one unit that will do all three things; vacuum testing, bleeding brakes and pull old engine oil.

If I remember correctly, those are three different units.

With all the boating you do in Australia, there should be plenty of oil evacuation pumps available locally. It's the only way to do an engine oil change on boats with inboard motors, unless you take the boat out of the water.

The vacuum testing unit is very useful for tracking down vacuum leaks in the engine.

The brake bleeding kits is the recommended solution for changing the brake fluids. Using the pedal to pump out the old brake fluid is not recommended for our cars.

Well, I bought a Pela oil extractor today for A$140 which was not locally made but from USA. I feel like being ripped off as I have no any other options.
I may exchange for a bigger one, 14L tomorrow.
