Tool for flushing brakes

Anyone purchase one of those Motive pressure bleeders? Need to get the brakes flushed on my 06 Rubi. Which model did you purchase and from whom. I've been looking at ones on Amazon and have been getting kinda confused on different models. Some people's review say they leak but maybe they didnt use the correct adaptor. I have some other cars I need to do so purchasing one is going to be a for sure thing. Any opinions would be very helpful.

I prefer Speed Bleeders and flush the system by refilling master cylinder as I drain it.
Cheaper and easier, IMO.

You can just gravity bleed them.
Open the bleeders, attach a plastic hose and run it into a can.
Keep the master full. When you see clear fluid come out you are done.
Never done it on a ABS vehicle but I see no reason it would not work.

Never tried that.... without pumping the brake pedal?? Isn't it VERY slow?

Are you talking about a bleeder ball, that you attach to the master cylinder lid and pump on? If so they work great if you have the right fitting for your vehicle. But honestly they arent neccesary. Also why are you flushing your lines did you get water in them? If not your talking about bleeding them. Which if you install speed bleeder valves is incredibly easy. If your putting on a new master cylinder there is another method for that which uses a kit that usually comes with it in the box.
