SEALEY BRAKE & CLUTCH BLEEDING SYSTEM VS820.V4
Sealey’s VS820 emerges as the winner in our test. Even though its brake fluid tank capacity is not the biggest, at 2.5 litres, this remains more than sufficient to conduct a typical flush on a modern vehicle. The horizontal side-mounted pressure gauge is a disadvantage, as is the pressure release button instead of the rotary knob that graces the Clarke. We also found that the pump required more effort to use compared to the Sealey VS1205 – however, at least the internal fluid pick-up pipe touches the bottom of the bottle. We liked the high-quality 90° metal fittings on the cap that proved to be leak-free throughout the evaluation. We also appreciated the vertical brake fluid filler, with its large aperture and separate cap.
While Sealey’s largest offering has a high retail price, we also considered that it can be obtained via official agents for less than half the cost, which swung our judgement.
