Slowly expanding and growing shop needs advice on equipment

Recommended Posts

Hi,

We are a small family owned and operated shop that is bursting at the seams. As we continue to grow and are able, I would like to add to our equipment. What are your recommendations for equipment for a 4 bay shop for a coolant flush and a brake flush machine? I see what I think are decent machines in the $2500.00 range and that is ballpark of what we can budget. I appreciate your feedback.

I flush brakes daily on European cars, my investment in equipment is nothing. Suck out the master cylinder with a turkey baster, refill and open all bleeders, drip into a catch can. I haven't found a faster or easier way.

 

I own a Wynn's coolant flush machine, honestly it gets used very little but it does work well. We just don't do too many.

I have a CT4 coolant flush machine from BG products and I would buy it again or I would buy the one that vacuumed out the system and then lets the vacuum pull the coolant back in. but I really hate the sound of an air compressor. Like Swag Master said suck out the old but then I use the mighty vac pressure bleeder and zoom zoom its done and they are 300 bucks on amazon at the most.

Im Not a big believer in brake flush machines - I use one of the extractors, pull the fluid out - reverse bleed and burp and I'm done!

I have a robinaire coolant exchanger. I use it decently frequently. Mostly because we only work on German and a lot of cars come in with green garbage coolant that we recommend to flush out. Its easy money. Its amazing how uninformed and ignorant so many shops are out there. Factory recommends certain fluids, stick to it!
