Pressure-Vacuum Pump
« on: November 08, 2013, 01:58:44 pm »
I'm looking for a pressure/vacuum test pump.  Power Probe makes one. But it is ovrr $2OO.  There is a Matco unit for about $100 that looks like it will do the job...model MVP 5000.  Anyone have experience with these or have an alternative suggestion?    Thanks

Thanks, Guys.  I don't know how I missed that thread.  I figured there would be one over here in the Tool Shed.  Just flat out missed it.  Thanks for the information.

I use the MV8500 myself. It does both Vacuum and Pressure without having to change your setup.

Yes, the one I have is the 8500 that does both pressure and vacuum.

I also have one of the Plastic MityVacs that is considered to be vacuum only but it will also do pressure up to 12 lbs but you have to add a pressure gauge for it be useful. I use a automotive combination pressure vacuum gauge tee'd into the line.
