Anyone on the fence about owning one of these this is a steal. I have one and its good quality and works like a champ.
The sale price is real, they only drop it to this price a couple of times a year then it goes back up.

Wow, that is a killer price. I bought my Airlift on Amazon for about $90.

I've wondered about the quality of Schwaben tools in general.

Given the cost of some of the "real" special tools that would never be recovered for a DIYer, I guess it may be worth the risk even if it works a couple times and breaks.

I have used mine about 6-8 times and have not had an issue with it. I doubt it would stand up to heavy duty use, but it should last me a long time for the couple times I use it a year.

This one has better construction than many that cost 3x this price, I use it often and never had any trouble with it. In DIY use I suspect it will be a one time purchase.

Thanks Trav, I've wanted one of these for a while and at this price how could I refuse. Ordered, set to ship tomorrow.

Used this tool yesterday to refill the cooling system on my 87 4Runner following the drain of the system and replacement of a leaking o ring. I couldn't be happier with how it worked, drew a vacuum quickly filled the system completely first try with no drama. Much faster and easier than using my Snap on spill free funnel and waiting for the system to burp itself which usually took the better part of an hour to be effective on my 4Runner that has a heater core and piping located higher than the radiator fill cap.

Thanks again Trav for posting this.
