You got that exactly right. I just wonder how well it works. but if it takes air out of a brake line it should be stout enough to take milk out an udder :lol2:

It should work but I don't know about the constant pressure. Maybe some milkers will chime in.

I would like to have a milker on hand for either a orphaned calf or to drink some fresh milk but 500 bucks for a milker I may use once a year I can't make that math add up.

Didn't see it mention a pulsator anywhere. Guess that would be Skyhigh pumping that bulb thingy.

I think that it would be easier to milk by hand.
It would take forever milking one teat at a time and squeezing the lever. Anyway, a milking machine does not suck the milk out of the teat with a vacuum.

I would not waste my money on it. If you are going to get a goat, You can milk it faster by hand than using that machine.

Thanks chippie no I was thinking of a dairy cow. I just wanted something convenient and lil work but looks like it will be either by hand or buy a milker lol it looked like that vacuum thing was doing pretty well.

I have an EZ Milker. It works well enough. I replaced the vacuum pump with one made for a vehicle. The vacuum line gets your hand away from a kicking foot.
It is quicker to milk by hand if the cow is broke to milk and the faucets are long enough. It is the ticket for those with short handles or for horses.
