His had an extra bottle that you can add brake fluid to a the fluid reservoir but looks like it was made for a car, for me, just need to keep an eye on the fluid reservoir as your running it, couple seconds of bleeding, then add more fluid.

His did not have it but I did see on Amazon they have versions with 2 vaccuum pick ups so you can bleed both sides of a dual front disk brake system at the same time.

Edit: found the box
Harbor Freight
