A couple of years ago I helped my mechanic to bleed the hydraulics after a ram service and he got me to spin the wheel first one way with a bleed valve open, then he closed that valve and opened another one & I spun the wheel the other way. We did this 3 or four times until only hydraulic fluid came out. Has worked fine for the last two years. Definitely a two person job.
