Some phrases I can´t find or work out in Spanish. (or have never heard)

"Take him for all he's got." (get everything you can out of sb)

"Milk him dry" (to milk sth - sb - get everything thing there is from sth - sb)

"Bleed him dry" (to bleed sth - sb - get everything thing there is from sth - sb)

Are there any equally graphic expressions in Spanish?

Well the 'milk him' is 'chupale todo lo que puede' like 'they're milking the company for everything they can get' - chupan todo lo que pueden de la empresa. The bleed him is definitely 'chupar la sangre de alguien' (sounds like vampires doesn't it. Don't know the take him for ... I wonder if these are in the phrasebook?
