Wish they sold just the pump and the liquid could be extracted directly into a cheap $3 Home Depot bucket.

Looking to get one for an oil change on the car, don’t care about the “dirt” left at the bottom of the engine.

very useful tool for any oil changes.
I have the 7L non-pneumatic one and the pneumatic feature is nice, but pumping to start and then let suction do it's thing, is not that hard
I've done trucks, cars, ATVs and boats with it but have a warm engine, cause cold oil is thick and doesn't flow well

I don't see the point in this thing. How is it useful for oil changes? You still need to change the oil filter so you'll have to jack up the car anyways. Why spend $100 on a pump when you can just unscrew a single bolt to properly drain the oil and get all the crud out of the oil pan.

I guess it could be useful for sealed components like the transmission or transfer case. but for oil changes, it just seems like a waste of time

Depends where your oil filter is. Many cars have one that's under the hood/at the top. There are also a lot of cars that have reachable filters.

Before someone makes the comment that you aren't draining all the oil, please use google. We've beaten this horse to death in 100 other threads.

My truck has its oil filter on the top of the engine, so I never have go under it.

If all you'll ever do is a car oil change, then yeah it's not useful.

Draining other fluids like PS or brake fluid might be useful enough to warrant the money, but I doubt it.

For me the real draw if for the toys (ATV, MC, boat)

I'm not sure a home depot bucket will hold much vacuum. The vacuum pump tanks have extra bracing for strength.

You could just get a vacuum pump and a few fittings to hook up the hoses. A shop vac can also pull some vacuum.

On the cheap, this might work, but probably not enough vacuum pressure. You'll still need to buy hoses and fittings.

My filter is on top, I never need to go under the car. And I get more oil and crud out of my pan than with bottom draining. Over 500mL more. And zero mess.

I still use it on cars with bottom mounted filters, as I get more oil, and there's still less mess. It's only a problem on newer BMW's without dip stick tubes. At Mercedes, the dealer uses a vacuum pump to change the oil.

good price and very convenient for oil change. my friend have this and i borrowed it once. end up getting my own, but the crappy tire version, as i needed larger size to hold 8L of oil.

I know a lot about cars but I really don't understand the difference between a pneumatic version and not...This requires a compressor to use?

Gas thieves have been around forever, do you expect them to spend $100+ for something they could do with a hose and a bucket?

Or do you think they can use this to somehow steal a cat?

Either way, :facepalm:

It's manual/pneumatic, you can use the manual pump in the handle or hook up a compressor.

Anybody know how long that dipstick needle/tube thing is? It looks kind of short in the pics.

ACTUALLY you probably could get more solids from the bottom of the oil pan with this thing.
The only way to get all the crud out is to remove the bottom of the oil pan. Which often requires a BREAKER Bar Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes
There also are oil pans that don't even have the plug at the lowest point on the oil pan. Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes
Also some manufacturers say change oil filter every second time which is nice if you are using expensive Synthetic oil filters and have lots of oil on hand
because you are a hard core RFDer Smiling Face With Open Mouth

I definitely would change my oil more often with this
as previously I had the attitude of once the car is up on the Ramp
might as well do the filter too.

Hmm So how much extra was the taxes and shipping?
Okay if you didn't require shipping I guess..
Many places charge an arm and a leg for S&H

I'm betting the hose that comes with that will no way fit down a dip stick tube
