Agreed. But some duct tape and nylon tube can fix that.

And you have a water pump for when the basement inevitably floods.

Okay if you didn't require shipping I guess..
Many places charge an arm and a leg for S&H

EDIT: They seem to have some Free Shipping but Membership Required to Order?
Being a local shop, i just did a pick up and it was cheaper when i got it. It was $55. You may want to local marine shops in your area

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
Seadoo's and boats.. I'd have to flip my seadoo upside down to drain the oil without one of these...

Damn I think you just convinced me to buy one. I was just about to walk away from this, but I've got a few engines (including a doo and a boat) that make this worthwhile. Will also be a game changer on the hard to access riding mower plug...

I've had this for a few years, the real winning use was transmission fluid on a buick. It developed a leak at one of the lowest hose connectors. I was able to drain the fluid then change the connector without trying to catch all the fluid that would otherwise have come out. Also makes power steering fluid drain and fills a breeze. I'll be changing the diff fluid in the Subaru soon and this should help since the plug is about halfway up the diff.

Well made and easy to use!

Their weird system adds in the shipping charge then gives you a promo credit at the final step.

Can this also bleed brake lines?

BTW, for oil change, you can use this contraption. But it is too powerful for bleeding brake lines as it sucks the brake fluid reservoir dry quickly.

Oil can contain a lot of fuel so I'm not sure I'd use a vacuum on it, especially if it's a recent Honda. Cool idea though, but still not enough room for the 7L of oil in my car.

Thanks OP now I need a deal on a gallon of brake fluid to change fluid on all my vehicles. My wife won't be able to complain about spilled brake fluid on the driveway. You can control the flow of brake fluid by how far you open the bleeder screw. Also you can have an assistant topping up the reservoir while you work at the wheels. I plan to suck the reservoir dry first and fill with fresh fluid after wiping the bottom clean of crud.

Is this overkill for small engines like lawn mowers and snowblowers?

Yes, in the OP photo, on the right side - the coiled hose with the blue clip is for bleeding brakes. It has a soft rubber tip that fits/ seals over the bleeder valve - works well

The bigger one is hand pump only while the OP version has the option for using shop air - not a big deal.

The bigger one is also missing the hose for bleeding brakes that is included in the OP.

The bigger one goes for like $89 when it's on sale

I've been thinking of buying one of these for a while now. However, I'm concerned about not having all the maintenance records on paper if I do oil changes myself when I go to sell the car. Thoughts?

No! Don't drain your reservoir dry, that will introduce AIS in the system and be hard to bleed out. Always keep adding fluid as you bleed the system. It used to be easier when you could get the ATE Blue fluid, so you can see when the new fluid got to the bleeder, but it confused and idiots.
If you want to be thorough, be sure to cycle your ABS module to get there fluid out of the there.

If your car is under warranty, just keep good records of your changes, like the receipt for oil and filter, I take photos of me doing it on that day.
Legally it's on the dealer to prove what you did caused a failure, but it could be a headache if something did fail.
Now you're more likely to do a good job than the high teenager they have changing your oil, but if you did make a mistake it would be on you.

Audi even designs their engines to have a non reusable drain plug because they expect their dealers to use an extractor.

I bought it , found it completly useless, after half an hour manual pumping I was able to just extract 50ml !!
Ended up with returning the item, I also had a story with their apparantly "No sale is final unless your satisfaction " empty slogan!!
