"I wished I had bought this tool years ago! I am a professional mechanic and have been in the industry for 27 years. I use this tool several times a day. It measures the amount of oil coming out of the engine so we can see if there is an oil consumption problem while changing the oil. You can use it as a conventional drain barrel as well. The screen in the funnel keeps you from loosing small nuts and bolts that may drop into the funnel during a service. The tool tray is quite handy for loose hardware and tools during a service. When full, it just takes shop air to pump it out in under three minutes. I love this tool and our shop is actually considering purchasing 3 more to help make us all more productive."
"I talked my company into trying one of these. In less than a month, we had 3 on the floor. They have been in service about 10 months now. I cant say enough about the time and clean up savings. High volume shop, and we use them on motor oil, transmission fluid and can even get water off the bottom of a fuel tank with this rig without draining the whole tank."
"This was something I splurged on a little bit. It works great for changing oil in anything and with a 24 gallon holding tank you don't have to mess with emptying it all the time. My cars take 8-9 quarts of oil each so I can do 12 oil changes before having to empty it. Assembly was not rocket science, took me about 15 minutes, and all you need is an air hose fitting to match your setup. If you change oil in a variety of machines, this works great for sucking oil out of small engines on push mowers too. Buy this item if you have an air compressor, even if you don't don't think you need it. Modern cars are just too low to keep crawling under."
"This tool is a very well designed and built tool. The vacuum mechanism is not loud like i thought it would be. Just hook up 100PSI air and wait about 3 minutes and you are ready to remove oil via dipstick tube. The machine will suck a lot of oil without having to hook back up to air if you don't want to drag around the air hose. I leave it hooked up because it does not bother me. I have a four post lift and also use the mounted funnel. It is plenty big and should you want to empty it fast just pull a vacuum on the tank and open the big ball valve and the oil disappears almost instantly. I have a big 330 gallon tank I store used oil in and it transfers the oil to it easily. You can vacuum the oil directly to the see through contaniner on top and be aware or how much oil you evacuated and then push a button and it ejects to the lower tank and is ready to be used again. Great tool. everyone who sees it likes it."
