This pump comes in very handy in different parts of the boat. You can use it to take out water sitting in tight and narrow places in the bilge and the best use for it is to suck oil from the dipstik of the engine (that is really great). however, ensure to let it run for couple minutes in a water with soap and then in pure fresh water to make it live longer with same quality.

This pump is adequate for the DIY engine maintainer. It is not nearly as fast or convenient as the much more expensive pro units. On the other hand, it did work. Warm up the engine for a few minutes, stuff the small tube down the dipstick, put the output hose in a plastic screw top bottle, attach the drill and go.

It does take two hands, one for the drill and the other for the pump. The process took about 10 minutes. I used a 12v lithium ion drill on high. It took a whole battery's worth. Have a second charged battery on hand.

I was able to clean up the plastic tubing with paper towels and managed not to spill any oil. Something about the tubing made the clean up a little easier than other pumps I have used.

The price still seems high for what it is, but it is cheaper that the other powered alternatives. The hand pumps just do not work.

        Installed fittings, line & valves from the pan plugs (twin 5L Mercs). Hook it up and away we go. All six qts from each side into empty milk jugs and done. It's a situation where you have to be smarter than the tool.

          It works but takes a electric drill (will wear your battery powered drill out), it takes almost 3 hands to operate, and it works very, very slow.

            I just bought it and used it in my twin Mercs 5.7 EFI engines. It works ok but a lot slower than stated in description. Make sure to stick the hose all the way In the dipstick tube. I had about 4 inches left to hookup the pump.

                  So my boat was on its mooring and the water rose to leak into the oil pan (long story). Bought this thing to work with my Dewalt portable. Didn't work at all until I switched the intake tube for one of narrower gage. Works great now. Don't think the drill was spinning the pump fast enough for the wider gage. Easy fix.

                      If your cordless drill battery runs down in a few minutes as some have said, then your battery was not fully charged. If you are so inept that you can't use two hands, then you don't want this pump. My 4.3 Merc holds 4 quarts. I use a gallon plastic milk jug to drain in. When it's full I shut the pump down so the unit sucks minimal air. Then run a gallon of soapy water through the pump followed by clear water to clean. Simple as that; the thing works great.

                          Had high hopes for using the drill oil pump to remove oil through the dip stick, but was disappointed when not one drop of oil came out. I ended up going back to my hand pump to extract about 250 ml of 2 liters. I'll try it again but there must be a better way.

                                    This drill pump is just not that great. Yes, it functions for the purpose it was created for. However, here are the down sides: 1) It is VERY cumbersome to use. You will need at least 2 people to pump anything. One to hold and operate the drill. One to hold the intake in the engine or transmission. 2) You need a drill WITH A CORD. A cordless drill will run out of charge before you are done. 3) It pumps so slow that you will go nuts waiting and holding stuff. 4) My pump burned up even though they said it could be run dry. There is a period in time where there will be nothing in the pump while you are waiting for the fluid to get to the pump. I found a FAR BETTER alternative. [@] You will throw your drill pump in the drink.

                                        I purchased this pump to extract oil from my boat engine. It is a complete joke. I warmed the engine up like the directions say and then started pumping....nothing happened. I tried the dipstick tube....nothing. I tried connecting a hose to the dipstick tube...nothing. I made up a short hose...nothing happened. I spent about two hours trying to get this thing to work and finally purchased a vacuum style pump and it worked fine. Don't buy this if you are serious about changing your oil.
