Next, press the pressure relief valve and then pour the extracted oil into an appropriate container. System includes, foot brace, extraction tubes and garden hose adaptor. Includes one 49 3/16" hose and two 34 3/5" hoses.

After looking for several alternative products this unit provided the ideal solution for my marine application. I have a twin engine Yahama jet boat and fellow owners appear to have trouble extracting enough oil during their annual oil chance. Coupled with the fact the hold is tight quarters and the only method to remove oil is using a unit like this. My observations are:a.) Extract twin engine oil in tight quarters, b.) contained extraction tubes that fits oil reservior access requiring different diameter openings, c.)simple instructions to operate, d.) capable to extract 6 quarts of oil without interuption in a short time, e.) secure knowing oil will not spill due to good construction preventing possible clean up or environmental concerns while in storage lot. At first I thought the price was high for an extractor as well as a little bulky to store afterwards but the job was so easy to complete that my concerns were not warranted.

Previously owned a Top Sider oil change unit from West Marine but thought this would work better as it is easier to see the oil. I have a 2011 350 Mag engine. When I went to insert the dipstick tube, it fits, however it will not go all the way in as there appears to be a slight curve in my dipstick opening on the engine. The material the tube is made of is not flexible and you can not force it in without taking a chance of damaging the engine. Bottom line, I could not get it down far enough to create enough suction to pull out any substantial oil. So basically it is useless and I don't think I'll be able to return it at this point. Never had this problem with the older system.

            Comments about West Marine Manual Oil Extractor - 6.5L:

            Tired of clean up (and using every rag on the boat) after every oil change on my main engine and generator, I was ready to try anything. The device pulls the used oil through the dipstick after putting on a vacuum with a few pumps. It did take some time ~10min (the hotter the oil the better). But, after removing the drain plug there was no oil left in the sump.

            Easy to carry to the waste oil station at the marina. Clean up was nothing more than pulling some hot water and dish soap to clean out the dipstick tubing.

                        The pump and canister are fine. The tube is not long enough to extract all of the oil out. The product is made for Mercury marine engines but the tube is not long enough to get all the oil out.

                          I just finished changing the transmission fluid & v-drive oil on my boat...this made it very easy & worked better than I expected. I had one of the small 12V types before & this was much better. Worked quick & easily without even warming the oil first.

                                Changed the oil on my two Honda Jet Skies. Everything worked fine. Sucked the oil right out without any difficulties. Good quality product. Did NOT have to drain the oil into gallon containers. Just took the filled extractor to the county oil recycle place and dumped away. Thought the extractor was a bit expensive however you get what you pay for and this was worth it.

                                I'm guessing the pump drained the oil in less than three minutes after warming up the engine for about five minutes. I used the Mercruiser adapter and that gave me the full diameter of the dipstick to suck out the oil since I didn't have to insert one of the tubes into the dipstick. Probably gave it about 15 to 20 pumps to get it started. This pump was actually fun to use because it is so efficient. Changed the oil in 10 minutes. ..changed the oil filter in half an hour (mine is underneath the engine).

                                The instructions basically say that you pump about 25 times and let the extractor do its thing until all the oil is pumped out. Mine didn't work that way. After it pumped about a quart out of my engine it stopped. So I pumped some more. Nothing. Then again. Nothing. It wasn't until I released all of the pressure out of the pump and then did another 25 pumps that I got out another 1/2 quart or so. Then I had to repeat the process another 10 times. All in all, it got out over 5 quarts so I am happy. It just wasn't nearly as easy as they make it sound. The whole process took about 2 hours. But it got the oil out so overall I'm happy.
