Product Description

Perfect for oil changes and ridding excess fluid from hard to reach places, the Oil Extractor utilizes a powerful pump that creates a vacuum so that continuous pumping is not necessary. Usage is easy, just insert one of the included extension tubes into your engine’s dipstick tube, attach extraction tubes and give the cylinder up to 15 pumps - and watch the cylinder fill up! 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.

  • Extracts oil through dipstick tube
  • Powerful pump creates a vacuum - so continuous pumping is not necessary!
  • 6.9 quart capacity
  • Extracts both warm and cold oil

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.

Oil Extraction Tubes are too short

  • Overall Unit Looks Good

Cons

  • Tubes Are Too Short

Best Uses

    Comments about Manual Oil Changer 6.9 Quart:

    Although this unit looks to be built well, it is useless at this time for changing the oil in my boat as the tubes are at least 1 foot too short. ( 6.0 L PCM ). It always seems to be the most inexpensive thing in the kit that causes the biggest trouble. I am sure this company could supply longer tubes. Too long is not a problem, too short is a huge problem!

      Comments about Manual Oil Changer 6.9 Quart:

      Worked fine the first time. The second time I went to use it (different motor) and the hose was too short. The connections are weak and prone to leaking, which is why people complain about this unit. It's a bad design. If it had one long hose it would be much more reliable.

            Made my own oil sucker using a 5 gallon bucket and a vacuum pump. This is so much better! Wish I bought it years ago. I am actually looking forward to my next oil change. If you own a 4 stroke outboard, this is a no brainer buy it now.

                I used this item to change oil in my boat and jet ski. I have changed oil several times with hand pump units before. Hand pumps are slow, messy, inconvenient, you need three hands to operate. This unit is way better. As stated, this product is easy to use, clean, just attach the tubes lines to the pump and pump the handle a few times. Come back in 5 to 10 minutes and the oil is out of the motor. I have always dreaded changing oil in my boat, not any more. If you use it a few times you get your money back, so it is well worth the money you pay. The unit is well made and of good quality.
                My neighbor wants to use it next week.

                  I use this on my cars, its so much easier than going under the car and removing all the plastic so I can get to the drain plug. It does get all the old oil out. My filters are all up top, so that's easy also. Great product.

                    Stop reading now and go buy it. I hesitated because of the price but it's worth every penny. After messing around all day trying to change the oil on my super air nautique I bought this and 30 minutes later I was done. Opened the box, put it together, gave it about 20 pumps and let it sit till it was done. Great product.

                          Used it for the first time the other day to change the fluid in my Malibu ski boat transmission. It worked like a charm. I plan on using it for the engine oil now also. Couldn't be more pleased. Great product.
