I bought this unit 2 seasons ago from the local WM store. Overall, it does exactly what it's supposed to do. I am happy with it, and the pump is quiet.

The only problem I have experienced is that the unit is top-heavy due to the weight of the motor assembly on top. So top-heavy, in fact, that it cannot be safely carried by the handle that comes with it. To add insult to injury, the lid is not sealed, resulting in a potential oil spill if tipped over. Be very careful when transporting this unit in your vehicle that it does not topple while driving.

Other than the tipping issue, I am very pleased with the performance of the unit. I have found that I am more likely to do oil changes on ALL my small engines on the recommended schedule due to the ease of use provided by this unit. That in itself will pay dividends over time with engines that are happily sipping clean oil at all times.

This item is not as at appears in the catalog. The handle is not attached to the lid with hog rings, as is shown in the picture, like the Jabsco pump. There is a hook that is supposed to clip to the bucket handle, this method does not work well. The unit is unbalanced when carrying. Also, the only position that the hook clips in properly, does not allow oil to pour out easily, it makes for a messy pour. The description also states that the unit is fully assembled, not true. I should have spent the extra few dollars and purchased the Jabsco.

        Comments about West Marine Professional Oil Changer, 12V Bucket:

        This thing worked great. One super small draw back is the size of the bucket BUT you can use a 5 gallon bucket with this set up so really isn't an issue. It has nice long lines an batt clips so u can set ur bucket outta the way. It's not super fast so be patient an prepared. But all an all love it.

            It worked well. Much easier than a hand pump. Just a little pricey.
