Comments about Professional Oil Changer, 12V Bucket:

I have purchased cheaper oil extraction pumps in the past ($30 range) and have been disappointed with their performance and quality. After spilling oil during my last oil change I decided to bite the bullet and buy this machine. I have used it to change crankcase oil and transmission fluid on four boats and am very happy with the product. The product could use a better way to switch from dipstick extraction (small hose) to garden hose adapter (big hose). Currently you have to remove garden hose fitting to use dipstick extraction tube. Not a deal killer and certainly not hard to find a solution that will work for you. If you're thinking of buying a cheap oil extractor don't do it. Spend the extra money on this one. You'll be much happier.

        Comments about Professional Oil Changer, 12V Bucket:

        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.
