I need to buy a fluid extractor to change my oil. Skidim carries a unit called "Suck Up" at $60.00. Anyone had experience with this particuliar brand? (try and restrain the humor)

I got the one from West Valley Marine, cant remember the name, but it was the top of the line they had and it had all the necessary fittings to hook right up to the oil hose out the bottom and sucked it out real well. I think it was around 75.00 but dont quote me on that.

You might want to verify that it is big enough to get all the oil out at once without stopping and emptying. I have the Pela 2000. I let gravity drain the oil through the hose pushed through the drain under the pylon. I only needed a small pump to do the tranny flush. I have to pump the Pela more than I thought I would to make it work. 10 pumps every 3 minutes or so.

I use to sell one made by Mityvac............has a "t" shaped pump handle at the top, tall white plastic tank.Work well, comes with some long plastic "straws" to suck out fluids. Try NAPA auto parts on other parts stores, also MAC tools and SNAP-ON sells them too.

I have got one. I'll have to get the name for you in the AM. I changed oil in my boat three times due to some water in the pan and never had to empy it. I think it holds 15qts. Has an electric pump and the hose goes right down the dipstick hole. Pumps it out in about 10 min. Hooks right to the battery. When done coil up the hose and wires, has a carry handle and carry it to Autozone to dump. For those of you in boat lift or houses it is the only way to go. I think it was about $100 or so. I'll go look at it now. Be right back. Works great for the transmission as well!!!

The Suck-Up is terrific. Its huge, works great, and is a quality unit. I bought one for my dad to use on his tranny last year- it works great for that, but he's found a bunch of other uses for it as well. Highly recommended.

Great to hear! Based on $60 vs $135 And your experience with the "Suck Up" that seems the way to go.
Thanks to all who responded.

whew I thought this was going to be a really gay thread.

I have the dockside vacuum tank and have never used it, but it looks cool!

Drill operated pump from Napa. Under $10, but you do have to buy a couple hardware store fittings to hook it up to the drain hose.
Used mine to pump out boat motor oil, trans fluid, remove gas from snomobiles at end of season, start siphon for backyard irrigation system, etc, etc.
It finally quit pumping last fall after 4 yrs of varied use. Bought a new one for $9.
