I just got an electric JABSCO unit. Haven't used it yet but that's what my tech uses. Drains in a few minutes.

I purchased one last year made by Pela. MityVac also has a similar extractor - game changer for DIY oil and transmission in boats. Also used it for automobiles as well.

Purchased this on last week on Amazon.
Can't keep paying $250 per oil change every 25 hours. Gonna try myself other than before storage and winterization. The shop can do that one.

I've had topsider - I found it pretty messy to use.

The Mity Vac is what I went do - nice to see how full it is (topsider you can't) also the top sider can pull oil into the vacuum pump pretty easily which will spray out when you pump it.

The 1/4" NPT barb fitting can be substituted for a standard air hose fitting (1/4" npt female to male air line) which is usually cheaper than a proper barbed fitting.

The MityVac if you buy one, before you use it for oil, pull the lid off ~8 phillips screws. there is an aluminum cylinder into the tank which has a sealed end, clean it with brake cleaner and cover the end seam with JB weld or silicone caulk, then reassemble it, pull a vacuum and cap the line so that it pulls some of that goo into the vacuum pump end. Otherwise the sealant they use in assembly will fail if you suck up certain chemicals.

I have this one, cannot recommend. Works well but likes to leak oil out the yellow part of the pump.

Oil Extractor?

1) Get the extractor, virtually all work so long as 6 qt capacity so it is once and done. Warm the block by running first.

2) Any oil extractor works really well via the barbed fitting on MC oil pan hose end. Can do so quickly, cleanly and sitting on a trailer or lift from the main cabin.

All else goes south if you otherwise use the dip stick which slows it down, may leave a extractor hose stuck in the block, and could cause leaks elsewhere in any extractor which is working too hard to suck it via the small dipstick.

Yep, thatís what she said.

Mityvac. Easy to use, incredibly quick if the oil is warm, no mess, no fuss.
