Best oil extractor

I need a good oil extractor for my transmission. Don't want something cheap but rather a pump that will last. Also I see a lot of people suck their engine oil out, I've always just drained from the pan. Is their a benifit to sucking it out vs draining?

What he said.
I used to drain too, until a neighbor got the mityvac.

looked at that but wasnt sure if it would work on my motor. a lot of people said it was great for bmw but not so good on other cars. so you guys had no issues with air leaks or failed gaskets on this unit?

You can get a vacuum tank that uses pressurized air to compress a spring-loaded diaphragm at Harbor Freight for about $80 (or less) or the battery powered pump for less than $120, as I linked to a few days ago. They both work very well, but the motorized pump is definitely faster.

The West Marine oil changer is a re-branded Mityvac 7400.

I use my neighbors 7400 for the transmission and engine oil. It is fast, clean and easy, no power required.
My neighbor is retired and does a lot of boat maintenance for folks on the side, his 7400 probably changes boat engine oil 25 times a season.

You sold me on this unit. After reading all the reviews sounds like a no brainer.
