Fluid Extractor / Vacume cannister, Homemade.
i have always had a need for a vacume cannister and since getting my 4S water bike i seen a need to build one, i already had a 5000 btu air conditioner compressor for recycle from a ruptured line so i had a catch/cannister tank built from alum, with a little rigging and some additional A/C parts and Hose i came up with the below, no hassel removing oil now, works great and will pull 30" vacume with no problem.

now are you a vendor ? if so state it !
i simply provided a simple solution to the high cost of general maintenance, which in most case's drives the end user away from retail stores.
btw what is the retail cost of a simple oil change ?

Who would want to haul all that crap around to just do a $20 oil change.
The oil sucker on this web sites store is cheaper and easier to use. That and its simple to drain and clean.
Extension cords and electricity with noisy pump, screw all that, go green and hand pump it.

am i a vendor... no
have i had to do an oil change where there was no access to electrical outlets? yes....
i also like to see what i am sucking out of my motor to see if there is water or gas in the oil do you have provisions for that or do you need to suck everything out of the motor and then pour it into another container?
to each there own.....
big difference between practicality and longevity of a product.
as for the high cost of general maintenance.... it costs no more to do an oil change in a ski than it does in a car. you gotta play to pay
oil is 8.29 a quart x 4 quarts
filter is 9.50
labor to do an oil change @ dealer 1/2 hour @85 an hour
the fluid extractor pays for itself the first time you do an oil change.
