    Oil Extractor recommendations?

    Can anyone recommend a decent oil extractor? I used to use my friend's that looked like a big white paint bucket and had a pump on top and you hooked up the little cables to the jetski battery. I noticed they are quite pricey. Would like to keep it under $100 and would prefer one that you can hook to the battery but a manual one might work. We have 2 large skis so the less work, the better-- thanks!

    only one extractor to use.. the mity-vac or the similar looking product out of canada. any good shop can get one for you. I also have the little ball shaped one..but I just use that for injection tank work. I wouldn't use that one for day to day stuff.

    Thanks Pete- unfortunately, it says it works with compressed air. Hard to roll one of those air compressors down to the dock--sorry, forgot to mention, we keep these things on the lake.

    Some of the mity-vacs are hand-pump operated. Good brand.

    Moeller has worked seamless for me. You can purchase them at your local West Marine if you have one. It's definitely a nice quality piece.

    that's the one I use. the only downside was that the siphon tubes can't deal with hot oil and eventually get brittle. I had one break off in a 4-tec dipstick tube and I was very lucky to get the bit out with minimal pain.

    buy new extractor tubes yearly and you should be good to go

    My pela 6000 has a metal with plastic outside tube - been using it for 8 years on my TDI - and just did my first 10hr oil change on my VXS with it a couple of hours ago.

    I use the HT moto oil pump extractor, very simple to use and painless

    I just use the cheap Moeller. It's only $28 and does just as good a job as the others.
