Bass Pro Shops 12V Oil Changer
Good pump poor directions
While I have not used to change engine oil I have used to change tranmission oil. As you know a Mastercraft tranmission has to be pumped out. Worked well and did so in just min. with an engine temp of about 70 degrees.
However the insturctions do not tell you that the small hose is pick up only. If reversed the hose blows off and oil come out of the pump full force LOL. What a mess.
But pump works great for what I used for.

Very Handy Machine
This oil changer works well for removing oil from problem machines like pushmowers, tillers, and other equipment with small engines. These types of machines are notorious for getting oil all over the place when draining them or the drain plug is incoveniently located. I gave it four stars because the tubes that come with it are too stiff. The machine would be easier to use if the tubes were not permanently curled. Keep in mind this is a $20.00 machine so don't expect it to last a lifetime. So far mine has held up well.

Not Worth it
Same complaints as previous reviewers. The tube going into the oil pan is too short. I was only able to get 3 quarts out and I had the machine right up to the dipstick tube. The fittings leaked oil and made a mess. The only positive thing is that it did get the oil out fairly quickly but given that two quarts of dirty oil are still in the pan and the mess it made, this really is not worth the money. I’m taking it back for a refund.

12v OIL CHANGER
I used this on my Mercruiser 305. It takes forever to pump out the oil and won't pump the engine completely. Comparing it to a hand pump, I would rate it poor. It's also very messy. The oil stays in the tubes and pump and the entire unit must be placed in a bucket to keep from getting oil over everything. I'm taking it back for a refund.
