oil/fluid evacuation pumps

Does anyone have much experience with these?

I've been looking at this one: EWK Pneumatic / Manual 6.5 Liter Oil Changer Vacuum Fluid Extractor

The SHO has a number of things that need regular fluid maintenance, that are also really hard to get to.....thought this might make my life a little easier

the transfer case/ power transfer unit is a royal PITA to get to, and requires downpipe removal. but people have had some luck getting just the fill out, and extracting the oil that way

a lot use small electric diesel pumps, which range from $30-$200....this seems more usable across the garage...

A lot of people I know uses pumps like that, but I cannot speak to that particular one. They do the trick. A buddy of mine has a Saturn that the previous owner claimed the oil pan drain plug had never been opened because he always used one of these. He included the pump with the car.

I use a hand pump mighty vac on on my diff because there is no drain plug and the back cover is a cast aluminum piece that includes the mount. It does the trick.

I am also a fan of these, but mine broke and I need to pick up another one.

I have a knockoff of the PELA 6000 oil extractor that works great with my RX-8 and CX-3. Something inside the 2.7L Hyundai motor tore up the tube and I fixed it with some heatshrink tubing until I discovered it wouldn't fit inside the narrower dipstick tube of the CX-3.

I called up PELA and they sold me a replacement tube for $10-20 (I can't remember). It was identical to the one that came on my knock-off version.

If you are in the Blo/No area, you can borrow my Mityvac provided you get it back to me.
