Because drain plugs aint where they should be...
I use this. Got it at Harbor Freight and charge it up with the air compressor. Does an excellent job. It was a good purchase.
Do your self a favor.
Buy a couple of these.
Don’t buy a pump up unless you hate the user.
We use them for every oil that can’t be drained and must be extracted.
Just flip the switch and let 'er drain.
I use a pump up extractor like the one you posted Mike. Works great, the layout of the Cleanco's drains make it slow as molasses otherwise.
Such a wonderfully designed machine by IDIOTS!
If a manufacturer mounts a blower in a space that you cannot get to the drain plug there should be a remote drain line installed to a location where you are able to do so.
Get the amazon one, I have it kicks ass for 650 blower and pump, Pump is a PITA WITHOUT.. Also can use on engine, huge time saver...You'll love it
I would strongly encourage all who use this quick valve to install a plug at the end Hose attached to this drain valve. Always fill oil including hose to level, yes I know go ahead and waste a little oil it will be cheaper.
I've heard of several inadvertent draining incidents that killed blowers or pumps.
I seriously think the draining issue is not needed very often, if at all.
How often do you drain or change the oil in your differential?
I agree. We are not talking internal combustion engines where the oil gets contaminated. I usually put synthetic blower oil in them and never touch them for 5-6000 hours except to check the glass sight gauges for proper oil level.
