Godd about product
I use this product on a variety of tractors and so far has worked very well. I do wish it had a drain on the bottom instead of the top, it would be easier to drain.

My wife bought the pneumatic oil changer for me for Christmas. I was excited by the prospect of no longer climbing under the cars to change the oil. However, the oil changer was a big disappointment. It assembled quickly and easily. However NONE of the suction probes would work with our vehicles. They were all too short to reach the oil pan. We have a F-150, Jeep Liberty and a Ford E350 van. Additionally, with a 100 PSI of pressure from a large compressor, the unit would produce vacuum on the changer’s gage but at the probe tip there was barely any vacuum. Yes, the valves were in the proper operating positions, etc. This would be fine for small engines but let’s face it, nobody needs a changer like this for small engines.
It was returned for a refund

Excellent for hard to drain procedures.
Quality unit. Easy to use. No leaks. I've used on a sportbike in lieu of taking off the fairings. Also works well for draining power steering sump. I used it for front and rear differential pumpkins instead of removing all the bolts draining and having to redo the gaskets. Help you cut a few corners when appropriate.

I own a motor home and purchased this product to change oil in it and I was very disappointed with this product, this engine holds 28 quarts of oil. I ran engine to temp specified and after a hour or so I still didn't have a gallon of oil out of engine and now the oil has cooled down and it became even slower so I tried to change my oil in my generator which holds 3 quarts and it still took forever so I guess if you have a couple of days to change oil I guess it works great

8 Gallon Air-Operated Oil Changer
I purchased this for my shop. It works so much better than the old drain plug method. It is easy to empty also.

Well made product. Works very well.
Purchased this unit for use in our shop to evacuate fluids from vehicles. The assortment of extensions allows you to gain access to nearly any fluid cavity and the size of the tank means the suction does not fall off very fast. Very handy to have. The only thing I would like to see is a tank drain added.

Bought to use for removing oil from the sump of a diesel Onan generator. After running the generator for 15 minutes to make the oil more more fluid, I was able to extract the oil (15w-40) in less than 2 minutes as described. The changer does not lose any vacuum pressure until the oil is empty in the sump. The several lengths of dipstick insertion line are well selected as we have been able to match an included length to all of the dipsticks in the items where we have tried the changer so far. Works terrific and have used it on 3 vehicles in my fleet in addition to the gen-sets.

I have a motorcycle service shop and have found this Northern Air operated Oil Changer is a real time saver. I also attend motorcycle events where I have offered oil changes from a trailer and this 8-gallon model has preformed well not to mention it is a clean procedure as compared to traditional methods of changing oil.
I do wish it included spare O rings for the extractor tubes which is minor but for the price you can not find a better unit.
