Northern Industrial Tools Steel Low-Profile Oil Drain Dolly and Pump - 15 Gallons
Less expensive than others
The first oil cart we received came in damaged and I promptly called Northern and they gave me a return authorization and sent out a new cart. Customer service was very nice and appoligized for our problem. The second oil cart arrived without any problems. Assembly was easy and we used the cart right away, beats carrying 5 gallon pails of oil through the shop to the used oil tank. I would like the hose end to have a hook on it or a bent nozzle that doubles as a hook. The cart does the same job as some of the more expensive oil carts we looked at that cost 3 times as much.

oil drain dolly and pump
Works as advertised. It would be nice to have a hook or retainer on the end of the drain hose to hook on the used oil receptacle. I also put some wire mesh on top of the perforated drain cover to reduce splash when draining tractors and trucks.

Excellent product for the price
This is the most versitle oil drain pan I have ever used. It is lightweight when empty, is low to the ground, has internal baffles to help prevent splashing. However, the hoses and fittings are cheap and leaked immediately. This is an excellent drain pan for changing fluids on large trucks and equipment.

Excellent item. But the pump is not constructed very well. It takes two men to empty ( trying to keep the tank still). Hopefully a better pump can be added later.

I like it but not perfect.
I like it but... It is expensive for the casual oil changer. The pump works good but leaves a little oil in the bottom of the pan. I would expect that it would. It would be better if angled toward the drain point which you can by lifting but engineering should have caught this. It may be too tall for vehicles that aren't lifted or on ramps. It is a close fit on my Ram 1500 with out putting on ramps. Good size it is large enough to change oil and filter without leaking oil on the floor.

The pump work wonderful. You can roll almost anywhere. Hold more than enough for a big truck oil change. The dislikes are the grate on top when oil hits it it splatters. The hose is a little flimsy. It is a great product we have it at more than one plant.

Built well. Works great. Having the pump is hugely important for draining. Only complaint would be the handle is a little floppy, but that is not a big deal for me at all. I would and have recommended this to my buddies.
