    They work quite well. I know several people that use that particular brand of extractor. I have a pre-lube system on my mowers that uses an external 12v pump to bring up the oil presure before I start the engine. Saves the engine from the reportedly 60% engine wear at start-up. It also functions as an easy way to change the oil. I just hook up a hose to the quick disconnect, turn a small valve, press the button and all the oil gets pumped out of the engine into a container. No drain plugs to fuss with anymore. I have a quick disconnect that also alows me to use the pump system on other machines to change the oil.

    Could you let me know where you got your preluber, I bought a hi mileage car once that had one on it, the car was in good shape. Thanks

    That looks like a great investment. I am glad I saw this post.

    burnandreturn,

    Does the quick disconnect fit right into where the drain plug should be. An old Troy Bilt WB I had had a similar valve I thought was very useful. Where can you buy the quick disconnects.

    I'm working on a pre-lube/oil change package. The packages I've found are not geared towards small engines so I've had to configure my own. The pump needs to be capable of withstanding the elevated temperatures of hot oil. They need to be chemical resistant, etc. etc. I'm very close to having all the details worked out as to a total synergistic system.

    What would be the price difference in the two? The air I am sure is more economical. If you have a prelube system then that would make the difference between the two. Can we see a picture? And where can I purchase one once they go to market? Will you be selling these online?

    In the picture Prime Line's model seems to be simple with less parts to break, but wouldn't have a pre lube option.
