Sump oil sucker

FED up with grovelling under engines to get at the sump plug? Sealey claims to have the answer.

Its TP69 Oil and Fluid Extractor uses vacuum power to suck all types of engine, transmission and lub-rication oils from cars, stationary engines and machinery. In effect, no more grovelling at service time.

To operate, the extractor probe is fed down the dipstick check, and the extractor connected. Pumping a handle creates the necessary vacuum to lift the oil out of the engine and into the units 6.5-litre (1.4gal) container. Price of the TP69, which can also empty big tanks and drums, is £60. &#42
