A good fluid evacuator is a must if you are an auto-shop service professional or vehicle hobbyist. From the vehicle tank, used oil should be removed regularly. Otherwise, the performance goes downwards day by day. Fluid evacuators help to take the oil out from the tank and leave it empty for filling new oil.
It is not a surprise that you’ll find different types of fluid evacuators in the market. All don’t ensure a similar performance. No matter what you are, a service professional or a vehicle hobbyist, you’ll surely search for the one that performs best. Here I have one for you.
I have tasted some of the oil evacuators found in the market and came to a decision that Mityvac 7201 Fluid Evacuator Plus is the best one I have used till now. With a lot of different advantages, it has surprised me. Let’s talk more about it.
Large Storage Support
If the fluid evacuator comes with a large tank, you won’t have to dispose of the fluid again and again. Thus it saves some time.
Mityvac 7201 has a huge tank of 8.8 liters. As a result, you can use it again and again without dispensing the oil each time you extract the fluid. Using the advantage of the huge storage, you can extract oil and other fluid from large vehicle tanks too.
Manufactured Using Quality Materials
If the fluid evacuator gets leaks, oil or other fluid might spread out on the floor and create a total mess. So, it should be made of quality materials for being safe from leaks.
Mityvac 7201 fulfills this criterion too. It is manufactured using quality materials for ensuring long time use without any problem. For example, the reservoir is made of durable polyethylene. As a result, strong hits can hardly make leaks on the tank.
Besides, the polyethylene reservoir also keeps rust or corrodes away from it. So, you don’t have to face the extra hazard of cleaning rust after using a few days.
Similarly, other parts of this evacuator are also made of quality materials to ensure durability, strength, and efficiency.
Automatic Flow Control Valve
Being overloaded is a common problem in the case of fluid evacuator. In many evacuators, there is no scope of checking the amount of fluid. In that case, fluid may spread on the floor, creating a mess.
To ensure safety from overfilling, this evacuator comes with automatic flow control valve. This valve automatically stops extracting fluids when the amount of fluid in the reservoir reaches 8 liters.
As a result, your floor remains safe from the mess created by used fluids and you remain free from the hazard of cleaning the floor.
External Pump Design
One of the best things about Mityvac 7201 is the external pump design.
Almost all the fluid evacuator comes with pumps inside the reservoir. As a result, you have to face problems at the time of working in a tight place. Mityvac 7201 doesn’t have such type of problem.
The external pump design allows you to use it in some tough-to-reach situations easily. It also allows you to reach easily to the different parts used to control the pump.
The base of the fluid evacuator must be solid. Otherwise, it may fall on the ground and spread the fluid in it.
The solid base of the evacuator allows you to keep it stable on the ground. As a result, it doesn’t fall on the ground on small shakes or hits. For more safety, it comes with foot stabilizer. Pressing the stabilizer with your feet, you can keep the tool stable and safe.
Versatility is important in case of fluid evacuator, especially if you are using it in an auto repair shop. Mityvac 7201 supports you at this point too.
Using this evacuator, you can extract and dispense a lot of different types of fluids, including engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, coolants, gear oil, power steering fluids, etc. But you have to avoid extracting gasoline with it.
