Default Antifreeze fluid extractors

Has anybody used one? Do they really work and if so, what is a good one to buy?

Thanks,
Danny

Do you mean a compressor powered fluid extractor, or an EPA mandated antifreeze fluid filter machine?

I think that is 3 questions.

In Ca. antifreeze is Hazardous waste. You merely drain it into the old container, and take it to Haz Mat. FREE in the O.C.

The EPA mandates that dealers use a reclaimerI think)


Home use for sucking out any fluid:

I have been buying the Sierra antifreeze for the past several years.

Its $14 a gallon but we have to start taking care of the environment a little better.

It ain't that much effort to siphon out the old antifreeze and take it to the city on haz waste day.

I agree Jim. Imagine 200,000,000 people a year dumping oil and other toxins into the ground? It's insane. If the oceans die, we all die.
