    Default Back Yard Waste Oil Collection System

    I have been managing to chage the ten gallons of oil in my tractor with a 5 gal bucket because there are multible drains on the tractor and if I start with the highest one I get about 4.5 gals. It is cumbersum and prone to spillage.

    I needed to change the transmission oil in my dozer, which is about 20 gallons, and it all comes out at once, and fast.
    I had a 55 gal drum I had gotten from a factory in town for road sand and an old galvanized pan ( a plastic dishpan would work good ). I bought a 2" pvc shower drain, pipe, and a couple fittings at Home Despot. Mounted the drain in the side of the pan and plumbed it all up on a bank.
    After the oil was drained I removed the pipe from the drum, put a 2" plug in the bung, and rolled the drum up the bank. Then I picked up the drum with the FEL and a couple straps and refilled the empty 5 gal pails with waste oil through hose bib for recycling
    This scheme worked good - I did't spill a drop

    Makes me feel sorry for the flatlanders. This is an idea worth stealing.
