Fluid extractor recommendations

Anyone have any experience or recommendations for a decent fluid extractor? I’m mainly looking for something to use to change transmission fluid without dropping the pan. I’d just be looking at a manual unit, nothing fancy. I don’t suppose I need a top of the line device, as I doubt I’ll use it even once a year, but I don’t want to buy something super cheap that’ll leak everywhere and be a general pain in the butt that I’d regret wasting money on. Thanks.

Do a Google search for Mityvac 7201 or Mityvac 7400 and either of those should meet your needs.

Look for the 12 volt Marine oil extractor at Bass Pro or Walmart.
Cheaply made but cheap to buy, just remember to warm up the fluid so it easily flows

Thank you both. Will look into those.
