Pit stop oil filling

The pump and basic drill can be sourced for little money. Nobody will bother to remove the pump after each top-up job.

Topping up large amounts of oil can be very time consuming and often very messy too, especially when you start losing your concentration after the fifth jug. Some workshops use special tap-operated oil tanks for these chores, but such facilities are a bit over the top for a regular farm workshop. So here’s what you can do to make your own oil-filling set-up: buy an inexpensive water pump and an equally inexpensive drill, and then connect the two. Ideally, you will also add an oil line, complete with coupler, to the pump’s output.
