I've used one of these commercially and been happy with it.

OIL Sump Pump

Are you asking for a portable system to change the oil, or an installed system for changing oil?
I've see installed systems you literally position a valve, pump the oil out, flip the valve and pump new oil in.
I use a vacuum container like this one, but a little higher capacity, I think 6 L

These are different, but more expensive options

OK that didn't work, go here and enter oil change pumps in the search

Re: OIL Sump Pump

If you are not installing a electric pump system permanently, The simple vacuum canister is great. The nice part is you don't have to suck oil out with a pump and then transfer to a container. It's all in one. I've used mine a lot. Be sure you get a big enough one so it will hold all your oil.

Re: OIL Sump Pump

If you have room, a waste oil tank plumbed to a pump and the engines makes changing oil easy. Most commercial fuel docks have a pump and narrow hose for sucking out those tanks. They also can suck out engine oil directly.
