Nice and big so oil doesn't get everywhere when draining the pan and filter. Holds tons of fluid, but I only ever have a max of about 6 quarts in it because it'll start to slosh around when you pick it up. It cleans out easily with a rag and is pretty easy to pour into a container (w/a funnel of course). The plastic is a little thin in my opinion, so hopefully it holds up over years of being slid on the garage floor.

big, but a little too big for my cars

a bit cumbersome, but really cheap ([$]) makes it a good deal for a truck or high clearance vehicle.

Comments about FloTool 5 Gallon Drain Pan:

Brought it to do an oil change because my old catch pan broke. I have had many but this one put it down and your done. The wide opening catches all the fluids. and the lip on the top keeps it from spilling over on that first big purge when the drain plug comes out. Easy pour spout allows it to be drained back into the container for easy disposal. Highly recommended.

Reasonable priced catch pan

By

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Nice Big Opening F

Cons

  • Screw Cap Weak

Best Uses

  • Oil Change Or Gene

Comments about FloTool 5 Gallon Drain Pan:

This is a great catch pan for fluids and or oil change. It has a nice stable bottom. The only part which needs improvement is the pour spout screw cap is a little cheap on design. Since there is no top cover, the pour spout really doesn't need a lid, but since it has one it would make sense to have a decent cap. I have not used the item yet with hot oil from a car, so I am hoping the plastic is capable of withstanding direct drainage of hot oil into the pan. I think anyone who needs a lightweight, easily storable pan for fluid capture should consider this option.

Great drip pan!

By

Pros

  • Large size
  • Lip around the rim prevents spills
  • Solid material

Cons

  • Drain needs more funnel shape
  • Plastic design holds onto oil

Best Uses

    Comments about FloTool 5 Gallon Drain Pan:

    This is a great drain pain for the price! It beats the cheap ones that fold in on themselves with 5qts of oil. This one is a strong structure for your everyday car or truck oil change. Sides are deep and the size is large to make sure you dont miss the pan and hit the garage from splatters. The added lip on the rim helps a lot with pouring used oil out. The drain is a good addition but would benefit from a redesign on the opening to the drain to allow oil to flow into the drain better and the plastic valleys and designs hold on to pesky oil makes cleaning it require a little mlre work. Great purchase otherwise, would buy again, it gets the job done!

      Honestly, for the money, this is a really decent pan. It could be a few mils thicker, but then it wouldn't be as cheap. For home use, buy it.

      Comments about FloTool 5 Gallon Drain Pan:

      The size (took 6 quarts of oil with no problem), the lip design (preventing spills for overflow sloshing with movement), and pour spout make this the easiest to use oil drain pan I've ever owned.

              A:

              Hi DuckMaster, my answer to your question on the Rhino Gear 5-Gallon Drain Pan - part# 11845 is that Advance Auto Parts does sell Made in the USA products as well as products manufactured from many other countries in order to keep our pricing competitive. Please also keep in mind that many suppliers have multiple manufacturing plants that could result in different countries of origin for the same part.
