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:

    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.

              Comments about FloTool 5 Gallon Drain Pan:

              This is a great drain pan for the price. Plenty big enough to catch all the oil. I drained 5 plus liters from a BMW M3 and didn't spill a drop. Only a couple drops were spilled when I poured it into jugs for recycling, and that was mostly just from me being a bit careless. I highly recommend this pan. Others have called it "Flimsy" but I was fine with it. My primary concern was getting the oil from this pan into the jugs, and that was simple as well. As another customer said...take your time and you'll be fine and not spill a drop anywhere.

                    Purchased unit in May but did not use it until today. Used it to catch 4 quarts of warm motor oil from my Honda. All the oil ended up on the floor in my garage. Unit leaked terribly - oil just poured out. Past 30 day warranty. Will buy a better one and check it for leaks using water before going through this mess again.

                        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.
