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.

Used to change my transmission fluid. It caught most of the old fluid and held paper towels too.

      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.

              I had one that lasted 15 years. I hope this one will last that long too. Inexpensive and with the spout it is easy to recycle oil.

                  I enjoyed this drip pan. It fit under my ramped car very well, and the width of the mouth allowed for little to no drips on my driveway. The spout design is good for slow even pouring. If you are in a hurry then the oil may come out the top, slow and steady wins the race with this. Durable and easily cleaned once drained thoroughly.

                    This is a solid drain pan. It is huge, but easy to empty. I have two and one of the cap attachments broke. It's no big deal though. The lid still screws on. The pan is so big that even if you lost the cap, you would be fine.

                    Does what I needed it to. It is hard to carry when full, like others have said. Also my drain cap broke the first time I unscrewed it.

                        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.
