changing engine oil with pump

https://www.amazon.com/EWK-Pneumatic...RK8PXE0GK1H6Q5

I have a 2016 900 Crew. I can't get underneath to get at the drain plug.

Can a pump like the above be used to pump the oil out? Can it get to the bottom of the sump?

Thanks.

Using a pump to empty the crankcase isn't advised as the dirty oil is not removed completely and will degrade the engine slowly.

It'll work well enough considering the short oil change intervals anyway...

MCC smart cars use similar as they have no sump bung at all... You just suck the oil out of the dipstick tube.

I use the same type of evacuation pump on marine diesel motors where there is no drain plug. Works just fine - but as pointed out won't be as thorough as a drained from the bottom change.
