Would you use a $29 oil extractor?

I removed the oil pan from my Accord, made a big mess, and wondered if there was an affordable way to extract it so that it wouldn't have made as much of a mess.

Maybe, for $29: 12V 60W Oil Change Pump Extractor

The video where I found the extractor: Google recommends skipping the first 37 seconds and stopping after about a minute, but the actual part with him using the extractor goes until 2:20. Of course, JR has a video using a commercial one: When he pulled the drain plug only a drop of oil came out, so that sounds pretty good!

However, I don't know how much oil it extracted from the filter.

Has anyone pulled vacuum on a filter?

Why am I not cleaning the driveway?!

Got to go!
