Anyone using the fumoto drain valve?

I'm thinking about putting one on my truck but im concerned about how well it will hold up on the farm. Anybody have any issues with it? Can it hold up to the abuse of a farm truck or am i gonna be getting some leakage down the road?

Love mine. High quality product. I plan to install one on the wife's Jetta at next oil change. Jetta's require the removal of a belly "pan" to access the drain plug.

I recommend the valve with the hose connection. That way you can direct it right into a catch container. Makes it a real clean job. Go for it!
