they are a pain in the azz especially when the aluminum gets rounded out. They make a
hand turn model with a "T" that keeps it from falling to the ground when draining. Ford has them for about $20.

I went at bought a 36Mm and used my ratchet. I did not have much trouble getting it off. There was not a lot of room, but I made a lot of small turns. But putting it back on was a pain. The threads would not line up for nothing. I tried for 30 minutes to get it to thread on. Would not work. I just changed the oil and got to looking at the oil filter cap. Same one. So I took off the oil cap, slip in the fuel filter and it screwed on by hand. I took the one that was on the fuel filter and put it on the oil filter. For some reason, I guess it was the angle on the fuel filter, it would not screw on. Plastic threads going into metal ones can be harry.
