Femco® is the ultimate solution for accelerating and enhancing service on your concrete equipment and trucks. An on-site oil change within seconds, and back to work immediately? That’s achievable with Femco® Draintechnology’s oil drain plugs.

Construction and Demolition

In Construction and Demolition projects, the use of both small and large equipment is crucial. Meeting deadlines for projects is not always easy. Vehicle and machine maintenance is time-consuming and can cause significant delays. Oil changes are perhaps the most cumbersome part of it all. We explain how the easiest way to simplify this process, and save both money and time below.

Concrete equipment paired with Femco® drain plugs

For trucks, excavators, paving/earth-moving equipment, or any other concrete equipment, Femco® offers oil drain valves. Femco has been a well-known brand in the concrete industry for over 40 years. Our drain systems can be used for engines, transmissions, gearboxes, and any other application requiring fluid replacement. Whether you’re searching for a drain system for a Putzmeister pump, Caterpillar excavator, or a Bobcat track loader, Femco has it. Femco® provides an oil drain plug for every brand or type of equipment.

How do Femco® plugs work?

Femco drain plugs replace the standard OEM plug. When it’s time for an oil change, no tools are needed. Simply unscrew the dust cap and attach the drainer to the plug. The valve will open, allowing the oil to flow out of the pan. It’s a completely sealed drain system, and there will be no oil leakage. Hot oil can be drained, eliminating the need to wait for it to cool. For service on larger fleets, consider Femco’s Click Drain system, which can be combined with an EVAC Unit to drain oil within seconds under suction power.

Femco's plugs provide several benefits when it comes to draining fluids:

Drain fluids hot. With our closed drain system, you can now drain fluids hot without risk of burns. Whether it’s oil or other fluids, our system allows for the draining of hot fluids at engine temperature. This means that hot oil can flow out effortlessly, resulting in a smoother and more efficient draining process. By draining fluids hot, you’ll experience less residue left behind, which is highly beneficial for the health and performance of your engine.

No more risk of burning hands. Our closed drain system is designed to ensure maximum safety. It operates in a fully enclosed manner, the valve is only open when a drainer is securely attached to the plug. The drainer acts as the key to open the valve of the drain plug, allowing for controlled and safe fluid drainage. With this innovative system, you can confidently perform fluid changes without worrying about the risk of burns.

Safer workplace. No more messy and slippery oil spills on the shop floor.

Easy to use. The thread sizes of our drain system are perfectly suited to fit oil pan, ensuring a smooth installation process. You’ll find that attaching the drainer to the plug is a breeze, and it conveniently accommodates plugs of all sizes. Additionally, our system allows for effortless fluid disposal. By connecting a hose, you can easily guide the fluids to a designated disposal container.

Engine oil

Draining the motor oil is a simple yet vital maintenance task that should be performed at regular intervals. By removing old, contaminated oil and replacing it with fresh oil, you enhance engine performance, protect against wear and tear, improve heat dissipation, and extend the overall lifespan of your engine. Remember, regular oil draining is a small investment that yields significant long-term benefits for your vehicle. Femco drain plugs are perfect for improving this process, and thousands of hours of engine oil draining have already been saved by our plugs.

Hydraulic oil

Regularly replacing hydraulic oil is a critical maintenance practice for machinery and equipment that rely on hydraulic systems. Femco’s plugs can also be used for hydraulic systems. Ultimately, this maintenance task contributes to prolonging the life of machinery and equipment, enhancing operational efficiency, and reducing downtime in industrial applications.

Transmission oil

Regularly changing transmission oil is a fundamental maintenance task for vehicles equipped with automatic or manual transmissions. By draining the old transmission oil and replacing it with fresh oil, this process helps ensure smooth gear shifting, prevent excessive wear, and maintain the overall health of the transmission. Femco’s plugs are also used for draining transmission oil.


Femco oil drain valves can even be used to drain coolant. Regularly replacing coolant (or antifreeze) is a vital maintenance task for vehicles to ensure optimal engine cooling and prevent overheating. By draining the old coolant and replenishing it with fresh coolant, this process helps maintain proper temperature regulation, prevents corrosion, and extends the life of the cooling system.
