I would think one of those cheap 'strap' wrenches would work on this, unless it is really tightened down. With a rubber o-ring, I would think it would not need to be tightened down much.

It seems like we are going backwards with these cartridge oil filters.
They wer common on cars from the 50's and they were usually a mess to deal with. You had to use a suction gun to suck out the remaining oil in the canister.
Chevys had them until the late 60's. They made a conversion kit that we would install so we could use spin on filters.
The ones used on Chrysler products with a hemi V-8 were just palin nasty to change and no matter how careful you were they would usually leak afterwards requiring the job to be redone.

I think the cartridge design is an improvement. As for leaking, the spin on reliance on the rubber gasket to keep oil from leaking out seems to me to be more likely to be a problem.
I've got guys who change my oil for $5-$10 more than the materials would cost me to buy, so far they have done so with no problems on our cartridge filter equipped 2007 Mazda6 and 2005 Jetta.

The cartridge filter on my MINI does tend to leave a little mess.

They make a conversion kit for the cartridge filters of the present to change back to a spin on filter.

I figured this was spam at first, but I took a look at the site anyway. Nowhere could I find a standard floorjack nor air compressor.
In any case, I'd look to Harbor Freight personally. I mean, Fleet's cheapest impact gun is $96, and that's 1/2". Harbor Freight has a 3/4" for $59.99. Not to mention Harbor Freight has brick and mortar stores to avoid expensive shipping costs for such heavy items.
