The Ariens snowblower with the AX291 engine, is a real pain to change oil on. It involves blocking up the snowblower, removing the wheel, taking off the drain cap and lowering the side of the snow blower to allow the oil to drain.
By using this valve, with a straight adapter and a short length of vinyl hose, I simply put an empty oil container on the end of the hose and open the valve. In two minutes the oil is drained and simply close the valve and refill with new oil.
Great time & back-saver.
The Ariens AX291 engine uses the 12mmx1.5mm valve.

It looks like I can use it however the Polaris meCHANIC SAID HE WOULD NOT INSTALL IT IN MY rzr BECAUSE OF THE ground clearance afraid I would knock it off. I have 13 inch clearance so I think I will try it anyway.
