    You can suck it out with a suction gun,
    You can remove a wing hose, put the loose end in a bucket/container and run the function until it is empty.
    Have some one help you, if the hose comes out it will be a big mess..
    You can put a pan under the reservoir then remove the four bolts that hold the reservoir on
    You need to remove the reservoir to clean the pick up screen anyway.
