My Husq has a Koehler 13 Pro and this will be my first oil change on it. I know how to change oil, my question is how do you change oil on the Husq without making a mess?

It has a hole about 2.5" -3" below the oil drain, but I can't get a pan under the frame of the husq. Can some one post a pic or explain how not to make a mess? I do not want oil all over my garage floor..lol. :hammerhead:

Thanks,
Donald

Donald,

If your engine doesn't have a quick drain valve (top one below) you can go to any Kohler dealer and get/order one, Once installed a piece of 5/8" automotive heater hose can be slid onto the valve (at oil change time then removed) extending it to any length required to clear the frame.
