I'd like to see the oil drain on a Walker GHS get oil on the deck.
VERY good point!
Thanks Luc(?)
I thought about that even as I hit the 'submit' button.
A REAL good alternative, IMHO would be a short nipple to screw into engine case, and a piece of glass reinforced silicone tube with a plug in it, so you could still route the drain to a funnel or other recovery vessel.

Doesn't extend out side the bottom frame, and I couldn't pump the oil out of the 20HP Kohler engine. I always pump my 15HP engines but can't on the bigger engines?
