    I'm not sure what kind of fluid is in my Scag walkbehind. I want to change the filter so how do I get ALL of the oil out of the pumps and wheel motors and do I have to if I decide to use a synthetic. I'm not really sure what it calls for. Tony

    15w-50 mobil one is what my dealer says, just take off the lines to the wheel motors and spin the wheel a few times

    I was thinking about an oil excavator. I saw an electric model being used at a dealer once but, I can't seem to find it on the web. I guess I could make a simple one with a small electric pump but, the unit I saw was self contained.
    I'd like to have one because it makes oil changes so simple and clean. Tony
